DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2009
Pours bright golden to milky apricot with a high rocky head. Heady nose of lemon sherbet yeastiness, banana, coconut shavings and Malibu splashes underpinned with sprucey hop. Coniferous and yeasty tang smothered with an odd combo of syrup and spiritous bitterness that clings unpleasantly. Fine smelling ale that tastes increasingly wrong. Didn’t finish.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2009
bottle, pours a lucious hazy gold with a tall frothy white head; good lacing. Aroma is bready, some hay, and a little bit of booze. Light and sweet malt notes that mingle with a yeasty character. Turns boozy with a light alcohol burn and a touch of spice. Fairly well balanced, enough sweet, enough alcohol heat, the rum is only mildly noticable.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Bottle from Belgium Beers, Antwerp. Stable, big-bubbled white head. Pale golden colored body. Sweet candy-ish fruit aroma with notes of cork and almonds, paired with a whiff of Belgo-yeast and mild spices. Moderatly sweet fruity and yeasty taste. Underlying spice and citrus zest. Light-bodied for a 7-percenter. Unrefined sweetness in the finish. Absolutely drinkable, but not too well-rounded, and a tad too far on the sugary side for me.

Beer4000 (4618) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2009
Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Cloudy golden body with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast and spicy. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, citrus fruit, yeast and cane sugar. Rather mild and balanced on the sweeter side.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2008
<b>In short: </b>Can only summarize by: a fucked-up mess
<b>How: </b>Bottle 330ml, probably 1 year old or more
<b>The look: </b>Clear yellow-blonde body topped by a an initially large white head with medium retention
<b>In long: </b>Weird nose that I’d describe and alcoholised pineapple dessert. Taste is rather gross. Ripe bananas clash with an extra sweet honey/caramelize alcohol. Just to add to this weird mess I also got quite a bit of coconuts (!?). Some white bread and also some flowers. Very sweet. I didn’t get the advertised rum. Lively typical Belgian carbonation. Anyway this is a mess and I couldn’t finish the bottle. Named after a Belgian music band and if their music is as good as the beer then I’m wishing them the best of luck, cause luck is all that can help them.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2008
Cloudy golden pour with a very thick, frothy, white head. Decent aroma of citrus and yeast, not exciting, but not bad at all. The flavor, however is not really good, there’s yeast and citrus, but there’s also a definitely unpleasant flavor that is probably the rhum.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2008 Bottle from kris wines. Aroma is yeasty, estery, belgian spicey hop, sweet candy sugar. Taste is similar, some wheat like Wit character some coconut comign through, quite an interesting little drink. Now after rating it i see it has run in it and being a rum drinker i cannot taste any rum at all, but its pritty tasty stuff.

FatPhil (9643) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2008
330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki)
Pale gold, small head. Classic blond aroma - light malt. Sweet light malt taste. Harsh fizzy carbonation. Rum not obvious, but definitely sugary. Otherwise a fairly good blond. Short on the hops though. And flooded by the sugar.

sebletitje (6916) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2008
bottle 25cl. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is of honey / malty and yeasty. Taste is light honey and rum, giving it a sweet sugary touch. Also some grains (wheat) and fruits notes (orange) and a zest of vanilla note. Very sweet, drinkable, something different with the rum and honey presence.
