DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2007
8.5% bottle. Pale, spritzy, silkily headed. Aromas of dried apricot, hop grassiness and too much booze. Some biscuity malt and hop dryness detectable, but too aggressively alcoholic. Poor man’s DT.

Deep cloudt yellow with a lot of carboantion visibile but no sign of sediment. Big, sudsy pure white head with fair retention and lacing. Spicy sour citrus aroma with a crisp edge. Flavour matches the aroma with the alcohol adding some nice warmth. Sour finish. Very good but not great.

BelgianBeerGal (3133) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2007
33cL bottle from Woesten. A nice beer with a sweet flavor and hint of alcohol. What really disappointed me was the larger bits of yeast that clumped together in some bottles.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
Waited long time to sample thisone. Now, done it, I found it pleasent with good notes of spices, hoppiness, fullbodyness, hazy orange look, sweet alcohol and maybe not so great as expected!

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2007
This one had tons of floating yeast lumps in it, which made it kinda unplesant to drink, and i ended up pooring the last 10cl or so. Fruity and spicey nose of coriander, oranges and other esters. Flavor was, in spite of the yeast lumps, quite decent, mainly sweet creamy notes

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle. Large bubbly off-white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Somewhat cloudy orange yellow color. Aroma of spice, coriander, underlying fruit and caramel. Hint of orange peel. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet with notes of bitter and acidic. Sweet and spicy like finish.
