Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2008
It is a 33 cl. bottle, but it has only been filled with 25 cl. The color of the beer is golden and the head is small. The aroma has sweetness and notes of coriander, yeast, malt and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of yeast, coriander, malt, fruit and the finish is dry and spicy.

yespr (40181) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours slight cloudy orange with a slowly collapsing white head. Aroma is apple citric and plastic phenolic, somewhat unpleasant. Flavour holds a classic mix of caramel, light pilsner like malt and hops and a distinct fruity yeast accent. Light spiced and once again phenolic on the back of the nose.

Bottle. Orange-apricot malt aroma with a strong alcohol nose. Golden yellow with nice head - very effervescent. Sweet apricot/apple malt flavor. Bitter metallic finish. Was pretty good until the finish then it gets as rough as sandpaper toilet paper.

BelgianBeerGal (3794) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2009 33cL bottle from Malmedy Carrefour. Poured a cloudy, gold color; white, foamy head that quickly settled. Both the aroma and the flavor were dominated by fruit (grape/orange?). It was a different flavor but refreshing. I would recommend trying it.
