ekstedt (6354) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle (33 cl) at Brussels airport. Clear copper, medium beige head. Nutty malt aroma, a bit flat, with some alcohol notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dry with a light bitterness.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2008
Very attractive burgundy colour with a medium head. Underwhelmingly weak fruity malty aroma. The flavour is malty, with caramel and spiciness and alcohol. Sounds more interesting than it is though, just a little too weak in its flavour I found.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Aroma is spicry and fruity. pours light brown with a red hue, with a big head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Flavor is malty and dry with some spiciness, and raisins. easying drinking mouthfeel. More hops and complexity would be nice... but by no means a bad beer.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2008
Lovely fruity aromas, but the taste leaves to be disired, too malty and one- dimensional-but in no way bad. Tasty and chewy brew, but in no way complex.

armando629 (2455) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2008
Good and strong one. Delisicious appearance with a nice amber color and the creamy and foamy head. The aroma is complex,&spicy with fruits, honey and nuts. The flavour is sweet malt and spices with some banana. Nice aftertaste.

TrefwoordPunk (876) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a big creamy head and a sweet smell of ripe fruits (citrus and peach) and syrup. The flavor is like a heavily sweet triple, ripe fruits, mainly citrus, coriander and yeast. But there are some non-tripley, like toffee, biscuits and coffee with sugar and cream. The finish is bitter, like roasted grains. Good

kappldav123 (5816) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2008
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very creamy foam. Flavor is not so good, very much like medicine. The finish somehow chemical. Not so good.
