duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. Too much raw alcohol in this one for me to enjoy it in any way. Lots of citric, yeasty, Belgian style qualities and then the peppery, raw alcohol in the finish.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Quinns. Sweet malty aroma. Great looks; cloudy golden with a good head and lots of lace. Malted biscuit flavour with some very obvious alcohol and hints of spice and ginger. Nice thick palate with a slight sting from the carb. The hops put in an appearance for the finish but it leaves you with very definite lime and grapefruit. The only real let down is the metalic note in the flavour.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2006
Super carbonated hazy dull yellow with a big loose head. Sweet, floral, light caramel aroma with a bit of marshmallow. Somewhat oxidized. Light and spritzy, a little bitter. Mild flavors of malt and hops. Not particularly distinct.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale, hazy, golden beer with a decently sized, creamy head. Sweetish malt in the beginning but then you get to feel the hops - and this is one hoppy beer. Some yeasty, earthy notes. Decent ale if not exactly spectacular. 040399

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Asparagus aroma, reminding me of super strength lager. Golden colour, white big-bubbled head. Sweet, peppery flavour.

Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
Golden with small white head. Sweet aroma with hints of alcohol and yeast, Soft big taste which builds up to a warm and bit spicy aftertaste

Ungstrup (30977) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also hints of yeast. The flavor is also sweet with notes of caramel, but in the flavor the yeast is clearly noticable.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005

skortila (4867) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2004
Aroma reminds me of a Saison. The main difference is the noticeable alcohol. Aroma is spicy, yeasty and fruity (apple). Cloudy, yellow coloured with a short, lasting, white head. Taste is yeasty, malty, fruity, bitter and sweet. Sticky and alcoholic. IMO this beer could be better with less alcohol.
