Ungstrup (29171) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2010
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is powerful with notes of spices - coriander and more, malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices - coriander, as well as medium notes of straw, caramel, and malt, leading to a dry finish.

ScoWRee (375) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Pours a merky golden color with a huge white foamy head. Aroma of banana and yeast. Taste is crisp, fruity and lightly carbonated. Alcohol is well balanced. A nice BSA.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 Crescent Moon Extreme Beer Festival. Pours pale yellow and looks like a budweiser. Cotton candy aroma. Big unbalanced heat. This beer is just too hot. Has a harsh fizzy palate. The finish is softer though, and has a nice redeeming salvation of gooseberries.

jnelson_22 (118) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Clear pale gold with lively carbonation and a huge head. The nose is light fruits (sour apple) flowery hops, and a light, musty, sour character like dirty gym socks... The taste leads with light malt, light fruits, flowery hops, light alcohol, light sourness; light, crisp and sweet. Refreshing, but not overly flavorful...

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2010
Draught into a chalice. Pours darkish golden, with decent and durable white head. Aroma of spices, fruit and hops, but rather bland on the palate, and not particularly memorable as a result.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Aroma has a slight hint of citrus and pears. Color is a nice blonde amber with good head retention. Light bodied mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the presence of alcohol with a bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is not hidden enough. The fruityness comes late and is very subtle (grapefruit). This beer is drinkable but I doubt I would buy or drink again.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Clean grain and yeasty aroma. Quite significant carbonation and head retention, appears almost exactly like the other "devilish" Belgian but a wee bit darker. Flavor is quite pleasant, if uninspiring. Solid.
