Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Warm amber with a nice and lasting head. The flavour is very complex with notes of malts, hops and fruit. The bitterness is moderate, but it grows and develops further in the finish.

pivnizub (10136) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle: Light amber coloured, visible carbonation, stable small creamy layer; sweetish fruity-malty nose with a nutty tinge and a faint touch of spicy hops; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering sweetish-bitter finish. Not bad, but a bit too sweet..........

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2004
Clear amber with a small head of foam. Aromas are sweet spicy hops. Flavours are caramel and toffee with a decent level of hopping. Lacks body and real bitterness. Shame.

Fin (9581) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle at Zuideterras, Antwerp, Belgium. I had this and Loz had Rodenbach unfortunately I hadnít had an awful lot of this before Loz decided that her beer wasnít for her and nicked my one. Poured a light brown colour with a decent head fruit, hops and malts dominate the aroma, taste is a little more of the same with some bitter sweetness thrown in for good measure.
