Dedollewaitor (13925) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2006
Yellow golden orange with white head. Fruits from citrus/orange family. The beer has a good balance between sweet and sourness. The finish is very pleasant- a bit bitter but then again very fresh! Very enjoyable!

harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2005
Bottle. I thought that this was a tad bland. Nothing wrong with it, just not enough to set it apart from other similar beers

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2010
Bottle, 33cl. A mostly clear, golden beer topped by a fine, off-white head. Some very small floaties. Yeasty, fruity nose with pale malts and a good spiced touch. Some cellar and a nice hoppyness too. Wheaty, spiced and sugary-sweet flavor. Some cellar, and a really good hoppyness too. Not overly bitter. Good bitterness in the finish, but also a warming touch from the alcohol, some spiced notes I guess is from the yeast, and lots of sugary sweetness. Full-bodied and effervescent. Overall, a really nice beer that would benefit from less sugar. 100423

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 Draught at ZBF08. Weak bready aroma. Very cloudy yellow colour. Small but nice and stable creamy white head. Mild flavour, some yeast. Medium bitterness, quite rough. 6 3 6 3 13

Bottle, 8.5%. Sweet and yeasty fruit aroma. Hazy golden colour. Big stable creamy white head. The flavour is sweet with a little yeast. Good spicy flavour. Grassy hop flavour, a little grapefruit. Slightly high level of alcohol, but OK balanced by sweetness and hops. 6 3 7 3 16

Theis (13437) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2009

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 2 years old - Cloudy tan with swirlig carbonation and a thick, foamy head. Aroma shows pears, lots of yeast, leather, white pepper, coriander, bread crust, herbal hops; palate has sweet notes of caramel flan, pepper, dried peaches, barnyard with cobwebs. Finish is dry (pepper, alcohol), with a slight acidity. Vintage Rating: 9 5 8 5 16 = 4.3 (I thought it had improved hugely until I looked at my old rating notes and realized this beer started pretty good).

Rating when fresh: Very well-balanced abbey ale. Tan colour (is this a tripel or a dubbel); good yeast bite, but not overwhelming like Saison Dupont; sweet malt flavours develop well, and the finish is notably spicy (cinammon, pepper, maybe even cardamom).

TBone (12566) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2005
Bottled (BB 07/2007)
Hazy golden, huge white creamy head, lace. Strange aroma of yeast, grassy hops and boiled vegetables. Good crisp hoppy, lemony blonde flavor but also some vegetables. I wonder if this is characteristic to this brew. Dissapointing, but gets better when all yeast is poured.

Travlr (11976) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Straw colored and hazy. Nose of yeast and citrus. Full bodied. Flavor of malt, hay, and citrus. Very subtle and very very drinkable.

bu11zeye (11952) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a thick beige head. Aroma of yeast, banana, and butterscotch. Flavors of citrus and yeast. Good brew for those hot summer afternoons.

argo0 (11555) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Cloudy golden with floaties and large off-white head. Aroma is orange peel, floral and yeasty. Taste is medium sweet, fruity (orange peel), floral, yeasty. Medium-full body.
