altonbrownd (3735) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle at home. Fruity scent. Little head. Orange, sweet and strong alcohol flavour. Sugary, caramel flavour. Better than the banana one but still very suspect. Not my thing.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
Sweet and spicy scent, very different.. orange and hazy (floating particles) in colour with white head. Tastes of HP sauce..?? Fruity and sweet. Very odd. Pleasant though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Pale gold with a huge frothy head. Lots of yeast floating in it which means the aroma is yeasty and leathery. I quite liked the taste; it was much better than the Mongozo banana. It’s basically beer ’n’ tonic: sour at first with a pleasant, unusual, non-hoppy dryness. It’s not bad.

Sammy (8524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
At Smokeless Joe’s. Grainy though it is a plant. Good yeast and a plant beer, farmhouse aroma, abundant yeast and a unique Belgium. Smooth though drying finish

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2006
Aroma of wheat and malt, opaque yellow, tiny white head. Soft malt flavour, slightly wheat as well, not a trace of spice. Light bodied, sweet. Ordinary.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Cloudy orange beer with a white head. Malty and grainy sweet aroma with a faint yeasty note. Weid harsh earthy aroma, I guess thats where the roots come in... strange beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
a sim rate: (bottled from Ramsgate Brewery) Smells just like tamales! Very corn aroma. Very sweet and overly tart. Very metallic in the first taste. Nothing special about it.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2005
A hazy light orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and slightly spicy, while the flavor also haas notes of yeast and fruit, leading to a dry end. Very Belgian in style, despite that the bottle states it is inspired by south american brewing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle: Clear gold with a large, lasting white head. Aroma is lightly malty and grainy, with a big spicy hit at the finish. Flavour is well, crap. Quite dry, with a strange vegetable like start and a metallic finish. Thin in body and crap.
