Ver surprised by the 8%, it does not taste strong. A fruity banana aroma at first then becomes very sweet. Nice head when poured from bottle that lasts for a few sips. By the end of the glass sweetness was taking over.

Lele (106) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Stupenda birra, dalla storia da conoscere (soprattutto quella del suo caratteristico bicchiere). Fortemente maltata e un po’ speziata. Corpo strutturato

Mcbertola (103) - BRAZIL - APR 21, 2014
Cerveja de coloração avermelhada. Espuma cor de creme e densa. Aroma frutado, várias frutas, pêssegos, uva e licor. Sabor frutado, com notas de frutas passas, damasco, caramelos. O aroma e o melhor que tem nessa cerveja, apesar do sabor bem marcante. Excelente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 330 ml into a Belgium Boot glass(came with the 4 pack) The head was a full hand and forever lasting. It took me a bit to get the whole bottle pored into the glass. Anyway It’s a pretty orange/red beer with a nice cream head.(and I’m a dark beer drinker). Aroma was Fruit with a lot of malt. Mouth feel way good Carbonation and dry(no watery feel) Flavor was Fruity, malty tangy. very sweet.

Mainuh_man (102) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Pours a clear brown with a big white head. Aroma: Nice bready malt. Sweet malt begin, middle is mild and warm alcohol with some hints of cantaloupe. Balances off with nice, mild hop bitter that numbs the tongue a bit. Medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation. Overall, a really nice, sweeter amber.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Pours deep copper with a tan head. Nose is spicy with hints of caramel. Taste is malty, with caramel up front. Not bad, but not the smoothest beer I’ve had.
