I had this in the traditional glass, an excellent beer with a velvet like mouthfeel and sweetish malty fruit notes. Very enjoyable.

Mörkröd med ordentlig skumkrona. Omedelbar sötma, med lång karamell och malt. Styrkan märks inte alls. Någon tomhet i sena eftersmaken.

Rien de plus à dire que les autres commentaires. Excellente ambrée, avec un verre hors norme!

Belle couleur ambrée. On goûte l’alcool et le malt. amertume légère. Bière classique sans originalité mais qui passe bien.

The first thing that stands out is the unique glass in wich it is served. It is amber colored with a lasting off-white head. medium carbonation. Fruit and malts in the taste with a slightly sweet aftertaste a great beer to drink on an entire night.

Pours amber to copper with fantastic fluffy and creamy head that slowly settles with excellent inviting lacing. Fruity bread with raisins and spicy hops in aroma. Sweet raisins also in flavor with a spicy bitter finish. Body could be somewhat thicker though, but still a fantastic beer.

33 cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a cloudy deep amber liquid with beige high head; it looks delicious. Few lacing. The aroma is lighter than you’d expect; still, its complexity is awesome. The sweetness is obvious, with fruit and spices. You can smell bananas, pineapple and some orange. Some distant booze that doesn’t spoil it. It tastes very much like it smells, with the freshness of hops and a high sweetness coming from the roasted malts. Full bodied and with lower than average carbonation (the perfect amount for this beer), it has a sweet aftertaste, being low in bitterness. A very original brew; unique. Definitely, not a session beer because of its sweetness, but worth drinking from time to time. Nice presentation (bottle and crown cap) and amusing drinking glass.

thehurt01 (262) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. The beer poured a nice amber body with a small tan head. The smell is a good blend of citrus and roasted malt, a hint of brown sugar. Taste is just like the smell with good carbonation.

Teran (262) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 7, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Tulip glass, in Belgrade. Pine on nose. Short beige head, rich citrus, cherry also strong, light caramel. Nice red-brown amber color. Translucent and bright, best powerful carbonating. Classic beer luxury for everyday use and never start to be boring.

Hardly no bubbles. Yellow/red dark copper color. No head. Lots of aroma. Yeast. Fruity, banana. Medium body. Taste is sweet.
