JanEric (1126) - Meppel, - NOV 4, 2012
From a package of the Lidl. Amber, minimal head., flat beer. Aroma is sweet, some fizzling in the mouth, with minimal citrus, some artificial aroma even. Sweetish taste, alcoholic, medium body, reasonable finish. Not so good at all.

Zymurgeist2 (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle to tulip glass. Fresh perfume and floral hops in moderate. Slightly dirty amber with a full oatmeal colored head. Taste is moderately floral hops and moderate strong alcohol warmth. Taste is slightly infected with a non-intentional funk at the back half. Semi-sweetness lingers.

Smell of fruit, yeast. Muddy amber colour, high white head. Aroma of hops, alcohol, syrup, some honey. Very sweet. Flat carbon, oily texture.

Shlemophone (28) - RUSSIA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours slightly hazy copper color with off white head. Fruity and yeasty aromas with a hint of booze. Fruit and grass flavors with doughy yeast, sweet malt, and some booze. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

oh6gdx (22531) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Bottled (from Alko Kivihaka, Vaasa). Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, nice floral and somewhat sweetish wooden hops to it with mild alcohol. Flavour is quite similar in a nice balance. Actually I recalled the Piraat as a somewhat gluelike BSA, but atleast with the hopping in this one, the glueish alcohol was taken down quite nicely. (apparently the boozy-remembering thing went towards the 9% version...)

kapusil (777) - HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2015
0.33l bottle. Slightly hazy amber body, huge white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, peach, cherries and some pepper. Taste of bread, caramel, grassy hops, orange peel and pepper. Quite sweet, but hoppy and boozy at the same time. Very nice.

majkelr (209) - Lębork, POLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Aromat słodowy, słodki, lekko chmielowy. W smaku słodkie skontrowane kwaskowatością. Rozgrzewające, alkohol dość dobrze się ukrył po trzech miesiącach od zakupu świeżego.

martin00sr (1586) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2015
Hazy amber, lacing white froth. Fruity, malty and yeasty aroma. Sweet, malty flavour with alcoholic and phenolic notes.

Iznogud (1545) - CROATIA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Pours hazy dark yellow, white head. Sweet, yeasty, not really hoppy. Bit spicy and fruity.

monk191 (1277) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
A quite nice, fruity beer. Pours a nice bright orange with not much head. Smells fruity, peach and banana and clove. Taste is more fruity then hoppy, with apple cider, with some grapes and champagne in the finish. Pairs best with huntsman double Gloucester and blue Stilton cheese and prosciutto. Had in the bottle.

kamillozo (61) - POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Butelka. Barwa złota w kierunku herbacianej, opalizująca. Po nalaniu bardzo obfita czapa piany o delikatnym zabarwieniu ecru oraz drobnych i średnich oczkach. Od razu widać że piwo jest mocno nagazowane, co widać po intensywnie uwalniających się bąbelkach. Fantastycznie - zasługuje na najwyższą ocenę za wygląd. Aromat jest słodki, estrowy. Dominują żółte owoce, jest też nuta ziołowa i oczywiście alkoholowa. Przy pierwszym łyku wysokie nagazowanie daje o sobie nieźle znać wypełniając całą paszczę. Tak jak i w aromacie tak i tu jest jeszcze bardziej słodko i owocowo. Zdecydowanie czuć alkohol ale ma on przyjemny, winny / szampański charakter i daje uczucie rozgrzewania w przełyku. Jest też lekka pikantna przyprawowość. Finisz raczej wytrawny, zakończony raczej niską i alkoholową (ale nadal winną) goryczką. Ciekawe piwo.
