dnstone (2165) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Hazey dirty gold in color with nice soft white head. A sweet aroma spiked with a Belgian yest tone. A clean stong golden ale with hinst of spice and banana, deceptively strong

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2010
Dark yellow colored with little white head, cloudy appearance. Sweet and citrusy aroma with some appricot and spices. Medium bodied, carbonated palate. Flavor is even more citrusy with some alcohol note, aftertaste dries a lot with yeast and still obvious alcohol. Rather one-dimensional.

FatPhil (9594) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 26, 2010
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
6 Massively winey aroma. Sweet and grapey, and a little sharp too.
4 Slightly hazy amber, tiny self-supporting tight head.
6 Again very winey, particularly in the retronasals, the alcohol wafts up quite assertively. Decent bready graininess, but drowned out by the bitter bite of the hops and the burn of the alcohol.
3 Biting palate, crisp carbonation. That finish, with both alcohol and noble hops, is absolutely tingling!
11 Possibly tried to be too much. It’s not unpleasant, but the alcohol is too prominant. No brewing flaws, though, just imbalanced by design - needs more heaviness to the body, more bread.

leaparsons (8311) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle. Golden with an off-white head. Aromas are crystallised pear sweets with brown sugar and stewed apple. Herbal with spices. Caramel with yeast. Flavours are sweet candy sugar and pear with alcohol and spices. Decent.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle, 9.5%. Vinous aroma, a little mild wax. Hazy copper colour. Small frothy white head, some floaties at the bottom. The flavour starts off rather sweet and fruity. Turns more fruity, with some peach and soft fruits, and with enough alcohol to balance. Does not really taste its 9.5%.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
jaspe007 (47) - Utrecht/Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. A hazy golden beer with a decent, white foamy head. Aroma is very fruity, with sweet fruits such as pear and a strong hint of peach. I like it. Unfortunately, the nice aroma makes the taste a bit of a disappointment, which is fruity and a little sweet but with some acidic/sour counter-taste that is dominant in the finish. Average carbonation, quite a full body, but something is missing, a stronger finish would have been nice. But the aroma... nice.

Countbeer (4725) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2010
White vast foamy head on top of a clear dark orange beer. Smell spices, yeast, sweets, fruit (banana), malts and hops. Taste is very fruity (orange, tangerine, strawberry), spices (light peppery), yeast, grass. Light bitter light sweet mid carbo. Interesting beer.

joergen (21497) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle at yespr. Hazy amber coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of caramel with notes of spices and marzipan. Sweet flavour of caramel, marzipan and spices with fruity notes. Sweet finish.
