marcus (9030) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a floral aroma. There is a nice caramel malt flavor - not too sweet - with sme very tasty hop bitterness at the finish.

Jerre (3178) - Waregem, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle, 33 cl. (Found this @ beerstore Pede, St. Livens Houtem) Golden color, with good white head. Aroma sweet malts, fruits touch. Medium body. Taste sweet start, the alcohol is well hidden, good bitterness, a well balanced beer. Very drinkable for everyone.

SHIG (4525) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color at first but soon after it started to react and murky up to a light orange brown, with a huge froathy white head. The aroma is citrus and with a sour nose. The taste is a big tart with citrus and metallic malt. I must add that this beer opens up and has a corny taste to it as it warms up.

fonefan (43888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle. Light unclear medium orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, cowshed, light acidic. (Aroma is a bit like a thin or light geueze). Flavor is moderate sweet and light acidic with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (151007)

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2007
(Bottled) Clear golden-amber with a huge, foamy and lacy head, forming a Duvelish cloud in the middle. Sourish-tart aroma of sweetish malt and some dark fruit. Slightly tart, dried-fruity flavor with some alcohol and caramely-sweetish malt. Medium-bodied, a bit foamy and acidic, sweet-sourish palate. The label is either beautifully retro or truly cheap, the head awesome, and the tartness surprising (and pleasant). Overall it doesn’t quite reach the Belgian beer elite, but definitely is a positive surprise.

madsberg (11360) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2006
Bottled. Orange coloured. Unclear. Light brownish small head. Yeast, sweetness, fruits and light spice in the aroma. Flavour of ripe fruits, light grape and yeast. Is quite acidic. Dry mouthfeel. Meidium bodied. Grapish spices end.

Ungstrup (34273) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of citrus and spices - especially cloves, leading to a dry and very spicy end.
