bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Ceramic bottle. BB 08/06/11. Aroma of malt and candy sugar with a bit of stone fruit. Slightly hazy golden color with a firm, lasting head. Thin to medium bodied. Starts with sweet fruit, yeast spice, and a touch of warmth. The finish is a touch of clove, lingering sweetness, and a touch of bitter. Quite nice.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2015
500ml ceramic bottle (Beer Express, Tallinn)
Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a huge frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy yeasty citrus aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a drinkable soft beer.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(16oz ceramic bottle) Completely flat from the bottle, once again the seal of bottle cap to ceramic was inadequate from St. Sebastiaan. Particulate-hazy amber body. Aroma is very sweet, honey, flowery, peach. Taste is moderately sweet, maple, some herb, cookie dough, flowery, alcohol, light cantalope, grape. Watery, flat, medium-full body. I would be willing to re-rate with an intact bottle, but this rating will be factored in -- a bottling defect like this is on the head of the brewer.

HenrikSoegaard (13147) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
Ceramic bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Some fruity notes. Moderate bitter flavor with nice fruity esters present. Oily palate.

Ferris (12729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Apple, yeast, orange, grains and bread. Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, apple, grains and light orange. I get a very mild bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness overpowers. The thick mouth feel makes this a slow going beer. I think this would pair well with a desert or fruit, much in the way of an Ice Wine. As this warms, it is starting to taste more like a light quad. Fruits stand out more, and although apple still prevails it is still pretty good.

bu11zeye (12717) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pear, florals, and cereal. Flavor of coriander, honey, yeast, and sweet malt.

bierkoning (12387) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2002
Frothy, off-white head, diminishing fast. Sweetish flavor ith a hint of sourness. Hops, citrus and a bit of cinnamon in aroma and flavor. Thin beer, and the alcohol content is hardly noticable. The beer would be much better if it had more body.

thewolf (12080) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Poetzh, Flensborg.
Pours clear, pale golden. Lot of small bubbles surching towards a big, frothy white head. Good duration. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, coriander, oranges, biscuits and apples. Quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a little underwhelming, but still nice. Quite sweet, with biscuity malts dominating between some exotic fruits - pineappel, apples and oranges. A slightly dry finish.
