pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle: Gushing, cloudy with lots of floaties and an astonishing sediment, smaller, slowly collapsing off-white foamy layer; bread and exotic fruits in the nose, completed by not very well hidden traces of herbal (peppermint ?) hops; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied, creamy, soft MF; a tinge of warming alcohol (a bit brany-like) in the fruity-yeasty and bready finish. A powerful goody.......

jonas (6785) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2009
2007 bottle, vielen vielen dank Günther! Aromatic alcohols - apple, a bit bierbrand, wood spice. Cloudy yellow (I wasnt carefull enough I guess), fine white head. Apple, mango, green wood, calvados in the flavor. Medium to light body, mellow sparkly mouthfeel. Quick finish, which is a shame. Tropical retronasal. Very pleasant drink.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle, shared by plovmand. It’s hazy and orange-golden in the glass, with a nice dense beige head. Some floaties swirling around too. Spiced nose with some alcohol and beef-stock, fruityness and sweetness. Alcohol and spices are the first to be detected in the mouth, followed by lots of dried fruit and sweetness. Sticky and full-bodied with a good effervescent. Some alcohol warmth too, and in a strange way, it feels dry. A nice beer, actually really pleasant, but it would be pushing the limits to say it’s balanced. (080823)

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of plovmand. Hazy amber golden with floating impurities and a tall and rough head that unfortunately dissipates rather quickly. Spicy nose - some ginger? - and sweet fruits. Quite rich in the body with sweetish caramel, fruit and again spices. Somewhat astringently bitter finish. 230808
