3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2004 A wonderful ale that pours a deep brown with a wonderful white creamy head. Flavors of a great belgian brew with decent bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden to copper color; creamy head. Poor aroma, some grass. Rich taste, well malty with a strong and almost fruity bitterness; strong final, somehow aromatic.
Very good taste, too bad for the aroma… Thanks Jacob (Lövenlund) for this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange-amber, flunky; huge, very-fine bubbled yellowish head. Very fruity & yeasty nose, meat-notes, ending in flowery hops. Dry-bitterish taste, hoppy flavour and some biscuit. Dry, spicey finish. Very dry, alcohol obvious, warming goes up. Hoparoma prolonged in the aftertaste. Strong amber ale, hoppy "à souhait", and most important, an impressive balance for an impressive ale.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden color with a white head. The taste is watery with fruits. Notes of apples and yeast. Not worth it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
hazy, apple cider painted orangish amber color with a nice, creamy head with sticking lace...pungent fresh-cut apple aroma with slices of mascarpone cheese, piles of drying leaves, and a faint hint of cleaning solvent...flavors of clean, tart blanched apple alongside an accumulation of fresh cut grass drizzle upon with diluted caramel, a squirt of lemon, and the essence of a belgian influenced yeast...whispers of orange peel and 5-alive, a touch of coriander, and growing creaminess float exquisitely over a natural tartness establishing a seriously refreshing disposition beyond words.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Frothy lush head over a body full of floaties, cloudiness. Smells spicy and full or coriander and mild citrus. The flavor isn't bad, but it's not quite up to BSA, in my opinion. There's something missing, but yet the flavor is definetly not thin. Banana esters and a little too bitter in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burnt orange pour with a dense head and tiny flecks of sediment - aroma of sugar-coated citrus fruits, slight tartness and yeast - creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation - tastes like orange marmalade on toast, perfect balance of sweet, bitter and tart - long, grainy finish - this is a highly under-rated tIj brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 (Bottled) Murky, dark orange with a small, but lasting and firm, lightly lacy head. Slightly tart, very fruity (banana) and sweetish, yeasty aroma with lots of cloves and some cardamom. Neutral, slightly sour, fruity/flowery and yeasty clove flavor with some toffee maltiness. Medium-bodied with very high, but soft carbonation. Alcohol is completely hidden. A pleasant mixture of sahti, lambic and hefeweizen. Very nice!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz capped bottle [Bottled Nov. 2002 - opened Feb. 2004]: Hazed dark copper, dense, heavy foam undelating like sand dunes. . . Spicy aroma with cloves, pepper, bitter honey and some campfire. Flavour was surprisingly smokey, with some marshmellow chewiness, bubblegum, sugary pankcake syrup, and some bitter dry fruits, and interesting and unqiue beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a burnt red orange color with a small head, but lots of lace and a very large amount of sediment. The aroma is yeasty and spicy. The flavor is quite spicy and dry, somewhat cheesy, somewhat hopped, with a thick body. Overall, this one is a bit strange due to the body and the appearance. Glad I tried it, but I will avoid it.
