Niet zo sterke geur. Lekker fris, gelukkig maar want her is bloedheet bij de pubquiz. Donker koper, dun maar dekkend schuim.

KoNrRiI (468) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2014
0.75 bottle. Hazy, light brown color and a medium-sized, white head of good retention on top. Aroma is sweet with the typical Belgian yeasts in the forefront as well as some spices and plenty of candied sugar. Very sweet taste, sugary all the way with what one could call an amalgam of "christmassy" spices. Medium body, oily texture, and soft carbonation manifesting itself mostly during swallowing. Overall the beer is pretty tasty and drinkable but it could be less sweet while retaining the same flavor, as of now it feels rather saccharine.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2003
A slightly cloudy orange beer with a fine very foamy head, but it disappears quite fast. It has a quity strong very nice aroma of fruit, yeast and oranges with notes of alcohol. The flavor is smooth with a good sweetness containing orange and yeast notes and ending on a slight very nice bitterness.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Very chunky stuff. Looooots of floaties evenly suspended throughout the beer. Nose quite yeasty, bit tart, an odd spicy-mintiness as well. Nice flavor, very buttery and full, lots of yeasty chewiness. Slightly tart and fruity with orange and strawberries.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2008
Bouteille de 330 ml. La bière est de couleur blonde-orangée avec une mousse blanche qui couvre le liquide complètement du début jusqu’à la fin. Au nez on respire des arômes de pêches, de coriandre, de gingembre, de blé, d’épices et de bananes. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence moyenne-élevée. On goute des flaveurs de blé, de pêches, de bananes, d’épices et de levure.
