Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 24, 2003
[corked bottle]. Cloudy amber colour, nice white head. Orange peels and vanilla in the aroma. The flavour is delicate, really balanced with a good sweetness (vanilla and chocolate), fruity traces (apricots, orange and plums) and the finish is spicy. Nice, but a little bit weak for this style.

A pretty boring beer. A fruity bitterness but not much else. Not well rounded. Yellow in color with a lasting white head

Countbeer (4303) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2012
Draught: Had this one many years ago and found some old notes that I updated and spiced up a bit. Off white head with a light hazy orange colored beer. Smell fruit, malts, and something forest a like. Taste is fruity with yeasty notes, some hops and a fine sweet bitterness. I liked this.

Muddy brown pour in glass. Nose and taste is rich molasses, sweet caramels, doughs and brown sugar. Rated 3/5/03

dcschiller (2203) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2010
(11.2 oz bottle). Caramel colored liquid with small white head. Hazy. Aroma of wet hair. Bitterness with a nice caramel taste and some sourness is present. Tastes better than it smells! I don’t think it hides the alcohol well. It’s an ok beer to me, but its leaves me wanting more.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Aroma has hints of burnt toffee, cloves, and candy sugar. Flavor is similar, although mainly an emphasis on the sweet toffee/caramel notes. Nothing to much to talk about.

MennoO (148) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
bottle (bb 06/07/2006) thanks Jerohen, rating represents vintage. Amber almost brown cloudy bear, with small white head. Tastes sweet. Flavour is complex, though mainly caramel. Not a long finish, which is a shame. In general, a very good brew, but a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Borresteijn (4545) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer, big foamy head. Fruity aroma, carbonation. Flavour is amber-like, sweet malts, fruity, caramel. Too much carbonation and not my cup of beer.

33cl, retired beer, last tasted two years ago, from Geers Oostakker, complex, yet easy to drink, hazy, rocky head, good brew

kepano (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Thick and creamy, beautiful waves of foam seem almost iridescent atop this marmalade orange body. Despite the crowding sediment this is another gorgeous brew from Urthel, highlighted by superb lacing. The nose is attractive and unique as I have come to expect from Hildegard’s craft. The delightful smell of fromage blanc lends a smooth, fresh character accompanied by a slight lactic sourness. Scents of honey and butter add to that rich and sweet sensation, while the subtle notes of coriander, clove and banana lend additional complexity. The mouthfeel is more textural than flavorful, fluffy as whipped cream. Sadly a certain blandness takes over. Strawberry, caramel, plum and toast are apparent but don’t seem decisive enough. The experience is not completely amiss as this brew retains quite a rich body, a buttery yeasty quality that remains very drinkable. Finishing sweet with a hint of coffee, this a decent beer with enough unique accents to make it worth seeking out.
