ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Slightly fruity, almost pineapple aroma. Taste is quite sweet with very little bitterness to balance. Sticky and sweet mouthfeel with a starchy backtaste. A little more fruit. Not unpleasant, but I wouldnt cross the road for another.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is rather buttery, with some fruityness showing up in the back. The flavor is quite citrusy, with some caramel and a buttery touch. Sourish. Cider-ish, but not in a good way. Full body, smooth carbonation. Sweetish. Citrusy, toffee finish with some cider notes. Rather poor this one. 151212

Maakun (2345) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle. Crystal clear golden with white head and some big bubbles. Lots of sweet grains, cardboard, honey, light yeast and spicy cakes. Sour apricots and red apple. Medium sweet, very light sour and bitter. Medium bodied with slick feel and fizzy carbonation. The fruityness is nice but otherwise not good at all.

tricksta_p (2677) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of fruits, malt, hint of yeast, sugar, apples. Flavour is medium sweet, a bit sticky and cloying. Some alcohol. Body is medium. Poor approximation of a Belgian pale strong ale, has a nasty industrial aspect to it. Not good.

visionthing (4068) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours clear golden with a white head. Fruity and acidic with somewhat vinous or at least cider like notes. Medium sweet and quite fruity with fermented apples, some acidity and a light bitterness. Somewhat refreshing, but not quite my style.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order( bu). Clear golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; fruity, some honey- also also som vinouse aromas. Medium body & complexity. Some sweetness, light sourness- balances ok. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
