DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Use by date says december 05, so a bit old. Aroma is outstanding, fruity malt. Taste is similar, and light but in a great way that means its very drinkable.

henrik (41) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2006
Nice ruby colour. Nice aroma of hops and yeast -- and hay! Foamy sharp mouthfeel - a bit unpleasant. The alcohol is clearly present despite the only 7%. Bought this summer in Dranken Geers in Gent. Maybe it’s not retired after all?

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2005
Dark, dark brown with a bit of a head initially, but it disappears to nothing pretty briskly. A fairly musky aroma, with licorice and raisin notes. Sweet flavour that I found to be a bit cloying. A fizzy and surprisingly thin palate. An interesting beer, but it falls short.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2005
250 ml bottle, via BelgianShop. Pours a dark mahogany with a firm light brown head. Lightly sour with some woodiness, dark fruits, and rather vinous smelling. Taste is very vinous as well, lots of dark fruits. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good beer overall.
