Cloudy mid-brown beer. Big frothy off white head. Soft palate turning frothy. Sweet malt. Toffee caramel. Undertone of sweet medicine and creamy red fruits. A little aniseed alcohol as well. This beer came out of left field and pleasantly surprised me!

erickok (3548) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 26, 2012
Not sure if this is a new recipe/rating. Dark orange, frothy full white head. Fermented fruit, sharp sweetness and a milky yeasty base. Interesting. Creamy base, lots of sugar. Not an easy drink. Underdeveloped. Full body, it’s okay. (On tap at Pint N-H Bierfestival)

Unclear murky medium amber - orange color with a large, fizzy, good - fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, citrus, lemon, moderate yeasty, barnyard, leather. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090404]

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2009
Bottle from Bierkoning. Exploding head, probably lost 50% of contents to the tablecloth. Murky brown body with serious head. Nose of malts. Taste of caramel, malts, sweet fruits. Very yeasty but also very nice. LIked it quite a bit, considering.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2009
Bottle, 9.5%. Violent gusher, just goes on. OK malty aroma. Disgusting-looking muddy brown colour, lots of yeast floating around. The head is big and quite stable with bits of yeast mixed in. Luckily, the flavour is a lot better than the appearance. Quite malty and slightly sweet, fruity with some sweet spices and a good amount of alcohol.
