Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2009
50cl Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Murky brown colour with lots and lots of yeast, huge lasting fluffy and creamy head. The head kept growing and growing, also out of the bottle. Hmm...Very fruity and yeasty aroma, lots of ripe stonefruits, brown sugar and yeast, spicy, very Belgian. Flavour is sweet, stonefruits, peppery spices, a lot of sugar, but nicely balanced by a good hoppy bitter finish, along with some alcohol. Soft and creamy mouthfeel, medium to fullbodied. Higly enjoyable, very good beer!

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2009
Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Amber colour, mediumsized fluffy beige head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops along with some hints of spices and yeast. Flavour is toffee, some spices along with fruity and flowery hops. Alcohol gives a nice warming touch in the throat on its way down. Fruity hoppy finish and aftertaste. Comes quite close to some IPA:s with its strong fruity hoppyness.

A hazy dark red/brown colored beer, with a huge, thick foamy beige head. The aroma is spicey, some pepper, dark fruits and hops. The taste is very spicey, several dark fruits, like prunes and raisins. Some nuts and wood. The aftertaste is long bitter and warm.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2008

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Hazy bronze with a big yellowish head. Mostly fruity aroma, but also some yeastiness. Complex. Potent fruity flavours, but sweetness prevails. Quite sirupy texture. Noticeable alcohol. Fizzy. Good as always from Volendam.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
[Sampled in 2005, present from Den Bl l.] Bombing head and sediments like never before ...or after. Heavy notes of dried fruits, wood, raisins, sweet nuts, some chocolate, weak alcohol, very complex, 7 diff. malts, spices. Great. Must try more brew from this brewery.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
[I bought my bottle in 2003 and am drinking it the month it expires December 2005] It was very lively when opened. A deep red beer with a slight sediment hanging in the beer and with a thick long lasting brown head. The aroma is powerful with notes of wood, over ripe fruits, prunes, and raisins. The flavor is sweet and very nice with strong notes of over ripe fruit - especially peaches, but also prunes and raisins - almost like a Madeira, with the alcohol lying in the background. The end is very complex with notes of cloves, oranges, and nuts on a woody background. This goes right up there among my favorite Dutch beers.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2004
Upon opening the 75 cl bottle, the beer gushes out and wont stop. So beware and be quick with the pouring! Very cloudy brown color, huge off-white head. Aroma is roasted and chocolat malts, dried fruit such as prune and walnut, spices like nutmeg. Taste is very malty (they used 7 different malt ingredients), soft but alcoholic, quite complex. Full palate, slightly alcoholic. Very nice beer by a very nice brewery.
