zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2013
Bottles from Coppers, Newcastle. This cloudy red-brown beer explodes out of the bottle with a large foamy head. There are sour red fruity notes with spice and earthy and notes, dry lemon and a creamy finish.

EddyBeer1 (876) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Ambrée voilée, effervescence faible de visu mais moyennement gazeuse au palais, très peu de mousse. Caramel tout en douceur, belles notes de pommes, un peu bubblegum, alcool assez présent, l’amertume, elle, arrive en catimini sur la fin.

Breakfast toast brown. Sweet burnt caramel and vanilla malt in the nose. Sweet, with sour/bitter hints at the edges. A tasty golden.

Bottle at Beergeek. Copper color, cloudy a little. Smells like apple juice. Taste with bit malt sweetness, dark fruit, some spiceness, with sweet and alcoholic aftertaste.

rosenbergh (6811) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2013
330 ml bottle. Lot 49/29/10. BB Jan 2016. From bierkompass.de.
Dark brown colour with a small greyish white head. Caramel sweetness, malt and mild alcohol in the aroma. No real difference to X so far... The flavour is dark fruits, malt, caramel sweetness, yeasty bitterness and alcohol. Maybe a tad better than the X. A bit more balanced too.

caesar (5119) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2013
Bottled, BB Jan 2016, large sample. Clear amber color, short off-white head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast, green apple, hint of orange, some white wine. Quite dry taste, bit alcoholic, some sweetness, green apple again. Bit one-dimensional and too heavy on the alcohol or high alcohols. The weird sense of mashed apples with sugar (appelmoes) is also not something I would expect in a beer. I’m not a fan of this one.

RexTalionis (2429) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy brown in color with a tan head. Bit of mashed apples in aroma, some light vinegar and hints of funk in aroma. Sweet toffee and sour sweet bready notes in taste. Sweet ripe garden fruityness in aftertaste.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle from the Struise shop in Brugge. Very fruity smell, with dried fruits. A bit boozy, but not to bad. Similar taste, quite sweet. Full body. Nice beer to lean back and sip at.

jaghana (3892) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper-amber beer with huge head, got gushing. Nose is on caramel and caramalt with a sourish presence. Aroma is on the same but quite sweet, cherry touch, lot of caramel, anise, cinnamom. Near to a flemish red as the label suggests but less complex and quite sweet, lot of yeast notes.

radagast83 (4641) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a slightly hazy light amber color with a small white head. Aroma was dried fruits, some citrus notes. Flavor was light fruit notes, citrus. Alcohol pretty well hidden here.
