Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass, obtained in a trade with Duffman. Thanks Tony! Pours clear honey-gold, 1-finger thick white head, very spotty lacing. Nose is pineapple, apple cider, light vinegar, some leather, very green apple-ish. Flavours are moderately spicy, nice spun sugar/honey note, that fades to more green apple and candy. Unremarkable.

chromeotaphor (170) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2017
Pittig spicy caramelig aroma. Prachtig felbruisend bier met forse kraag. Bier met een aanwezig palet dat spicy en pittig in de afdronk is. Fel van smaak met name in de afdronk, droog en pittig. Lekker biertje maar niet al te speciaal, voor de liefhebbers van een droge maar pittige afdronk.

lullasky (33) - Nice, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2017
Blonde très claire, tirant vers le champagne. Légère mousse persistante. Notes fruitées (banane ?) et florales. Peu d’amertume, longue en bouche.

ForlornHope (524) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle at home. Well past the Best Before date. Orange-amber in colour with a tight, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of marzipan, burnt toast and yeast. There is also a whiff of booze. Taste is slightly sweet to start with a bitter follow. Sappy malt, sweet and fruity with caramel and fruit notes, almost a plum jam taste. Light carbonation, smooth and mellow on the palate with the alcohol strength coming through at the end.

lkowalkowski (408) - POLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Barwa jasna, klarowne. Piana biała, drobna. W aromacie trochę jak białe wino. W smaku alkohol dobrze ukryty. Ogólnie w porządku.
