Almost a red mud looking beer with a thin white head. Strangely sweet aroma that in no way reminds me of pears. It’s more of a caramel and brown sugar smell. Some honey is apparent in the flavor with notes of cherry and caramel. Slightly tangy and bitter finish. Intriguing. PorterPounder (8295) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Whole Foods, Sarasota, Fl. 11.2 oz bottle. Dark orange to to light brown, murky pour with a light and beady off-white head. Fruity, sweet aroma with some cherries and maple syrup. Flavor has some raspberries, prominent yeast notes and buttered baked brown bread. Thickish mouthfeel. Good night cap. damienv10 (108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2006
The ale is an opaque brown red orange. Very different. Light nose of maple syrup, floral notes and pear or apples. The flavor is a bit muted but pleasant. Mostly pear, not too sweet or too dry, and a little bit of violets. Crisp carbonation is done just right. Faint traces of hops in there but not much else. This would be a great offering were it a bit more pronounced and complex in flavor. macbar (30) - ITALY - MAR 24, 2006
It tastes fruity with a lightly sweet character and a long fruity and bitter aftertaste. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Brown/red. No head, just a little off white carbonation. Nose- licorice, dark fruits, sugar, yeast, pears, rich malt, roasty caramel, subtle alcohol. Same flavors. Roasted cotton candy aftertaste. Medium body, smooth. Very dark, rich brew for spring or summer. Nice brew.

Murky brown (with yeast) color with a small head. Very nice toffee-caramely aroma with some oak and rhum hints. Acidic, slightly sour cherry flavor with bitter, ashy grape seeds in the background. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with balanced carbonation. A quite typical brew in the Bink scale. Not bad, but won’t gives you few reasons to buy it again. Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Ruddy brown ale with some haze, not much lace. The nose is a mix of exotic fruit and a touch of wet dog.Simple sweetness at the start, turnig to dark caramel, then opening up into a wonderful dried pear and figgy malt combo, finishing with some pleasant evergreen hop bitterness. An aftertaste with a slightly roasted component builds after a few sips. Nicely balanced and unique. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2006
Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a big beige head. Sweet caramel, fruity aroma and taste. Medium body with a sweet finish. Ungstrup (38489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2006
A hazy dark amber beer with a thin light brown head. The aroma is complex with notes of alcohol, prunes, malt, fruit, and caramel. The flavor is sweet and with strong notes of over ripe fruit combined with a light dustyness, leading to a dry very fruity end. The sweetness is a bit cloying.

Bottle (330ml). Poured deep hazy reddish-brown with a good sized creamy -rocky beige lasting head; little puddle of black sediment at bottom of the bottle. Sweet and appealing aroma of yeasty, spicy, brown sugary malt, lightly fruity and alcoholic. Flavour is a little light, but it’s a syrupy, fruity, malty, spicy blend - long finish with bitter notes, but mostly malt, honey and fruit, more alcohol bitterness emerges on warming. Solid body, syrupy, a mostly still mouthfeel - very very nice - wish I could get this regularly. My wife loved it too.
