Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2009
0.33 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Hazy amber color. Sweet aroma with honey, toffee, orange marmelade and solvent. Sweet worty, toffeish and honeyish flavor with orange marmelade, chocolate and nuts. Too sweet with some disturbing solvent. jesperhammer (5017) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2010
04-DEC-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer".
Huge fluffy beige head on murky brown body.
Sweet nose with a hefty alcoholic bitterness.
Fine belgian strong ale type with brown sugar and spices.
Quite high carbonation. The alcohol is really not well integrated but overall a fine brew. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012

330ml bottle. Malty and spicy aromas. Pours bright dark gold, with nice white head, persistent. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is some sweet, malty, with spices and herbal flavours. Good long finish.
Really enjoyable, and a tasty twist for the style. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Dark amber orange pour. Aroma is spicy with sugary malts. Flavor is sweet, spicy and creamy. Eructoblaster (4453) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle - 330ml. Nice dark copper body with a decent beige foamy head. Its sharp hoppy aroma carries malty, fruity, and yeasty hints. Taste is well balanced and hides the alcohol pretty well. Fruity and yeasty notes are present. Ends with a fair bitter/sour finish. Enjoyable. GRM (4238) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010

@ ACBF ’11. Aroma is swampy malt.
Flavour is fruity swampy malt. Hmm, something not matching my palate here. beastiefan2k (4179) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Beautiful 330mL bottle in a mini-Duvel tulip glass. Pours a thick dark amber, cloudy and even cloudier when the bottom is poured. Nothing too special about this beer, a nice mix of Belgian yeast esthers, very very fruity due to that (maybe too high of a temp). Fruity esthers pretty much take over and there is not too much else to it. Medium body with an empty ending, medium-strong carbonation. I could drink it again but nothing grabs me.
