(cask conditioned @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear golden color with a soapy white head. Aroma is confusing a bit. Spicy and slightly hoppy with a damp earth note at the end. Hard to place. Flavor is sweet at the start then very damp and has a slight bitterness at the end. Didn’t know this was as strong as it was. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Tap @ Blue Point Brewery. This was a puzzler, and even now, hours after trying it, I can’t quite render a verdict. The beer pours golden with a nice white head and barely noticeable lacing. The taste is smooth and dominated by spicy and bread notes with citrus and a slight hop characteristic thrown in. A very interesting brew, and a commendable experiment for Blue Point. A for effort, Incomplete (though good) for the beer. BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Light fruity aroma, golden orange color with white head. Well balenced carbintion. Not bad, i would drink this again. Had this at the waterfront ale house in Brooklyn Heights. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Draught at Pete’s (Waterfront) Ale House. Amber colored with a frothy head, leaving some spots of lacing. Aromas of biscuity malts, some (slightly rotting?) fruit and moderate floral and citrus hops. Slightly sweet light caramel malt flavor balanced somewhat by citrusy hops, though I kept sensing this twiggy/sappy/leafy thing underneath. Didn’t pick up on any "smoke" in the malts, but then again I wasn’t looking for it. Had a lot of trouble deciding if I was really into this or not. An "imperial blonde ale"? Overall worth trying if you can find it. Maverick34 (3299) - New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Draught. Orangey, not much hops or color, poured amberish. OK but not that sweet.

Plastic pint pour at the brewpub. Color is orange/gold and absolutely clear. Aroma is a meaty sweetness (not smoke), some sugary flowers with some sweet cereal. Taste is a thick lemon-like biscuit malt and something I like to call "a german sweetness that you know shouldn’t be there." Finishes malty lemon and thick on the palate yet a light-medium drinkable body. A very strange beer, billed as an Amsterdam-inspired brew, yet it definitely taste like a sweet German beer. So I give it points for originality. Definitely would like to drink again. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2007
I had this on tap and it was big. It seemed to have a much higher alchohol content and the heavy notes of hops sure did carry a long way. It had herbal notes and spme spices that I could not decipher. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Draft at Mr. Goodbar. Thanks to Rudolf for getting me the discount! Pours golden and does not have a very pronounced aroma. You really have to snort the beer to get anything. Flavor of honey, and SMOKED MALT! Weird. Some band aid and herbal hops in the finish, which was a little watery. This sounds worse that it was. When you need a lighter high ABV beer for summer drinking, this would be an alright candidate. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
On tap @ Mr.Goodbar.
Light malty aroma, golden, with a tiny white head. Huge malt flavour at first, very bitter hops, and then a lovely butterscotch meringue, with something akin to allspice. Full bodied, tongue tingling, very well balanced. A wonderful little surprise! mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Draught. Cloudy orange-gold with a small white head. The aroma is yeasty, bready, with notes of light oranges and cereal. Medium body - lots of caramel, bread, and dusty fruit flavour that isn’t too sweet. There is a nice richness to it with a certain softness. Tasty.
Sampled at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo on June 24, 2006.
