Bottled. Amber color. Very heavy carbonation. Musty, malty, tart and alcoholic aroma. The taste is sweet and begins with sharp alcohol and acetone continuing with pepper and cherry spirit. I used to like this but now it tastes like a solvent?!? SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 19, 2006

Bottle with flip top. Pours amber\gold with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, belgian spices, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is yeast, citrus, musty yeast, alcohol, and a slight bitter finish. Good body, just wasn’t digging this one. Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle, Lowlander, Covent Garden: With my London guide, Duff. Hazy amber with an eternal white head. The aroma of this reminded me of fresh prawns (??) with caramel. In the mouth it was sweet and slightly phenolic (cloves and pepper), and very nicely soft, like milk. Nice. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy amber colour, looks quite nice. Nice soft carbontion on the tongue, with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Caramel sweetness to start off, with some spicy, yeasty flavours, and some peppery alcohol, also quite citric aswell. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Cloudy golden copper body with a large off-white head. Aroma is rather perfumed with a little “romantic” flowers smell. Taste is not lacklustre. Pancakes-like malt-base foundation, quite a bit of bubble gum, a lot of spices/herbs, some tobacco, rose water, and more. It does taste a lot of things but the end-result doesn’t add-up to much. Some caramel as it warms-up helps it a bit. Fluffy body. One of the cutest little bottle out there. Maybe I was dumbfounded by the beautiful exterior but at first I thought it was great (cute women do that to me too). Now a year later I just think it is rather boring (again the cute women parallel). Either it is very unstable or my taste has changed a lot this part year.

Bottled (BB 08/2008)
Hazy amber color, big off-white head. Fruity plum jam and yeast nose with woody hops. Medium-bodied. Bitter, crisp carbonation. Very sweet fruity (candi sugar, more plum jam) for the style, warming alcohol in the finish. Drains to woody aftertaste. Year or so in the cellar would do wonders. Now just "ok" dessert drink.
