Beautiful, hazy amber color; generous head. Light aroma of caramel and grains. Medium body strength, the flavor is based on some sweet caramel and malt, with some good influences from the yeast; the bitterness is correct; but it’s a quite plain one, not exciting. goozen (4083) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2007

A Mes rate:
Bottle from the Belgian Belly. Erm... pretty poor effort. Sweet and lifeless, nothing to shout about by any means. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from uto. Amber with spotty white head. Ornate lace. Nose of oranges and hops. Taste is of spicy cider apples, oranges and caramel. Finish is slightly metallic, but overall of sweet fruits. Creamy, medium body. Very drinkable. A nice moderate brew. MoritzF (9974) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle, with thanks to bierkoning!) Almost clear, amber to copper colour with mid-sized, slowly lacing tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet, slightly dusty toast-malty aroma with caramel, subtle fruity (berries, dates) and noticeable alcoholic notes. Sweet flavour, medium body, smooth carbonation. Toast-malty taste with caramel and a subtle fruitiness; sweet, slightly spicy and bitter finish with a bit of alcohol coming through. Decent brew.

(Bottled) Hazy reddish amber with a medium, frothy-lacy head. Sweet-sour, berryish aroma with some yeast, flowery hops, and hints of metal. Spicy, very malty, berryish and slightly tart flavor with a sweetish finish, and hints of alcohol. Medium-bodied palate with smooth, but a bit fizzy carbonation. A quite nice, malty and balanced ale.

Bottle: Poured a hazy amber with foamy cream head. The aroma was a spicy fruit. The taste was sweet spice malt flavor that finished tangy. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2007
33 cl bottle. (This version says 6.5%) Yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with a nice fine white head. Light yeasty aroma with notes of fruit and some spices.

Bottle. High white fluffy but lasting head. Hazy light orange body. Light and sweet honey peach aroma with notes of soap. Thin honey flavor with no bitternes. Watery and thin mouthfeel. Sorry highraters I find it boring.
