DanielBrown (4425) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle (maybe) at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Smells like a Dubbel. Light toasty brown, with a small fluffy head. Very sweet - ginger biscuits, brown sugar etc. No balance really, just smooth and easy to drink. OK.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle. Quite flat and sweet. Touches of soy, and then some apple and berry fruit. The mouthfeel felt quite flat and empty.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2005
Dark amber, quite decent white head. Aroma from dark fruits and malts with small hints of almond. Sweet-ish flavour with a little spicyness. Malts here too. Slight acidic finish.

omhper (24333) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
Bottled. Clear dark amber. Buttery malt aroma. Sweet with soft, rich, delicate malt character but also a wealth of carbonization. Grassy and lightly roasty. Overcarbonated, but what a fantastic malt flavour!

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2004
And the next Flemish Sour doubter. Reddish orange colour, with hints of orange and yeast in the aroma. Flavour is spicy, with citric hops, but there’s no great depth. Bone dry and quite fresh tasting. There’s a very subtle tart edge to the finish, but it could hardly be called sour. Bottled at the Beer Circus, Croydon.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 Bottled. A fresh, fizzy, funky aroma with some sugary fruit to this hazy brown coloured beer. The taste is creamy with strawberry notes and some candy sugar. Nicely drinkable at a sensible strength.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2004
Light spicy sugar aroma. Dark gold with a beige head. Sweet fruity and malty start with a mild dry finish. Slight spice there too. Medium bodied. Good session beer.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle at the Beer Circus, Croydon, London.. Sourish, aged aroma, sherbet. Golden hazy, slight, tight white head. Loads of fruit, malt evident, juicy and even some spice. Very tasty.
