500 ml swingtop bottle, kindly shared by my beerpal Ivar. ABV is 6,5%. Hazy amber colour, minimal head. Aroma of sweet wort and caramel, hints of oak and honey. Low carbonation. The flavour is not as sweet as the aroma makes you expect, but is still malty with hints of caramel, and has tolerable hops in the finish. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2010

6- Sweet fleshy fruity aroma. Anna gets peach, I get the tomato sauce you find in baked beans. Some sodium ethanoate acidity regulator too. As it warms, it becomes breadier, and loses the dodgier aspects.
3 Clear orange, almost no head
7 Lovely sweet fruity and spicy taste, with a decent bready backbone to hang the other components on. No trace of alcohol at all.
4 Smoothinsh palate, gentle carbonation, but with a nice tingle aided by the bitter noble hops. Finish is a pleasant glide from the sweeter caramelly and fruity aspects to the husky and dry, almost papery, hops.
14 The initial weird aroma when cold prejudiced me a little against this, but after a few sips I was hooked. I can imagine drinking pint after pint of this in summer time, despite the 6.5%
Tap. Large white foamy head over a clear light gold body. Aroma and taste of coriander seed with a balanced body and slightly sweet finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking. BoBoChamp (5754) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2010
