winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Poured from a 33 cL bottle. Amber colored with a thin off-white head. Large amount of sediment present, definately not filtered. Aroma has a certain caramel and biscuit scent, also some light fruit, but not much. Flavor is a bready maltiness followed by a light sweet fruitiness and a nice hop kick. Palate is a little watery with an abrasive finish. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2006
cloudy and murky dark amber body...major sediment present...aroma of major sugar, fruit, spice, and caramel...flavor is similar and is much too sweet...dry and somewhat bitter finish...average palate DuffMan (10421) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2006
Golden amber, aromas of bready sweetness, something faintly floral. Smooth malty palate, a little perfumy, a little bitter. Very drinkable. ganache (5893) - New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Tap in Amsterdam. Very good session beer, amber-colored with little head. Some sweetness. A little simple, but easy to order in bunches. [2006.04.25: 3.1]Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
33cL, this bottle marked 06 2014 (born on, I think), this time stateside. Nose is sweetly malty with a beautiful “amber” essence – hard to describe it any other way – and light grain and suggestion of corn behind the candyish sugar. Pours hazy amber-copper with a soapy but lacing beige head. Taste moderately dry and lightly tart, light bitterness and a bold caramel and malt flavor right up the middle. Hops are noble-ish and held very low. Childish candy and soda qualities remains, but neither is dominant. Fizzy fullish body relatively clean and definitely refreshing. I’d have thought I’d have outgrown this by now, but nope, I’m probably down for another. Just a simple, repeatable pleasure in line with Sam Adams or SNPA. [2014.10.07: 3.1]
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours copper color with an off-white head, aroma of sweet malts, fruit, and some spices. I didn’t care for the flavor, yet i finished the bottle.

Looks good but tastes weak. On tap at everybody’s pizza. Slightly sweet aroma. Bitter taste predominates. Very thin with a quick finish. bhensonb (15187) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 15, 2006
Filtered? Mine had sediment. Color is hazy amber. Aroma is a bit acid. Perhaps a bit thin. Tart and a bitterness that lasts to the finish. Refreshing. I don’t, yes, I do, find a bit of sweetness, but it didn’t appear immediately. The fruit develops after several sips. I could drink this frequently. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2006

Bottle 33 cl thanks to Ingo! On January 8, 2016.
Clear copper oxide color, smallish off-white head with some lacing. Malty, fruity, berries, cream, pear (päronsplit) scent. Malty, sweet, slight bitter, light grainy, light fruity, hints of yeasty spicy taste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness.
Poured with a nice lasting head. Nice mild, bready aroma. Sweetness that stuck to my lips, but was vanquished by a bitter finish that grew to dominate the palate by the end of the glass. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer and enjoyed it thoroughly - was expecting something bland along the lines of Brugse Zot. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2006
On tap@ Falling Rock poured a clear copper with a lasting off white head. Aromas of fruit, light spice and honey. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of mild fruit and light spice with a smooth, dry finish.
