33cL bottle. Golden amber color with nice, lasting head. The aroma is incredible with pear and strawberry and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and the yeast provides a very fresh and dry sensation. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste that is an interesting balance to the profile. Similar to a Belgian blonde ale. Great beer. TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Subtle blend of caramel, tart cherries, and some spices, this is far too easy to drink. That 8.5% is completely hidden, making it even more dangerous. Not the most intricate beer in the world, but well crafted and extremely enjoyable. drpimento (3641) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Sensual beer. Commercial description fits it to a T. Complex, good head and lace. Very slightly hazy amber. Mouth filling good body. Lots of malt. Long finish. Good beer. Had this at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, WI. DutchDrebus (6002) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
According to the bottle i had it was 8,7% abv. Might be an older or newer version. Nice scoring beer. I like the colour and smell. emayer4322 (7) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2011 does not count
Amber color with off-white frothy head. Malty and fruity aroma with hints of alcohol. Up front caramel malt sweetness followed by a quick bitterness. Long sweet fruit finish. Well balanced, creamy, full bodied beer.

I got a very nasty shoc when I opened this bottle. The hiss of the cap being opened preempted a rush of amber beer cascading over the shoulders of the bottle and all over the table, my computer keyboard and nearly all over my new cellphone. What was left in the bottle turned out a gorgeous brown-amber with aromas of gum, spicy stewed apricots with allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Full aromas and sweet malt.
The flavour is spicy again and there’s definite stonefruit, flan and biscuits. But it’s much more complex than that. There’s tang to it and a gentle warming bitterness that lingers long after the fluid has gone down the neck. This is full and very tasty. Memorable. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2013
Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting. jjsint (3110) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Bought it at the St Albans Beer festival four months ago and couldn’t wait any longer. Reddish gold, plentiful carbs and a big off-white head. A hint of strawberries adds to an earthy, yeasty, malty aroma. A pleasant metallic adage also identifiable in the aroma. Taste is bittersweet, doughy and alcoholic (but not too much so). Full creamy texture with the carbonation adds to the palette. Long complex finish. A proper treat. I’m surprised at how nice this is. prawlie (1593) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle. Malty, caramel and spice aroma. Strong malt body with a touch of sweetness and a fine but not heavy handed hop bite. mauroruellas (792) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUL 2, 2016
