Deep yellow, frothy head which dissipates. Sweet and lightly spicy aroma, corriander maybe. A tad fizzy on the tongue, but otherwise pleasant sweet light malty palate. Light grainy taste, wheaty even, and a very crisp bitter finisb. Slightly alcoholic, but not imposingly so. saxo (20023) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2007

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear, golden body under a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with banana and citrus dominating. Some spicy notes. Sweet, slightly caramelish flavor with some spices and wheat. Banana and citrus too. Medium body. Herbal bitterness in the finish. Quite nice and easy to drink, but far from outstanding. Hides the alcohol very well. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. Old rating left untouched. (080905)

750ml bottle. Gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of spices, malt and hops. Alcohol evident in flavour along with malt, but then there’s a long bitter finish. Nice lingering taste. Not amazing but a good example of the style and a pleasure to drink. CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2008
75cl bottle: Pours a rich gold with a decent, but fading, off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, sugar, some hop, and toast. Flavors of malt, bubblegum, earthy hop and cotton candy. A smooth graininess and alcohol come in the middle followed by toasted marshmallow. The finish is of hops and some light fruits. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2008
Golden with tiny white head. Sweet aroma with orange peel and yeasty notes. Sweet fruity flavor with caramel and hoppy notes. Ends dry. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2008 33cl bottle. Sweet malts, honey and flowery hops with caramel. Maybe some raisins too. Frothy white head with decent lacing. Clear body. Taste is salty and yeasty with some nuttiness and metal in the finish. Dry and fizzy. Overall nothing to really write home about.
Rerate thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a clear gold with a white head that leaves great lacing (AP:4/5). Aroma is diaceeytl, caramel, toasted bread and a bit husky towards the finish (AR:6/10). Taste is husky and vegital with DMS and diacetyl. Very off flavored, unbalanced and crude with light caramel. (F:3/10). Fizzy but smooth from the DMS (P:3/5).

(Canned) Golden colored with huge white head. Sweet and spiced, fruity and somehow sour aroma with metallic hints. Medium bodied. Flavor is richer with sweet caramel and some oaky tone, also fruits, hops and mild alcohol present here. Aftertaste is hopped still with this honeyish sweetness.
