Bottle. 37.5 cl. Unclear orange color with a average fizzy good lacing mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is light toffee / caramel, berry sweet and sour.

yespr (49173) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2008
From tap/cask at Bier Circus according to the chalkboard - I did see a 10 L box of this while easting and the beer was served living room temp. hot. Pours cola brown, clear, has a little bobbly white head. Light caramel aroma, light sweet note, but mainly a mild butterish note. Sweet caramel flavour wit a light butterish flavour and somewhat butterish mouthfeel. Light caramel lingering finish, shows a mild acidic bite aswell. Just plain boring cane sugarish and caramel brew.

Ungstrup (39104) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
A deep red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of sugar on a sour background but also hints of wood. The flavor is dominated by grapefruit and is sweet on a sour background with notes of wood lending it a dryness and hints of brown sugar. The sourness is not that accentuated, but yet it draws some mouthwater. It ends on a note of grapefruit.

Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2008
On draught at Bier Circus. I don’t like sweet beers, so I didn’t expect much from this one, but the owner Patrick talked me into it. Glad he did. Wonderful balance of sweet/sour, with great complexity. Tops the Cantillon Faro, which I had the night before. An incredible experience.

madmitch76 (26850) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2010
7th March 2010. Clear dark amber beer. No head whatsoever. Zero carbonation. Dry palate. Some sourness comes through before sweet coca cola kicks in. A little repressed worcester sauce. Finishes airy and dry.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Bottled. Dark rubyish brown colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramel and a lot of sourness. Flavour is the same with some malty and fruity hints. Also slight metallicness noted.

2.6
omhper (26040) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2004
Sampled draught (bag-in-box) at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Reddish amber, clear no head. Apple aroma. Sweet and still, fruity and clean. Pleasant and caramelly up front, but with artificial saccaharine liek finish. Not up to par with the rest of the Girardins
