Earlier Rating: 10/21/2002 Total Score: 2.4
Sampled draught at Thembi, Maastricht.
Brownish amber with creamy rich head. Huge on caramel in the nose. Very sweet. Malty start but vanishes into a sugary, syrupy finish. Feels one-dimensional and industrial.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
Canned, thanks Bjrn. Pours out in a clear pale amber colour with a low white foam. Quite sharp aroma of alcohol and red apples with nutty undertones. medium-bodied with strong notes of salt, alcohol, rubber and toasted nuts. Dryish finish of faint toasted malts, nuts and hot peppery alcohol.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
Tasting at my place. Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of malt and apple and the flavour has light notes of malt, apple, candy sugar and light citrus. The finish is dry. Considering the style this is quite nice.

TBone (16449) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2008
Can (BB 06/2009)
Amber-reddish clear color, not much head. Aroma has malts, metal, caramel, cardboard and barnyard (just after pouring). Sweetish, almost syrapy strong lager - apple-like fruityness mixed with crystal sugar. A bit grainy. Finish has harsh maltyness and caramel. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Sweet, bareable strong lager. As a Belgian beer, nothing to speak about, but in its style, ok.
