Can the sampling be saved? Well, sort of...this beer was a bit of a relief after trying the pathetic Stoney Creek Red Ale. Poured cloudy yellow-orange with plenty of yeast "floaties" and a thin off-white head. Sour white grape aroma, rather "ozoney" (phenolic) with toasty caramel. Flavor was a bit undifferentiated but not bad, with caramel, toast and spice mingling with white grape and apple peel. Pretty good, but a bit on the boring side. leaparsons (10764) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2004
Golden with a bit white head of foam. Aromas are sweet grainy malts, floral hops and some metallic notes. Flavours are quite malty with some crisp grain. A treat compared to the five "world lagers" I have just had. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2004
Aroma is citrus and dry. Color is an off orange and very cloudy. Taste has a little citrus and wheat, but has a sick little alcohol and bitterness sting. Just came off way to bitter for the style. Drinkable, but I won’t buy it again. Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 28, 2004
Pretty hoppy and bitter. A bit like Hommelbier. A fine flavour and aroma. Quite refreshing and fruity. bierkoning (13680) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2004
Flowery aroma with some honey and summer fruit. Hoppy, flowery, somewhat dusty flavor with mandarin, some berry fruit and a bit of yeast. Some rest sweetness. Short bitter finish.

Bottle Conditioned. BBE June 02. Soft, fragrant and tasty. Pale yellow appearance with some foam on top. Delicate flavours. Decent quality. Lovely drop. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
Cloudy golden coloured. Yeasty aroma. Sweet, fruity, wheaty and yeasty flavour. Slightly thin. MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
Quite special aroma. Sour fruit. Sweet. Yeasty. Pineapple. Very beautiful white head on a amber/bright orange color. Very dry flavor of sparkling yeast in start and middle. Bitter finish. Bitter yeasty palate. Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
The aroma is sweet yeasty, acidic, and corriander. Unclear light yellow with a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is wheaty, corriander, and yeasty with a dry end. A nice beer. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2004
Straw colour. This is undoubtedly a hop-head's beer. Quite tart and refreshing. Cut effortlessly through the sweetish aftertaste left by all those dubbels and strong ales I had drunk earlier. Difficult to judge how it would shape up in isolation (I note that others have not been so impressed) but, in the circumstances, it was just about perfect. Bottled, Brugse Beertje, Bruges, September 2003.
