unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
Spicy and yeasty aroma with lots of alcohol sweetness. Clear golden colour, with lots of carbonation. Head is white and lasts surprisingly long for a beer with such a high alcohol contents. Tast corresponds well with the aroma eventhough the alcohol contents is even more dominating. Falls somewhere in between "to much alcohol" and "pretty good"

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 15, 2007
NorCal tasting June 07 - A really nice beer here. I doubt that I could drink many of these with it clocking in at 11% alcohol, but one would do me just fine. Aroma is light apricots and apples with a noticeable alcoholic bite to it. Appearance is hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky. Flavor is bubblegummy, yeasty, subtley fruity with a hot finish. Not bad. Reminds me of Piraat a bit.

750ml. Nose of yeast roll. Pale golden ale. Sweet, lite bubble gum, yeast flavors w/ a slight burn. Minimal hop bite. Pretty good.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 31, 2007
The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a clear, golden yellow colored beverage with a small creamy white head that was completely lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The aroma was sour. It was primarily sour fruit notes but there were also hints of old leather, pepper and coriander. The body was medium-full with a soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly sour on the tip of the tongue then as it matures on the palate it takes on a sweeter character. The finish is long and has a definite alcohol warmth high in the throat.

radagast83 (7637) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Draft at the Beer Festival. Poured a hazy yellow color. Aroma is yeasty, malty, and has a very noticable alcohol presence. Flavor is much the same, with a sweetish/alcohol finish. I would suspect thats not a supprise since its 11%.

Delirium (662) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
Draught. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is spicy yeast, sweet malt, and some alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol and spice kick, with yeast and malt body, and a lingering semi-sweet finish. The 11% alcohol is definitely noticeable, but not "hot". Pretty good!

Skinnyviking (9214) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Low white head. Hazy yellow body. Lemon aroma nice crispy and sharp. Bittersweer or actually quite sweet plus dominated by the high alcohol percentage.
