BelgianBeerGal (4014) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2007
33cL bottle from Woesten. A nice beer with a sweet flavor and hint of alcohol. What really disappointed me was the larger bits of yeast that clumped together in some bottles.

BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
Waited long time to sample thisone. Now, done it, I found it pleasent with good notes of spices, hoppiness, fullbodyness, hazy orange look, sweet alcohol and maybe not so great as expected!

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2007
This one had tons of floating yeast lumps in it, which made it kinda unplesant to drink, and i ended up pooring the last 10cl or so. Fruity and spicey nose of coriander, oranges and other esters. Flavor was, in spite of the yeast lumps, quite decent, mainly sweet creamy notes

Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet with notes of bitter and acidic. Sweet and spicy like finish.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2007
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki) Lightly golden colour. Bitter malty aroma. Slightly guavaey sharp sweet taste, full of light malt and quite bitter too. If you want bitter, dont add much yeast; if you want guava, add more yeast. Slight alcohol, but doesnt spoil it.
