This reminds me about Delirum, just a tad sharper. The head isn’t very lasting and the alcohol is very clear in the prickly and sour mouth feel. The alcohol joins forces with citrus and coriander, and leaves no room for other notes. IMO it should be far smoother and have more complexity, it’s too raw and unrefined.

great golden color under a medium and white head wich does not disappear. The nose is creamy apricot. Fruity and yeastly flavour with a great body. Nice carbonation under the big percent of alcohol. Tons of coriander:)

Golden hazy with a medium fizzy, white head. Fruity, yeast, spices and some sweet malts. Thin, carbonated body. Spicey flavor, yeast, malts, some fruit sweetness. Finish has a nice spice bite. Alcohol is well hidden throughout. Quality brew.

Unclear gold with a fine lasting white head. Aroma is sweet from yeast & fruits. The body is medium filling. Lively carbonation. The alcohol warms up my body a bit & is also noticeable in flavor. Quite nice!

Bottle 33cl: In a tulip glass. A great golden colour with slight sediment which is nice. A great white head that doesn’t dissipate. Great lacing on the glass which holds in thickness. Nice aroma of yeast, hops and subtile spices. Great taste in spite of it’s strength of 9.3. Hidden very well with a taste of hops, corriander and slightly fruitty with a nutty edge. The yeasty alchohol taste is not overpowering, but it is present.

Bottle, 33cl. Firm white head. Beer is yellow, slightly golden. Aroma is citrus and malty. Fresh citrus flavor, with sharp mouthfeel. Overall a medium to good beer.

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2007
8.5% bottle. Pale, spritzy, silkily headed. Aromas of dried apricot, hop grassiness and too much booze. Some biscuity malt and hop dryness detectable, but too aggressively alcoholic. Poor man’s DT.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2007
Deep cloudt yellow with a lot of carboantion visibile but no sign of sediment. Big, sudsy pure white head with fair retention and lacing. Spicy sour citrus aroma with a crisp edge. Flavour matches the aroma with the alcohol adding some nice warmth. Sour finish. Very good but not great.
