oh6gdx (25972) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, huge beige head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, slightly earthy and some mild alcohol too. Flavour is warming alcohol, spices, fruits and some bitterness. Pleasant.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
330ml bottle, Quinns, 12th August 2007 (with Mes and Sim). Pours a cloudy amber. Spicy wheat and malt aroma, with the same elements carried through in the taste. The palate is heavy with the strength, unsurprisingly, somewhat evident. Nice beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. Too much raw alcohol in this one for me to enjoy it in any way. Lots of citric, yeasty, Belgian style qualities and then the peppery, raw alcohol in the finish.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Quinns. Sweet malty aroma. Great looks; cloudy golden with a good head and lots of lace. Malted biscuit flavour with some very obvious alcohol and hints of spice and ginger. Nice thick palate with a slight sting from the carb. The hops put in an appearance for the finish but it leaves you with very definite lime and grapefruit. The only real let down is the metalic note in the flavour.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2006
Super carbonated hazy dull yellow with a big loose head. Sweet, floral, light caramel aroma with a bit of marshmallow. Somewhat oxidized. Light and spritzy, a little bitter. Mild flavors of malt and hops. Not particularly distinct.
