suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Hazy straw colored pour. Big white, whipped cream like, head. Slowly falls leaving behind a swath of creamy lacing behind. Slight banana pie and malt aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Malty sweet with faint hints of banana left over. Not bad at all. I had lower hopes.

(Bottle, Monks Caf Wallingatan, Stockholm) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of orange, dried apricots and coriander seeds. Slightly vinous. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, a solid malt profile and spicy bitterness in a finish with a warming touch of alcohol. Almost full body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty, powerful and well balanced. Nice one.

Gary (1933) - Grime Hood , Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
(Bottled). A beer I was expecting to be unslick and boozy , but its 10 % is nice and relaxing .. its a pretty swillable drink really .I drank this in like 5 minutes . Looks very Belgian in a Chimay goblet .... powerful body shows rich and peppery notes , then fruity orange zest or marmalade , some bubblegum estery texture and kisses of raw alcohol in a warming dry finish.... A charming beer..
