larsga (7567) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
Medium offwhite head doesn’t last. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Mealy honey and dried fruit aroma with papery resiny notes. Dry-sweet honeyish resiny old books taste with syrupy funky notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dry honeyish resiny old books aftertaste with fruity notes. Lovely! Like a really good vintage beer, which I guess it partly is. (0.75l bottle from beermerchants. Label said best before end of 2010.)

gunnar (9217) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours clear golden with a big white head, disappears fast. Aroma of honey, caramel and wheat. Taste is sweet, marmelade and honey, ends quite fast, with a light alcohol bite.

mcberko (18081) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 750mL bottle, pours pale golden orange. Aroma of wheat, caramel and apples. Flavour is sort of an amplified apple juice, with wheat and candied sugar as well. Quite decent.

Ungstrup (37889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2011
Bottled. A golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey, malt, and citrus fruits.

Fin (10621) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
On tap at The Cask & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 29.12.10 Pours hazy amber with just a tiny rim of bubbles. Sweetish smelling aroma with some honey and a light floral note but then a nail varnish waft. Quite thick in the mouth, sweet, with honey and floral things going on again the alcohol is noticeable but keeps reasonably well behind the scenes considering the strength. It’s ok but I’m glad that I saw it on tap as I would have been a tad disappointed if I’d have shelled out £11 or £12 a bottle, as it was paying £4 a half for what was comfortably only the fourth best of the beers that I had in this place today shows that I wasn’t overly impressed.

Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2010
Tap at the Rake. Pours clear, rich gold with a medium, white head. Strong wheat and sugar aroma, some light fruits. Flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, sugar, honey and bread. Perhaps some more fruit. Medium to full in body with fine, effervescent carbonation. Warming finish with sweet, heavy wheat notes. Decent.

planky84 (3300) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall. Honey coloured pour with a white head. Toffee, honey and caramel aromas. More honey in the flavour (unsurprisingly) with a dash of caramel and butterscotch. Definitely a dessert wine feel. Sweet, malty finish.

3.6
imdownthepub (14755) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 750ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Sparkling amber with white head. Rich honeyed, heavyish beer, full on the palate but with a slight effervescence. Some caramel flavours from the malt and seemingly the sugars, some alcohol bite and a vague fruitiness. Pretty decent.

3.5
Velkyal (322) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2010
It pours a rich amber, with a slightly off-white head, which at first disappeared rather quickly but when I would top up my glass it came back and hung about. The nose is full of rich fruity sweetness, honey, and there were also some banana and clove spicy notes coming through as the beer warmed up. The dominant flavour is the sweetness of honey, although with a noble hop background which prevented the sweetness from being overly cloying, in the background I could taste caramelised bananas
