Nice colour, for this clear amber beer. Pleasant aromas of caramel, hops and spices. Alcohol taste is present. Oily texture, soft carbonation and long finish.

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle @ some cafe in Brussels. Pours a clear, light nougat body with a moderate white top. Aroma is pale malts, ale yeast and molasses. Taste is too sweet, with caramel and an ale-yeasty smoothness that actually makes the molasses become even worse. Some metallic aftertaste tones. A Belgian-style EPA of the lesser kind, in my opinion.

Dedollewaitor (16359) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2010
33cl Bottle @ Brussels. Pours amber with a small creamy stable head and lacings. Toffee, fruit, grain and caramel. A bit of metal. Medium bodied. Dry bitter end

spkevin (440) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark amber/orange beer with a nice white head. Decent aroma with hints of some grapefruit and fruits. Starts bitter with sweet notes. Nice bitter aftertaste. Could use some more body. Ok brew but not outstanding.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep deep amber with dense white head. Head did not hang around very long leaving a little lace as it falls away. Aromas of honey, caramel, treacle and just a hint of sourness. Good stuff. Flavour wise lots of initial sweetness with more of the toffee and caramel. Finish is reasonably bitter with some sourness. Medium to full mouthfeel. Good beer.

Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours out darker then expected. Even yellow-amberish coloured. Very big white head that holds very good. Don’t looks bad at all. Sour fruits, citrus and also some spices and hops. Not bad, but smells a bit like some soda... Hoppy, bitter but also some soureness of the fruits at the taste. Drinks pretty easy, but more soda-like then I can handle for a beer... A bit sad, cause the taste on his own, and also the smell aren’t bad.

tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2010
*** bottle was 2 years past expiration date *** Pours a clear amber beer, beige creamy head. Smells like caramel, pear and banana, most likely due to it’s age. A pleasant mouth feeling, still enough carbon. Tastes fresh and little sour at first, continues to a sweet malty taste with caramel. Aftertaste is a little sweet, roasted malts and some acidity, again: maybe due to it’s age.
