jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Reviewed 1/22/2010 (Bottle): Pours a big foamy off-white head. Semi-turbid body, dark amber in color. Creamy head, good lacing, almost like melted ice cream. Very hoppy sour smelling aroma. Sweet sour aroma. Dry and grapefruity. Chewy taste, some nutty biscuitiness. Light taste. Bitter and sour, but not hoppy tasting. Was expecting more hops. Slight sour taste, and something else. Can’t taste the alcohol. Not a fan, not much taste.

Easily misted, dark golden beer, very good foam. Aroma: old hay, strawberries, spices, herbs, malt, flowers. Taste: very dry, malt with pear, bitter, slightly chalky, light acidity, white wine, warming, slightly citrus and vodka. Not bad.

On tap at Mikkeller Berlin. The Brett makes this really great. Aroma is very spicy, a bit funky, something mushroomy, sweet Candi sugar; nice complexity, lots of aromas. Flavour is also somewhat funky, nice maltiness, medium sweet, some acidity, spicy, refreshing. Brilliant!

darbeer75 (912) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Aroma: much sweeter than expected; candy and a little malt; Appearance: hazy amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: maltiness a bit too much; results in an odd, unpleasant finish; Palate: heavy body with long, malty finish; Overall: would not get again.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Ciężkie, słodkie, lekko apteczne, pozostawiające specyficzny posmak, kojarzący mi się z wizytą u dentysty.

SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle from fridge, maybe 8 yrs old? Clear deep copper with a minimal cream colored head. The aroma is spicy, flowery, sweet and fragrant. The flavor is softly bitter and dry with a finish that mirrors the flowery fragrance of the aroma. Nice beer.
