Rich in the flavours of pears & apples it has analmost champagne like texture with a tight bubbly fizz, unlike most ales. After what will be a delightful first taste surprise the second mouthful will confirm the richness of this beer with flavours hinting at brandy & calvados. Garlic Roasted Chicken, Rich Roasted Porkwith apple sauce, even the dessert "Tarte Tartin" will be enhanced beyond compare with this superb beer!! So forget the wine and experience the difference that "Friend of the Devil" offers!!

Garrold (5836) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Bakers and Larners of Holt, Norfolk. Clear golden. Big, white, persistent head. Lemon, yeast, grain, white pepper. Taste is sour, dry, some lemon. Slightly sickly mouthfeel, but not in a bad way. If there can be such a thing. Dry, pithy finish.

Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Semi dry palate. A little creamy malt, dry. Sweet notes of orange, peach and bubblegum in the background. Dry finish. Not bad if a tad over dry.

Ratman197 (15620) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2012
375 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott!) poured a hazy gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, pear, yeast, light grassiness and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, pear, yeast and white pepper with a crisp lightly tart lingering fruity finish.

Corked bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
batch 12121015, bb Aug 2013

Hazy deep blond color with generous head. Light aroma, light coriander, malt, lemon. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is quite round, due to a moderate sweetness; the flavor thou is very simple, with light candy fruitiness and light vegetables (wrong temperature for fermentation/maturation?). Average to low bitterness.
It’s forgettable like, for example, the many American attempts at Belgian Ales.

omhper (25950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2011
Bottled, from the brewpub. Hazy golden, minimal head. Appley nose. Sweetish with too much green apples, some coriander. Above medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Mashed apples in a finish with low bitterness.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle from Kris Wines, London, shared with Slothez on thanksgiving. Murky looking orange pour with minimal head that faded to nowt. Aroma was yeast, orchard fruit and malts. Flavour was slightly sour with yeast and fruit notes. Tolerable, if a little strange. The bottle and label look great......

Ungstrup (38933) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2011
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of fruit and malt as well as lighter notes of over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fresh and over ripe fruits.
