Bottle. Batch 165. Made in 2006. One finger foam. Alcoholic wooden leather cara-malty aromas. The hops are well hiding or gone. Raisin taste. Good body and lively carbonated after all these years. Splendid brew. Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süß-hopfiger Antrunk, prickelnd, zunehmend bitter, was aber nicht wirklich so stark wird, wie es sich anfangs andeutet. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier gar etwas milder, die bittere Andeutung verpufft. Der Hopfen steht hier im Vordergrund, daneben ist interessanterweise eine leichte Honignote zu erkennen. Das Bier wird weiter milder, eine Süße Note bleibt. Danke an DerDoppelbock für das Bier! 8/11/12/12/7/12

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2007, Valby. Pours an unclear orange beer with a creamy white head. The aroma is hops with fruit and flowers. The flavor is sweet and vinious with herbs. The palate is rich. Has a high carbonation level. Good tripel. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Aromas of pepper were the first impression. Flavors of fruit came through more so than the spice, but then on the finish, the spice was definitely there. Good stuff. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Flip-top bottle. Pours cloudy orange-golden, capped with a frothy white head. Floral hop aroma, a bit intense for the style, with some pineapple and brown sugar. Hops take the forefront in the flavor as well, with grass, tropical fruit, honey and alcohol. Fairly smoth bodied. Nice interpretation. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2008
Bottled. Hazy golden colour with some particles floating around and a nice longlasting beigeish creamy head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and quite yeasty with some notes of herbs too. Flavour is quite much the same with some alcohol and more spices added. User37895 (3042) - - APR 7, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Robert at SL. The pour was golden clear yellow in color with neat little floaties, nice loud pop upon opening, lots of carbonation bubbles furiously rising to the surface, excellent initial head, great retention, solid lacing. The aroma was yeast and bread, citrus lemons, coriander. Flavor followed the aroma with a touch of bananas and grass in the finish. Spritzy, highly carbonated mouthfeel, overly carbonated perhaps, squeeky clean (slight acidity?) finish. Decent stuff, though. Thanks, Robert!
