750 ml. Swing top bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a thick, fluffy, rapidly collapsing, light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a clear, amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is light cinnamon, allspice, bit of toffee/caramel, light fig, plum, citrus.....taste is sweet malts with light brown sugar to start, then light fruits, apple, pear, plum, fig, finishing with a mild floral sweetness,musty tones throughout....mouth feel, light, carbonation adds light spritz. This meets the style, but is lighter than many in a number of characteristics. The malt is not forward enough, and the aroma is almost cola like in some of its qualities.

0,33 l. bottle from Vinbørsen, Copenhagen. Hazy, amber colour. The head is creamy with some bigger bubbles, white in colour and long lasting. Some laceing. Aroma has spiciness, sour apples and perhaps vinegar. I get malty caramel, cinnamon and sour fruits in the medium lasting finish. A nice, warming, complex beer Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011

Reddish tinged body, no head, enjoyed on tap at The Blue Monk. Yeasty aroma, good yeast in taste. Some fruitiness and hops. Decent drinker, fine for the style as well. Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Had at an ESBLS tasting. An amber pour with a thin head. The nose was of over ripe fruit and malt. Light fruit, apple butter, and light spices. A theme of apples ran throughout and that gave the beer a bit of an edge. Somewhat tart and slightly bitter. Not overly flavorful but nicely complex.

Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Fruity floral herbal aroma with cardamom, peach, and coriander notes. Dry-sweet yeasty fruity peachy taste with mealy cardamom notes. Light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel with faint oily butter. Dryish herbal honeyish fruity aftertaste with coriander and pepper notes. Very nice and highly drinkable. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.) Pinball (12156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2010
clear amber, quite small white head.
grassy, slightly fruity , caramelly slightly malty aroma, reminds me clearly of french biere de garde.
flavor is caramelly, malty, sort of fruit peely bitter, and alc. a little fruits, and some metal. Alc. seems to be a bit too high, given the other flavors are quite mild.
