Ferris (15274) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Apple, yeast, orange, grains and bread. Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, apple, grains and light orange. I get a very mild bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness overpowers. The thick mouth feel makes this a slow going beer. I think this would pair well with a desert or fruit, much in the way of an Ice Wine. As this warms, it is starting to taste more like a light quad. Fruits stand out more, and although apple still prevails it is still pretty good.

bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Ceramic bottle. BB 08/06/11. Aroma of malt and candy sugar with a bit of stone fruit. Slightly hazy golden color with a firm, lasting head. Thin to medium bodied. Starts with sweet fruit, yeast spice, and a touch of warmth. The finish is a touch of clove, lingering sweetness, and a touch of bitter. Quite nice.

gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle. Golden-orange colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, sugar, spices. Flavour is sweet, sugar, malt, hop, spices. OK beer.

2.8
DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. As "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear deep golden with a nice, big, stable white head. Aroma has some fruitiness, alcohol, some floral and grassy hops and light grainy hints. Rather sweet alcoholic flavor with some malt, honey notes, some fruitiness, yeasty notes and a drier finish, slightly spicy, with light bitterness and some more alcohol. Medium-bodied. So-so.

2.4
djd07 (14508) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, and clove. Medium mouthfeel with yeast and clove. Alcohol present but not overpowering a decent blond.

3.5
Borup (14492) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
75 cl. bottle at KØ15. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit, yeast, spice and caramel.

3.3
Tmoney99 (14480) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a huge frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy yeasty citrus aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a drinkable soft beer.

3.4
HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
Ceramic bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Some fruity notes. Moderate bitter flavor with nice fruity esters present. Oily palate.

2.3
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(16oz ceramic bottle) Completely flat from the bottle, once again the seal of bottle cap to ceramic was inadequate from St. Sebastiaan. Particulate-hazy amber body. Aroma is very sweet, honey, flowery, peach. Taste is moderately sweet, maple, some herb, cookie dough, flowery, alcohol, light cantalope, grape. Watery, flat, medium-full body. I would be willing to re-rate with an intact bottle, but this rating will be factored in -- a bottling defect like this is on the head of the brewer.

3.4
Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle at the 5th Annual Epic Beer Tasting in Richmond, VA, November 28, 2010. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin head. Some considerable floaties. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malts, bitter leafy hops, peach and a nutty finish. The taste is candi sugar, pale malts and a spicy finish. Medium bodied.
