2009. Clear orange brew with a big white bubbly skull, good sticky lacing as well. The aroma is very good! Nice spice, solid yeast, stiff sharp fruit (light apple, some tropical notes), Very nice - not complicated but that is fine. The taste is equally as enjoyable as the aroma. Well spiced, some pepper, allspice, apples and tropical, dank dark yeasty qualities - reminds me of a Unibroue. Solid spice finish, medium body, no oily finish or anything bad. This is a fine beer. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2011

Very nice malty sweet mouthfeel. Flavor is malty, hoppy bitter, slightly pungeant, spicy, fruity sweet, perry and grassy. Finishes with a nice warming alcohol touch and pleasant malty bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyable beer over today’s BBQ dinner, great carbonation, colour ... delightful.

750 ml bottle.Pours a copper-pale orange clear amber with a very thick, very persistent white head. Smells herbal and fruity. Tastes like fruit, raisin, pear, bread, fruity cake, sweet caramel. Very complex, yet quite sweet beer. Strong alcohol finish, with a bit of bitterness. Warming. Body is medium. Excellent amber ale. Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2012

Funky, tart aroma with banana and stable elements. Clear golden white head. Malty sweet taste with lots of bread in combination with a fair bit of tartiness. Light body, lively carbonation dry. A really light and refreshing beer despite its alcohol content Turtles (2575) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2015
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a thick fluffy head that lingers and leaves lacing. The aroma is sweet, honey, yeast, toffee, pear. Medium body with many small bubbles that tickle your mouth, fresh and sweet mouth feel. The taste is complex with fruit and caramel flavors. Pear, candied apples, citrus, orange marmalade, caramel. Finish with some alcohol warmth. Very well-made! vidmidia (286) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 8, 2016
Cor de mel, límpida. Espuma abundante e persistente. Aroma adocicado de caramelo, mel e cítricos. Sabor adocicado equilibrado, levemente ácido, com notas de caramelo, mel, casca de laranja e pera. Retrogosto amargo, um pouco adstringente. jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2003
Good deal of carbonation with a thick white head and a slightly orange-yellow appearance. Yeasty, musty nose. Slightly metallic and a light sour, tart component as well. This beer improved much as the carbonation settled and the complex subtleties of the beer shone through. malty (12) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2005
