Can shared by Vferg, thanks man. Pours a brown body with an off white head. Coriander, lemon, dry earth. Lime with some light fruity esters. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Can. Brown pour. Nice fruity aroma with brown sugar, yeast, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. Flavor is rich and full, good caramel and fruit to go along with the interesting spices. Borresteijn (7400) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2009
50cl Can, a gift from a collegue who’s uncle-in-law is one of the brewers, thanks Gijs! Hazy reddish brown colour, dense creamy off white head. Aroma of malts, alcohol, dark fruits, yeast, light lime and lemongrass, which gives the aroma a nice touch. Flavour is malty sweet, dark fruits, some chocolate, alcohol, yeast, light spices with a nice oriental twist to it, light dry bitter finish. Adding the yeast adds a touch of sourness. Soft creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2009
Reddish brown, quite pale for the style. An off-white very big head with good retention leaves lots of lacings.
Distinct, freshly tart lemon aromas, some spices and earthy yeast upon a decent caramel malty backbone.
The taste is not too impressive. Quite a lot of spices and herbal notes. Citric notes are present, but slightly muted, and add a hint of tartness to the dominating sweetness. I get a very very faint note of funky blanket and stale yeast, and I’m wondering if this bottle is completely healthy. Decent malty flavors of caramel and chocolate, but for a double it’s quite bland and one-sided. The finish is mildly bitter with spices, citric notes and warming phenolic alcohol. An almost burning sensation lingers on in the mouth, and I don’t know what’s causing it.
Quite full-bodied and smooth. Good.
Interesting and not as weird as it sounds like. But still, it’s a bit edgy and unbalanced.

Can 50 cl. Thx Mikkel. Pours a....shiiit be aware this baby likes to flood. Dark amber with a major tanned head. The nose is a bit yeasty and metallic with some lime too. The taste is strange - the inspiration from the belgian doubles is clear but it really doesn´t seem to blend very well with the other exotic stuff. The perfumic sweetness combined with spices from the far east..naaa not really. It is more strange with a funny idea than good imo. The finish is sweet and spicy. Mouthfeel is bubbly with a harsch finish. Wouldn´t serve this to thai-food - or any other kind of food for that matter.

16 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a collapsing off-white head. Citrusy, yeasty and slight wheaty aroma. Spiced and slight caramelish malty. Phenolic yeasty and dry flavoured finish. Dry lasting impression. Light citrusy touch. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2009
Can (50cl.) at dæmningen - shared with Mette. Cloudy brown - white head. Roasted, yeasty, candy, sweetness, rubber, nutty, spicy, lime citrus, lemongrass, coriander. Classic - to style. Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2009
Bottled. An unclear reddish beer with a huge lazing and collapsing light tan head. The aroma has notes of lime, lemongrass, and coriander as well as lighter notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices - coriander and lemongrass, as well as alcohol, but also medium notes of caramel, fruit, and malt, leading to a dry spicy finish. hirigalzkar (3242) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2009
Can. Beautiful dark amber color with a big creamy and long lasting head. Perfect! The taste and aroma has the typical abbey dubbel character of sweet chocolate malt. Add some spices, and lots of lime and you get this beer. Interesting and refreshing! SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 17, 2009
On tap at the Toronado in San Diego. Pours reddish amber gold with a thick white head. Sugary candy aroma of bananas and marzipan. Sipcy finish with a tinge of cinnamon. Nice peppery midpoint with a huge amount of oranges. Very sweet flavor with nutmeg and spiciness. Good stuff.
