voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of apricot, yeast, syrup and cashew nuts. Medium body and smooth mouthful, flavours of stonefruits, nuts, yeast and sweet nectar. Sweet nectary finish, pretty interesting, but seemed a little thin and sweet in places.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
Cloudy golden body, large white head with good lacing. Barnyard and cheese aroma. Not very tasty but what it tastes is unusual and somewhat pleasant. Malty, cheesy, watermelon, vanilla, sweet, grassy hops. A mix bag that doesn’t all stick. Why it bears the respectable 3 Fonteinen name is a mystery to me. Despite owning Jaguar I don’t see Ford selling a Jaguar Focus.

haukur (1344) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 19, 2006
bottle (BB 06/06). Surprising, surprising! Golden duvel color with a dence head. Aroma is very different from other blonde´s, very saisonal but with a more down to earth balance-ness! Massively yeasty with some coriander and spices, maybe some wheat. Nice blonde

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Draught. Pours foggy orange-gold with a frothy white head leaving intricate lace sheets. The aroma is excellent - lots of grassy hops and then notes of cookie dough. Underwhelming hop profile though there is a bit of sharp bitterness that doesn’t mix well. The malts are cookiesh but seem too sweet for the most part. Yeasty and alcoholic. Sampled at the restaurant in Beersel on May 11, 2006.

pivnizub (9005) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 16, 2006
Bottle (donated by Yogi_Beera!): Orangey coloured, creamy off-white layer, a bit lacing; robust fruity nose: oranges, lemons, orange-peel with a touch of wheat malt and yeast; only light sweetish, mainly dry fruity flavour with an illusion of acidity, creamy mouthfeel; fruity, citrousy finish with a shy tart bitterness; well rounded with well hidden alcohol......A very pleasant Wheat-beer...........or Ale ?

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2006
Bready with alot of fruit flavor, alcohol is there, but it doesn´t dominate, very smooth, easy drinking. very solid beer. Thanks to Yogi_Beera for this one!

Dark yellow colored, hazy appearance. Big white head. Sweetness, spices, fruits, mild alcohol and licorice in aroma. Medium bodied. Dry flavored: mild spices in aftertaste with some alcohol.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
3 year old bottle, at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp March 2005. Copper bronze, moderate off white head and good condition. Sweet yeast and gentle banana fruitiness in the nose, more sweetness and bananas in the mouth with a pleasant underlying oxidized note, gentle chalky yeast lingering in the finish.

jonas (5774) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle from secret santa Nat
Fruity, light spongy and carboardy aroma. Hazy orange amber, blanket lacing head. Heavy and round first impression, strength is evident, fruity, hayish, minerally yeast. Oily mouthfeel, pearling carbonation. Bready aftertaste.

hazy orange colour with a firm creamy head and a beautiful lacing; bready nose with citrusy, grapefruity notes; tart, medium to full malt body, some acidity and a long dry aftertaste of orange peel and almonds - a very nice brew
