CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 26, 2004
[on tap, Udine 2004] Slightly hazy, golden body. Yeast, hops and spices, softened by a fruity touch. Crisp, easy to drink with a good dry finish. A nice belgian ale; definitely reminded me of a witbier due to its yeasty character.

Choos (590) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2004
Bubblegum & citrus aroma small head with soap bubble lacing. Cloudy yeast gold pear colour with stacks of dead yeast residue. Begins sweet and smooth gives way to noticeable sourness with some fresh pine needle notes high carbornation for me.

vanvenlo (1191) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 8 May 2004 - The first impression, I had was of a sweet lambic infectitious, sort of taste. Bubblegum and citrus aroma with earthy notes flavours. Quite good mouthfeel, but very light given it dissolves in the mouth. Flat flavour/palate that needs more fruit and hops.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 4, 2004
pretty murky with bits of floating stuff that tasted of coriander. some compost in the aroma. lightly sweet, banana nectar and a vanilla finish. dunno why no one seems to like this

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004
Slightly hazy with really poor head. Tinned apricot aroma, with phenols, coriander and non-alcoholic supermarket sparkling white wine. Tastes strongly of melons (ie. like Midori), with apricots, though it is pretty dry. Very fruity, but good nonetheless. I agree with Eczematic’s comment about it being halfway between a wit and blonde.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2004
this was a lovely beer, like a blonde and a wit combined. malt, peaches, baked apple, spice aromas. taste blooms with peaches and malt before a quenchingly tart finish. silky mouthfeel. i could drink a lot of this stuff.

rauchbier (3587) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2004
Bottle conditioned, ZBF 2004. Hazy gold, low white head and moderate condition. Initial aniseed aroma becoming fruity tart but with a background wild yeast note that I found distracting. Some fruitiness in the mouth but the infected edge was still intrusive and lingered into the finish. Either I had a bad bottle, or I just didn't understand what was going on with this one.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2004
Strong vinuous and fruity aroma. Has moderate bitterness and is a little sour. Lacks a distinctive fruit or yeast flavour, overall bland.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2004
Hazy light golden body with OK head. Weak fruity aroma with orange notes. Nice fruit, mandarin and spices flavor but way too watery and thin. An OK beer but needs some fullness!

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2004
Light golden color with a white head. The taste is fruity, bitter and kind of watery... Not the best brew from this brewer.
