CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Halfway through the pour this deposited a big glob of protein into the glass, with an audible ’plop’. This seems to be a common problem with des Rocs beers so I will rate on regardless. Cloudy Yellow/orange with lots of sediment floating about. Aroma of spice, fruit, yeast. You can feel the sediment in the mouth and this was slightly offputting for me. I’ll re-rate if a better example comes my way.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2005
Light orange color, cloudy appearance. Big white lasting head. Spicy, mildly fruity aroma with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Spices and mild yeast in flavor with medium alcohol and fruits. Aftertaste is dry with citrus, alcohol and mild pepper.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
Hazy sparkling orange body with a small off white head. Malty light fruity aroma with hints of yeast and alcohol. Malty flavor with a fairly sharp yeastyness and a dry finish.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle: Vibrant yellow, almost golden, large rocky white head, strong carbonation, loads of sediment, clingy lacing.   Spicy nose, sweet.   Musty as well.   Earthy, subtle, on first sip.   Not as sweet as in the nose, malty.   Spritzy mouthfeel, otherwise average.   Not as crisp, floral, or sweet on the tongue as I prefer... still clean & decent however.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle. Large off-white head that was mostly lasting, good lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonated, hazy, and a golden hue. Aroma was malty, sweet, spicy and clove. Flavor was bitter, malty, sweet, hoppy and spicy. Mouthfeel was tingly. Medium body. An excellent and very quaffable brew. Give this one a try if you get the chance.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2005
Light hazy amber color with nice orange glow and with a huge white creamy head. Nose is malty and has a light sweet honeyed accent. In the aroma you can notice the yeast, some touches of lemon-peel, some spices and a light touch of minty spice. It has a lively mouthfeel with a fruity honeyed accent and a nice wheaty and rice like taste. It has around afthertaste and ends with a faint bitter touch.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours amber with an ENORMOUS, steady, fluffy white head. There are many particles suspended in this. It looks like pieces of lemon suspended in lemonade. Aroma is lightly yeasty, light fruit notes, spices, honey and sweet malts. Taste is light spices, yeast, sweet malts, citrus fruits, and more honey. Body is littered with particles and is otherwise creamy despite the massive amounts of carbonation in this. Finish is honey, ripe fruits, yeast and flowers. Light sweetness towards the end as well.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Hazy gold and orange, with an obscene amount of floaties. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind some floaties. But I felt like my front teeth were strainers with this beer. OK head. Aroma of orange, sage, and honey. Flavor had a muted fruitiness, mostly orange, definite spice note with more sage and some white pepper. Finish was straight up honey, with a flavor that reminded me strongly of the Dupont Bier de Miel. Except I didn’t really like this beer.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2005
This beer pours an ambery color with visible suspended yeasts, a very small white head and definite lacing throughout the course of consumption. Also may I add this bubbled all over my counter upon uncapping. The aroma is floral, yeasty, grainy and bananaish. The flavor is medium to full bodied with light floral notes, citrus, grapefruit, wood, and tons and tons of bready grainyness. It felt like a liquid version of Hawaiian bread. Heavy malts, dry..dry...dry finish..heavy cottonmouth here with pepper in the finish. Have a bottle of water handy after this beer is gone! Heavy carbonation usage, yet surprisingly silky on the tongue. Its different, I’ll give it that. A bit of a rough finish, dry and monotonous after a while. Perhaps also a hint of lemon, but its very subdued.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a huge head with great retention. Aroma is a mix of wheat with some sweetness also quite apparent. Taste is very sweet at first and wheat can also be noticed afterward. There seems to be some spices even though the label mentioned that no spices were used during brewing, Not the best tripel I had the chance of drinking but still a pretty good example of the style.
