Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2004
The beer after its extraction from the 330ml stubby brown bottle sets in the glass a muzzy orange color with a Bunyanesque creamy light tan head, as it, slowly dissintagrates the lace forms a thick blanket to obfuscate the glass. Nose is over ripe fruit, lots of malt, fresh and crisp to the senses, start is ambrosial with a decent malt presence, the top light to moderate in feel. Finish is authoritarian in its acidity, the hops spicy and pleasing to the palate, quite dry and some somewhat tart aftertaste a nice drinking beer has a nice bit of tummy warming.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet yeasty with hints of spices. The flavor is sweet and way too yeasty.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2004
Deep yellow color with a beige head. The taste is a slight sweet fruityness and a complex pattern of malty fruityness. Has some yeast.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
Fresh and fruity aroma with hints of yeast. Dark yellow or amber colour. Small head. Dry and strong combination of alcohol and yeast in flavour.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
Golden coloured. Fruity aroma with yeasty notes. Very sweet and quite yeasty flavour. Rather short finish.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2004
Big frothy head, chunks of yeast floating. Malty aroma with citrus. Citric, sweetish flavor, malty with some hopbitterness. Just a hint of raspberry. Not a great quality beer, but very pleasant indeed.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2004
Six different grains eh? Although there is something a little different I can't quite describe, this is another one of those Belgian gold coloured ales that hide the alcohol content very effectively. Quite spicy throughout, bittersweet finish. Pretty nice stuff. Bottled.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Cloudy golden color; creamy head. A real Grand Cru, with a strong malty and spicy aroma, dry; light fruitness developing later. High carbonation, but very smooth, again with malt and spices. Pretty short final.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2003
Nice aroma, sweet, spicy, citrus and yeasty. Cloudy, yellow coloured. Nice lacing. Taste is sweet, bitter, bit cheesy, yeasty and some citrus. Pleasant full palate. Good brew!

Eirikur (369) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - AUG 23, 2003
Very nice head. A little yeasty. It is citrus sour and the hops are shining here. Nice golden colour. A little metallic aftertaste. Fine beer though.
