HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, tupalev, jerc, DougShoemaker and mds - thanks, R!. Poured cloudy orange with a small white head, plenty of sludge at the bottom of the glass. Aroma is quite peppery and sour, orange-lemon-pineapple juice, tart cider - gets even more sour on warming. Taste follows nose, juicier, quite tart and peppery. Mouthfeel acidic and lively - very interesting, very drinkable sharp lightly sour ale. Thanks "R!

This was a real nice beer, fully drinkable at 6.8 and refreshing. Had it on tap in a nice 2 liter "tube" with another. I’ll take any trad ale I can drink by the liter.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Interesting aroma, a light, sweet malt, yeasty, with a gingery, chamomile laden aroma having a slight citric tartness. An okay pour, hazy pale orange with plenty of suspended particles and a fizzy, cream colored head. The flavor is simpler than the smell, malt heavy with oranges and a swelling of the spices near the end. It’s got an abrupt finish, leaving only a bit of orange zest tartness in the mouth. I’d do it again.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Pours an amber/orange color with a medium sized tan cap that leaves minimal lacing. Nose of medium sweet malts, banannas and dark fruits. Body is medium, palate is lightly oily. Mildly sweet malt flavors, dark fruits, fig, a hint of raisin and bananna plus a nice underlying spiceyness. Finish is almost dry, fruity. Nice. A tad pricey though.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle. Apricot in the aroma, for sure. Aroma doesn’t really grab you i have to say, but its pleasant. Palate is sweet, and a touch sticky. Apricot and then pepper and spices, a little bit estery in the aftertaste, with touches of banana and mandarin, and the apricot still remains. Quite good, but i was hoping for better.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2005
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Rerate Pick up a lot more spiciness this time around , ginger and saffron - overall - same rating. Original 3.5 Marcello’s Wine Market - Baton Rouge, La. - 750 ml bottle. Pours a murky light orange with absolutely no head. Aroma has a fruity quality to it - some pears, peaches and nectarines, quite pleasant. Flavor a little bit sweet and a little bit sour. Odd fruitiness to it - kind of reminds me of kiwis with a back end of sour grapes. Slighlty refreshing, reminds me somewhat of DFH Old Midas with its grape leaves things going. Mouthfeel is slightly spritzy and slighlty thick. Very decent, and odd.

Dorqui (2104) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 15, 2005
Dense and adherent foam, optimal persistence. Orange clearly color, much torbid and hazy; discreet fizz. Spiced and sour scent, lightly spicy. Smooth and enough dry taste. Slightly prickly and drinkable. Bland, difficult alcoholic perception. Soft end with notes of exotic fruit.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Poured golden with a fizzy white head. Light citrusy aroma. Acidic citrusy taste to start, similar to a toned-down lambic. Eventually the beer mellows and leaves a clean, pleasant finish. Very refreshing.
