Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2005
Pours with a golden body with some floaters, topped by a medium thick, white head with some lacing. It’s slighlty sweet yet a touch sour with a lemony note. Not much else. Medium bodied and dry.

Poursa golden hue with a light white head. Aromas of wheat, light spice, a light clove/honey note with a light muskiness. Flavors of lemon, honey, wheat, spice with a lingering sweet/sour finish. Lemonade like flavor and tartness.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Another unique beer from Teo Musso Matterino. Apparently brewed with "Kamut" - a grain found in the graves of the Pharaohs! Added cane sugarjuice and a colour like the desert of Namibia! Well, Teo you certainly are a good storyteller. Fully golden, unfiltered, not much head. Strangely spiced, almost peppery aroma - not easily defined. Is it the kamut? An underlying sweetness and just a hint of hops. Very fascinating. 181104

Choos (604) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2005
Aroma: hop with some stone fruit and a very mild hint of candy. Appearance: cloudy orange/brown with a smallish short lasting head. Flavour: sharp hop, some malt and a little bit of fruit and noticeable alcohol. Palate: thin with a lasting hop and almost tart fruit aftertaste.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2005
Pours slightly hazy orange with a foamy snow white head. Rather artificial and sharp flavor of yeast with fruity notes. Flavor of citrus, orange and apricot with hints of spices and cinnammon. Touch of infection!?

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
(750 ml bottle: $13.99 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Strong notes of spice (most notably, coriander and ginger?) and lemon are the dominant force in both the aroma and flavor of this beer, which along with the zesty carbonation, contribute to a pleasant, refreshing and clean mouthfeel. It’s somewhat sweet and quite fruity, but at the same time, fairly tart. The malt profile is pretty much in the background, something you really have to focus on to pick out, and seems to resemble a light wheat beer. Medium in body with a long-lasting finish. The color of this beer is bright orange, like dried apricots. The beer is cloudy with thousands of dark specs suspended in the liquid, with the heavier particles falling out of suspension. The initially fizzy, soda-like off-white head dissipates fairly rapidly to a thin, bubbly layer, and leaves no lacing on the glass. Not the kind of beer I’d drink often, but it’s a nice departure from "traditional" beer.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 Hmmm. Didn’t know what to think before I had it and didn’t know after. Poured a hazy yellow. Flavors and aroma were tart and citusy. Some lemon. Light bodied and finish dry. (2.4) Re-rate 7/2/06 Still hazy yellow. The aroma was lightly sweet and malty with ctirusy fruit notes. Malty and fruity flavor with a hint of yeasty funk. More palatable this time. I don’t know how often this product turns over. Maybe the first bottle was bad or maybe my tastes have changed. Hmmm

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Spicy aroma. Highly carbonated. Tart sour flavor. Not real crazy about this one.

Sweet and fruity aroma. Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Sour and sweet, spicy and fizzy.

Lunkie (1404) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2005
Malt hoppy sweet aroma. Coloudy amber colour with reasonable head. Sweet malt spicy flavour. Fizzy palate.
