DarkElf (3038) - 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

An unclear orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is spicy and fruity with oranges standing out. The flavor is sweet and quite spicy dry with coriander standing out.

madsberg (10684) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
Bottled: Unclear orange coloured. Yeast, fruit, light sourness in the aroma. Reminds a bit of a abbey tripel. Flavour is sweet and fruity with a light sourness in the background. Light spiced. Is quite thin bodied. Dry in the end.

Nora is a unique brew inspired to ancient egyptian recipes; it makes use of egyptian "kamut" grain, sugar cane extract (guarap) and almost no hops. At a first glance, it doesnt’t look or smell very different from a wheat ale. Light orange hazy color; fizzy but short-lived head. Aroma is mostly citric, with yeast and ginger. Good balance between sweetness, and tartiness. Spicy, dry and pungent finish.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Massively fruity aroma, lightly sweet and citric with notes of freshly-squeezed orange juice, melon, pear, tangerine, white grape, honey, faintly clovey yeast esters, flowers and a lush background of green herbs and exotic spices. Light golden orange color, thoroughly hazy and cloudy with lots of fine dusty particulates and a fine, slight head. Flavor profile is sweet, fruity and lightly tart, citric and spicy with hints of orange, turbinado sugar and lemongrass, with an interesting but somewhat unfamiliar spicy/herbal quality throughout. Finish is tangy and juicy. Mouthfeel is effervescent and thin, body is medium. Very unique ale.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2004
I’m not gettin much out of the aroma on this, its slightly malty leafy/grassy smell with a hint of lemon. If it hat a touch of sweetness, I would think it a wit. However it does have a nice slightly hazy yellow with a decent head on top. Flavor is much more revealing. It has a good bitterness to it that gets to you right off the bat, then there is a slight bit of spice to it and a very deep complex to it. After a few sips some peach and banaa notes come through a bit stronger. A fine brew that gets better and better after each sip.
