OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2004
Hazy honey apricot with a small short lasting light beige head. Medium sweet cider foral honeysuckle and very faint hint of bootpolish and plastic aroma. Becomes even more peachy and cide rlike as it warms. Medium tongue tingling spicey body. Light citric cidery sour with medium honey and grainy malt start. Yeah I definitely get that prickly pepperlike spicey bit especially in the middle. Light stalish apple sour and dry bitter finish.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours a hazy, orange-copper color. It is well carbonated, which holds up a large fluffy light tan head. The aroma is reminiscent of a fresh cut crisp apple, plus I get notes of orange, ginger, a bready yeastiness, and an earthiness. The taste is lightly sweet up front, but finishes with a drying acidity that is quite pleasant. The carbonation is nice and prickly as the beer flows through my mouth.

The acidity and sweetness really accentuate the fresh apple character of this beer. Also the acidity almost seems to have a tamarind character to it. This is quite tasty, and has an herbal quality to it that only adds to the beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Hazy orange with vigorous white head. Floral aroma. Flavor is yeasty with spice, I thought it had a distinct note of black pepper.

Orange Coloring. White Head..Frothy. This is Definitly a Curious Beer. Egyptian Recipe...Some Herbal and Spice.. PLenty of Yeast in the Bottle. It Wasn’t Bad But Not My Favorite.

badgerben (4510) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Pours a dark gold color with a solid head and lots of yeast floating around. Aroma is full of flowers and oranges. The taste is quite herbal with some spice mixed in. Corriander. Tasty, but I have other Traditional ales higher on my list.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Murky orange color with nice head that poured with chunks of yeastiness. Head didn’t stick around too long. Aromas of ginger, pepper and musty earthiness. Taste is light muscat grapes, bananas, coriander and pepper. Mouthfeel is lively with a medium body. Finish is smooth and lasting.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2004
Yeah Eric...I agree...this beer rocks!!! Underarrated for sure!! Deep murky amber ale, fizzy white head. Light notes of spiced pear, red apple, fresh bread, and corriander. Good balance even with the hops being quite subtle, yet showing a tanginess that reminds me off a cross between a lambic and a hefeweizen. Medium bodied for the style, fizzy carbonation, dry finish. A "must try" at least once. It’s interesting to say the least...

hopscotch (9737) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2004
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky, amber ale with a medium-sized, white, fizzy head. Very good retention. The nose is light, but layered nicely with notes of citrus fruit, pear, light cinnamon, light coriander and red apple. The well-balanced flavor is tart and tangy. The hops are subtle and the alcohol is well-hidden. Medium-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Short, bone-dry finish. World class beer... underrated!
