joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours a hazy golden color. Slightly sour nose with hints of a funky earthy aroma. The flavor is slightly off and gives a biscuity meets funky earthy flavor, with a hint of malty sweetness. An ok beer, but I wouldn;t buy it.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2007
The body is a hazy light ambered toppede with a thick, well sustained solid head that does some fine lacing. The aroma is sweet and yeasty backed by scents of roses, citrus and dark fruits, honey, and hot spices. It has a complex merging of flavors, liberally spiced, and has a wheaty tartness to wrap it up. Dry finish. Refreshing and tasty.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Poured a hazy orange with chunky yeast floaties. The aroma was sweet with notes of flowers, spicey cracked pepper, orange skin, toast, and a hint of honey. Decent complexity. The flavor was sweet and almost ginger ale like. Spicey with a wet finish.

jimhilt (2400) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Pours a three-finger smooth off-white head that barely fades leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color, ton of yeast settles to bottom. Yeasty/citrusy nose. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Starts tart maybe an apple flavor, hard to pin down, finish is sour. Good bottle to split with your beer partner. Pricey - $16.99 for a 1L bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
One big bottle, split with the spouse. Medium orangish color, nice head. Aroma a nice mix of floral, yeast, and dark fruits, quite complex. The flavor is highly intricate, much like the nose, with a definite thick floral bouquet thing going on, with a honey note coming through as well. Just a touch reminiscent of the Avery Saison. A bit of spice on the end cleans things up at the finish. I rather liked it, although it wasn’t an easy drinker by any means due to the complexity I was finding.

sloth (2469) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Small white head, decent lace. Clear gold color. Spicey nose, faint citrus, light floral notes as well as a dill pickley aroma. Strange. Body is light with an aggressive carbonation, with a neat tartness that grows as you consume this 1 litre bottle by yerself (thanks Brian!) in one sitting. Light spice flavors, peppery, ginger, flowery, perfumey, yeasty and citrusy. What a conglomeration of flavors! Finish is dry, tart. An easy drinkin little brew. Kinda grows on ya after awhile, by yourself, alone, with a 1 litre bottle. Thanks goodness for the low ABV.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Yellow body with white head. Nose had trace floral, spice and sweet. Taste was spices, complex and hard for me to nail down. Tasted like flowers? Weird, in a good way.

GregClow (2881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Honey-golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is very floral - lots of rose, clover and honey. Flavour is light, with similar floral notes to the flavour but more subdued. Fairly simple, but a nice & unique beer.

eaglefan538 (2886) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Poured a golden color with hints of amber, thin initial head, and weak lacing. The aroma was wheaty, floral, spicy (ginger?). The flavor was wheaty, dry, spiced with some pepper and light ginger, pretty odd spicing going on, I liked Berts live "dill pickle" descriptor. Mouthfeel was dry and thin, somewhat acidic. A light but not so enjoyable beer. Good thing this was only 3.8%, as Bert had to down more than half of this on his own after I took off. Thanks, Bert!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2006
One of the funnest brew of the tasting. Hazed amber color with a moderate white head. Funky aromas with lavender, spice, cinnamon, and hints of brett. Mildly citric in the flavor, with light lemon grove and wild flowers fields in the background. Equally as complex as pannepot, but the flavors and aroma, to me, where much more enjoyable.
