2003 Bottle thanks to Beerslayer. Hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Funky, yeasty aroma with some fruits and spices(coriander?) Lightly sweet flavor with just a touch of tartness. Fruity finish.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle courtesy of Matta. Pours dark dirty orange. Highly carbonated. Aroma is very yeasty with some dark fruits. Taste the smae with some raisin more evident in the finish. Finishes a little dry with a strange smoky woodsy aftertaste.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle conditioned, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Amber gold, thin off white head and moderate condition. Sweet butterscotch and caramle in the nose with some slight yeasty fruitiness. Butterscotch and caramel maltiness dominate in the mouth and linger into the finish along with a gentle bitterness.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Corked bottle
Beautiful copper color; huge head. Very nice aroma, dry, malty, mature apples and red grapes. Good body, some malt, a peculiar woody astringency. Correct final.
Below my expectations…

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2005
Malty, herbal aroma and flavor. Licorice and coreander, I guess. Just a bit of salt and pepper. Peardrups. Full bodied. Bitter aftertaste, somewhat alcoholic. Good beer.

Bottle from Styles via Matta. The cork just about blew my hand off when opening. This is a well carbonated beer. Slightly sourish, farmy aroma. Spicey and tart flavors. Hard to cut through all of the carbonation. Better after sitting a good long time.

GABF, at the flat of a gracious host (whose name I can’t remember). The beer was much better than it smelled. My nose was assaulted by a yeasty vinegar aroma that almost made me not want to try it, and definitely made me not take more. Noticably acidic, but not overly so. Clear gold-orange in the glass, leaving dense lacing on the side of the glass. Pear, pineapple, malt, and mellow cob webs on the flavor. Finish was soft and a little dry, which was nice.

This is such a crazy brewery....a couple of Belgian teachers brewing wonderful beer in their garage, I know that had my teachers done the same my school experience most likely would have been more enjoyable. This seemeed to run the gauntlet of extremes: very subtle aroma, wonderful estery character with hints of plum, apple, and banana; flavor was intensely yeasty and a touch tart; palate was a bit unenjoyable due to the tighty packed carbonation and cutting alchohol. I think there was a hint of funkiness here which may be a sign that this bottle was not kept in the best conditions, but overall it was a nice beer.

New Year’s Eve, 12/31/2004. I asked for a Blaugies for Christmas, and Santa said "You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!!!" Of course he’s right, but I like to live dangerously, and I cannot resist the charm of Blaugies. "Fire in the hole!" as the cage is released - I hardly have it off the bottle and POP!- the cork goes flying who knows where. We should’ve saved this for midnight, but we couldn’t wait any longer. Bright deep hazy gold, thick fluffy head, great lacing. Spicy sweet, malty, medium bodied. This, to me, just has a real "handmade" feel to it - I’m not sure why, maybe it’s that light funky sourness and hint of the wild outdoors in the aroma. Happy New Beer!

Cloudy, copper body. Yeasty, spicy aroma with some floral notes, tripelesque aroma. Sweet malt body with strong sugary flavors, some light lemon and citrus flavor is present as well. Spicy mouthfeel, notes of cinnamon, a nice complex malt body overall. Clean finish, still very sweet and sugary but nicely balanced. Lightly sour.
