aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 13, 2005
Also a touch of bret initially. Big roasty and herbal spice nose. Toasted caramel nut bread and white pepper upfront, probably grains of paradise. Mild dark fruits and toffee follow thru. Very good lingering slightly sour finish.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2005
2003 bottle. very funky musty sweat and horseblanket aroma. very cloudy dark tan/straw colored body. off-white head that diminishes quickly. high carbonation. sour flavor, slightly tangy. dryish aftertaste. alcohol well hidden for a high octane saison, since hiding heat in these fragile flavors would normally be like a wildebeast in an open field. thanks Beerslayer!

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 (3800) - 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 (19119) - 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 (12350) - 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.
