Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a mild, white head. Notes of malt, caramel and spices in the nose. Flavor is sweet with more caramel, along with some yeast and light spices. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet with some more maltiness. Decent.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2010
Ceramic/stone bottle: Had this one a while ago and really enjoyed it. Off white foamy head with a light hazy, dark yellow to orange body. Smell lots of fruit (lemon, orange, banana), some light spices, hints of wheat, yeast and bread. Taste is a pretty fresh, bitter and sweet mix of: fruits, hops, sweets, spices, yeast, honey, wheat and hint of malts.

Dark cloudy honey brown color with no head or carbonation. Very spicy and yeasty with a honey sweetness and some doughy malt. Very tasty but I would have preferred maybe a bit of carbonation.

DKS4011 (8) - Black Earth, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2010 does not count
To be honest, I homebrew so I was first drawn to this beer by the nifty bottle. I do enjoy Belgian beers though and this one did not disappoint. However, for a Belgian, it was on the lower end of the spectrum. For an overall beer it still ranks on the upper end of the spectrum. Mine was very smooth with almost no carbonation (almost like a Cask pour), very cloudy and strong yeast overtone.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Thanks superdave! Bottle pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is light fruit and yeast. Flavor is sweet with honey, cracker, and some paper. Body is creamy and soft with a dry finish. Not too shabby.

DialSquare (2497) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Big ceramic bottle from Liquor Loft. Yellow pour with visible carbonation and a large bright white head. Lemon, spice and yeast aroma. Taste is bready yeast and light pepper. Nice creamy medium texture. Finishes clean and slightly dry. Drinkable - but not so complex.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Pours a hazy copper with a lasting white head. Smells of sweet malt, fruity, gassy. Tastes of light spice, honey, grassy. Enjoyable.

Jow (2005) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Picked up a bottle from Mint in Tarrytown while walking home. Pours a dirty yellow with a dish soap 2 finger head that quickly dissapates. Tastes is of wheat, bannana, a little clove and some doughyness. Overall not bad but not totally exciting but fine way to kick off memorial day weekend.
