OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
12oz bottle pours blonde slightly cloudy wtih a short offwhite creamy head that stays pretty well and laces some on the trappist glass. Aromas of funk, yeast, sweat socks, and a little lemon. Flavor is quite funky too. Yeast, cookie dough, lemon, apple, and some musty flavor too. Palate is pretty smooth and light with not too much carbonation. Soft mouthfeel.

IndianaRed (3845) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle pours a slightly hazy, light yellow with a massively thick and dense brightwhite head. Several minutes later and it was still full and merangue-like. Amazing. Aromas mainly of light Belgian yeast notes and some lemon or orange citrusy bits as well. Flavor was similar, but ligheter and a bit of apples and apricots. Soft palate with moderate carbonation. Nice slightly bitter trailer.

[12oz Bottle Bottlworks] A great flavor of a light white ale. This had a wonderful flavor and a hint of fruitness this was a truly awesome belgian ale.

From the bottle thanks to batkins. Pours a light gold with a fizzy white head. Apricot fruitiness with a nice carbonation that really gave it a nice spicing in the finsih. Crisp and mild dry finish.

Pours a nice yellow, wispy color. Nice yeasty and spicey aroma. Crisp taste, hides the 7.5% very well. Not bad at all.

33cl. Pours nearly-clear golden/light amber. Huge white bubbly head that wanders away pretty quickly. Big green apple/cherry nose with decent wild funk afoot as well. Lots of yeasty sediment; not much in the way of rising carb. Crisp attack and nicely defined flavor throughout the palate--more of those green apples and cherries. A subdued whisper of herbal hop at the finish. Very carefully organized, refreshing, and drinkable beer.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2006
This beer pours a straw colored yellow with a thick fluffy head and good lacing with active carbonation and visible floaties. The aroma is barnyardy leather with hints of acetone, cloves and cilantro. Mouthfeel is somewhat funky, almost cheese-like, Lemon, bread and leather are the dominant flavors with hay and wheat grass comprising the rest. Those floaties definitely do their job. Somewhat tart and heavily carbonation. Good mouthfeel, betters as it warms, Orange perhaps as well?

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2006
From 750mL Bottle. Pours a ripe, transparent banana skin yellow with a tall, soapy white head. Aromas of wheat and southern corn bread waft from beneath the banana yeasty spice. A touch of lightly sour funk and clove spice builds on the yeasty dimensions. Medium bodied, richly carbonated mouthfeel initially, but the finish is a little bit thin. Loads of yeast pile up on the tongue, along with some wheaty flavors and a touch of sour lemon. Almost a bit of a metallic flavor coming out in the finish. Very yeasty and a bit grainy overall; nice spiciness, but could use a bit more hop bitterness for balance and extra character.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Flaxen appearance with a foamy head and stringy lace. Dry and dusty with some grassy hopes. Sour citrus in the form of lemons. Doughy and yeasty notes as well. The citrus comes out more abundantly in the flavors. Floral hops and there is a little bit of heat as the alcohol comes out. The palate is rather dusty with a dry bite at the tail.
