Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 12, 2008
On tap at Coles
Appearance: Amber , cloudy orange ale with light creamy top.
Nose: Light , sweet caramel nose. Faint hint of hops, mineral feel with faint yard like touches. Spiced finish.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied. Malty walls with citric , slightly sour intum. Plums, yams, fruity feel. Different, interesting to some concept. To me was lacking direction as to what wanted to accomplish.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo, NY. Pours a witish/ hefe cloudy yellow. Spicy aroma of fruit (Bananas, citrusy fruits) cloves, Belgian yeatiness. Taste is hefe like with Belgian yeastiness. Like alcohol presence in the end. Tastes somewhat similar to Saxo. Pretty good

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Objectively speaking: Authentic Belgian-style ale that was not as satisfying as anticipated.
I like: Well-integrated alcohol. Gentle wheatiness. Soft palate, reminiscent of a tripel all throughout with its pleasant noble hop background.
I dislike: Totally clear body. Smallish white ring. Heavy malt foundations fail to deliver the desired crispiness, this rapidly feels a bit heavy and the yeast heads towards banana purée territory, but luckily, the grassy, hay-like hops come into rescue to avoid excessive sweetness.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Draft @ redlight reflight. Pours a hazy blonde with a smallish white head, leaves a little lacing on the glass. On the nose coriander, candi sugar, cloves and bready yeast. In flavor this is sweet with a spicy/herbal hop and coriander presence. The sweetness is a little cloying, could use a little more lift in the mouthfeel as it ended up on the verge of being too heavy.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2008
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy golden, creamy head. Almondy fruity nose. Soft and caramelly. Medium sweet with gentle, rounded mouthfeel. Delicious seemless flavour of custard, estery bubblegum and marzipan. Mildly warming.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Tap at Cloverleaf Tavern. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a thin lasting head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy phenolic with light banana belgian esters- somewhat reminded me of a cross between a choufe and the brooklyn one- I wonder if this is a fucked up batch that wasnt quite what they wanted? Either way it was very good though. Good ligth bubblegum phenolic flavors, light vanilla hints, clove and low ont eh banana ester in the flavor- nice fresh doughy malts all around and finishes very clean and dry with a light phenolic bubblegummy aftertaste. I liked this one.

level4 (25) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2008
On tap at Stirling Hotel. Cloudy orange with small head. Aroma is fruit and sugar and minor funk. Thicker and harder to drink that it looks. Taste was yeast and citrus and sugar. Taste was confusing and not well balanced. It was under carbonated as well. Never again.
