tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Dry and grainy with plenty of musky honey, earth, herbal floral and grassy notes along with some tart citrus character. Very slight haze to the bubbly blonde body topped by an enormously fizzy and long lasting bright white head that laces well. Grainy, biscuity, cereal malts are joined by a floral, earthy, musty flavour along with a honey-like sweetness cut by a fairly assertive hop bitterness in the finish. Some notes of wheat are also apparent. Alcohol is surprisingly notable for only 8% but it works very nicely. Medium body is lifted up by strong carbonation that gives way to a soft, doughy texture. Somehow manages to feel quite dry. Stemmed glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB 01-Jun-08, Bièropholie, Feb-05).

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Pours a hazed, tawny yellow color with full arctic white froth that clings like a scapegoat cought in a crossfire. Medium nectar w/ a unique muscato grape nose. Flavors remind me of an aged Alsacian dry Riesling. Slight earthy tropshire yet big on the fruit. Starts tart and finishes fruity. Slight methane. The finish is dry. A complex brew no doubt. It tastes similar to DFH’s Midas Touch.

rederic (3250) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2006
Cloudy pale yellow color, at the opening of the swing-top bottle, an explosion of foam went out, and formed a fluffy white head, yeasty, pale malt, citrus floral hops, fruity note of grapefruit in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet pale malt, an alcoholic strength feeling, notes of candied pineapple, with a citrus fruit fruitiness, hint of floral hops, leading towards a sweet alcoholic accent, and showing a subtle bitterness in the finish.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Hazy golden color with a rather large white head. Very perfumey nose with hints of dates and pear. The flavor of this beer is extremely sweet and alcoholic with hints of banana. It’s a little to syrupy for my taste. Not recommended.

Bouteille de 330 ml avec bouchon de céramique obtenue via Importations Privées Bièropholie. Arôme: Odeur de de pommes et d’épices.

Saveur: Goût fruité et épicés avec une légère touche d’alcool. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture liquoreuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #437)

Bon Secours Blonde De Noel. Looks and smells like cider (sugar, apple). Strong taste with alcohol (even more in the aftertaste) and sweet apfel korn. Maybe I over rated the flavor but I like beers that have a lot of taste.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Hazy golden hue with a moderate, sudsy, receding white head. Aroma is of sweet pale malt, honey, cooked apples, and a touch of bubble gum. Very sweet, underattenuated malt flavor with prominent honey tones. Tasty in a puerile way. The most interesting aspect is some floral notes. Mouthfeel is viscous and honey-like as expected. This is a sweet candy beer.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy sparkling yellow with persistant white head. Lemony spice aroma. Not overly sweet with a little bit of hop in the finish. Good stuff.

Clear deep yellow with a large head. Aroma is full, malty and alcoholic which is carried through into the sweetish taste.
