750ml corked bottle shared by suzygreenberg. Pours a cloudy yellow straw color with a nice thick and lively white head that leaves a great lace as it drinks down. Sweet peppery apple nose with a touch of some other spices in there. Sharp carbonation and slightly bitter on the palate with great honey sweetness and some earthy floral hints. I think that this bottle had a bit of age on it and it was still great, but I would certainly like to try a ’younger’ bottle of this. Thanks for sharing this one Ben!

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Sampled during MN Gathering II in Maplewood and shared by MatSciGuy. From a 750 ml wine bottle pours a hazy golden blonde brew with plenty of white head that has great retention and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapple, apricots, some golden grain malt, flowery hops and dry herbs. Taste is medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of pineapple, tangerines, apricots, white bread malt and a hint of green mint. Finish has a light mint and clove spice aftertaste that made this one stand out. Thanks Levi for sharing this terrific ale.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Sample enjoyed at Skyview tasting. Nice yellow pour with aroma of apricot and papaya. Flavor was pleasantly yeasty, bitter and finished a little dry. A very good brew. 3/2/13 Rerate. Less yeast, more light hay and dry lemon flavors. Really enjoyed this more than I remembered.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Thanks Levi. Hazy yellow pour with a foamy off white head. Nice lacing. Spices, pineapple and hops on the nose. The spices and light fruits come out a bit more in the flavor along with some dryness.

tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Sampled at Skyview’s tavern. Certainly the first thing I noticed with this beer was the interesting shape of the bottle. Light golden pour. Aroma of pear, apricot, citrus, bread, and flowery hops. Finish was slightly dry. A pretty decent and well crafted brew. Enjoyable!

Bottle thanks to Bert from Stateline. Poured a light golden/ yellow color, with big old cream head. It was very carbonated. Aroma was mint and hops. Taste was earthy, citrus, and caramel. Finished clean and drinkable. Thanks again Sloth.

TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2008
750 ml bottle, 2007. Pours a misty golden brown. Not paying attention this shot up a big whipped cream head that faded with patchwork lace. Nose is pastry dough, rose water, cut grass and light pepper. Tingly, slick mouthfeel that’s syrupy and resiny but balanced and softened. Taste is lemon candy, caramel, green apple, spearmint, pink grapefruit and white pepper. What a wonderful hop melange.

Large white head, good retention and lace. Lightly hazy gold color. Nose is spicey, floral and grassy, too much so for me. Body is lightly medium, overly carbonated and somewhat oily. Alot of grassy, floral hop flavors with a lightly sweet malt backing, fairly dry and spicey. Dry grassy finish with a light breadyness. Damn AmBelgique IIPAs, dont get it. Thanks cletus!
