Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Slightly sweet aroma, hints of spice, and a touch of green apple tartness. Pours a clear amber with a cap of tight white head. Touch of tartness, sweeter then I expected. Very drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

On tap poured a hazy orange with a small lasting light amber head. Aromas of carmel, spice and honey. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of spice, straw, light carmel and light honey with a smooth dry lingering spice finish.

Bottle.
Pours a beautiful, deep amber with a head of white that leaves intricate lacing around the glass. Aroma is bit off, with a weird hint of tangerine nut wine- or something like that. Old-tasting blend of musty air, wood, and old bourbon with Sprite. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but I don’t think I’ll drink more of this.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Hazy copper-orange, thin off-white head. Moderate sweet Belgain ale aroma, slight caramel notes. Sweet grain taste, mild caramel, light spice. Decent, no real distinct flavors aside from malt sweetness.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish slightly off-white head. Aroma of grass, fresh malt and a good dose of hops. Medium-bodied; Sharp fresh grassy hops taste strong along with some malt and a bit of perfumey scents. Aftertaste shows a bit more complexity with coriander seed and a bit of spice, but mostly malt. Overall, a good strong flavoured beer that shows well, especially in the summer! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Sam’s Warehouse Liquor in Oklahoma City, OK on 13-February-2008, drunk after my first round of golf ever on 07-August-2008.

Having had a few Krebs’ beers (including Texas Sux), this one surprised me. Not great, but nice. It had a hazy amber body with a quickly fading, slender head. The aroma was yeasty, had some toffee, a quiet spiciness, citrus fruit, and dried grasses. The is a bit sweeter than the nose promised, seems like a dollop of honey was added, and there’s a light sourness near the finish. Decent.

sample at DLD - the bottle says Kreb’s Biere de Garde. It pours hazy light amber with a yeasty, malty aroma. The flavor is of caramel malt and has some good fruit accents. Yeasty and sweet, it’s medium bodied and easy drinking. While not outstanding, it’s enjoyable. Thanks to whoever brought this rare brew.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle from soonah. Thanks! Pours a very orange and cloudy with a thin and quickly dissipating head. Aroma is yeast and citrus with maybe a little bit of grass thrown in. None of the maltiness this pretends to have in the aroma. But it looks malty! We’ll see shortly! Taste is caramel, cereal and honey. Sweet with a sour balance. Light and lively. Something seems to be a bit off in the body but overall a very nice beer.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Bomber. Pours clear dark amber with an off-white head. Light body and carbonation. Clean, light toffee and hay taste. Crisp, refreshing and lightly lemony finish. A tip of the hat to Krebs, OK!

22. Clear dark ruddy amber with a surging, fizzy whitish head. Light sugary nose. Medium fizzy body. Light grass and sugary mid-palate. Hay and lemon finish.
