rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2003
Bottled. Yellow-ish in colour. Notes of banana, bitter orange and tit-bits in both aroma and flavour. Roasted and sweetish. Short but pleasant finish.

Ungstrup (32202) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2003
The aroma is sweet, malty with strong notes of the yeast. The color is golden and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is sweet malty with nice yeast notes. A good beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Golden and very hazy with large white foamy head. Awesome fruity aroma of sweet pineapples, apricot, pears and lemon. Nice!!! Fruity and smooth flavour of orange, sweet citrus, pineapples with some yeast. Alcohol is very well-hidden. Long fruity finish. This one will kill you...maybe not.

RichardGretton (4525) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2003
Dark amber biere with a biere de garde style head, and a sweet syrup like aroma. A very syrupy flavour similar to that of a barley wine. A nice malty barley wine style beer.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Very hazy, light golden brew. Tons of yeast particles floating about. Medium-sized, creamy, white head mostly diminishes. Decent lacing. Smells of apricot and candy sugar. White bread and green apple. Caramel, butterscotch and brewer's yeast. The flavor is very malty, rich and sweet up front. Very astringent and moderately bitter taste on the backside. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, bitter-sweet finish.

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2003
Nice spicy, grain aroma. Golden with a smallish head. The malt body is slightly fruity and sweet and a touch thin to be honest especially considering the alcohol level. Silent but deadly!

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Nice pale amber color, with a short lived head. Spicy fruit flavor, mildly sweet, and better than any other french beer Ive had.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAY 17, 2003
Pale golden colour with a good head that lasts just for a minute. Strong fruity aroma (peach and apricot). The flavour is too sweet (honey) with strong fruity traces (apple, orange peels and peach). The finish is not enough bitter. Initially pleasant, this beer is quite unbalanced and becomes quite boring as it warms...

Oakes (14101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
Golden. Honeyish, sweet. Touch of thyme-like herbaceousness. Peachy notes.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2003
Bright amber. Sweet, candyish malt nose. Nice hoppiness in the body, sweet with organic notes and a touch of alcohol. I don't know, I don't like knocking a beer with this reputation, but nothing admirable stood out in my sample.
