Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2008
Dark yellow colored with little white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with peachy and raisinny notes, mild alcohol also comes up. Medium bodied, crispy palate. Flavor is also sweet with same raisins, aftertaste has mild alcohol with still lasting raisins. Not the traditional BSA, still ok brew.

ZiggyG (131) - Gladstone, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours bright gold with a ring of foam around the edge. Lots of tan sediment. Nose is pure sweetness, doughy sugared plums. Taste is surprisingly thin. sugary raisins up front. Light to medium body. Medium carb. Turns acrid in the back of the throat. Overly sweet - no balance. I can’t finish it, its aweful.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 28, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy golden, slightly green? beer with a white head. The nose is of coconut, thyme, cinnamon, litchi, orange, vanilla and peach accompanied by malt and yeast - a wonderfully fruity and spicy aroma. Lots of thyme and fruit showing up in the taste. Nice lacing. Slightly peppery. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Medium bodied. Some vitamin tablets, litchi and mango appearing. Amazing peppery finish with a hint of cinnamon.

Bottle. Hazy deep golden with a big offwhite head. Fruity aroma, some prunes. Nice raisins and even hints of nutty flavours. Fluffy mouthfeel. Different and enjoyable.

BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tart! Apricot spice aroma. Not much in the appearance category. Flavor is very enjoyably tart, notes of grapes. I want one more bottle, very interesting beer.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle. Dry, fruity aroma. Hazy orange tinged golden color with a white head that flattened quickly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Slightly sourish dry fruit flavor with some offsetting sweet malt. Possibly some floral hop. The finish is almost dry, and a bit woody. Some citrus develops. Very good ale.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured a hazy golden with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate tart fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium body, thick particles wth lively carbonation. Medium balanced fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish with a very small alcohol tone. Good brew.

mabel (6539) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
[581-20070906] 330mL (w/ jerc). Apricot spice aroma with strong sweet pine resin and wood notes. Cloudy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some bits floating at the bottom. Flavour is sweet pine resin and burnt wood, some floral, something like ginger and a smoky background. Medium body has some astringency. Very interesting aromatic characteristics, alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming -- certainly shows shades of snowy yeti slopes.
