douglas88 (5939) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2010
750 ml bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A sweet funky oranges aroma. The flavor is basically a rich Belgian funky ale, some oranges, sweet and very dry. Nice.

(750ml bottle batch 4-25 bottled 5-26) Light orange. Bubblegum, sweet orange. Taste is more balanced, more malt and yeast notes. A good bit of alcohol in the manner of a tripel.

chaz01 (190) - Miamisburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2010
750ml bottle courtesy of trade with thirdeye11 (thanks Chad!) poured into a Belgian tulip glass. Murky amber color that pours with a fizzy white head that quickly goes away. Alcohol notes with a bit of a fruity citrus-like character. Thereís a somewhat waxy note to this as well thatís distracts from the beer. A little mustiness, with a grassy, earthy taste to it along with some Belgian yeast flavors. Medium to full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. Definitely drinkable, but for the style I would expect a little better. However, from what iíve read, looking forward to trying some of the otherís in the series.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2010
(750ml bottle, batch 4-25, bottled 5-26) Pours a clear yellow body with a moderate white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, earthiness, green raisins, and grass. Flavor of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, grass, and light oxidation with a chalky mouthfeel and dry finish.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2010
(750ml bottle batch 4-25 bottled 5-26) clear orange-golden with very few visible bubbles. Nose of funk, plastic, pear, candied oranges and diaper. Taste is salty, brine, lacks sweetness of almost any kind, spicy, very carbonated (despite it looking flat), with a dry finish and linger of candied oranges. The only Darkside Iíve been disappointed with thus far.

Mora2000 (5667) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Batch 4-25, bottled 5-26-10. The beer was only filled up to the top of the label, something I didnít notice until I got the beer home. The beer pours a hazy brown-amber color with a white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, dark fruit and alcohol. The flavor is a mix of caramel malt, yeast, brown sugar, alcohol, dark fruit and peaches, as well as some sherry, which I assume is from a little bit of oxidation. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This beer is much more like a dubbel than a Belgian Blonde, but it is still a pretty tasty drink.

Hazy blood orange color/ off white head. Candi sugar, light pit fruit, tropical fruit aromas. medium bodied with soft co2. Sugary sweet flavors with light pit fruits, sweet spices. Drying hop, alcohol twang to finish.
