Malty and Hoppy with some burnt sugars and burning alcohols. Great tasting but i felt the carbonation like a soda pop, artificial like. Its also got a funky finish to it.

Pours a cloudy orange brown from the bottle with minimal wisp of white head. Aroma of funky orange and caramel malts, hint of oak and banana. Taste follows, clean for the booze level, but you can feel the kick in the stomach. Nice but nothing crazy.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, barnyard, yeast, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with light grain, wet biscuit, and funk. Easy to drink, very good.

hotstuff (4341) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 7-15-2009 (Corked & caged bottle) When poured, this beer forms a large, rocky, foamy, fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished, mostly transparent/slightly hazy golden body, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is bready malt, brett, funky, yeast, citrus, and herbal hops. The Taste is sweet, yeasty, bready malt, lightly spicy, and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly and this beer is light bodied. Overall, I enjoyed this beer’s flavors and the 8.5%ABV was apparent, but not overly so. This beer tastes refreshing on a muggy Indiana summer day.

Scrapersnbeer (1500) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Aroma of rotten pear and other tart fruits, ever had ’peach barbeque?’ I am sensing that too. Weird yellowish tan color. Strange yeast effects. Clearly not a sour ale but has the tastes of one. Heavy dose of tart apples and pears, maybe grapes. Possibly barrel aged for a time. Hard beer to judge as there’s no immediate yardstick to measure it by. Not really my thing from a purely subjective standpoint.

weihenweizen (1943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle poured into a trappist glass. Pours deep golden with big chunks of yeast and off-white head. Medium/light body, medium carbonation, and thick big bubble lacing. Taste is pear. Reminds me somewhat of a tripel, not interested in having again.

750 thanks to Dallas. Pours a murky brown and copper color with a large white head. A fruity nose with light yeast. The flavor is very sweet, some caramel, dry yeast, candies, a bit of warmth, light hops and fruit in the finish, apricot. Nice.

Gription79 (2388) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This bottle is showing some age. Caramel, spicy, floral, masala/Indian food. Great for the age, but I would have liked to try this fresh.

Deep gold, slight haze, off white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, some earthy Brett character. Flavor of grainy and biscuity malt, floral notes, earthy Brett, a little leathery age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
