DuffLover (115) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Its that time of year. Aroma of green apple and other fruits. Hazy tan/brown color with a decent light tan head. Flavor of fruits and spices - very festive. Palate was a little fizzy. Overall a good, atypical seasonal.

thewolf (11878) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Bottle. Pours deliciously dark burgundy with first a fizzy head that settles as a cm off-white cream on top. Stunning aroma - berries, coriander, yeast and sweetness. Much fuller than youd expect. Flavours begind sweet with heavy malty tones - quite musty. Then the fruityness prevails ending with subtle bitterness (in a toffee way) with an alcoholic tone at the end.

Aurelius (4937) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Big beer aroma - stewed fruity, candied, brown sugar, a bit musty, alcohol. Fun label, faux-crockery bottle, red foil covered cork-n-cradle, mostly clear medium brown beer, thin head earn good appearance marks. Too tart. Spicy and warming, woody bittering, not too sweet, vanilla. Tart-bitter finish with some candied/caramelized aftertastes. Technically good, I didnt enjoy it as much as I was hoping.

smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2006
from Total Wine - thin dark head, spicy with coriander, full with malty body and cant put my finger on all the other spices, finishes very smooth with lite alcohol but you feel the warmth. Most enjoyable and my 3 brothers enjoyed this the most of all beers tried so far.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
[big bottle] Sour aroma; lemon mixed with noble hops that predicts a dry drink. Pours a clear dark amber, effervescent wit a lasting white foam. Sweet and sour beer: smooth, sweet, nutty, toasty grainbill with lemony noble hops. The sourness is in harmony with the sweetness and gentle bittering. Full body, high carbonation, warming.

Theis (14943) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle at Lbaren - shared with Bager. Clear deep red - white head. Fruity, licorice, high sweetness, spicy, too high carbonation - kills some flavors. Not complex enough.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2006
750 ml bottle. Dark amber colour, mostly lasting tan head. Very much dominated by a "Unibroue-like" yeast character - very fruity, yeasty, and lightly spicy aroma and flavour. Medium bodied. Good, but straightforward.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber with a nice size fluffy off-white head. Aroma of belgian spices and yeast, fruit, citrus, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, spices, fruit, slight bitterness in the finish. Great brew.
