LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Draft - A golden amber color. The palate of this beer was overly sweet for me without much balance. Didn't finish that great.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Overly acidic with a homebrew-gone-wrong aroma and flavor. It's tolerable in small sips, but I couldn't finish this. Pretty gross.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 (On Tap at Max’s On Broadway, Baltimore)... Extended RBSG2003... Slightly hazy, orange brew. Small, white creamy head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is yeasty, malty and fruity with notes of white wine. Smells like "liquid fun" to me! The flavor is tart, tangy and fruity... Grapefruit? Honey and white wine flavors. Light-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and light carbonation. Dry, acidic finish. Very good brew! Pulls up just short of world-class! Summertime!

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2003
Dark golden color with a light head. The nose is candyish with hints of honey and some sweet malt. A bitter-sweet malt body is complimented by hints of yeast and a nice hoppy finish. Somewhat spritzy but nice and tastey.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2003
Despite the name, I think you'd be hard pressed to consider this a Poperings knockoff. Bright golden amber. Sweet aroma of honey, clover. Palate is sweet and dry - a good combo that is hard to execute. Light caramel dances with gin-like Styrian hops. Occasionally cloying but ultimately appetizing as the hops regain their strength late.
