750ml bottle at Kaisla Helsinki shared with FatPhil &Anna 080508 color: dark orange bit head Scent.nice sour Taste: sour, fruity, bit herbs, phenols like perfume.. Tasted this first time years ago at One pint. I had good memories about that also. Sometimes my smoking habit destroys my sharp tasting and scent-nosing experience.

Weak and quickly diseappearing white head. Light amber-hazy cloudy colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with apricots, pears and light orange peel notes. Flavor is malty with ripe fruits tones, ending in a balanced fruity finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle. [thanks bigbro!]
Pours a lightly haze pale yellow-orange. Big, creamy white head on top, reaaly dense and dissipates slowly, creating blotches on my glass. Wondeful sweet aroma. Lots of honey, yeast, herbs, grass, chamomille and apples. Nice, lively mouthfeel. Flavour is a little weirdly metallic at first. then turns biscuity sweet with good sweetish honey. Finish is rather dry, with lots of spiciness, especially pepper in the far end.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 16, 2008
Ogni tanto ci si imbatte in qualcosa del genere: una birra senza luppolo, o con pocopocopoco (lo vedi il luppolo, è quello là! bene) giusto perché bisogna scrivercelo sull’etichetta. Ed è buona, ha un carattere molto curioso, come logico, complessità di spezie nel sapore e un aroma che stordisce. Mai avrei detto gli 8 gradi, l’alcool è celato perfettamente.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Golden orange color with small head (served too cold). Tart fruity and honeyish aroma with weird meaty and herbal scent. Sweetish flavor with tart fruitiness, honey, cork and hint of glue. Weird spicy and herbal notes featuring pepper, chamomille and menthol. Not my favourite Dupont beer, but still tasty.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
25cl bottle. Thanks a lot to Fonefan. I have always been a big fan of Dupont. Poured into my moinette stein. Amazing unclear orange with a very fine egg white lasting & creamy head. Aroma is typical Dupont - very fresh & fruity (orange) & yeast. Some pepper & spices also (coriander). More on the spicy side than on the fruity, which for me, is a bit disappointing. Full soft mouthfeel. So elegant & complex - & still got this high drinkability. Brilliant!

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a very cloudy amber with almost no discernable head. Smells of citrus, coriander, some pepper, tarte. Tastes spicy with lots of citrus character and a semi sweet finish. Very perfumy on the finish.

750ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Hazy orange, thin self-supporting head. Sweet, slightly alcoholic fruity aroma - banana and yeast most obvious. Spicy and sweet taste, slightly candy-like. Liquorice. Quite fizzy palate. A little alcoholic, and some of the liquoricey yeastiness is a bit harsh.

750ml bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007)
Light cloudy orange. Even though there’s no hops, this smells remarkably hoppy. some sweet, spicy coriander too. Taste is pretty sweet, corn or caramel, at times almost lemonadey, but quite a full bodied light maltiness.

BenRod (48) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Hazy reddish gold color with creamy white head. Decent lacing. very floral, spicy aroma with mild citrus. flavor has bold start with cinnamon tones up front that linger. Mild citrusy hops linger on the tongue. Healthy note of ginger in the taste, as well.

Fin (7029) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle from BOE This looked a really interesting beer, brewed to an old Gallic style. Poured a mid-gold, quite heavy initially on the carbonation and with a large white bubbly head. The aroma really was very nice, though if truth be told even my large conk couldn’t detect much more than spice, alcohol and that lovely yeastiness. This tasted initially spicey, I thought star anise at first but then discounted that maybe a touch of ’chinese five spice’ not really sure but something along those lines. Quite a gusty beer and very up front has the merest of sourness creeping in around the edges and a subtle bitterness that is very prolonged, some cold tea as well? Really clings to the roof of your mouth like a clingy thing, sorta like spiderman on a building but high rise building as he would like daft clinging to a low rise building like a bungalow or mobile home, anyway clingy. Really nice beer that I would defintaely seek out again.
