Pours a lighter amber color, medium head. Lightly nutty, some toasty malt, lighter fruits. Flavor is similar except with some tinny notes on the end. Medium bodied, earthy dry finish. Not bad.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Amber color, lots of bubbly active head and carbonation. Fruity, nutty nose with traces of dusty yeast. Flavors start kinda fruity (apple and pear), then turn a touch sour, with yeast and hoppy bitterness coming in. Pretty malty, overall, with intresting yeasty flavors. Finishes with a woody tone. Pleasing, but not outstanding.

750 Bottle. BB date of 3-03 so this is well aged. Bought two cases on sale last year. Poured a hazy orangey ambersimilar to iced tea. Finger thick dense beigeish head. Color cleared after several minutes. Aroma was of sweet malt and some candy sugar. Tasted of sweet malt,candied fruit,subtle hints of almonds if swirled around the mouth, dryish finish that disappeared as the bottle warmed. Left the lips slightly sticky. I’m guessing from my first taste of this batch 10 months ago that this beer is pretty much peaking out. Got a couple bottles saved for the winter holidays.

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2004
750 Bottle: Clear amber hue with a frothy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of taosted malts, apple, pear, almond, hazelnut, floral hops, and eathy yeast esters. The taste starts twangy with lots of fruits and a zesty yeast undertone. Nutty and woody on the finish with just a snap of bitters to keep it balanced. Some acidic nature lingers well into the evening. The feel is crisp and lively, earthy. A good beer and worth a try but not among the best of genre.

jzzbassman (1571) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Amber with steady bubbling producing a lasting compact tan head. Toasted almond like aroma, with a very earthy, restrained spice to the flavor. Matched very well with the garlic pesto chicken and cheese ravioli dish.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Amber in color with a small dissapating head. Nice aroma of sweet malts. Flavor mostly fruity with little hop character, finishing overly sweet. Nice beer but nothing special.

notalush (5669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2004
bottled at brewtopia - a pretty standard biere de garde - some caramel going on, but mostly grassy and grainy - nothing stand-out, glad I had it at a fest instead of dishing the money out for a whole bottle on my own.

TheBeerGod (5914) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Pours almost copper with a small tanned head. Aroma is sweet with some hints of caramel, light spice, and malt. Bit of roastiness as well. Taste is nicely hopped with more of the malt coming through. There’s a hint of cocoa on the tongue but also an odd cardboard or paper-like taste towards the finish. Not bad though, mind you. A bit effervescent on the palate and the finish is bittersweet. Good beer.
