dingo (37) - USA - AUG 29, 2004
This was a tasty beer that gave me some problems. My problems were all foam related. The head rose fast and kept on flowing until it was all over the table. Glass number two seemed to go pretty much the same way. It was a nice dark haze in the glass that tasted sweet and finished with a bit of hop to it. The smell was very sweet and sugary.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Very muddy golden/amber. Tall fluffy white head. Aroma is gentle but with a lot of components. Mild fresh bread mixed with an acidic cobweb, topped with bananas, wheat and spice. Wheat sweetness start that leads to mild spice and earthy hops. Sometimes one can be underwhelmed with a brew that is so easy to drink and well put together.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Pours a slightly hazy orange with a puffy white head. Very complex fruit aroma with pear and orange and a bit of spice. Taste starts very fruity with a mild sourness, fig, apricot, pear, all come through very well. Very smooth and dry finish.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - JUL 15, 2004
Light yeasty nose, huge spongy head, dark cloudy chesnut color. Subtle fruity beginning with yeasty flavors. A dry cracker finish that turns to paper. A little sour with a spicy after effect - some clove and pepper. Thin and a quick profile. Nice but not overwhelming.

egajdzis (5695) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Poured an opaque, murky, yellow orange color with a small white head, but no lacing. Spicy aroma of vanilla (was this aged in an oak barrel??), dark fruits, yeast and some alcohol. Taste was full of lots of nice citrus, sweet malts (caramel), vanilla and yeast. Alcohol was hardly noticable. I wish I could get this more often!

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 10, 2004
Sampled @ Helsinki Beer Festival 2004
Orange, murky, medium head that lasts. Flavor is spicy and very peppery. Medium body. Flavor is peppery, a bit dry and sour. Dry, spicy finish. Also a hard beer to rate - taste is pretty unique and too spicy (read: peppery) for me.

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2004
Bottled (Helsinki Beer Festival 2004)
Orange, extreme hazy. Steady orange head. Aroma is fruits, malt, apples, citron, orange and chocolate box. Very dry and sour and unique taste. Mold and wood flavor. Peppery aftertaste. Certainly unique brew and one third of bottle was enough for me (cost only 5 euros!):)

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 (Bottled@Pikkulintu, 04/2006) Very peppery finish. Boysenberry, port, gooseberry. Yeast! Very exotic! (Bottled, 0,75l at the Helsinki Beer Festival 2004, was 6-4-6-3-13=3.2) Opaque, dark amber color, medium head. Sour and bitter apple juice aroma. Bitter flavor with allspice and vinegar. Very strong and long, peppery aftertaste. A very original brew.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Fruity, flowery aroma, lightly sweet, herbal and tart, with well-placed notes of apple, pear, tangerine, lemongrass, orange, apricot, peppery spice, mustard seed, dry leaves and intriguing spicy, dusty, estery yeast attributes. Lustrous auburn color, dusky and opaque, with a fine, uneven, lasting head and sticky, bountiful lacing. Intricate, meandering flavor profile, at first spicy and tart, becoming bittersweet, hoppy and fruity, and with a long, floral, musty, piquant and semidry finish. Lush, faintly lactic and creamy mouthfeel, full body. Masterfully done; thanks to the BBB'ers, Dany P. and Matt A.
