wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2004
75 cL bottle, tulip glass. Average, creamy white head. Hazy, light yellow body. Bread and hay malt (M); flower and perfume hops (M); doughy yeast (L); banana, clove, pear aromas. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, building bitter finish. The bottom line is: very tasty!!! Tart and refreshing just like lemonade.

TheBeerGod (5366) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2004
HUGE thanks to jeffc666 for sharing this awesome beer! Pours a clouded amber with a tight frothy white head. Body has many suspended particle flecks in it. Aroma is spicy and sort of peppery. There’s an aroma of yeast and a light hint of fruit as well. Taste is spiced with a yeasty/wheaty body intermingling with more fruit, a faint hint of bubblegum, and definite spice. Sort of like a suped up witbier. The 8% alcohol is absolutely undetectable. Very soft and light mouthfeel, although there is some carbonation on the palate. Finish is more spice with the pepper coming out a bit more. Nice beer and an awesome way to hit 900!

Murky orange in colour. Aroma of apples, pears, oranges, cider and yeast. Flavour was slightly sweet, yeasty, oranges and apples, funky sourness. Medium body. Finishes with a tangy medium bitterness. Quite good.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2004
Fruity nose, hazy, murky apricot colour, with a small cream head. Flavours of apple, pear, lemon and yeast? Sweet, but not funky as would be expected from this brewer. Light bodied, spritzy. Good stuff nevertheless! Thanks IPFreely!

Radek Kliber (6541) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Rather sweet nose, cinnamon spice, sweet pepper, light toffee. Complex aroma yes, but that’s not what I expected. Light tartness, some green apple, some woody feel, earthy trends. Pleasant display, much more organized than chaotic aroma.
