Ernest (6731) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), trace yeast (mold), with notes of banana, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A boring, watery, filtered, simple attempt at a Belgian (homebrew Duvel clone recipe?). Full Sail should probably stick to hop-bombs.

Bomber. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head that falls to film as quickly as it possibly can. Slight nutty aroma to go with a fair effort at a wild Belgian yeast nose. Some pears and nuts in the palate. Medium body, almost-fizzy carb. This is fairly drinkable and pleased many co-workers this afternoon at an impromptu tasting they asked me to arrange. Iíll buy it again someday. Hoping to see it on draft.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle: Clear golden, moderate white foamy head, spotty lacing, very light carbonation.   Yeasty/bready nose, very light or pale, soft citrus based spices, even softer pepper.   Lemony based flavor, yeasty, with an odd tapioca pudding like finish.   Never thought I would get that, but it appears to be there.   Touch of almond and vanilla in the finish.   This is a real odd duck.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate.   ABV is well hidden.   Definitely doesnít taste like 8.5%, but it sure feels like it.   Somewhat dry after the finish.   Not bad, but very different.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Light golden shade, covered by a mostly lasting white creamy head. Pretty well integrated yeastiness for an america beer. Gentle phenols attach themselves to honeyed cereals and banana/mango biscuitiness. A slice of oxidation passes close to ruining it, but the damage is not done yet, the flavors still lively, lifted up by a medium to full body with full carbonation. Not the most attenuated example and tartish in its yeastiness, but its highly drinkable.

Tap @ Full Sail Pilsener Room. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Flowery aroma, blossom, green apple. Good for summer.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Tap at Brouwers. Gold with a thin head and big bubbly carbonation. Clove and banana in the aroma. It really reminded me of a Bavarian wheat. Very yeasty. Light and fruity flavor. Very smooth. Very carbonated. I enjoyed this one more than most apparently.

Pailhead (5685) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma has lots of yeastiness, sugar, light fruit, and a hint of spice. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small whtie head that fades to nothing rather quickly. Flavors of orange peel, light apple, yeast and a spicey finish. Candi sugar present in the background. A tad thin.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Clear caramel color, light head, mellow lacing. Nose of musky hops and sour malts. The flavor is balanced, bland and musky. The finish is akin to horribly dirty laundry. Donít know why this didnít work for me but it just didnít. The saving grace was the absence of alcohol taste.

notalush (5362) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Fizzy, clear golden, frothy lace - nose of dusty, dry, biscuity malts, some phenolic character, light tartness - taste is light, biscuity, flinty. crackery, peppery - some underlying sweetness - I usually like most of these characteristics in a beer, but this is beer is too strong for its light and crisp flavors, because a strong, boozy/alcoholic character dominates in the long term, and the other qualities of the beer are too delicate and/or weak to support this - alcoholic finish, lingering dry malts - meh.
