goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Poured a clear yellow color with a small off-white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma with notes of apples, yeast and crackers. The flavor was sweet with light fruit. Dry finish, fizzy mouthfeel, and lightly warming.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Sampled at Noogfest-II. Thanks for Boutip for the trade. Golden and hazy pour with a white head. Yeasty bubblegum aroma. Sweet. The flavor is yeasty, with Belgian candy sweetness. Banana, hints of spice and honey. Good. Creamy with nice carbonation that lightens up what could have been an overly heavy body. Again, not what I expected but is was good.

Shag (2609) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
A cloudy yellow appearance. An apricot and grassy aroma. The flavor is rather tame with some hay and lemons being the prodominate taste. Very easy drinking but not complex.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Slight skunk to it, but not overpowering. aroma of banana, lemon, pear, and apple. some clove and gummy wheaty flavors as well. a pretty decent brew.

argo0 (11556) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2006
(Noogfest2) Clear golden body with medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, bubblegum, some banana, light herb. Taste is medium sweet, bubblegum, some clove, light banana, herb. Light-medium body, some crispness. Seems like a Hefeweizen/Biere de Garde hybrid.

Suttree (5150) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Lightly cloudy orange, no head. Grapey, white wine aroma, Fairly light bodied. Note of white wine in the flavors, too, and a hint of honey. tasty, a bit lighter all around than I was expecting. Sampled at Noogfest2.

Svesse (6163) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2006
(Bottled) Colour is golden, clear, with a firm white head, lots of lacing. Nose is flowery and spicey with notes of jasmine, lemon peel, ginger, freshly cut grass, traces of yeast and definitely some incense. Taste is fruity with lots of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) and citrus (lemon, lime). Starts fiery and a bit sweet, becomes drier and finishes with refreshing hints of hops. Medium body, leaning slightly to the light side. Well balanced and tasty.

Barrabass (31) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2006
Pale golden colour with a thick white lacy head. very malty and irony nose, a touch of lemon and/or very sour. a long almost disturbing sour taste. reminds me of rhubarb pie. not my favourite.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle
Blonde with neon white head. Probably some wheat in this one. Nice herbal aroma with a hint of vanilla and yeast. Palate is medium body with long finish. Taste more like a belgian blonde than a Biere de Garde. Missing somewhat in herbs and/or sourness. Quite yeasty with a lot of fruits. Nice everyday Belgian.

larsniclas (5621) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2006
Botlled. Deep golden, large white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma with a yeasty and metallic flavour. Too much alcohol coming through.
