rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a 750ml brown bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle has a bottle date of 09-28-09. Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops. Taste: There are dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel. Notes: Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottled. Mildly skunked aroma, German hop, slight cauliflower, yam. Mild yeasty notes. Mostly dry. Big fluffy head. Oxidized, metallic notes sits atop what is otherwise a very pleasing flavor, bready, doughy, light and crisp and mellow. Despite the flawed aroma, this turns out to be a very nice drink.

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: First rating for this brewery, a great soft, subtle beer with nice blending of malts and spices. A great session beer but with care @ 7.8% ABV. Food Pairing: Cheese platter.

Bottle 330ml from la Grande Epicerie, Paris. Tasty beer. Aromas of caramel, hay, and straw. Taste is sweet and sour, with good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Yellow, with a thin head.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Straightforward, Belgian PA aroma -- tannic, sweetish, a little caramel, slightly floral, a little vanilla, slight banana and female sweat. Good 750ml bottle, handwork label. Candied, sweet, pear/pomaceous flavors, a little astringent, tannic. Slick, medium to slightly dense body, effervescent. This was not terribly complex. but really hit a sweet spot that I have for bitters and belgian PAs. On top of that, I got this at a clearance price of $1.99/750ml -- $1.99/750 ml is not a terrible price for malt liquor, much less a beer of this sophistication. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

stefannilssons (1447) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2013
Det här var en favoritöl för några är sedan och det var nog tre är sedan jag drack den senast. Det här är fortfarande en bra öl med kryddig smak av jäst och lite syra, kroppen är stabil och ölen är välbalanserad i största allmänhet.

RichardW (1452) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Sour lemon and yeast aroma, nicely done Belgian style beer, with bags of flavour; hints of coriander, orange zest, cinammon and cloves. Sweet and a touch sugary, without going too far. Warming in the chest, lively pour, good dusty gold appearance, biscuit finish, with the sourness staying right through. Very enjoyable.

A fresh harvest of barley, hops and grain rests on the windowpane…It heralds Grandpa’s old recipe…Sweet, winey, with drops of vanilla, it is sure to make you think of your ancestors…

egajdzis (5254) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Poured an amber golden color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, barnyard, citrus, caramel, and alcohol. Taste of more caramel, citrus, black pepper, and a slight alcohol burn.

Thanks to Secret Santa, I think? The beer pours to a golden body with a lasting creamy white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is lightly basementy that is imersed in grassy hops. Light. The flavor is delicate. Nice sweet malts and interesting yeasts. Grassy hops and it’s very balanced. The palate is smooth and silken. Medium bodied. Nov. 28th, 2005 bottle.
