nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2008
12 oz. bottled 03-15-07. Humongous creamy cap on this lightly hazy, orange-copper beer. Front is estery bubblegum turning to spicy grain, caramel apple, and tea leaf. Lightly toasted nut, fresh apple, and spicy-herb hops on the finish. Near-medium body is smooth with a tingly, slightly dry finish.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle into Duvel glass. Cloudy orange with a mostly lasting frothy off-white head. Biscuity malts, herbal hops, and light fruit in the aroma. Off-sweet bready/biscuity malt flavor wih a fruity/floral underpinning--pear, melon, honey and a mild white pepper spiciness and herbal hop note. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Basically mellow and quite fruity. Not overly complex, but enjoyable.

Bottle. Cloudy orange-copper body with a small, white, creamy head. Aroma of vanilla sugar, peach, apricot, and cookie dough. Sweet caramel flavour along with herbal hops, vanilla sugar, and cookies. Quite nice.

12oz, 2006 vintage, consumed today... meh, not that great, but the yeast has faded quite a bit making me happier, however there isnt much going on here, just a bland easy sipping ale, definitely dont see how this would hold up for 5 years as the bottle indicates.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a small, dense white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma suggests sweet malts, yeast, fruits (citrus, aplle, cherry), leather, and spices. The flavor tended to the funky side with medium sweetness, fruits (same as the aroma), and yeast. Not bad, although I am unlikely to revisit this.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This 2006 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy very softly carbonated dark orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was musty fruity and farmhouse. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of mild fruit hops caramel and dough.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2008
12 oz. single from Johnís Grocery (Iowa City, IA). 2007 Edition. Poured a hazy dark honey-esque gold with a thick offwhite head. Aroma is slightly sweet and yeasty with that nice spiciness. Initial taste is a bold alcohol infused fruitiness that is garnished with some nice spices. The alcohol is a bit much, but the taste is still there with a dry finish. Sweetness that is heavy in alcohol is my main point here. Ok. Would rather drink the Pere any time!

Had to drink this in plastic. Im not sure I should rate it, but I dont want to forget. Its a pretty strong beer that pours gold and smells of spices. Creamy and malty texture balances it well.

very very fruity nose, with some spiciness as well. Very thick, very creamy white head, that seems to lace almost like soap. flavor is sweet, fruity, but spicy as well. Lots of malts to be sure but really no noticeable hop finish. It does actually finish rather dry though. Not a bad beer. Just bought a single bottle. may try again.
