alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - JUN 4, 2008
Draft at Clyborne. A regular belgian ale, a bit lighter in flavor than the originals. More citrus fruits than others. Some hop in there too. Also the regular banana, buble gum and spices but a bit watered down. Maybe it was served way to cold.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2008
2006 vintage. 12oz. bottle served in a chalice. Bottle conditioned. Way overcarbonated, a bit of a gusher. Poured a hazy gold with a massive head. When it settled down, I got some citrus and a slight sourness (brett?) in the aroma. Medium bodied with some fruit and spice. Slightly sour finish. I had this on tap over Spring break at Clybourn and this was totally different. I preferred the tap version.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Bottle, Medium amber in color. Tastes of molasses and pine needles with cinnamon hints. Extremely pleasing palate feel. Very little carbonation. Frothy off white head with good lacing. Hazy body with a medium amber/brown color. I love the flavor of this beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. They called it the reserva for some reason however im not convinced it was any different. Aroma pilsner, and crystal malts, banana and other light fruits. Beer is dark with red hues. Flavor is banana, plum, and some caramel. A solid beer.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2008
bottle 2006: pours pours a murky looking caramel colour wtih a large tight foamy whtie head adn peppery flakes. aroma is a great earty smell of some brettiness (light) and a good suttle caramel malt that is not to sweet. some fruity esters that i cant place,also some almost sour dough bread aroma. really enjoy the aroma. great earthiness flavour is again earthy but also a great fruity taste that is banana thought light and some dried pit fruits (apricots and almost dried papaya) some touch of funkiness that is very snmooth and enjoyable. i love the malt in this beer and the complex flavour s that meld together. great beer.
