GABF 2005. Solid gold body and a medium-sized, uniform, foamy white head. Major elements in the aroma are horse saddle and wild flowers. Semi-dry flavor with nice rich pale malts, subdued phenols, and floral hops that last through the finish. Medium bodied. This is a very good, American-made Belgian ale with apparent allusions to Orval.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Sampled out of the bottle, thanks to John- Pours a clear golden color, small white head. Aroma is very pleasent, floral and spicy. Flavor is lots of belgian yeast, suprisingly light for 7%, hides the alcohol well. Spicy and well balanced.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2005
GABF 2005. Big white head. Clear dark yellow. Delicate aroma is floral, hoppy. Bitter hops up front, followed by a rich earthiness with floral, bitter, cinnemon, spicy undertones. Very unique and incredibly drinkable.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2006 Mashed fruit and lightly spiced bread pudding in the aroma. Golden in color with a finger thick firm head. More bread pudding, but spicier in the flavor than smell. Has a sweetness that is more fruity than sugary and that pervades the whole affair. Very nice beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle: Fiery golden, large rocky white head, spotty yet sticky lacing, moderate carbonation.   Tart nose, much like a pixi stick, candyish.   Sour fruitiness as well.   Yeasty on the tongue, sourness is very mild, not as much as the nose suggested.   Light sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Becomes somewhat thin on the backside.   Smelled great, but didn’t follow through.   Still enjoyable tho.   Thanks for sharing Facto!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle tasted at Pitonka’s tasting
Clear bronze color with light sticky head and very light lacing. The nose is bright with hops and malt, very flavorful but clean and belgian in nature.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2005
The pour was copper with a nice beige head. Not really thick. The look reminded me of Maple Syrup. Smell had syrup, corriander and honey. Very fruity flavor balanced out with a nice maltiness. Nothing wrong with this.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Hazy golden amber/honey body with a big beige head. Good bubbles and lacing. The aroma was malty, some honey, yeast, citric/acidic fruit, note of corriander. Good feel in the mouth. Gentle carbonation, smooth and a bit syrupy but more in the sense of a stickiness than a cloying sweetness. Flavor was not very complex: notes of yeast and fruit and spice but none to any dominant degree. Not too shabby.

notalush (4921) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Cloudy orange hue with moderate, but sticky lace - musty, tart, earthy aroma, with hints of lemon rind and pepper - herbal, spicy, saison-like - touches of banana, orange peel - pastry-like malt - spicy, peppery finish, with gentle hops - quite nice - if you told me this was made in belgium, I would believe you.
