fly (1431) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2004
SWEET initially, malt way up front & sugary with hops on the distant hillside waving as if to say we may be there eventually. Adult candy - tricked or treated? Not really unpleasantly sweet, but edging up to it. Perhaps ever so slightly better than I’m implying, but not by a great measure. (and unlike the % listed here, this bottle says 6.6%)

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2005
Shiney red-amber beer with small ivory colored head. The smell is slight sweet, malty, nutty and has a faint spicy accent in the aroma. The taste is smooth, light sweet with some caramel notes. Also touches of nuts and the bitterness of nut-peel. It has hints of sugared ginger, and some bitter herbs. The aftertaste reminds me a bit of SUZE = a Frensh apperitief.
Earlier Rating: 5/17/2005 Total Score: 2.5
