Stine (1546) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Poured from a 22 oz. Thick sunshine. Mandarin orange and toffee are predominant in the perfectly average intial aroma; hints of tide and vinegar take it for a strange and disconcerting turn. Leafy flavor leading into candy sweetness; green apple, quite tart, spices, and slick, sweetened iced tea. Butterscotch, honey, sugar; straightforward and bold, but too sweet. Sticky in the mouth and undercarbonated, letting the heat through a bit. Cloying; haphazard. Thanks for sharing, Mike!

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2007
Hazy amber colour with a beige head. Hoppy, light fruity aroma with some caramel sweetness. Light malty, caramel sweet flavor with hoppy fruity and bitter notes. Dry, bitter finish.

sloth (2469) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Small tan head, fair retention with a bit of stringy lace. Amber orange color with a goodly amount of haze and floaters. Nose of pine and grapefruit, somewhat earthy. Body is med/full, lightly oily and resiny on the palate with a gentle carbonation. Grapefruit and pine enter first, citrusy orangey flavors all over the place with notes of pine and maybe some caramel malts bringing up the rear. Lightly sweet finish is hoppy and long. A touch more bittering hops to balance out the sweetness would be nice. Props to jasonmech77 for the bomber!

Bottle. Hazy amber coloured with a white head. Aroma of fruits, berries, hops and pine needles. Flavour of fruits, hops, grape fruits and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with light notes of malt. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of citrus and straw, leading to a dry bitter finish. I’m not overly impressed.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle. A hazy orange beer with a big off-white head. The aroma is of sweet malt, lemon and floral hops, so is the taste. Medium to full body with a sweet light dry finish.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Poured a dark golden color with good head and good lacing. Aroma was floral pine and citrus some light fruits. Flavor same as the aroma but balanced out with malt. Good beer.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle courtesy of SS: Poured a deep copper color ale with a big foamy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of yellow grapefruit, floral and bitter hops is quite sublime and well balance for a style that does produce quite a lot of unbalanced beers. Taste is dominated by the yellow grapefruit characteristics of the hops with some floral malt notes and a bitter finish. Body is quite full with some great carbonation and no alcohol could be detected. Very well done for the style and something I wish I could have access to more often.

ExSpectator (65) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Bottle. Bitter, with lots of grapefruit/citrus aroma as well as some spices. Dry finish. Would definitely pick it up again.
