Beerdedone (2956) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle sample at the Newtown brewfest with Mad Indian and Stegosaurus. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet malts, and corn. The flavor is bitter, citrus, carbonation, and yeast.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle. Golden color. White head. I also experienced the bottle spewed all over. What a shame, as this is a really nice beer. Body is medium. Aroma was citrus, malt, yeast and other notes of sweetness. This beer is by the way very sweet in Aroma. Flavor is sweet with very slight notes of bitterness. Slightly bitter-sweet finish. Nice and drinkable beer!

Bottle sample at the Newtown brewfest with Mad Indian and Beerded_one. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pale malts, and slight hops. The flavor is yeast, citrus, and slight bitterness in the finish. Decent body, ok brew.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2006
This one pissed me off from the get go! Popped the cap and it spewed all over the place. Including my keyboard. Pours a light gold with small head (because most of that ended up on the floor). Even thought it was a real mess it is still a pretty good beer. A sharpish malt and spice flavor.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2006
Very fruity, estery, banana, yeast, babyfood. Not my kind of beer. Has a bit of "sahti" going on also. I suppose nothing wrong with it, I just don’t like the banana and melon like fruit flavours.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 Would have never guessed this was a trippel. Recommended as a non-bitter beer. Pours like any other pale yellow american beer, clean light transparent brownish yellow orange. Smells like any other yellow beer, no rememberable aroma. Initial interesting taste. Just a little hoppy on the palate. Nice finish, slight linger that does not last. Pretty good stuff. Much better than merry monks.

luiss (89) - Elmsford, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle~The head starts off very frothy, lacing on this beer is beautiful(top notch). Smells sort of citrousy, herby, and yeasty. Taste very mellow hard to describe the taste but the malt is there as well as the dry finish to it.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle. Aroma was of yeast and bread. Dark gold body with white head and quality lacing. Flavor had a light zesty lemon with enough balance to keep it from being watered down. Smooth easy drinkable brew.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Pours a unique golden tawny color w/ medium semi creamy froth that sits there for a spell. Aroma of malted crisp green apples. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are moderately tart and fruity featuring an apple spice character. Light tangy bittering on the finish.
