CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2005
In the extremely posh Waterhead Hotel, Ambleside. More of a wine establishment, this was their only classy beer. Blonde in colour, aroma spicy candy sugar. No yeast. Reasonably refreshing but could use bottle conditioning and perhaps some hops?

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 14, 2005
By the bottle at 3 Ducks Hostel, 15e, Paris. Delicious, lemony, but maybe a tad bitter? Like the brand and the taste. But I’d lean toward something else for consistent drinking.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Bottle: The aroma to me was very pear/applesque. A deep gold color. With a signifgant head to it. I was suprised by the carbination (in appearence) although it wasn’t as noticable in the mouth. Has a very strong sweet malty taste.

stouby (3686) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle, in GB. Yellow with large white head, almost disappearing. Fine lacings. Aroma of malt and yeast, light of hops. Flavor moderate sweet and acidic/bitter. Light to medium body, watery, soft carbonated.

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Lightly sweet, fruity aroma, floral and faintly honeyish with background spicy notes and hints of pear. Medium golden color with a fine, frothy white head and thick lacing. Flavor profile is sweet throughout, some white grape and lightly citric fruit to be found and possessing a gently bitter, spicy, peppery hop finish. Mouthfeel is thin and very lightly acidic with a medium body. Seemingly quite appropriate for the season.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Huge, white head. Lots of malt, lots of sweetness, but not really cloying though. Rather light body for such a strong beer. Very smooth and easy to drink. 150493

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Unlike some others in the Grimbergen series that are great artisan-clones, the blonde seems little more than the average yeasty wheat beer. Still ok.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2005
A musty, roasted yeast aroma. Decen phoenix emblem on cap and label, clear gold beer, big white head. Musty beer, moderately sweet, yeasty, a little briny. Buttery mouthfeel, a clear candy finish. Subtle hopping, some pickled pepper notes in the finish. Drinkable.

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2005
12 oz bottle - Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl. Pours a sparkliing dark golden with a fluffy, thick white head with creamy lacing. Good bubble action. Aroma of bubble gum, maple syrup and candied sugar. Flavor has a touch of spearmint, cotton candy, yeast and bananas; all belended together nicely. Mouthfeel is thrick and rich. Very solid Belgian
