Good thing I had the glass ready to go. This one turned into a mini volcano when I opened it. Good head but it dissipated quickly. Decent lacing for the top half of the glass. The first drink reminded me of having some of me Grandpa's beer when I was little. Then it turned into lemon and rose flavored beer. Quite nice. A refreshing departure from the norm.

Enjoy this I did. Immensely. And as much as I did just couldn't keep out of the back of my mind how much I like Fred. I know, I know - look at what is before you. Two different animals. Kicking myself HARD for not having picked up more in Portland. Girlfriend distracting me at John's. Guess I'll just have to go back.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Intensely fruity aroma with a little hops and yeast thrown in. Clear golden color, small white head. Flavor is light malt, light fruit, some hop spiciness, and a slightly bitter hop finish. Quite dry and highly carbonated. Overall, very fruity at first, with hop spice and bitterness really coming through in the flavor. It says All-American ale on the label, but it actually seems quite Belgian. Decent example of a diverse style.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 2, 2004
12 oz bottle. The largest head I've ever seen, maybe. took 10 minutes to pour the glass. Pale golden, slightly cloudy. Yeasty, orangey nose, light and pleasant but nothing that stands out. Very peppery and spicy througout, light honey sweetness underneath but mostly quite sour. Saison has probably been the most difficult Belgian style for me to appreciate; this one doesn't really help explain the mystery.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JAN 31, 2004
Nose of wheat & fruit (apples & pears, citrus & berries). Pours a hazy burnt yellow with pale golden highlights. The gigantic white rocky head is fully lasting with exceptional lacing. The sweet and sour flavor has nice balance with moderate acidity. The finish is toasty. The light to medium body is very lively and creamy. The finish feels brisk. Interesting.

YogiBeera (2540) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Huge foamy on the glass sticking head. Hazy orange color. Banana, cloves, mustard and cilantro nose. Hoppy taste, edgy like a dogs hair in the throat but weak and not balanced and also kind of disappointing after this great nose!

pivo (2626) - GERMANY - JAN 5, 2004
Complex spicy, hoppy and fruity nose - a little musty. Cloudy pale orange color and a huge foamy, spongy head. Resembles a Belgian from its appearance. Thin apricot maltiness with a direct, thin hop bitter centered in the mouth. Kinda grassy. Dry, thin and martini-like.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Thick white small bubbled foamy head with a muddy straw body. Spicey, mustard, bready, earthy, with slight pepper. Full bodied, wicked lacing, and ends very crisp, yet somehow musty.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Golden and a bitcloudy with a thick and billowy white head.Aroma is citrusy and fruity with some sour and spice notes also. Quite an interesting aroma for sure. Mouthfeel is highly charged like a Belgian Trippel. Flavor is nice and similar to some Belgians I like, Delerium Tremens and Urthel Hibernus Quentum come to mind. Fruity and spicy with notes of pepper and melons. Overall a decent brew. Thanks to Sham for the bottle.
