YogiBeera (2494) - 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 (2586) - 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.

Unfiltered golden yellow cloud with suspended floaties for the base color, top is tall, white, and fluffy, crumbles down softly to a murky hazen skim on top, lace sticks randomly in inkblots. Smell is majorly dulled up and musty, almost smokey of citrus tones, melon husks, lemon, pear, and red apple, all very musty or old with hints of cherry in there. Its not a bad funk, its weird, but nice. Whatever the yeast or malts are used in this makes for an interesting mix to so the least. Taste is subdued citrusy sweetness and mustyness, mostly lemon, with a some slight zest spice poking at the finish. Its more like a hefe then a pale, there's some nice grains in there, freshly rendered with notes of breadish toastedness, notes of banana and melon show up late in the finish and leaves trails of clove spice and smokeyness on the palate as well. Feel is nearly full, quite lively with a favorable crunchy unfiltered texture of a hefe. OK, so its not what I'd really call a pale, the hop tones aren't what you'd expect compared to most pales but this is a nice beer non-the-less. A different approach to the style perhaps, not sure of that but this was a nice surprise. Totally reminds me of Capital Kloster Weizen but with less clove and banana esters and thats not a pale?

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Maple sweetness is diligently sprinkled onto the fresh hay...A citrusy and floral breeze is hugged by the larger-than-usual malt character (for the style, anyway)....Eclectic spicy hop notes bloom within the lingering cereals, building into a wooden bitterness...A fresh bottle of this can be simply wonderful...

Hazy golden with a HOTD type of generous white head. Lacing is top notch, rocky, it's a battlefield to admire as it diminishes a bit. Ruth is one charming creature. Complex aroma of balanced yeast and malt: Tart bread, lemon, wet hay, flowers (rose), candy (christmas candle), lilac. A great sniff. Funky taste, not so sour as expected, just enough to be refreshing, pie dough yeast, dust, citrus, potato? and a nice touch of salt and pepper. Body is smooth, medium, dense, perhaps a bit overcarbonated from my perspective (if anything). I stare at that beautiful balance. Grossly underrated from my point of view. You're the man hopsrus!

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Yellow appearance kind of like a hefe, with a yeasty nose that had some fruity and spicy touches. Almost no head with light to moderate carbonation. The flavor was very similar to the nose...not very complex, but very consistent and drinkable. Much more subtle and balanced than other offerings I've had from hair of the dog. But this difference is what makes me like this beer even more.

Pours a clouded blond with a tall, sturdy white head. Nose is odd. Smells like old or molded books. Some hay as well. Light spice. The tongue has more of the same with some rotten cardboard, citrus, spice and wood. Light but has a moldy and bitter aftertaste. Decent beer.
