MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2005
(bottle) Slightly hazy golden colour with a big foamy white head. Sweet malty aroma with oranges and spice. Initially sweetbitter malty taste with a distinctive orange peel fruitiness and a smooth bitter and spicy finish. The alcohol is extremely well hidden.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 8, 2005
Nice peach orange with a sweet fro of white bubbles, ala Ben Wallace. Smell is weird caramel, and a funky trash/permed hair smell. Taste is sweet, with bandaids, blood, sugars and alcohol. Some dryess from the bitter German hops in aftertaste. Strong in a bad way.

MIBRomeo (2564) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2005
a light golden color huge frothy white head and lots of carbonation bubbles not much lacing. Smells of light fruit, pepper, and bread and some alcohol. Palate is big creamy smooht and warming only lightly carbonated. Flavor is a very sweet malt a doughy bit hints of pepper and other spice as well as lots of fruit and some other sugars. A decent beer but a bit to sweet for me.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Cloudy roangeish brown color with a small creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor had some nice apricot, pepper, and sweet bready/yeasty tones. The feel was very gassy...lively, crisp carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2005
Draft, half pint. Man, I was sure this wasn’t the Abt when I was served this beer...lighter than I’ve ever seen one...but it seems to fit what others are saying. Golden-blonde hue with a white, creamy head. Banana, lemon, honey, herb, anise (very light), and toffee aromas. Comes across like a sweet fruit bread. Heavily sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter finish. Medium-full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: nice fruit esters and decent body, but not much else going on.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) The "Abt" is normally the top-product in a range of abbey-beers - and this is no exception from that rule. Dark golden with a fairly huge head. Fruity, spicy freshnes in spite of the very potent, warming alcohol. Some good hoppiness in the finish. A rather atypical Abt - but still nice. 061097

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled. A hazy copper coloured beer with a pleasant white head which hangs around a while but not through the whole bottlefull. The aroma is sweet and spicy with coriander noted, and alcohol. The taste is quite sweet and biscuity with fruity notes (possibly apricot) and again alcohol and spices. A nice beer, not in the same league as other quads, being a bit over sweet, but still nice.

Metalhead (630) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Big frothy head. Fruity armoa with mild yeast. Peaches,mild citrus and yeast. Mild spices. Pretty tasty and disappeared too quick.

YogiBeera (2487) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Big nice white frothy head on this orange golden shimmering brew.. Fizzy carbonation. The head leaves nice laces on the glass. Dough and vanilla peach nose. Medium bitter kick at first, followed by an intense peach and yest taste - medium lasting with a light peppery finish.
