Pour very slowly, thick pillowy white head that stays and leaves a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet malty nose. Starts sweet, smooth, no alcohol, finish is very mellow. It would be better to have a 500ml bottle of this. Pricey, $4.89 for a 330ml bottle from Tulley’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

bu11zeye (12109) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange-brown body with a large off-white head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. Similar flavor with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

oh6gdx (21914) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Hoppy fruity aroma. Bitter sourish flavour of fruit and hops. Quite boring...

shrubber85 (8582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle. Sweet malt and apple aroma - hint of the alcohol content. Orangish tan color with small head. Sweet orange and apple flavor up front with pepper and chocolate notes ending with a fairly strong alcohol and hops finish. Alcohol content is not as well hidden as the higher quality abts but still a fairly nice beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2005
Light brown, small creamy head. Sweet aroma of candid sugar, almond, chocolate and alchohol. Alcoholic flavour of chocolate, cherries and almond. Cloyingly sweet and alcoholic aftertaste.

schuimkroaat (426) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2005
33 cl bottle, bbe June 08. Amber with an orange hue and a slight haze, weak sparkling. Frothy off-white head, not of a bad size for such a strong beer. Sweet aroma of molasses mixed with a flowery, perfumed one of hops, with a resinlike touch. Sweet, gently fruity taste with alcohol and a rather long dry, bitter and lightly peppery, even peaty finish. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and moderately astringent alcoholic finish. A solid brew, sadly alcohol is too pronounced. There’re better barley wines out there.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Hazy golden body with plentiful carbonation yet a short-lived fizzy head, this has an aroma of alcohol, sweet malt, yeast, and a dribbling of juicy sweet cherries and plums. The mouthfeel is alive with bubbles and somewhat oily. The flavor mirrors the aroma, the malt tasting more toffee-ish and the alcohol coming on strong in the finish. Nor bad, but not worth searching for.

Crit (3483) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2005
Cloudy gold ,huge thin short lived head.Apricot sweet nose.Oily and tinny, some lasting bitterness in the finish. Harsh alcohol heat. A very poor offering

harrisoni (14693) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2005
Bottle. Label says Tripel Abt which confused me for a bit. Orangey gold colour, with thinnish white head. Nice hop and caramel, typical tripel nose. Slightly yeasty, bit too much carbonation then good hop tang. Extremely drying finish. But overall a nice tripel

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2005
Hazy orange, golden coloured brew. Very nice and complex brew. Fruity and sweet. Definiatly a nice beer.
