Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2005
This looks like iced tea with a fizzy light brown head. The aroma is mainly some roasted but sweet malts with moderate spicing. Light-bodied, it tastes like the smell with the mild addition of some dried fruits, raisins, dates, etc. Not remarkable, but drinkable.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured beer with a good off-white head. Thea roma is yoghurty fruit with some caramel and toffee. The taste is sugary but also a bit meaty and odd. Reminded me of Abbaye des Rocs. Good full body but something is not quite right in the taste.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
330 ml bottle served in my St Bernadus glass:

A muddled deep amber almost brown hue with a small but lasting fizzy head and good Lace. The aroma has notes of blackberry, orange zest, curacao, cardamom, white pepper, caramel, and earthy yeast esters. Taste starts with a strange combination of sweet fruits and malt along with some twangy sourness and salty nature. Not really sure what to make of it but it seems to work in a wierd way. Gets a bit yeasty and barnyard notes appear on the finish with a final kick of spice. Minor phenolic undertones are present but not distracting. The feel is sort of so-so, doesn’t add or subtract anything from the overall experiance. A okay brew, nothing special but worth a try.
