Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAR 2, 2003
Bitter, peppery, cloudy, yeasty, alcoholic. Respectable stong ale but a bit unbalanced, IMO.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 26, 2003
Pale yellow colour, very, very cloudy appearance with big particles of yeast. Good head, quite persistent and creamy. Yeast, orange and vanilla in the aroma. The flavour (quite complex and delicate) is yeasty and spicy with good fruity notes (orange and tangerine). The aftertaste is quite alcoholic and bitter. The alcohol is well hidden.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 5, 2003
Blossoming white head with aromatic notes of corriander spice and sweet orange. A hazy golden hue with a lively carbonation. The orange and corriander are also present in the medium textured body. The finish is hoppy with a touch of sweetness.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 (Best by 19/September/04) Is this beer the high gravity big brother of Hoegaarden white? The nose is big and full of aromas of coriander and fruit. The palate is full and flavorful with a pleasant acidity. I do notice some off flavors associated with pasteurization, but the beer is flavorful enough that it is not a beer killer. Interesting.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2003 The single most pineappley beer I"ve ever had, and I don"t like pineapple. Cloudy, and very sweet. The pepper rescues it for me. Warms up with a little bit more complexity.

thebaron99 (110) - Royston Park SA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2003
Spicy nose with more than a hint of alcohol. Hazy orange with stable head. Citrus/banana notes, and very strong warming alcohol finish that detracts a little from what is an otherwise brilliant beer. Get it up yer
