DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy while watching NFL quarter finals. Hazy dark golden yellow, lackluster head that retains poorly. Aroma is sweet barley candy, almonds, honey, and spices. Flavours of sweet pale malts, dried hay and flowers (chamomile), medium spices. Finish is a tad hot with alcohol. Medium bitterness. Just okay for me.

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours a light yellow gold. Smells sweet and citrusy. Tastes of sweet oranges with light citrus hop notes and ending in a light, but alcoholic Belgian style yeast finish with cloves and vague banana.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. Murky golden orange colour with decent cream coloured head. Some lacing as it falls away. Certainly looks the part. Aromas are very earthy and floral with the yeast, spice and honey showing through. Slightly cloying with a very definate hefeweizen yeast character. Flavours are once again quite sweet with lots of very light caramel and plenty of honey. Spicy / floral hops come through on the end. Not too bad.

BOLTZ7555 (2710) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Murky golden tangerine pour with a candied citrus, orange peel, yeast, and lemon filled nose. Sweet with the alcohol present and a bit distracting...nice spice and apple notes. Medium mouthfeel. Meh.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle (in NZ). A very vinous palate, with a Riesling-like sweetness. So wine-like, in fact, that I had to remind myself I was drinking beer a couple of times.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of wood/cork, alcohol, pear syrup, metal. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A nearly impossible beer to rate. Bottles are all over the place wrt quality and character. I’ve had 4+ bottles, but most are high 2s to mid 3s. Too expensive to gamble with until they make this more reliable.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2010
Fairly clear, bright golden body with lasting head and wisps of lacing. Mild nose, notes of yeast and sugar. Similar in the taste, sweet, candi sugar and pils malt, I don’t really notice the alcohol. Good Tripel though not my best.
