SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Not much head when poured. Clear, golden orange appearance with a small white head. Very tangy, orange fruity, bready yeasty, richly fruity aroma. Slightly boozy, bready, almost cloying, sugary, orange citrusy flavor. Noticeable alcohol. Some oxidation which I guess isn’t too surprising, as this bottle is probably two years old. Not horrible but it was way too expensive for the quality.

hopscotch (8907) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle.... Hazy, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The complex nose is spicy and woodsy with lots of grain, coriander phenols and bread... lightly acidic. The flavor is woodsy with moderate pungency, lightly sweet with mild spiciness (coriander phenols). Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes grainy, tangy and dry.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden lightly hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly spicy but with a distinct fruity apple/peach aroma as well. The flavour is lightly fruity with a honeyish sweetness and a bit of herbal character on the back. It’s way too sweet but the malts are fairly authentic. Lightly spicy. It’s okay.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a large, foamy white head and a hazed yellow body. Good lacing. Aroma is alcohol first, with candi sugar, must, pear and pepper following. Taste is sweet with a bit of diacetyl, pear, and alcohol. Good tasting but very hot (alcohol forward). Light bubbles, alcohol on the palate and a dry mouthfeel. This vintage would be stellar with another 3 years of age on it.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Turbid golden pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of funky bready malt, barnyardy hay, tart fruit, hops, and some unwashed female asscrack hints. The flavor was tart, fruity, funky yeasty, with bready malt and finishing hopcitrus. It got pretty tart at the end, approaching a sort of saison/lambic/tripel hybrid.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Sample at Alan’s HSC initation. Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. This beer pours a mostly clear yellow-gold color with a minimal white head that is gone quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast and wheat, plus some tart fruit and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of wheat, sweet honey and sour apple. Yeast is present at times as well. The finish is mildly spiced with a wheaty aftertaste. Decent overall, but honestly not worth the extravagant packaging.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a clear, golden bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Aroma of bready Belgian yeast and some sweet pale maltiness and coriander. Starts lightly pale malty and sweet with a nice balance of coriander spice and black peppery yeast. Exhibits pretty good balance and authenticity. A nice abbey tripel.
