TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Draught at Night of the Funk ’07. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a thin white head. Nose is fruity and very clean with hints of brett. Flavor tastes more like a regular belgian golden ale--no brett noted. Pretty good, but expected a bit more funk.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2007
Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Nice aroma of lemon, spices and yeast. Solid flavor of spices, lemon and yeast, it’s dry in the finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Very good, it feels a lot like a tripel.

Bottle shared with mds, HogTownHarry, blankboy and tupalev - HogTownHarry’s bottle. Slightly hazy light golden colour. Aroma of tropical fruit with sharp wheat and lemon notes. Crisp body. Flavour of fruit and wheat - starts OK, but gets too boozy as it warms.

beerbill (3539) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2007
750 ml bottle dated April 2007, #045. Pours a hazy dull gold with a long-lasting white head that left no lacing. Pleasant aroma of wheat and yeast. The flavor is again wheat and a bit of yeast. Dry at the finish. An ok beer, but given the special bottling, I was expecting more.

hazy pale yellow, light sweet spicy aroma, rich malt flavor, nice fruityness, well balanced with a yeasty bitterness (yeast shot?),

lighter bitterness than the prior sample but still a prevalent and building character, finally after warming a sweetness emerges and the bitterness receeds, a light tartness shows as well,

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2007
(Bottle #1626 - Apr 07) Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow body with a thin, white head. Smell: Aroma of toasted wheat crackers, sour lemons, and spicy hops. Taste: Pale wheat flavor with a light sweetness. Hint of lemon zest. The taste of the Saaz really shines out, though there’s only a mild bitterness throughout. Noticeable Belgian yeastiness. Finishes bready and dry. The alcohol really begins to creep in as it warms. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It’s fine for a beer of intertwined styles.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Pours a hazy golden bronze with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of pale biscuity Belgian malt and some earthy coriander and yeastiness. Starts with decent viscosity and nice sweet biscuity malt with some citrusy balance and earthy bitterness toward a fairly full bready finish. A pretty interesting double witbier.
