Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Bottle: Murky orange with a brown edge under a softly falling tiny-bubbled large white head, lemon, coriander, light citrus and light flowers, rich earth in the aroma, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel, subtle carbonation, starts lightly bitter, ends lightly sour, aftertaste is bitter. Very good beer for pounding.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 Over carbonated. Spicey with a lime sourness. I drank this a couple weeks ago and forgot to log it here. Will rate again. Holy crap this thing smelled like rotton eggs.

The carbonation on my bottle was going nuts. I had to pour off at least 12oz to stop it from coming out of the top of the bottle. Pours orangish, with off-white head. Earthy spice and hops in the nose. Fairly smooth with tastes to match the nose.

MrBunn (2573) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Wow! Carbonation on top of carbonation! Massive head and a bottle that overflows with bubbly right after openeng. Color is a deep dark honey with quite a bit of suspended stuff floating around. Scents of yeast and spices that I haven’t quite figured out... a little soapy. Honey sweetness is definitely present, with bit of clean citrus in the background. Spices are strange in that the are detectable more right upon opnening and then very faintly in the finish, but I’ll be dipped if I can figure out what they are. Maybe some chamomille? Enjoyable, but a little thin.

If a gueze was what they were after on this one then they succeeded. Low carbonation, musty yeasty palate with a definite pronounced dryness. While refreshing, I felt this brew lacked the complexity to garner such a high rating.

Hazy dark yellow color with big light tan head. Aroma is very musty, notes of honey, vinegar, oak, leather. Flavor is acidic, slightly malty, touch of honey and herbal hops.

pineypower (2736) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Pours out a somewhat cloudy light orange color with a lot of carbonation and a very nice silky head. Silky clean mouthfeel. Aroma is somewhat spicy with some notes of yeast. Taste has some fruit with some very nice notes of wood and a finish of a bit of hops and some earthy feel. Very solid beer

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours a coppery orange with good sized foamy white head. Aroma is a bit grainy with citrus. Taste is fruity with spices and a nice floral finish. Nice beer, but I didn’t think as much of it as some did. I will re-try it someday.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Thanks Phil (Philip)! This beer has a very interesting and unique aroma and taste. The aroma consists of the fragrances: lime, hops, wheat, butter, citrus, and slight menthol notes. It is a cloudy bronze colored solution with a thick off-white head that fades leaving heavy lacing. This moderate bodied beer has a smooth and sweet disposition. The flavors of hops, pine, and lime can be detected. This beer exits the mouth leaving a lime/citrus taste lingering.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly diminished, transparent, no visible carbonation, and a golden hue. Nose was oranges, sweet, spicy, and some alcohol notes. Flavor was sweet, lightly bitter, dry, oranges, and to a point astringent. Tingly, fizzy palate. Light-medium body.
