Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 23, 2006
0.33l bottle bought at a store in Split
Poureda golden colour, with a big thick, firm white head that collapsed at a medium to slow pace, leaving tons of lacing. Almost fizzy at first. The nose is quite nice at first, coriander and malt dominate it. It’s a bit herbal (hops probably), orange peel and some dusty/yeasty hints. The taste starts off grainy, with a pleasant sweetish background, weak hints of hops and some even weaker lemony acidity, noticable metal, weak apple, some oiliness. Didn’t impress me much. Hapkin, by the same brewery is much nicer. Smooth, and kinda pleasant, but the flavour profile just isn’t good enough to keep me interested.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Clear yellow color with medium head that diminished quickly but didn’t fade away completely. Some spotty lacing. Malty aroma. Taste is sweet in the beginning and citric and spicy in the middle and end. Pleasant long, spicy-sweet aftertaste. Nice ale.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2006
Deep yellow coloured beer with an explosive white foam. Nose is dry malty and has a refreshing accents of frech fruits and minty herbs. The taste is on de dry side but has a mild touch of slight bitter fruits. In the finale there is a interesting bitterness of hops and herbs. This is a verry strong tasting blond beer with a long finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2006
From the bottle this poured a pale amber body with a respectable head that performed some interesting spotty lacing. The nose is rich with sweet malts, aged peaches, and fresh apples. Quite a thick mouthfeel to it and somewhat oily. The flavor is rife with sharp malt, pineapple, fresh peaches, and a touch of alcohol. Near the end a citrus zest bitterness emerges that lasts long into the finish. Very nice.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2006
How do the Belgians do it?? One of the best conditioned beers I’ve ever sampled from a can (sinister, witch’s hat-black, 500cl). Silky smooth, lagery gold body topped with perfectly circular, mould-like clumps of lace. Head still there a good hour after the pour (the beer’s). Intensely sweet, peachy-pineapple fruity nose with a hint of woody dryness. The taste is more of the same- smooth, syrupy fruit and a surprisingly delicate spiciness (clove, coriander). Barely a trace of booze or hops. But I’m not complaining. A little sticky by the half-litre, but a pleasantly fruity Belgian ale.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Shared with biegaman, his bottle. Poured clear light gold with a small white diminishing head. Aroma of booze, funky herbal hops, light sweet candyish malt and some yeast - a little rough, but not bad. Taste - apple, yeast, sweet malt, alcohol and light herbal hop bitterness - decent. Weak body, slick, sticky and fairly flat, boozy finish - a tad disappointing, really.
