750ml bottle. Poured light amber/gold with a huge foamy white head. Aromas of honey, banana, bready malt, and citrus with a trace of mustiness in the background. Flavor of sweet pound cake malt and fruit with an ample amount of spice (coriander). Finished peppery with some more of that musty character. A bit of a wet rag aftertaste. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad, though I’ll probably pass it by in the futrue.

SteC (140) - Oostende, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2007
This beer stood in my storage for a long time. By the time I drank it, it was 7 months over date. I tried it expectiong nothing, and this idea appeared to be confirmed when I opened it. A bread-yeast aroma came out, which I have never smelled before while opening a beer. So I thought this was the end of the exercise. Also the head disappeared fast. But when I tasted it, it was an utter surprise to me. The taste went from fruity to clearly acid-bitter. Wow, what a surprise. The body of this beer was very un-blond, and more orange hazy.

ABUSEDGOAT (2539) - California, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Clear orange with a small head, below average lacing and retention. Aroma is spiced with coriander and oranges, and has notes of hops, lighter fruits. Flavor brings this with a light sweetness and ends with a dry finish with light alcohol. Enjoyable.

Aroma throws alcohol at you, buttery notes put me off however yeasty fruity spicey lemon comes through to redeam itself a bit. Taste goes on a similar journey, though buttery throughout, The brune is stupidly better.

750 split two ways. Hazy golden in appearance with a medium to large white head. Aroma is spicy and fruity, with citrus notes and some ethanol. Taste is the same, with a spicy, and alcohol warming finish.

oh6gdx (24607) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Bottled. hazy yellow colour with mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is spices, hops and fruits. Flavour is yeast, alcohol, slight wheat and fruits. A bit harsh, but at the sametime the sweetness balances it up. A weird one...

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Big floral nose with some grapefruit, some musk and some peach. Pours cloudy pale gold with quickly dissipating head. Flavour is fresh and slightly tangy with herbs and spice developing into a slightly astringent but generally pleasing long finish. A Cate Blanchett of blondes.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Hazy, golden pour with average white head. Sweet aroma that is filled with spice and yeast — clove, coriander, alcohol and a hint of ripe fruit. And then there is the note of medicine behind all this that also shows up in the flavor which is moderately sweet and slightly bitter at the end. Medium body and somewhat watery texture. The taste and aroma improved dramatically as the temperature rose above 55 degrees.
