Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
LCBO giftpack. Orange pour with red hints. Big fluffy white head - very thick. Lots of big chunks floating around as well. Strong yeast aroma - hint of alcohol and light malt. Nice medium silky mouthfeel. Taste is quite pleasing too - yeast, lots of light malt and a hint of spice. Quite simple and enjoyable.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Rather an uninteresting drink - tasty, but uninteresting. Hazy amber orange with an off-white head that vanishes rapidly, it has a sweet malt aroma filled with yeast and a touch of citric tartness. Light and foamy in the mouth, the flavor is sweet malt, yeast, white peppers, and sour orange. It finishes on a tart, refreshing note. Good, but uninteresting.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Clear orange gold color with a thick, diminishing, frothy offwhite head, lines of small bubbles go forcefully upwards. Nice aroma of yeast, cheese, pepper and citrus. The flavor is mostly sweet with notes of yeast,cheese, pepper and citrus. The body has a medium thickness with an oily texture and prickly carbonation. Interesting beer but it feels like there’s something missing or that some elements should be more forcefull.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Poured slighlty cloudy orange-gold with a huge creamy-foamy white lasting head, nice drapes of lacing. Aroma of banana,apple, sugary malt, pepper, yeast - slightly grainy, almost sour-vegetal as it warms up. Taste is peppery and lively, but a little metallic, not much fruit, malt seems minerally - mouthfeel is slightly thin, very lively, bitterly mineral. Unremarkable thin average commercial belgian strong.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2005
Bottle from Bière du Boucanier giftpack - purchased at LCBO. Pours a golden-amber colour with a massive shaving cream head that formed a bizarre marshmellow-shaped formation in the middle that grew to about an inch above the egde of the glass. Once it settled, I poured the rest of the bottle and got a lot of floaties. Aroma is fairly yeasty, with some notes of apricot and citrus, and a spicy finish. Flavour profile is quite similar, with a nice dry finish. Pretty decent stuff.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
Pours light gold/amber with lots of sediment in suspension. Thin white head. Nose of yeast and tropical fruit with significant orange/tangerine. More of the same in the flavour. Lots of tangerine and pepper. Soapy coriander perfume. Sharp citus with a little berry tart. Some cut grass. Crusty rye bread. Some adjunct butterscotch flavours are kind of unpleasant. Gassy. Although really sweet it does finish fairly dry.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Bottle courtesy of Matta. Pours a dirty cloucy orange with huge white head made of tiny bubbles. Aroma is full of bready yeast, with some orange zest and faint spiciness to it. Flavor dominated by the chewy breadlike yeastiness. Citrus is nonexistant in the flavor. Finishes very biscuity dry. As it warms a little alcohol shows up.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a rocky white head, with a fruity, spicy coriander note, candied orange peels, and yeasty aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet malty and fruity charecter, spicy, yeasty, note of candied fruits, like oranges, leading towards a smooth sweet alcoholic and a faint bitter finish.
