A nice inviting brown beer with lots of chuncky yeast floating in it. Deep in flavour and colour, nice thin white head, alcohol, cinamon, cloves, yeast, sugars, tiny bubbles, its an experience.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2006
0.330L bottle. Light amber color with almost no head. Initially the aroma is light and seems tart and maybe a bit sour. As it warms the aroma becomes apples and grapes. First sip is an explosion of flavors with tart apple-fruitiness, brown sugar and some spice. I can’t pin down which spice. Later I get a yeast flavor that mixes with what seems like a floral hoppiness. At times it seems the flavor is a little champagne-ish with tart fruitiness. Tasty but the cornucopia of flavors don’t totally work for me.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 27, 2006
(330 ml bottle (best before end 6/08) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/wells/tul target=blank>Tully’s) Sugary malt and banana...Pours a cloudy brownish amber with a finger of soft foamy biscuit head that stays well. Nice looking beer. Aroma is fruitiness, banana, candyish malt and yeast. Mouthfeel light but full, maybe a bit dry. Good lacing. Flavor is the fruit and banana along with some candyish malt sweetness. Alcohol well-hidden (only a hint). Pretty tasty.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle @ Volo. Pours slight haze, brown in colour. Some amber-ruby light shown. Fine minimalist head (3+) Flavours characterized by sweet brown malts, high dose of clean refined alcohol that seemed to be harsher at finish. Sipper.

This beer is all about malt. I picked this up at a great discount. The four pack is close to its best by date, but it was stored on a bottom shelf. I do think there might be an infection because there is some sourness in the flavor. But the malt is still there. The aroma is sweet malt and some rotting fruit. Flavor is more sweetness, some sour flavor that doesn’t taste bad but also doesn’t seem to fit, and sugar. Light brown but opaque and a nice head.
