diabel (1679) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2005
Bottle Yellow, hazy body. White creamy head. Spare lace. Mostly diminshing head. Hoppy-yeasty aroma. Lightly bitter flavour. Very similar to the Saxo Bio - I drunk the two in a horizontal tasting.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6536) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2006 I really like their Nostradamus but so far I have not been at all impressed with the rest of their beers. This one was sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle and poured a straw yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma was sweet and yeasty. The beer was hugely carbonated which I did not care for. The flavor was yeasty, sour tang and dry on the finish. A rather blah offering.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2005
This is a quiet, enjoyable drink - - which surprizes me, with its 8% abv. Hazy yellow with a large frothy head, this has a very fruity aroma, orange, tanderine, peach... Soft in the mouth, this has a pleasant sweet malt flavor mixed with the aforementioned fruit. This finishes on a fruity, spicy, slightly tart note. Nice.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Bottled... Murky, golden ale with a lot of fine, dark sediment. Large, frothy, white head. Decent retention and spotty lacing. Nose of fuzzy fruit, mandarin orange, vanilla and white bread. Sweet, malty, yeasty flavor. Subtle hops. Medium-bodied and very creamy with light carbonation. Sweet, fruity finish.

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Picked this up at the local Trader Joe’s. Cloudy orange color. Poured an enormous head which took forever to come down. Smells of pears. Sweet initial flavor with slightly bitter aftertaste.

Frank (3952) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2005
She’s a gusher, this one, so watch out. Hazy orange, slight white head. Nose of tart apple, pear and baby powder. Rather light bodied with frisky carbonation. Rather dry with a slight mineral character and a touch of bitterness in the finish.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle. Dark yellow color with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet malty with yeast. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast and a slightly dry hoppy end. Nice Belgian Blonde.

heemer77 (5288) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Large white head. A light gold, slightly cloudy body. The taste is orange peel zest with some hints of corriander and white bread. Motuhfeel is smooth and silky. Tastes of pears with a spicy nutmeg and clove finish. This also has a slightly dry woody character.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Very lively beer with hazy orange-yellow color and witth very big white head. It has light aroma’s of malts and honey and fine accents of tropical fruits and mango chutny. This beer also has a slight lemony sharpness in the nose. The taste is light malty, bready, with touches of cookie’s, honey, tropcal stonefruits some spices and faint lemon accents.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Golden Yellow with a thick head sustained on top. The aroma is grassy, with a little bit of lemon and clove. The flavor is somewhat pequilar. It is sweet, then a bit bitter. A solid offering for a belgian session ale.
