Tranquillity (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2008
Bottled, thanks to FatPhil for providing a poor student with this expensive bastard. Smells a bit soapy, with fresh forest or grass. Flowers, sticky. Hazy orange, thick white head. Taste dry, orange and lemon. Very bubbly.

On tap at Max’s. Light amber pour. Nice sweet hoppy aroma with lots of grain. Sweet taste with spice. Nice dry hoppy finish. I liked it.

Nice Belgian. Pours a cloudy darkish yellow (K says it’s a little green) Some good fruit flavor with a bit of a metallic hint. Pours with a short lasting fluffy white head that disappears almost immediately. Nice Belgian although I will agree twith others who have noted that it’s a bit sweet.

The pour is a nice hazy straw, with an ample white head. The nose is freshly cut grass, yeast with hints of sugars and floral tones. The flavor is that of honey, light sugars and wonderfully balanced. A great Golden ale.

375. Capped. Pours a cloudy and massively particulate orange-amber with a huge, rocky platinum blonde head. Lots of stiff egg-white-y lacing coming down the sides. Big sweet candi sugar, floral, grassy nose. Light crackers underneath a heavy dose of honey, grass, and floral notes on the mid-palate as well. Long raw sugar finish. Nice stuff, but the sweetness get a bit overpowering here and there--overall, it’s under control, but still a lotta sugar and definitely not an all the time thing.

Big aroma of fruit and spice wafting across the room. Pours a clear golden color with some weird suspended particles and carbonation. Flavor is big malt and banana. Leaves you with some sweetness at the end.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2008
Bouteille verte de 750 ml. Arômes de levure et d’épices. Robe dorée, belle effervescence. Goût citronné prononcé, équilibré par les épices et la levure. Arrière-goût de houblon et d’alcool. Une bière très bien équilibrée.

agl108 (1039) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2008
750 mL bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured slightly hazy dark gold. Fluffy white head that left mild streaks of lace. Yeasty and peppery. Fruity as well with citrus and coriander undertones. Have had this several times before, suprised I hadn’t rated it.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 750ml bottle. Pouring this into my tulip, I see a cloudy, murky golden amber beer with a light and well-carbonated pillar of fluffy head sitting on top. Little to no lacing in the glass. The aroma is citrus and some sweet sugary treats. All kinds of spices. Stings a bit, but certainly enjoyable. An interesting taste starts this brew off. Artisan bread prepared in a distinctly European street corner bakery in the market. Raw, spicy, grainy, wooden, and enjoyable. Loses a bit of that unique touch as the beer warms up, though. A little hoppy, but nothing overwhelming; in fact it’s welcome. Very smooth on the palate. Watery. Drinkable despite the undetectable 8%. Warming and comforting after sitting for a bit.

Sweet aroma with a touch of yeast. Taste, less yeasty (a good thing to me), some herbal notes, sweet but with a dry finish. Served a bit too cold at a local bar, too bad
