bierkoning (11147) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Blonde. Dusty, grainy citric aroma. Grainy, alcoholic flavor with apple and citrus. Pineapple in the aftertaste. Tasty enough, but could be better.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2009
75cl bottle from Publix Supermarkets (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy dark amber with a massive white fluffy and foamy white head that settles slowly and heavily laces the glass. Aroma is sweet with notes of lemon and citrus, spice, honey, hint of chocolate and malt. Flavor is sweet and malty with a very smooth character. Notes of honey, caramel, hints of pepper and spice with a well hidden phenol. Generally light-bodied with a slightly sweet finish.

mikkopen (934) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
330 ml bottle. Golden yellow colour, decent-sized white head. Bread-like malty aroma, with some wheat and fruits. Citrus, pear and apple are detectable in the malty flavour. Alcohol warmth and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth but a little thin.

EithCubes (5242) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2008
750 mL swing-top, another for those $11-for-$4 run-out deals from Sahara. Best by 05.28.09. Yeasty, dusty nose with brightly fruity and vaguely woody notes. Highly-carbonated, clear caramel-colored pour with a dense and creamy off-white head. Taste is earthy and primarily yeasty, but gentrified, light citrus and wood with a nice light fruity profile. Little spicy kick from the hops. Dryish with faint caramel. Smooth, dense medium body and a dusty end, well-concealed alcohol but warms gently and has a weighty presence after the pear kicks in. Honey, wheat, light orange rind, pepper, grain, and pale malt base. A lot going on here, and somewhere between a Saison and a bière de garde. Makes me happy.

330 ml bottle. Finland. Golden colour. Very enjoyable aroma. The flavour gets better when the beer gets warmer.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - DEC 23, 2008
A me questa birra è piaciuta, al contrario della Goudale! Mi è piaciuto soprattutto aroma: delicato, dolce, complesso a sufficienza, molto appetitoso fra i migliori nasi che ho potuto notare in bières de garde. La prima parte del sapore è paradisiaca, perché segue precisamente questa impressione olfattiva; ma presto scade in un TERRIBILE metallico che sembra proprio di mangiarsi le chiavi di casa (neanche quelle della macchina che hanno un poco di plastica e il meccanismo). Un vero peccato perché mi ispirava parecchio a parte una certa acquosità. Comunque fra le migliori birre di Gayant.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of yeast and malt. The flavour is malty and yeasty with notes of some fruits and spices. Very creamy mouthfeel. Maybe a bit thin but very drinkable.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a clear golden with a big dense white head that hangs around for a while leaving decent lacing. The aroma is very bready with some toasted grains and corn on top of the subtle Belgian yeast. Maybe some spices in the nose as well. The taste mirrors the aroma with toasted grains and spices along with a little alcohol presence coming through in the finish. There is a sweetness that grows as the beer warms. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean with a slightly dry finish. An interesting beer that didnt stand out in any way for me.
