BeerandBlues2 (12056) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark yellow with a large, rocky, white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw), average hops (flowers, perfume), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of apple and grapes. Medium bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2009
330 ml bottle. Clear orange beer with some yeast flakes and soapy and vanishing head. The aroma is sweet and malty. Tofft and some alcohol. Nice grassy and slightly herbal hops. The flavor is very sweet, fruity (fresh perry) and generously malty. Like malt liqueur. Some alcohol and light bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium to full bodied and somewhat oily. Sticky bitterness in the finish that is quite unfresh.

thornecb (5456) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head recedes to hug rim leaving spot lacing. Citrus hop and caramel aromas. Sweet upfront with sharp caramel and a lasting, dry Belgian yeast finish.

Boutip (5862) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of dry malt with some traces of DMS. Taste is also dominated by notes of DMS with some lightly sweet caramel malt notes. No spices or ester form the yeast are really noticeable and DMS is a bit too omnipresent. Medium body with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol.

thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Decent belgian style beer. Golden in color and nice rich thick tan head. Tastes slightly fruity and maybe a little oaked. Interesting beer.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle from the Binny’s in Plainfield, IL: It poured a clear, deep golden body with a tall head that collapsed and vanished quickly, leaving a film and lots of lacework on the glass. It had an aroma of honey covered crusty white bread and a touch of pears. Medium-light bodied, it had a honmey and pale malt sweetness with a light citric tartness and a mild spiciness. The sturdy alcohol content remains well hidden until it hits the veins. Very drinkable.

beeR (61) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2009
33 cl bottle. Clear golden pour, white fluffy head. Spicy and honey aroma, a little citrusy and sweet fruity. Sweet and malty flavour, followed by alcoholic warmth and a medium-full body. Final feeling almost doughy

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 8, 2009
In the 750 mL flipcap bottle from Beertopia. Pours dark gold with a thick frothy white dense head. Has a yeasty ozone-like aroma! Extremely sweet like nectar water spiked with sugar and honey. This finishes surprisingly tart for such a sweet beer. Medium thick body with a very rich mouth feel for such a light-looking beer. Very palatable, but has some lingering alcohol heat in the back of the mouth.
