Clear yellow coloured, with some yeasty flakes in it. Heavy carbonation and a huge white head. Yeasty herby aroma, little alcoholic nose. Full bitter carbonated body. Finish is bitter, little burning alcoholic, ending more dry. Strong yeasty beer.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Bronze ale with a wheaty-nutty aroma. Big foamy head. Too light and alcoholic to be anything but average. Not surprisingly, the foil-topped bottle is reminiscent of the Delirium line available in the States. This is a not-as-good relative.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Light gold, with a massive loose white head. The aroma is like a heavy wheat beer, with notes of pears and lemons. The body is light and thin, with a bit of alcohol in the finish which is hidden in the aroma. I can’t get over how light this beer tastes. Perhaps its the room temperature (80F) that the beer is.

haukur (1665) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 16, 2006
extremely weird aroma, very very spicy, not something I can put a finger on, but something sticks out which I cant quite say what. Sort of good, but sort of uncomfortable. Golden color, small head, very yeasty and spicy with an alcaholic bite. Avarage triple

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle shared with Blankboy, Hogtown Harry, and Dave, courtesy of Blankboy. Light yellow, big white head. Wonderful yeast, lemon, and alcohol in aroma. Taste is Ok but a little bland: spicy, sharp, lemon zest, yeast, very dry. Alcohol is present. Nice standard style stuff.
