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 (1624) - 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.

blankboy (7081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- my bottle courtesy of Presario. Pours a hazy gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon and other fruit, some spices and alcohol -- somewhat unique smelling. Flavour follows the aroma but is a bit boozy. Medium bodied. It didn’t do much for me but it’s an O.K. Belgian.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - blankboy’s bottle. Hazy orangey-yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is sweetly spicy and yeasty, lemon zest and alcohol. Taste is similar, a little more lemony and alcoholic - bit of a boozy spicy finish. Average body, slighlty harsh and sticky - nice, a bit too boozy.
