TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Clear gold. Mountainous stark-white foam hugs the glass as it slowly falls. Yeast, rum, banana taffy, apricots, and piecrust malts stream up from the glass. Soft, expansive carbonation. Round, uncooked plantain tartness is chased by an inordinate amount of huskiness and strange artificial banana and vanilla taffy flavors. Very slick, reminiscent of an overripe cantaloupe, and poorly attenuated. Notes of sour apples prevail over the doughy yeast and naan flavors, as candy sugar lends a flash of rummy sweetness. Wet, husky grains last well into the finish, pummeling the more nuanced rose-petal hop vibrancy. Not very pleasant - Looks and feels nice, but the excessive yeastiness interferes with everything else.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2005
33 cl bottle. Golden colour with a very nice white creamy head. Spicy aroma with some sweetness. Very smooth flavour with some bitterness and becomes quite sweet in the finsh.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a huge white head. Aroma has orange peel and spices. Taste is fruity and spicey with a bit of a dry hoppy finish. Strikes me as a bit of a nice and drinkable, session Belgian Ale.

Dorqui (2081) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 31, 2005
Compact and of good persistence foam. Loaded yellow color, dense and hazy. Sour and bitterish scent; light rumors of alcohol and spices. Medium bubbly. Delicate and pleasant taste, not excessive strongly. Balanced and with a long end.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Sample from 330 ml bottle at the Mondial. Lightly hazy-oily gold-blonde with a huge, billowy lasting white head...lovely caramelly-yeasty-earthy nose offering hints of vanilla, honey and sweet lemons...honey-touched in the body, light butterscotch cookies, very creamy and almost a bit cloying, sticky almost to the finish, but quite pleasant and quaffable for me.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
Hazy orange brew. A bit weak and thin. Easy to drink, but too boring for me. Finish is too sweet and not complex enough.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Floral, lavender, vanilla, fruity aroma has some light spicy notes. Clear, deep golden-blonde with a low but lasting white head that laces well. Floral, creamy flavour with pleasant fruity esters and spicy, herbal hop flavour. Decent balance between sweet malts and hop bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

Hazy amber colour with a dense white head. Yeasty and light malty aroma with some fruityness. Malty and yeasty flavor, hints of some orange and a hoppy finish.
