Sammy (8675) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
A nice blond with some hoppiness, but nothing extraordinaire. Funky yeasty aromas. Very yellow body with some white head. A tad below average mouthfeel for the style. Drinkable.

Dull gold, creamy white head. Biscuity malt, spice, stone fruit and mild orange aroma. Quite prominent alcohol. Taste is only mildly sweet with some light grass and spice hops. Bitter and slightly astringent finish. Not terribly involving.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Faint cottony nose, much more mild than I expected from the label. sunny yellow gold, muddied after poured on the lees, rocky dollops of creamy white head. golden biscuit malt, little stubborn herbal bite, creamy body in the finish. seriously lacking in the flowery bitterness I was anticipating.

Pours orange yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, a little peach, some cinnamon. Flavor is fruit, bread, some yeast. Ok.

Sammer (1042) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Hazy, wheat beer type pour from bottle at Flying Saucer in Houston, TX. Nose was bananas and some spice. Taste was warm and slightly fruity, hiding the alcohol well. Nice touch by hot girl serving the beer, as after she poured it in my glass, she rolled the bottle on her thigh to get the remaining hoppy suds at the bottom and poured this in to a shot glass. She said they called this a "hop bomb" and only did it with certain beers. Tasted great and was fun to drink. What more can a guy ask for?

Bottle. Slightly hazy orangeish golden pour with a large, foamy white head that lasts ages. Aroma is fairly sweet and has notes of citrus, honey, yeast and grassy hops. Flavour is very similar but less sweet, with some sourness coming through in the citrus, some pronounced bitterness from the hops and a subtle metallic undertone. Light, dry mouthfeel with high carbonation and a medium to short bitter finish. Less sweet and more hoppy than a lot of golden Belgian strong ales but otherwise not particularly noteworthy; quite easy to drink however.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Pour is hazed dark yellow with a big fluffy white head...smell is sweet and lightly fruity with apricot, sweet breads, and caramel...taste is grainy and cereal sweet with a faint cardboardy note...finish is cloying and sticky...

SHIG (3590) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle swing-top: Poured a dirty brown with a huge carbonated head. Aroma is sour citrus fruit. Bitter metal hops and sweet caramel malt, very strange mix, but seems to work.

DocLock (7871) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle from Craft. Pours gold w huge fluffy white head. Nose is pale malty and hoppy, with some florals. Tastes rock syrupy malty, with hops, citrus, dry florals. Palate is lively, hoppy, floral, somewhat funky, citric, and gets even drier late. Reminds me a bit of a lighter version of LA Chouffe Houbbelein.
