Ernest (6151) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 750mL bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, most lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with light notes of lemon zest, pepper, and Juicy Fruit gum. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A good, clean, strong golden ale. Nothing flashy or adventurous here, but for a strong golden ale it’s exceptionally clean smelling/tasting and frighteningly quaffable (amazingly well-hidden alcohol). Would easily put this up against nearly any 9-11% Belgian golden...some may have more exciting aromas, but few are so elegant and efficiently put together.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2003
Pours a huge head that disappears slowly. Slightly hoppy, slowly aroma. Hoppy and flowery flavor, just a bit citric. Long very hoppy finish. I like the complex flavor much better as the aroma.

caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color. Creamy, rocky lasting head. Tiny particles floating around. Aroma of sour yeast, doughy, spices, coriander, orange. Bit blond taste, not triple-like. Hoppy. Acidic palate.

pivo (2544) - GERMANY - JAN 2, 2003
Also very good, but not as great at the Malheu 12% (see rating). Sour dough-like nose. Hazy pale blond color and a lacy head. Juice-like tastes up front yielding to a fresh hoppiness in the end. Thinish, but a high quality beer.

YogiBeera (2446) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Fruity orange aroma. Nice orange color with hints of green, leggy. Taste intervalls between hops and orange. Light bitter aftertaste. Nice.

omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2002
Bottled. Pale orange and hazy. Rich complex orangey hops and apricot in the nose. Sweet, but strikingly hopy. Peppery with lovely depth and a lingering bitter finish. Real classy!

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Very effervescent, to the extent that it gets in the way of the flavor a bit. Alcohol is somewhat harsh, as is the bitter spiciness, almost like a spicy lemon rind or some such. There is a decent sweet malt flavor under there, but I think it might take a bit of aging before this could be a really well-rounded beer.

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2002
This one is pretty carbonated too. Creamy head lasts and lasts. Melons, oranges, other fruit in the aroma. Spicy crisp finish. Can taste this in the finish of the Brut.

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2002
Nicely flavored, drinkable ale. Pours with a creamy head and an opaque, banana peel yellow color. Not as fragrant as some others (mine was past its ’best by’ date and probably lost alot of hoppiness). Sweet, juicy fruit taste w. very discernible alcohol presence. Notes of pears and vanilla. Finished crisply. Some mustiness which didn’t blend that well with the overall character of this beer, i.e. a hint of staleness.

scowlzineamg99 (8) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 3, 2002 does not count
Ok, I’m a sucker for big yeasty blondes, and there isn’t much better than a fresh Malheur 10. Blonde, with a strong honey aroma and taste, combined with a strong complex yeast and a little peppery spice in the finish. If not stored well, it deteriorates quickly - so don’t judge this beer too harshly if consumed far from its home.
