Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2004
Golden and cloudy color, big white head. Fruity, pretty mild aroma for 10%. Flavor is also fruity with some apple in there, alcohol comes up somehow. Strong alcohol makes body to be full. Little bit of too alcoholic for my taste. Nice lace.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Pours a highly effervescent gold bosy underneath a big, foamy white head. Aroma very bready and yeasty, with some spice and bubblegum as well. Flavor is well-balanced, with an initial malty sweetness followed by bitter, flowery hops. Even for a 10%er, the alcohol is quite noticeable. Finishes dry and peppery.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Appearance: amber/red color, full rocky white head, and plentiful highly bubbling carbonation. Head retention is good and it has a sticky lace. Aroma: malty, fruity, bubblegum, spicy, astringent and a light grassy aroma hop. Initial whiff is similar to a wee heavy. Taste and mouthfeel: a sweet start with a medium body and creamy. A light well balanced hop bitterness that finishes peppery, crisp and fresh. IMHO: I like this beer. It is well balanced and maintains a good balance of flavors and mouthfeel throughout. Complex, but not overwhelming.

jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Lots of head in the pour. Taste is a little sharp at first but after the first couple sips goes down very smoothly. Leaves a very nice aftertaste

Kevin (2103) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 tan color with a fluffy white head. aroma of alcohol and prune or raisin. bitter smoked spicy fruit flavor. has a peppery note that melds well with a chewy earthy finish.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Bottle. Thick dense head. Nose has alot of malt, banana, and some wheat. Taste is spicy with some anise, black pepper, banana, and clove. On a sweetness scale of 1-10, this gets a seven. Very gassy. Finish is like the taste, but with a brown liquid sugar bite. This isnít my cup of tea. Or beer for that matter.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Yeasty and orange aromas, sweet smelling. SLides over the tongue, sweet, and hangs on the tongue for a bit, with just a hint of sharpness on the back of the mouth. Starts with a large head, dissipating into a small head that sticks to the glass. Dark gold in color, very slightly cloudy.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Pours a translucent lemony gold with a VERY fluffy white head. Smells strongly of wheat and malt, and has that slightly pungent/sweet scent that champagne yeasts tend to leave behind. Buttery sweet and flowery on the tongue with just a sting of hoppiness, and an alcoholic afterbite.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2004
Golden with large head. Sweet, cereals, little grassy, alcohol. Full and sticky mouthfeel.
