auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 20, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Distant cirrus clouds scrape the landscape of this ruby amber pour, topped copiously with an airy soap of banana. Aroma is distinctly belgian with wild fruit and a faint gentle run of diacetyl and fusels. Fresh grain heads and moist nut bread. Flavor is subtle and gentle, with complex muddled fruit running down a stream of light cream and cranberries. Some vague vinous qualities and estery runs of banana and figs, that follow a general thin bodiedness. A hint of alcohol thickens and warms. Malt doesn’t bludgeon you into submission, almost sessionable. A hint of gray salt and some waterness slides the palate downward. Interesting belgian take, but lacks some body and fullness.

Pours a deep brown with a thick white head that lasts and lasts. A very nice sweet beer with brown sugar and caramel along with some alcohol burn and enough hops to give it some bite. I was very happy to get the opportunity to try this one.

pivo (2622) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2005
This is one that you’ve had and always assumed rated, so it was a surprise to have not found it on my list. Toffee nose, slightly woody, but mostly yeast - very sweet aromas. Mahogany color, foamy beige head. Caramelly malt base, vanilla, maple syrup, dainty dry end. Some cinnamon spiciness. Fully body, smooth and real classy. Fabulous.

Gorbalev (2995) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Split a big bottle this with my wife at Volo. Dark brown, big beige head - looks nice in appropriate glassware. Aroma of spicy malt, but it is subtle. Mouthfeel is medium but well carbonated. Taste featured more spicy malt, but with more a dark fruit and floral characteristic than what I was expecting. Alcohol is there. A really wonderful beer.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 like drinking a brown ale off a cowboy’s leather saddle. farmyard fresh wheat fields and sticky sweet honey. pous opaque brown with a giant billowing head. head tasted like delicious beer whipped cream.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2005
A malty sweet and sour aroma for this one. Rusty red body, tan fizzy head. Funny the head as it disipated made a sound as if you just lit a firecracker. Glad the glass didn’t blow up. Medium bodied brew with some mild bitterness and medium sweet and sour flavor. Smooth on palate alcohol hardly noticable.
