haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2005
Bottled from Sainsbury’s beer ’festival’ 2005. Well, I’m almost impressed, post-Derby festival beer and it’s nearly the best beer of the night (so far). Lovely pale custard body and blossoming white head, bananas on the turn in the nose, catch-in-your-throat dryness tempered by a liquid lemon. Yummy.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2005
Bottle conditioned, from Sainsburys. Hazy gold, good fluffy lasting white head and gentle condition. Slightly tart fruity nose with some background traces of phenols and a hint of yeast, quite astringent in the mouth with low fruity malt and more phenolic character that in an English beer I would call an infection. Dry and yeasty in the finish with some hints of honey sweetness but still a background funkiness that didn’t quite seem right.

Tejas (852) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 Re-rate. Obviously I got a bad initial bottle. Good and very drinkable. Nice summertime blonde ale. A bit spicy. Im not a fan of Belgians but I’d drink this again.

DYCSoccer17 (3228) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2005
2003 Bottle. Barnyard funk with lemon-citrus aromas with hints of corn silage. Bananas are also in there. Slightly sourish aroma. A lot going on in the nose. Hazy yellow=orangish color with fine fizzy white head. Start is slightly citrusy turning to a more roasted subdued maltiness. Frinishes rather roasted and dry. This is very seductive and feels wonderful going down. Very silky and smooth.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2005
Hazy gold with a lasting white head. Medium sweet aroma with some spicy notes. Sweet biscuity malts with a yeasty mid. Spicy finish lingers. Full bodied very smooth. Nice tripel.

A nice surprise with this one. A light, sweet citrus flavor tckles the tongue and relaxes the taste buds. One to savor.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Slightly cloudy, golden with fluffy head and nice lace. Nose is yeasty, lemony, bready, herbal, farmy and hints of peppery spices. Medium bodied, lush feel, grainy malts, alcohol is evident, somewhat acidic/tart, peppery and yeasty. Wish the sweetness of the malts were a little more developed, would have balanced this badboy out. Good brew but the fact its a triple throws me, more a saison?
