At Smokeless Joeís. Grainy though it is a plant. Good yeast and a plant beer, farmhouse aroma, abundant yeast and a unique Belgium. Smooth though drying finish

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2006
Aroma of wheat and malt, opaque yellow, tiny white head. Soft malt flavour, slightly wheat as well, not a trace of spice. Light bodied, sweet. Ordinary.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Cloudy orange beer with a white head. Malty and grainy sweet aroma with a faint yeasty note. Weid harsh earthy aroma, I guess thats where the roots come in... strange beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
a sim rate: (bottled from Ramsgate Brewery) Smells just like tamales! Very corn aroma. Very sweet and overly tart. Very metallic in the first taste. Nothing special about it.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2005
A hazy light orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and slightly spicy, while the flavor also haas notes of yeast and fruit, leading to a dry end. Very Belgian in style, despite that the bottle states it is inspired by south american brewing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle: Clear gold with a large, lasting white head. Aroma is lightly malty and grainy, with a big spicy hit at the finish. Flavour is well, crap. Quite dry, with a strange vegetable like start and a metallic finish. Thin in body and crap.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Golden with a small, creamy head. Lightly malty nose. The flavours are - to say the least - extraordinary! Dirt? Potato water? Or the drink I once had in Fiji made from Kava roots - yes thatís it. This is a Kava beer.... 240705

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
Smells like cleanser. Hardly any flavor. But what is there is neither malty nor hoppy. And I donít know what quinua tastes like, but if this is it, Iíll avoid it in the future.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Sourish and earthy nose. Yellow body, wtih a small white head. Flavor taste like eating a handful of dirt, potato water, really gross. These Mongozo beers are some of the daftest beers ive ever encountered!
