Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Decent sized head with light carbonation. Hazy orange in color. Sweet fruity aroma of spiced apples, apricots and floral hops. Very light flavor. Dry and fruity with a slight bitterness. Dry palate which puckers the tongue. I expected more from this.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Got some floaters going on...fine-bubbled head, slowly dimishing, off-white. Aroma vanilla ice cream, slight grassiness, some...figs/dates. Taste: wow diacetyl and acidic bite, some sweetness. Butter toffe/caramel, *barely* dry finish. Okay as a....what is it, anyway? Tastes a bit similar to that buttery O-fest I had a few hours ago.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2005
750 ml bottle. Poured a medium, hazy orange color with a white head. Aromas and tastes of fruits, yeast, caramel, and citrus (oranges). Light alcohol in the taste.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Poured a hazy copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Musty aroma of various fruits (apples, citrus), yeast, and a light caramel maltiness. Very fruity, citrus, apples, pears, sweet caramel maltiness, and a lightly bitter finish. Light alcohol was noticed as well.

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Beer pours cloudy light brown in color with a nice off white head. Aroma is restrained malt with light hoppiness and a dash of yeast. Flavor is yeast with a nice restrained hoppiness. Great thanks to Legion242 for sharing.

Nuffield (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Hazy, orange amber (quite attractive), good, somewhat loose lacing, fading fast. Aroma of pepper and caramel. I had three flavor impressions, flowing in order with a second or two between each: 1) yeast! 2) bubblegum 3) bitter finish (hello hops)! Quite an interesting beer. Not as deep in flavor as it might have been. (750ml bottle shared by Legion242--thanks!)

Cloudy orange color; Head dissapated quite quickly. Nice malt nose. Resembles the FT in only the famous "biscuit" profilr. Nice effervesence. More malt later in glass. Pepper and malt. Very nice. As it warms, hops raise their hands and say "present".
