madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Off white huge head. Lasting. Has a nice yeast aroma. Spicy, malty and light fruity. Spicy, fruity and malty flavour with a delicate touch of alcahol. Has a nice sweet alcaholbitterness in the end. Nice night cap.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2004
Amber coloured. There is too much yeast in the aroma and in the flavour. The carbonation is too high.

JorisPPattyn (7875) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2004
Slightly hazy amber-orange; slim white head. Faint spicey nose, dried apricots or nuts. Again dried nuts taste (cashew...) dried thymian, coriander, whiff of orange rind. Bit meaty taste as well. Quite light bodied for a triple. I cannot quite believe it’s pure full attenuation. All tastes & flavours are very faint. If this beer misses anything sorely, it’s punch.

Indra (2603) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2004
Fruity, sweet but overall mild aroma, with some light melon and pear, a faint piney spiciness, honeyish malt sweetness and touches of herbal, leafy hop. Medium golden color, rather heavily sedimented (although an attempt was made not to pour all of it), with a creamy, fine and lasting head. Flavor is sweet up front, becoming fruitier (tropical) and finishing with a dash of acidity and faint peppery alcohol. Some lingering yeast esters and sweetness. Light, creamy mouthfeel. Lacking in complexity but reasonably satisfying, nothing is too overdone here. Enjoyable.

igneous1 (1495) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2004
cloudy medium golden with the most particles i've seen in a beer. head is adequate, white and lasting. aroma is heavily spiced, quite fruity, with a yeasty sourness similar to granny smith apples. flavor is also very spicy, and moderately fruity with a warming alcohol mouthfeel. the sourness exhibited throughout, i could do without.

jimhilt (2397) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pours with a two-fingered white head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace but pour slowly there is a ton of chunky bits and with the active carbonation it *looks* like a witch's cauldron. Cloudy amber color. Nose is sweet maybe bready. Starts sweet and crisp, finishes smooth but there is some alcohol in the background.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Orange/gold in colour with a large rocky head. The aroma consists of candy and spices. Flavours are sweet and malty followed by a dull smoothness. Needs more oomph.

TAR (2446) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Golden amber. Dashing layer of dense white foam. Juicy noble hop, table grape, and dried yeast aroma. Gentle perfumey wafts, phenolic esters, melon rind, clover honey, and pale malts. Very sweet and coarsely vinous. Soft, expansive carbonation. Firm body. Assertively malty start, paired with a hint of acidity and flowery tones, walloping powdery malts and dessert apples. Sweet, honeyish, and slightly musty with phenols resurfacing next to a yeasty, malty middle. Finishes boisterously dry and long with a tingly apple skin, perfumey hop combo. Musty and earthy throughout. A tad too sweet and acidic, but it’s very clean, appetizingly dry and chock full of subtleties.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2003
And now something to cheer me up after a absolutely crappy beer and Badger game. Honey color with a cream colored nearly rocky head. Decent lace. Aromas of peaches and other light fruit, mild citrus, cookie dough and spice. Smmoth near oily feel. Light fruity flavors intermixed with a pale malt sweetness. Mild spice and citrus in the finish. An enjoyable light triple.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2003
Light amber color; nice perlage. Rubber nose; later there is an aroma of malt and spices. Thin body, not interesting, light malt; with a too simple finish, a bit oily.
