MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Nice white wine like aroma. Large dense white head with good staying power. Crystal clear golden color. Smooth with an interesting tangy flavor. Its almost like a malty tasting mild champagne. This gets high marks for its unique qualities.

GregClow (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
Pours a nice clear gold with a HUGE marshmellow head. Aroma of tart green apples, yeast and alcohol. Highly fizzy mouthfeel. Thin tart flavour with a bit of malt, sliding into a bitter hop finish with a bit too much alcohol coming through. Gave me a Barney-style belch after almost every mouthful.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2002
Banana/apple yeast aroma. Crystal clear golden-yellow colour with thin yet towering and stable white head. Thin bodied, mettalic tasting. I can’t stress the thinness enough. Flavour is on the sweet side. Not substantial enough for me.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2002
Mountainous Head. Aroma has a sharp bite to it. Dry in taste. Very sharp and spicy yet smooth. Very fine brew.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2007 Rating #1 Bottle (6 3 5 3 13). Medium golden color, slightly hazy, with a white head. The nose has citrus and white wine character. The flavor is sweet, dry, and tangy. Rating #2 Bottle (6 3 6 3 13). A hazed golden color with a white head. A citrus (light orange), pepper and floral aroma. A light apple fruit finish.

aracauna (3052) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2002
Big head, but not out of control. Bright golden body writhes with steaming bubbles. Aroma is Juicy Fruit, lemon peel and a time bit of spice. The flavor is slightly tart. Unlike most triples, you can actually taste the dry, hay-like malt. Usually yeast byproduct flavors overwhelm the malt. The finish is dry and short. The flavor is a bit mild but bright and easy drinking. The mouthfeel has a distinct bite to it.

TAR (2449) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 To all the wine snobs out there, here you go. Like a fine cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay and dry champaigne, very acidic and wine-like. Dry and zingy with a spicy twist. Beautiful head just like the picture shows.
