3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear gold with some white head. Aroma is very sweet, fruity, grainy, a little musty, and a touch of spiciness. I was really digging on this aroma for some weird reason. Sweet grainy flavor, with some notes of bubblegum and vanilla, but not like a typical belgian. Medium smooth chewy body with low carbonation. Alcohol on the finish leaves ya feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Lots of tasty alcohol at a low price. Nice job.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy yellow pour with light white foam and lacing. Slightly malty aroma without major spice notes. Smooth mouth feel and the high alcohol content only hits you in the aftertaste. Relatively bland, but it does make you feel warm all over.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright, deep amber-gold with little head, short-lived. Sweet-smelling, fruity but insipidly sweet cereal aromas. Flavors are the same: plastic. Sickeningly sweet palate. Tastes strong, sweet, alcoholic, and masculine. Blech, get drunk fast please.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy golden with pillowy white head. Sweet malty nose with honeyed character and light fruit and corn notes. Plum figgyness in the body with a sticking warmness matched by a bozzy flavor, with a touch of cherry and a lingering souring aftertaste. This brew doesn’t come together very cleanly.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 The aroma is metallic and alcoholic with malt and a touch of grass. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma and somewhat astringent. The palate is thin. I wouldn’t drink this again even if it was available where I live.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden-bronze colour with no head. Aroma of alcohol, toasted grain, and some DMS. The flavour is balanced between very sweet caramel/toast malts and a stiff woody alcohol finish. (He said "stiff woody"). It’s reasonably drinkable for a high-test Eurobrew.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear wheat yellow with ultra thin, quickly gone white carby head. aroma is heavy on wheat, maybe with touch of lemon. flavor packs much more a hop punch and then quickly fades into a resounding lemon-lime citrus aftertaste that lingers. tastes really lingers on, smooth is finish, body light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Zwonk! Biff! Blort! It’s kind of like 60’s Batman. It’s aroma is malty alchohol. It’s flavor is the same. It’s appearance and palate are carbonated. It is clean amber. It’s feel is a bit to astringent for me, but it’s actually otherwise ok.
