illidurit (2241) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Batch 002 poured from a 750 into a Duvel tulip. Body is golden with a solid three fingers of bright white fluffy foam on top. Absentmindedly I pour out every last drop of the bottle without looking at the yeast sediment, resulting in SHEETS of yeast floating around. Flat, 1 square inch yeast sheets cling to the beer/head division, and some of it sinks down to the carbonation nucleation point at the very bottom of the glass only to be shot back upwards by the column of bubbles! This beer all of a sudden looks like a lava lamp! Aromas of overripe apples, pears, lemon, brett (not overpowering funk though). Flavors of citrus, grain, yeast. A very mellow and subtle beer. Light and airy without being thin-bodied (if that makes any sense). Goes down really smooth and could even be sessionable. Another RR beer that doesn’t disappoint.

after4ever (6627) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2007
750, corked and baled. Pours glowing light gold with a thick, fluffy platinum blonde head. Sheets of woolly lace all the way down the glass, can barely see through it. Little bits of slowly rising carb here and there in the beer. Nice hay, lemon, and floral nose. Mild. Medium body, light fizz. Restrained in almost every way, except maybe the lacing. The lemon, hay, and flowers come back around for the mid-palate, and finish with an ever-so-slightly toasty linger. Nice but not built to totally astonish you in any way. Still, this would be a great one to serve to friends of all palates, it’s a good common ground kind of beer.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle (batch 3). Golden color with a medium head. Aroma is a pleasant Belgian malt/yeast mix with some light citrus. Flavor is yeasty and a tad grainy, but very smooth and good with food. Citrus, wood, spice, and some light hops are all in there in some capacity. Quality brew that could go with almost anything.

drseamus (103) - Troy, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Did a side by side tasting with this and Damnation. This one pours a light amber straw color with a bit of white head. It was slightly cloudy because some of the yeast got into the glass, but I like to drink the yeast anyway. The aroma isn’t what I expected. It had a good malty body with some woodsy hop aroma. There is also an overall yeasty smell behind everything else. The flavor is fairly sweet but with some hop bitterness to balance. I can actually taste some hops as well. This is a good beer and I was pleasantly surprised.

beerbill (3565) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2007
750 ml bottle, Batch 003, thanks to a trade with dirty_martini. Pours a hazy pale gold with a moderate, foamy snow white head that lasted through most of the glass. Some floaties in the glass despite my slow pour. Very nice, bright aroma of fresh lemons, grains, banana, and yeast. The flavor was equally nice with again, fresh lemon, grains and some yeast noted. The lemons were not sour and added a brightness to the beer. Very enjoyable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Hazy straw, quite hazy in fact, large foamy white head, fairly nice lacing, light carbonation.   Musty nose, pale straw/hay, a little barnish.   Smooth on the tongue, minor sweetness, light but clean, very refreshing after walking 15 blocks to City Beer to pick this one up.   One of the better Belgian Blondes I have had in a while.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Comes across more airy than it looks, *burp*.   Yeasty finish, remaining musty grasses, barnish.   Straight shooter, nothing out of the ordinary, but very well built.   Not as heavy or astringent as many other examples, light and clean.   Me like!

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Batch 3 750ml. Bikesandbeer bought this for me in SF @ Whole Foods thanks dude. Pours gold with lots of carbonation and a big 2 finger bright white head. Really nice nose, wild yeast and lots of punch. Taste is sweet, grassy, yeasty and bright. Very nice and smooth. Very nice, wish it had a bit more sour in it, but I’ll live.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle. Batch 003. Like a toned down triple - less sweetness, but still spicy. Nice mellow bitter finish. Nothing crazy, but well done and really well balanced.

jefcon (1491) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle. Batch #002. Pours a huge head and releases wild yeasty aromas. Some soft grains. Tremendous use of alcohol to heighten flavors. Orange, apricot, citrus, clove, pepper. Plenty of residue left in the bottom of the bottle and the glass.
