vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Pours hazy orange / amber with a small off-white head. The aroma has the biere de garde maltiness, but is considerably sweeter with an almost candy sugar like presence.& light nuttiness. Medium body that has biting carbonation. The taste is drier than the aroma with a papery aspect interwoven with the aroma traits along with some lemony sourness. The finish has a hint of peach. Okay beer.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2011
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, light perfumed fruit and yeast. The sweet flavour has notes of caramel, light fruit, spicy yeast and hints of chocolate. The body is quite full, and it’s easy to drink.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2010
750 ml bottle thanks to Brent from redlight redlight. Pours a rosy amber. Pretty fruity nose with hints of bubblegum and warm spices. The flavor is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Surprisingly dry. This may not be the fairest rating as I have a cold.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012
2012-11-12, bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Hazy amber color, low carbonation. Better than the last time, but still, the aroma shows some apples (undesired), the flavor is malty and sweetish, with low bitterness and some fruity presence; delicate spices too.
Easy.

2010-01-11, tasting at Papsø’s, 6-3-5-2-11
Hazy amber color. Simple Ale, some sweetish caramel flavor, too much alcohol, some vegetables, light spices. Confused.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Dirty yellow brown with a thin off white head. Nothing special really. Very yeasty and sugary sweet with a bit of bread and cinnamon. Spicy finish. Blah.
