Geiserich (3412) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottled: Amber color, creamy off-white head. Aroma with notes of acid and alcohol, light fruitiness of raisins, herbs and honey. Flavor is malty with acid, fruits and hops. Nice one.

Gr0ve (2145) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2010
750 ml bottle. Light copper colour. Crystal clear. Tall fluffy off-white head that clings to the glass. Soapy and peppery aroma with hints of juniper. Rich malty flavours, even though the body leans towards the lighter side. Balances between a rich and soft maltiness and a crisp bite from the carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Sigmund (5188) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2010
750 ml swingtop bottle, from Vinmonopolet, nettbutikken. ABV is 6.9%. Deep golden to amber colour, big to moderate white (or slightly off-white) head. Spicy and herbal aroma, hints of flowers and honey too. The flavour is fairly sweet and malty with caramel and moderate hops, hints of honey, the alcohol is noticeable. Lacks the crisp freshness of the Hildegarde Blonde.

ClubGonzo (4127) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2010
Pours a good-looking hazy deep amber body with a finger-width of white foamy retention. Smell is fruity, with some deeper sweet malt tones and hints of Belgian yeast. Taste is well-rounded, with a smooth complexity of red berries, peaches and hints of hay embedded in Belgian-style yeasty molasses and slightly roasted malts. Sweet, yet fresh in every way. A delicious beer; light-bodied and drinkable despite the high ABV - this is what I’d call a good summer beer.

Bottle. DØE Tasting, French beer. Pours a clear and copper beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and fruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweet. Overall a beer just above average.

drpimento (2271) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Not bad, not great. Nice label. Swing top opened with a good "pop". Poured with a smallish cream colored head that quickly faded to almost none and no lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with some sediment bits. Aroma is nice with malt caramel a little fruit and hops. Flavor is not as full of character: malt a bit roasty a bit of acid a bit of fruit. Body is ok with lots of carbonation which, I’m not sure if it helps or not. Finish is like flavor and fairly short.

Christian (11218) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
Amber with a small off-white head. Malty aroma of biscuit and toffee with a spicy touch of anise. Malty flavour with spice, fruit and an earthy touch.
