Syzzer (580) - Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2011
A disappointing beer. Similar to the Sam Adams IPA (which tastes more like a pale ale)

MadIndian (2342) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Secret sampling after begging for 2 hours. Thanks Bill. Hazy yellow pour with a big candy sugar aroma. Sweet malt taste with notes of pepper, spices and bread. A good beer. Bill said this was going to a special BF, but he didn’t say which one.

Sweet smelling. Gold color (obviously). Sweet golden with a light spiciness.

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Draught at BCTC. Pours golden with a small white head. Nose of candied sugars, alcohol, orange rind. Flavor is sweet, fruity and alcoholic. Dumparoo!

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle. This was just too much. Body pours a light golden with a tall tight white head. Aroma of sugar and lots of it. Flavors of cotton candy, skittles and cinnamon raisin bread, toasted. Really nearly undrinkable. Pallate is hot and thin and the burn gets worse and worse as the beer warms.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2009
(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of candi sugar, florals, grass, and light herbs. Flavor of candi sugar, hops (grassy, herbal, earthy), and light spices with a dry finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 BBF 08. Nice light golden with some haziness and a nice fluffy lasting white head. Aroma is spicy phenolic light lemony and vanilly phenols, some citrus, earth and a slight sweet alcholic burn. Flavor is also sugary burn from the high alcohol but the malts try to keep up light doughy breadiness from the pils malt, more spicy earthy phenolics good clean hoppiness and a surpisingly dry finish.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a hazy yellowish-orange with a white head. Aroma is candy sugar, herbs and slight spice. Taste was very sweet, with fruit notes also detectable. Not a bad try at the style from Sam Adams.

swoopjones (5595) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Sample @ BCTC 2008. Had trouble finding this one listed in here. Pours a sort of cloudy Saxo-ish yellow orange. Aroma was Belgian sugar sweetness, some herbal aroma. Taste was tripel type sweet, fruity. Almost too sweet & sugary but not too bad

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Draft @ BCTC. Pours a hazy, golden-orange color; creamy, light khaki head with great retention and fine-bubbled lacing; great pour. Toasty, citrus, and mineral bitterness in the aroma; dry, minerally, and lightly herbal; touch of lime. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy Belgian sugar, white pepper, and creamy toasted malts; messy, chewy, sticky big Belgian beer; basic and pretty one-dimensional expression. Medium finish: breadiness, toasty malts, and Belgian sugar.
