Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 This poured a hazy amber with golden highlights. The tall chunky head laced the glass in sheets. The aroma is a peppery sweet malt with a definite alcohol presence. Light-bodied, it has a malty flavor enhanced with light fruits, cherries, perhaps, and something citric. It finishes with a good hit of herbal/floral hop bitterness and the dryness of its 8% abv. A decent enough drink.

Shag (2769) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 12, 2005
There wasn’t much exciting about this one. An orange appearance with a moderate head. A good deal of alcohol in the aroma with some citrus gettin up in yer nose. The flavor has a bit of funkiness but the palate is very thin on this one. I was shocked to see this was 8% ABV. Overall standard issue stuff

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2005
Hazy light peach hue with a white, frothy head. Doughy/musty yeast. A scattering of herb smelling hops and sugary malt sweetness. Notes of a spicey white wine. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: sadly bland.

aight brew, decent normal color to it if normal is a hayfield during muddy season. Basically this tastes like flat warm dr pepper. I can kinda dig it though, so some respect is due.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Worst beer I have ever had from Belgium. Reddish orange color with a nice, but quickly fading head. Spicy and watery like belgian chile pepper beer. Just tastes kinda cheap, but stil has that Belgian feel so some may find it palatable.

PorterPounder (6977) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga, 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark orange with a thick creamy head and excellent lacing. Minty aroma, a touch of alcohol and some bubble gum. Flavor has a bit of caramel, nuts and molasses and a wee bit of alcohol seeps through. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick, very warming with no carbonation, which is appreciated. A very decent and drinkable Strong Belgian.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2005
Robe rouge surmontée d’un décolleté blanc. Acide, alcool, métal, caramel. Très très bof. Presque pas intéressant, en fait...

oh6gdx (24495) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, huge longlasting beigishorange creamy head, lacing. Aroma consists of sugar, rye and stinging alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, due to very low carbonation. Very hoppy and sour flavour. Hayish and harsh alcoholic finish. Sticky palate. Not that interesting beer...

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2005
Orangey amber body with a medium size frothy white head. A little bit of pepper on the nose, does that signify the alcohol, also some orange. Pleasant easy drinking taste, alcohol doesn’t seem to show, medium to light in the body, soft malts. Agree with the coomercial description " strong ale with a mild taste"
