peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Rebranded holiday growler. Truely goldenbody with beer goggle haze. Aroma was a clone of flavour, both with lovely sweet citrus and mild yeast. Good solid head that follows most of the way down.

PorterPounder (7416) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Marcello Wine Market - Baton Rouge, La. - 750 ml bottle. Slightly murky, nectarine colored orange with a sticky, forthy snow white head. Sweet, slightly yeasty aroma with some faint citrus notes. Flavor is faintly malty, with some sweet cake mix like sweetness. Faint traces of lemony citrus notes. Decent carbonation level, decent mouthfeel. Alcohol hidden well. Pleasantly surprised.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle, 50cl. Just love the ceramic bottle and the swing top. Golden colour beer with a medium white foam, rapidly diminishing. Weak aroma (at least weaker than i expected...), with notes of hops and fruits. Highly carbonated in mouth. Alcohol is a little too strong, without a nice backup. Finish is lightly sweet. Flavours aren’t well mixed in this beer. Not bad, but, as i said before, i was expecting a lot more.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2005
bottle. another heavy ceramic bottle. translucent orange-golden body with a small white head. not very Belgian-like aroma - light fruit and graininess. body is sweet and grainy but there isn’t a whole lot of character. some pear flavour. carbonation is spritzy at times. mediocre.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2005
Bottle. Dark gold colour with a slim white head. Aroma has malt, caramel, honey and citrus. Taste has fruit and honey, some yeast. Medium bodied. Alcohol is apparent, particularly in the finish, without being overpowering. Good ale.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Alcohol and sweetness to the aroma. pours golden blonde with absolutely no head, yet carbonated. Poured from a ceramic bottle known for leaking bottle caps so that might have something to do with it. But still it doesn’t taste oxidized. Still a good beer!
