Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2004
Golden with medium sized head. Sweet (perhaps too sweet), and fruity. Soft palate. Drinkable but there is not much going on.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2004
Nice golden color, with a thin head to it. Aroma has a sweeter leafy side to it. Mouthfeel starts as a more boring beer, but turns into a nice simple hop snap to ot, but ends smoothly. Flavor is simple and mirrors the rest of the beer in as a fine compliment.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 Pours golden yellow with a thick head. Hints of yeast and hops are in the nose, and the taste is very similar but with a slight hint of spice in the finish. Good stuff, but not great. Too bready and fluffy tasting.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

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!

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.

Beerdedone (3228) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle. pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is sweet, citrus, and fruit.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Great ceramic pop-top bottle! The pour was deep gold/dark straw with a minimal white head. The aroma was bready malty, with some fruit, hopcit, but not a lot of intensity. The flavor was pale malty and honeyfied, with some fruit (pear, apricot), and hopcit, plus some spicy floral notes. Not bad, but not a standout, either.

CanIHave4Beers (4020) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2008
I fear my bottle has past her prime. I had the dark version a year or so ago, and quite liked it. This one fails to thrill though. Sort of musty smelling... now for me musty isn’t always bad, but this doesn’t have a lot else going on in the aroma department. Very lightly golden colored with some cloudiness. Not sure where this "Good Head" they speak of is, but it does have a small head with ok retention and a little lace. Tastes a little watery, nicely sweet and fruity, but not very complex. Alcohol is fantastically hidden. A good beer, I’d buy it again if I saw it, but in no way would I seek it out.

Overall I was unimpressed. Definately not a bad beer, but did not seem to be enough malts or hops to overcome the taste of alcohol. If I was not in Georgia I would have sworn this thing was 10%.
