Dogbrick (10879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: This brew pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow color with a thick white head. Fair lacing. Sugary sweet malt and fruit in the nose. Medium body with a nice blend of malt, citrus (mostly lemon) and yeast flavors. The alcohol is nowhere to be found. The finish is fruity with a touch of malt. Pretty good overall.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Golden orange color, big suddsy white head settles fast with good lace. Spicey citrus aroma with light hints of yeast. Flavor was initialy spicey with more citrus fruit flavors and a sweetness like white grapes that have just a little bit of tartness. These initial flavors faded into a slighty yeasty phenolic taste. Mouth feel was quite lively with carbanation and spice. The after taste calmed down the palate with a nice slightly sweet malt smoothness.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2004
12oz. BB date 06: Hazy golden,with streaming carbonation. Frothy head,settles,leaves lovely lace. Aroma is yeasty,quite hoppy,with supple amounts of aromatic malts. Full mouthfeel,kind of fizzy,big body. Chewy pale malts and wheat are followed with tons of yeasty esters. Finish starts with breadiness(malt) and ends quite hoppy. So very,drinkable. Haven't had this in a couple years,going to have to keep this one around. Might be my fav from Uni.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Bottle. Hazy yellow/orange color with large white head. Aroma is a nice balance of malt, hop, and sweet fruit. Taste is nicely malty but has a nice dry finish. Flavors are fruity and spicy. I would really like to have this again because I was just trying a friend's glass to rate this. I want one of my own damn it. Good stuff.

Jayb0 (1141) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Surprised I never rated this. Lovely beer with flavors or orange and honey, almost liqueur-like in the middle. Spicy finish. Yellow-gold, quickly receding head. Aromas of yeast and citrus.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Blond golden color with light head and light lacing. Light belgian esters (banana/clove) with a slight yeast and bubblegum finish. Flavor is well balanced, not much alcohol, light body, well made.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Pale gold, a bit hazy. Small head that left pretty quick. Big yeast/wheat/bread nose. Some hops there. Nice flavors. Bready and yeasty. Some clove and banana. Some more spices. Malt is lying underneath the other flavors. Medium bodied, smooth palate, and a slightly hoppy finish. Very good. I'm liking.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Hazy gold color. Pungent citrucy and hoppy aroma. Broad taste with wonderful citrus and spice overtones. Dances on the back of the tongue.
