Ungstrup (33773) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of peach, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge but fast disappering head. The flavor is extremely sweet - too sweet for my taste. With strong notes of peaches, apples, oranges, alcohol, and corriander. It ends on a combination of lemon and corriander with the sweetness lingering. An OK beer, but a bit too much alcohol and a little too sweet. The flavors though are magnificent. Thanks to Alex (Fiulijn) for trading this with me.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Clear golden ale (function of temperature?), pours a creamy head that quickly fades; no lace. Taste reminds me of champagne/white wine: alcohol, acid, apples, flower, citrus tang. Minimal barley malt, good wheat, dry (not sweet)

RichardGretton (4588) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Light blonde Belgian style beer, with a fruity Belgian beer aroma. The flavour is strong but lacking any real quality. Overall a basic Belgian style beer, slightly overrated.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2003
cloudy/hazy orange but still a tad see through...froth on top with a solid halo...yeasty and banana aromas..maybe even some coriander and white grape...spritzy mouthfeel with the usual yeasty, spicy, banana flavors...decent.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Cloudy copper color with a white head. Aroma of lemon, peach and grape. Nice crisp feel, with yeast, citris and grape flavors.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Absolutely beautiful looking beer...cloudy (almost opaque) orange color with a perfect sized bright white head. The aroma was full of vegetable (maybe tomato juice) tones and sweet banana, lemon, and yeasty tones. The flavor was a little more rounded with a pleasant fruity character...lemon, apricot, peach, and banana...still a little vegetable throughout. The feel was rather soft, but spritzy.

1more4dessert (334) - Upstate, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2003
This was a hazy straw color with head aplenty as most of this brewery's offerings seem to. Yeasty but not umpleasantly so in the aroma, non acidic fruit notes. This one reminded me more of a tripel like Weyerbacher Merry Monk's. The alcohol presence is very well obsurred.

MaBeer1972 (1707) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Big foamy white head over a cloudy, glowing copper body. Flavor is almost masked by the alcohol (not quite). Bready and fruity flavors. Hard for me to pin down. A little stronger than I like them...

desurfer (1276) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Hazy golden body, small white head. Very yeasty aroma, flavors of spice and clove, as well as banana and yeast. Sweet but not cloying. Dry finish. The alcohol is very apparent as the beer warms.

jazz88 (2650) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Bottle. Hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. A light fruit, candy, and spice aroma that is quite enjoyable and yearns to drunk. A lively mouth full with a sweet candy and fruit flavor that may include banana and peach and finishes with a yeastry dryness.
