nimbleprop (7625) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Pours a transparent gold with a foamy white head and tight, small bubbles reflecting plenty of carbonation. Nose is mild but there is some Belgian candy, yeast, bananas, some malt, and some perfume. Flavor is similar, a little sour, malt, yeasty with some sweetness. A little chalky on the palate. Very drinkable, but a little bland.

11.2 oz bottle poured in tulip glass. Nice carbonation, sudsy foam head-thin and fizzy from start to finnish. Orange tinge with a thin pallet. Crisp and slight citrus notes with a light hop presence. Had a bit of a nut-grain quality but not really standing out, even with the yeast from the bottom. Dry-semi sweet finish.

cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
330ml bottle
6.8% ABV
I tried this beer on May 30, 2008 after purchasing from the Queens Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a hazy golden orange colour with a bubbly white head which disappears within a couple of minutes. The aroma was grassy malt, some appley hints, and a little hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavour was very yeasty with some malty hints. A little spiciness as well.
