Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Sampled at RBSG 07, pours a semi-hazy coppery/amber brew with a thin off-white head that dissolves to a fine film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of oak, powdery spice, some yeast and a touch of tart tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation, flavors of tart fruit, with a flowery hop aftertate. Finish is light, and slightly tart. Did not pick up any ginger or myrrh character in this beverage.

RBSG 07. I am happy I got to try this without paying for it. It is good, but not for the price. Very light appearance and thin body. Light spices in the aroma. Flavor is just a little sour, minimal yeast. Overall a light saison. It is a good idea but it needs more flavor and aroma.

750mil Bottle from mgumby. Strong rye-like grain malt aroma with hints of ginger and myrrh. Cloudy yellow-orange color wtih small head. Sweet myrrh and lemon flavor. Light bodied. Very pleasant and exotic - a bit like a wheat beer which is probably why I like it.

jimhilt (2581) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Explodes out of bottle with a thick creamy head that takes a while to fade leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Spicey/floral nose. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet and sour, hints of pepper, different from other spiced beers. Pricey, $12.40 for a 750ml bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle sampled on 7/2/06: Pours a cloudy copper bronze with thin-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity caramel malt and a touch of light fruity tartness. Starts with a body that foams up in the mouth showing some fruity acidity and bittersweetness before a thin, tart and rather bland finish. Not a huge fan of this, and definitely not worth the price.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Cloudy gold with a small head and spots of lace. Aroma is of citrus and a touch of dryness. Yeast and a note of pears. Dry. The flavor on the other hand is a bit more sweet. The citrus is there, though there is some yeast. A little doughy. Smooth and even bodied. Very refreshing. A session beer almost. I want to try this again in the summer.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2007
750 ml bottle from Sams in Chicago, bought as a tribute to my daughter, Norah, who spells it correctly! Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting creamy and frothy off-white head. Fruity, ginger, herbal, peppery, and lightly toasty aroma. Fruity, ginger, and herbal flavours with a peppery and dry hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft, rich, and creamy mouthfeel. Traditional ales are quickly becoming a favourite style of mine - grounded in tradition but experimental and an adventure at the same time. Reminds of the saying I keep in mind as a new parent at all times, "There are two things we can give our children. One is roots, the other wings."
