Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 14, 2006
1 litre swing top bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Smells perfumy with citrus and lots of fruit. Taste is lemony with lots of nice fruity elements and sour undertones.

Weak juniper and elderberry nose. Cloudy golden, chunks, thin head. Tart flavor of sharp cheese and lemon. Very interesting beer, quite unique and good.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Draught at the brewery. Cloudy amber pour covered with the usual Birrificio Italiano charming and enormous, firm, lasting white head. Highly perfumey aroma, almost explosive. It is hard to believe that this holds under 4% ABV. Rosewater and lightly honeyed, toasted maltiness. A most original effort, sensuously sweet and flowery, grainy and with a certain refreshing tartness. Not as complex as its ingredientss list, but very easy to drink and surely well integrated. Ill try again from the bottle and will adjust my opinion accordingly, because this is the kind of beer that you rarely face.

TheBeerGod (6167) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Comes in a 1 liter swing top bottle. Pours a blshing orange-amber with a small white head. Thankfully, this has none of the explosiveness that the Cassissona had! Aroma is unique, to say the least! I smell rose water, rye bread, tart berries, peppery spices, and some Brett-like notes. Taste is soft flowers, mellow rose water, pepper, touch of dill, sweet malts, and light tart fruitiness. Body is light but well carbonated. Ends with more spices, rose water, bread, light tart fruits, and light earthiness.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
In short: A perfumy rose-water based beer. Girly and sickeningly aromatic
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed some 6 months after the beer release. Sample at Cathschlag birthday party tasting
The look: Cloudy blonde body with big ugly chunks of yeast topped by a short-lived white head
In long: The floral aspect of this one goes has flower petals and the likes but goes way beyond that, this is downright rose water, perfume and other romantic girly aromatic notes. Some fruity notes (mainly grapefruits) feel like and added flavour to a rose water drink rather than the other way around. Body is watery. Light sensation of cleaning product. Not even refreshing, just annoying. What the fuck were my drinking partners drinking giving positive review to that gross girly perfumy beer, I havent anything so gay since Dancing With The Stars: Special Hairdressers.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 19, 2006
One of the funnest brew of the tasting. Hazed amber color with a moderate white head. Funky aromas with lavender, spice, cinnamon, and hints of brett. Mildly citric in the flavor, with light lemon grove and wild flowers fields in the background. Equally as complex as pannepot, but the flavors and aroma, to me, where much more enjoyable.

JK (6046) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 I thought it was a saison, and this is what I imagine saison used to be when it was intended as a refreshing beverage. Some acid in the aroma. Barnyard and horseblanket aroma. Sour, yeasty flavor. No alcohol in the nose or flavor, which is what I expected. I finished off the contents of the swing top bottle 6 days after first opening. The beer is still sour, but also has more of an earthy quality. It is brown and opaque with lots of sediment. This is good.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 16, 2009
A nice flowery citrus aroma. This has some crazy floral bite to this. Very tangy with a lot of citrus. Mostly just strange. No way to accurately describe this and Im not sure if I like it.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN, and shared by brewfiend. Pours a semi-hazy golden brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma of light golden grain malt, some citrus zest and grassy hop character and a touch of apricots. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some citrus hops, white grape and some fruity pear. Finish is semi-sweet, fruity aftertaste that slowly disappears with a light grapefruit finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2007
The body is a hazy light ambered toppede with a thick, well sustained solid head that does some fine lacing. The aroma is sweet and yeasty backed by scents of roses, citrus and dark fruits, honey, and hot spices. It has a complex merging of flavors, liberally spiced, and has a wheaty tartness to wrap it up. Dry finish. Refreshing and tasty.
