330 ml bottle, best before 14/01/06. Lightly hazy golden yellow colour with a huge, mostly lasting, frothy, pillowy, and rocky white head. Citrus, yeasty, lightly grassy, and lightly spicy aroma. Dry subtle citrus, spice, and yeasty flavours with a light alcohol finish. Light to medium bodied, creamy but refreshing mouthfeel. sloth (2955) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Medium sized white head, good retention and lacing. Hazy, straw color. Lots of floaties. Yeasty, flowery nose. Light bodied, spritzy. Light malt notes, citrus, lemony notes, fruity. Finish is dry refreshing. Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Pours pale straw color with tons of creamy egg-shell white head of fine bubbles that linger nicely. Nice spring-fresh aroma. A pleasant combination of flowery hops and estery fruitness. Estery banana and clove in the tastes too. Bit of soapiness in the finish. (I mean that in good way.) Body is on the thin side, but smooth and pleasant.

33 cl bottle. Cloudy gold color with nice head when poured into a Corsendonk glass. Aroma is fruity and peppery spicy. Taste is lightly hopped but more of the same spices that are in the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty lively and carbonated. Just a tad sour with taste of yeatiness. MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Nice malty, full flavour, but way too weak flavour for the ABV......

A classic, but not for the impatient! Pours slowly with a rich, billowy head (at least two fingers!) The ale itself is clear, bubbly, champagne gold. Looks perfect! The taste is powerful and upfront. A fruity nose with a strong presence of apple. The initial taste is sweet, dry and fruity. Again, similar to a dry champagne. Unlike champagne, this is bubby but not effervescent. It is dry and ashy, but not chalky. Strong citrus flavors as it opens up. A sustained earthy finish. An all-around wonderful drinking experience! willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2004
10.17.04 12oz bottle. Pale golden pour with mountainous, rocky head. Aromas of crisp, green pear, vinous, lemongrass. Reminds of an extreme pinot grigio. Palate is light but soft as it dances around spreading delightful flavors of pear, fresh pineapple, green grape. Honey undertones. Light, forgiving, but still complex. This could be an everyday tripel. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Clear golden brew.massive white head.The nose off this is a treat for the senses.Floral and sweet almost winelike.it is if i am at a florist.Orchids??Now it is hops.Or is it spice:coriander.A little drier then I expected which is nice as was thinking this would be sweeter.The hops and spice kinda take over here.Nice brew.Not much for a lingering taste tho’.

This is a very smooth, soft bodied drink. It poured a light but hazy yellow
color with a foamy head. There was loads of yeasty residue, despite my careful pouring. (The brown I purchase with it didn’t display this property.) Good aroma, sweet floral and citric. The taste was mildly malty, spiced up, and citricy. Pleasant sweet/sour finish. I’ll have to try another. I notice that no one else mentioned the residue like I had. gabbledbabble (60) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Straw blond with a fat bubble froth that’s quick to rise, and lingers like a Yorky glad to see you.
Looking for a nose...Clean straw, well-swept barnyard, orange blossom honey.
Lovely spicy yeast, mace and allspice. A dry tang, green banana and hard pears. A wonderful fruity aftertaste. Lovely lightly toasted malts remind me of buttermilk biscuits. Fresh, raw (unpastuerized) spring milk, fresh cut pasture. Wonderful character.
This is beatified fermentation!
Lively carbonation carries the active alcohol quickly over the palate.
Beautiful beer. I wouldn’t kick it out of bed. I caught myself licking my lips for leftovers. Would be yummy with Moghul Indian foods.
