decaturstevo (6121) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2006
A hazed orange pour with a huge foamy head. A sweet fruity aroma. A flavor of alcohol seems to come through at 7%.Im surprised. A good beer but not a great one. Just a tad on the fizzy side for me.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Pours cloudy golden caramel with a gigantic frothy off white head--1/3 of my beer is still in the bottle--with a bunch of chunky sediment. Aroma of Belgian hops, dust, apples, and pears. Taste is much the same with a little bit of sweet artificial oranges, though this isnt near as detracting as what Ive had with some beers. Not terribly hoppy, though it does have a dry slightly bitter finish. Still moderate to high carbonation, medium bodied. Nice lacing, almost 1/4" @ some points. Cant really pick up on any ETOH, though it is just 7%.

Geiserich (4369) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottled (7,5%, about 2,5 years old): Intensive aroma, fruity, malty, yeasty. Hazy orange color, huge frothy head. Yeasty with many particles. Flavor is intensive with alcohol, fruit, citrus and light sweet malt notes. Dry, medium to intensiv bitter finish with bitter hop notes. Pleasant balanced beer with a suprising bitterness in the end.

Bottled (8%). Golden colour, huge, slightly off white fluffy, longlasting head. Aroma is spices, malts, yeast and some grassy notes. Flavour is yeast, fruits, hops and some spices. Wellbalanced and refreshing. Hides ABV very well.
