On tap @ Falling Rock poured a cloudy gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, floral, fruitiness, light barnyard and some white wine notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, light apple and a hint of barnyard funk with a crisp dry finish.

WeeHeavySD (3385) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 Draft @ Patron Saint Party. Pours gold/yellow with a bright white ring. The nose has subtle hints of floral textures. The nose stood out as being different and scared me a bit but I didnt have to worry too long. The taste was sweet, floral and a bit bitter. Overall a very nice well rounded belgian strong.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle: Orange gold, nice white head and lacing. Nose of bright spice, eucalyptus, citrus and vanilla, coriander, grapefruit peel. Bright yeast and nice malt, very aromatic. Floral, citrusy, explosively peppery. Finishes creamy, good belgian with light hops and a crisp, earthy spicy persona. Thanks BuckeyeBoy!

hopdog (12113) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2007
750ml bottle (not sure who brought this one!). Poured a deep and hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of light funkiness, fruity, and yeast. Tastes of the same light funk and fruitiness.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2007 Hazy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is fruity, bret, some basement notes as well. Bret is very minor, more of a fruity Belgian. Interesting, enjoyable.

marcus (9977) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 5, 2007
This blonde ale poured with a massive white head, that foamed out the top of the bottle as soon as it was opened. There is a musty citrus aroma. The flavor, too, is musty starting off sweet then settling into a dryer fruit taste.

bhensonb (14889) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 3, 2007
750 ml. bottle. Aroma of spice and yeast with floral/fruity hop. Hazy ripe apricot color with a decent white head. Medium bodied with moderate, almost creamy, carbonation. The flavor is lighter stone fruits, like peach and apricot, with tingly spice. Seems a bit funky like something from Russian River. Its lightly sweet, but the finish turns dryish with a earthy, tart finish. The mouth tingles in a way. Could be a bit woody. Very different; very, very good.

750ml bottle pours out a cloudy gold topped with a white head. Odd nose of ligth hops belg spice. Pretty cool the IPA/Belg combo. I am glad i had it but would not be a everyday brew for me.

Thanks for sharing general_gao. The body was medium gold colored with a light khaki head. The aroma was funky with notes of hay, apricots and carmel. The taste was leathery with some carmel. There was also apple core and notes of apricots. This is a strange brew, but part of my problem is that I do not like apricots.
