mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle shared by NickTheElder. Pours a hazy yellow with some orange and a big off white head. Aroma is under ripe banana and spicy yeast. Flavor has some of the same with some bread and peppery lemon. Finishes fruity but dry. Palate is moderate with alot of foamy carbonation. Easy going down. A decent Belgian style ale.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours an orangish gold with a nice white head. Aroma is yeast, malts, and citrus. The taste is about the same. The citrus flavor really comes out in the finish. I really like this beer for the style it is. It reminds me of Germany and good times had there. I would recommend this, but not an everyday beer.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2009
Draft- Cullens- Chicago. Hazy yellow/amber served in a 12 oz goblet. Strong aroma of grass and yeast. Taste is funky and off- heavy grass, heavy yeast, sorry if I missed the point of this one- not pleasant. Some dried fruit trying to make its way to the end of this strange brew. Based on the other ratings (and my bias towards Goose Island beers), I may have gotten a bad pour. Who knows. Glad this one is over.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
12oz bottle from NicktheElder, thanks Nick. Medium gold pour with a white head. Spicy sweet aroma, some orange peel maybe. Light sweetness, easy to drink, not bad.

Anareon (13) - Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2009
UPDATED: APR 6, 2009 Draft. The hops provide a subdued piney flavour that persist throughout the drink and is balanced with a great malty taste. The palate is very smooth.

On tap at the Goose Island bar at OHare Airport. I wasnt going to rate this until I realized that I was being charged $8.91 for an 8oz pour. This beer has a dry, dusty, yeasty aroma full of banana esters. Some sweetness and doughy aromas are also present. Mildly hazy orange-honey body with an off white head. Leaves some nice lacing. Served a little on the cold side and overcarbonated. Has a sweet, yeasty banana start. This also has some light anise characteristics, too. A little spicy and peppery in the middle. Seems to have a bit of citrus in the finish with a grassy, herbal, hop bitterness. The dryness here is rather acceptable.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2009
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 07 bottle thanks to j12601, thanks Jay. Poured a light orange-copper color with a thick, rocky off-white head that slowly receded to a thin layer and left some scant spots of lacing. Moderately spicy aroma with some pepper and clove, dry citrus (orange peel, tangerine), a bit of floral hops, a moderate yeastiness and some soft vanilla. Crisp, moderately tart entry with some light lemon that leads into a lightly sweet orange flesh leading into a moderate, funky yeastiness paired with a light spicy, floral hoppiness that finishes dry with soft hints of brett. Moderate carbonation and good balance between aggressiveness and subtlety. Overall, a nice, enjoyable Belgian pale that shows some finesse. Thanks again Jay.

Hazy orange our with a white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor of spices, citrus, pale malts, and some yeast at the finish. Very smooth.
