Bottle. Small tan head that was mostly lasting, no lacing, some carbonation, transparent, and a reddish brown hue. Nose was malty, sweet and alcohol. Ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel and mediumb in body. Quaffable and well balanced, but there are better out there of this style IMO.

An interesting mix of flavors coming through with a sweetness that balances well against the hops. The bready yeast also mixes well against the citrus. I like the way the combination of flavors enhance the alcohol.

clear sparkling gold under a large fizzy white head. aroma of marshmallow, yeast, peach, and banana. strange flavors in this one. plastic, champaign, dough, cherry, alcohol, lip balm. thin ,watery texture. i didn’t care for this one much.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a clear golden color. Head was white and tenacious with good retention and lacing. The aroma was very refined with the different elements balanced an harmonious. I smelled clove, light brown sugar, yeasty bread dough, sea salt, and a hint of cheddar cheese. Sweet on the tongue with distinct alcohol and some fruit. Light to medium bodied, probably lightened up by all the EtOH. Tasted of champaign and piles of clove. Another good abbey-ish beer made at a brewery staffed by what I assume are non monks. Or are they?

somehow lemon is able to fight its way through the foggy thick yeast aroma. bright pale yellow, looks like listerine. i’d gargle with it! banana seeps through the equally thick yeast flavor. dusty and smooth

3.1
Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
In short: An overly sweet and simple alcoholised blonde Belgian beer.
How: Bottle 330ml, 1+ year old
The look: Cloudy blonde body with a little white ring of foam
In long: Very sweet and sugary beer. Sweetened peach and peers flavour with hints of lemon pie and meringue. A little floral touch and that’s it, hops presence totally crushed by the sweetness. Alcohol apparent. Not a bad beer at all but too sweet and not complex enough. As sweet and simple as a friendly retard.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Clear light gold, decent lasting head. Aroma spicy phenols, an almost burnt rubber note, and alcohol rough and present. Simply not inviting at all. Flavor is initially of pale malts, a quick note of burnt rubber, pepper, and spice, ending on a harsh alcohol note. Some bread there as well. Overall, I just didn’t care for this at all.

3.6
Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Oct. 2006 - Beer poured cloudy yellow with foamy head. Aroma of spices, predominantly coriander. Flavor was coriander, bananas and a lot of othe fruity sweetness. A noticeable alcohol burn was present at the end. Alcohol flavor was prevalent, but not unpleasant. Mouthfeel might have been a bit overcarbonated. A nice beer.

drank at home from a bottle using a tulip. has a nice sharp taste, alcohol taste is not that obvious. with a citrus end to it. It felt good, but it was on an empty stomach.
