Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours a fairly pale straw with just a little rosy tint. Tons of active white head that settles down to just a few streaks. Fresh herbal soap aroma with a mineral/sulfur note that is subtle enough that it adds texture rather than detracts. Sweet grainy flavor--bagette drizzled with simple syrup. Subdued herbal hops are not quite up to the task of providing balance. Ends of being cloying, and I’m glad I have help finishing the bottle. Oddly, the alcohol hides better than the sweetness. As something that had Rodenbach’s name dropped in the label, I had higher hopes. (Okay. 10 minutes after I entered this rating, I came back and finished my glass, and this had actually gotten significantly more interesting and balanced as it warmed. A bit of vanilla rounds out the aroma. A tart note gives some relief to the sweetnes. Not bad.)

marcus (10149) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2007
This blonde ale poured with a large frothy white head. Its effervescense can be viewed through the side of clear pilsner glass. The flavor is rather sweet with a nice malty character and a hoppy alcohol finish. This is a pleasant drink on a warm day.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Sweet sugary aroma, some malts, and alcohol. Pours light blonde with a strong last dense head. Smooth and malty, hints of hops, cereal flavors, with a noticable alcohol presence. Not all that bad.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2007
Light hazy blond coloured beer with average carbonation and a rather small white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Full palate. Finish is very fruity, hints of hops, malts and a light alcoholic touch. NIce one.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Bottle at beerpassion festival Antwerp. A nice and good tasting beer. A little sweet but for many of us one of the better beers of the festival

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Sampled courtesy of DYCSoccer17. Hazy golden yellow with a good amount of froth. Raw herbal aroma (and, some skunk), with light smokiness and shy doughiness. Lightly fruity. Sweet, surprisingly flavor with booze more evident than aroma and more fairly raw hoppiness. Finishes rather thick and sweet with metallic notes. Weird.

DYCSoccer17 (3691) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750 ml bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville, CA. Initial DMS, skunky nose, which dissipates quickly. Aroma has some booze, corny, grassy hop aromas. Smells a bit like a malt liquor. Mildly hazy yellow body with a small, quickly dissipating yellow-twinged white head. Metallic, lightly sweet, biscuity maltiness in the start and in the middle. Finishes a bit harsh and bitter with some ethanolic notes. Similar to a malt liquor, but this is more smooth and lacks the harsh fusels.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2007
750. Beer is clear, light gold with a small, white, frothy, immediately diminishing head. Energetic carbo trails in the liquid.<P> The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate note of honeysuckle, light note of resin; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Light miscellaneous note of tin; swirl kicks up a light rotting corn/DMS note..<P> The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic with a long, lightly bittersweet, dirty-tasting finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.

Ernest (7662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2007
(as Krait Prestige) Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Not bad, as these things go, but difficult to enjoy all the same.

LeMarsu (2) - ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2007 does not count
Nice golden colour, with lost of flavours, nice and smooth when drunk. pleasantly surprised. But found over priced in my area!
