From a 750 ml, corked & caged bottle(that cork was a real bitch to get out!)... Appears a transparent gold with faint haziness and tons of carbonation bubbles racing to the top of the dense, 3 finger, white head. Lots of webbing is left around the glass. Smell is of mildly doughy, caramel, candi sugar, apricots, citrus, herbal, & earthy notes, with perhaps of touch of banana deep in the background. Taste is sweet of melted caramel, apricot reduction, sugar, pepper, and a decent malty quality that has flashes of the citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied yet slightly chewy, sugary, cookie and spiced liquid treat.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2006
From 750. Pours a murky golden orange with off white head. Nose is light fruits, apricot, yeasty and a little candy like. Flavor follows with a little alcohol in the back. Some off flavors like cardboard hold this one back a bit.

marcus (9538) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 13, 2006
75cl bottle. This blonde ale poured with a lacy white head, most of which dissipated rather quickly. There is a floral malty aroma. The flavor is very yeasty and carbonated with a flat bitter finish. It is a complex beer with variable and interesting tastes, such as caramel, and citrus.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 1, 2006
Very cloudy, yellowish orange body. Head is of white bubbles and lasts for about 30 seconds. Smells of yeast and coriander, clove spice and acid hops. Taste is strong and full, with thick malt, citrus tang, apple cinnamon, lemon and grapes. Really fine flavors. Big alcohol. Even though there wasnt much of a head, body still looks luscious, with bubbles continually rising and putting on a good show.

Clear floral citrus aroma. Orange hazy appearance. Light sweetness up front with a very bitter finish. Medium body with a thick mouthfeel. Creamy and lively. Bitter long lasting finish. Alcohol is very present in the taste. Very delicious.

I used to think I liked this beer, but now I dont think its all that pleasing. Anyway, it pours a pretty deep gold color, with a good sized head, even pouring slow. Aroma was tough for me to detect, all I was able to notice (at that time anyway) was a bit of yeast. Taste is sweet upfront with caramel malt flavors and fruitiness competing for your attention. However, the sweet qualities in this beer simply dont mesh well with the other flavors (and I usually like very sweet beers). The finish is equally conflicted, with a bitterness that doesnt seem hop-related at all. Its like it became kind of astringent when it hit my throat. Carbonation was pretty high, and the beer was neither thick, nor thin. This just didnt do it for me now, maybe some other point in time.

Pours bright amber into a tulip. Offwhite micro head with very good retention. Malt notes. Fizzy with strong alcohol front to back. Warming.
