JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2005
Bottle. Dark gold colour with a slim white head. Aroma has malt, caramel, honey and citrus. Taste has fruit and honey, some yeast. Medium bodied. Alcohol is apparent, particularly in the finish, without being overpowering. Good ale.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Alcohol and sweetness to the aroma. pours golden blonde with absolutely no head, yet carbonated. Poured from a ceramic bottle known for leaking bottle caps so that might have something to do with it. But still it doesnt taste oxidized. Still a good beer!

TheBeerGod (6104) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle - ceramic with a cap and swing top. LIttle bit of history, first. This is the first time Ive seen this beer in my area since the mid 90s. I worked at a gourmet grocery store between 92-96 and we sold it there, so its been around 10 years since Ive had this. It was very good back then, lets see if it has changed, shall we? The pour is deep gold with a bubbly, but quickly terminal, white head. Nose is slightly hoppy and floral but mainly sweet. Sweet malts, hint of honey, candied fruits and light yeast. Taste is also more sweet than bitter. More honey, cadyish notes, ripe fruits, light citrus, light yeast and minimal floral hoppiness. Body is light and creamy with mild carbonation feel to it. Slight bit of alcohol is noticeable despite the 7.6% ABV. Finishes with more sweet malts, honey, light toffee, ripe fruits, faint citrus, and light yeast. I can say that this seems to remind me of the beer I had so long ago, and probably, due to its rather sweet taste, would explain why I liked it so much back then. Kind of like meeting up with an old friend. Good but not great. My tastes have changed more than this beer.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2005
Pale straw to light gold body with an overflowing white head. Citrus aromas especially grapefruit and then yeast. Big clumps of lacing. Smooth drinking, medium body, maybe a touch watery, this went down well enough and I didnt pick up the alcohol at all.

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesnt seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2005
(Ceramics bottle 50 cl) Comes as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru" brewed by Sterkens. Orangey golden with a small head - and an almost flat appearance. Very soft mouthfeel. Malty with honey flavours and a soft honey-like sweetness - never cloying though. 090298

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 (Bottled, ceramic, 0.5l, "St.Sebastiaan Grand Cru", refined-rate) Hazy golden color with a pathetic head. Yeasty and fruity, sweet toffee aroma with slight earthy sourness. Yeasty, fruity and spicy, oaky flavor with honey and toffee hints. No alcohol visible. Medium-bodied, refreshing and sticky palate with almost no carbonation. An easily drinkable, refreshing, yeasty and spicy ale. Dont expect a classic, though. Quite similar to some traditional ales - although the cap on this one didnt seem very tight, which may play a part in that.
