reebtogi (5940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
A very interesting beer I tried many years ago. It was probably one of the first beers I tried with a spiciness to it. I hope to find it again sometime, so that I can rerate it at that time.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 Bottle... Murky orange ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, spicy aroma with plenty of fuzzy fruit and red apple. Yeasty as well. Well-balanced, fruity, spicy flavor. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes lightly malty with mild bitterness.

Ernest (7479) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle, RBSG 2005. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, orange), moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of peach and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Rather too quick and flimsy in the mouth for the weight, not that satisfying.

Bottle: IGA Gatineau; carbonation, small head that disappear fast, brown/orange color, caramel/fruity aroma, caramelized taste with a boost of spice. Great and pleasant one.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2006
Poured from a bottle brought by some Ratebeerian (I cant remember who) to the Real Ale Fest 2005, PP Carlsbad. Awash in a sea of hop juice, I launched myself upon this non-IPA respite. Hazy light orange with a largish biege head. Aroma is lemony, yeasty and buttery; that is, sumptuous. The woody orange peel flavor was intense, riding upon a light caramel malt backbone that sported notes of honey. Medium body. Finish was spicy and dry, with a residual sweetness at the perfect level, and sublte hops that added a little prickliness. I liked this beer a lot, and was sad that it was distributed so quickly. Ill have to hunt it out for a larger sampling.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2006
Deep golden-orange colour, thin off-white head, very cloudy. Sweet spicy aroma, loads of Unibroue yeastiness with some fairly sweaty/earthy aromas as well. Peachy esters, brown sugar and even a bit of toastiness. Very Unibroue, but there is a bit more malty character than is typical. Flavour shows nice sweet toasty malt on the front before a bit yeasty/spicy flavour. Bready and fruity finish. Spritzy texture. Very good.

Hazyamber pour with a bubbly beige head. Sweet citrus with a peach and sweet scotch tone; bready malts and Yeasty scone flavors start from the top. the middle is citrus and the finish has a mild white pepper nip. Figs and nice aftertaste.

Quevillon (2967) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
Anciennement, cette bire tait un produit de la brasserie Seigneuriale Boucherville (rive sud de Monral). Cette micro-brasserie t procur par Sleeman, par la suite ses oprations ont arrt. Sous Unibroue, une de ces bires (celle-ci) est revenu sur le march en 2005. Une tres bonne ale belge saveur de dagrume, caramel et pice. Trs peu de got dalcool.

asheft (3029) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Cloudy amber-orange with no head. Banana and phenolc aroma plus some sour like from brettanomyces. The flavour is surprisingly sweet with soft banana and other flavours characteristic of the Unibroue yeast strain. Spicy black pepper and mild bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, soda watery finish.
