Padron4KM (804) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2007
750 ml bottle corked and caged.

Smudged date code on the back of the bottle.

Clear dark golden, steady carbonation

The latte foam like head recedes slowly and delicate lace patterns trace its path down the glass.

Initial aroma is ripe fruits and yeast, later some caramel and light brown sugar emerge with maybe a little bubblegum esters.

Flavor is ripe fruit, mango, banana with a slightly sugary sweetness that is balanced by a nice refreshing bitter finish.

Creamy mouth feel. Alcohol is deceptively hidden.

I got this bottle for just over $4, a steal IMHO, if it wasnt mispriced Im going back for the lot of them.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2007

vyvvy (5980) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Pours copper / orange with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma has toasted malt, dark fruits, earthy yeast, some alcohol warmth, toffee and cleaner - that last aspect takes down points from an otherwise fine aroma. Medium / full body with a minor amount of semi-sharp carbontion. The taste starts with nectar fruits, bubblegum like sweetness and alcohol warmth. The finish doesnt add much more than head. This is not a bad beer, but it seems quite one dimensional for the style ~ so it goes, it wasnt that expensive for a Belgium 750.

AvantAle (50) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle... I think. Golden, golden, golden. Bright. Light head with an interresting pattern. Dotty. Has a very grassy smell. Alfalfa, malt, maple syrup, sugar cane, almond, and pine needles. The flavor isnt as detailed with notes of pine and honey, but it is well balanced, and covers alcohol well. Finishes smoothe and creamy.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Golden muddy coloration. Notes of coffee, nuts and chocolate. A certain bitter taste in the tongue leaves. Excellent carbonation. Perfect cream.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Bottle. Reddish coloration, with a very nice beige cream, dense and persistent. Floral, citric, with notes of caramel malt, vanilla and chocolate. Perceivable alcohol. Average/high carbonation. Full-bodied, but it is not so complex.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
(Bottkle 33 cl) Hazy, dark amber with a dense and creamy, off-white head. Rich aroma of sherry and wood. Very heavy body with accents of sweet, roasted malts and caramel and then again this woodiness, desert wine and noble rot. A surprisingly solid bitterness. Good stuff. 050207

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2007
12oz Bottle. Aoma was yeasty biscuts, malt, and alcohol. Copper/amber body with off white head. Had a strong bitter alcohol start to the flavor. Malt blended in to take away some of the bitter and sour fruity flavor was appearent. Alcohol presence though out this beer, little harsh on palate and leaves you with a sour lemon aftertaste.

takecareofmac (2) - tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 6, 2007 does not count
Deep Golden, nearly brown color, with a potent aroma that brings attention to the consumer. An intense first drink that can be felt from head to toe followed by a complementary smooth finish that makes the Samaranth a covetted brew.
