Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Gold. Dull, slightly tart aroma of cereals, whole wheat, banana peel, sugars, peach and apricot. Strong, slightly sour and nutty yeast taste. Quite bizarre. Notes of clove, coriander yet I doubt it is spiced. So this is what is drunk during fasting times? I could get used to that.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Clouded amber appearance, good head formation. Spicy mint aroma, fruit, apple. Light bodied palate, strong carbonation. Mildly malty, fairly yeasty palate, touches of clove and coriander. Slight astringency in the finish.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Good Cloudy golden color,medium sized white head that had a good hangtime then faded slowly yo a light lace.Nice light malt aroma with a slight spicy side and a hint of band-aid as well.Very light flavor with a mild bannana and maybe a little lemon upfront and the band-aid makes an appearence as well but not overly so.The brew comes off as very smooth,in an almost watery way actually,but as it warms it picks up a little better and gets a nicer fruity flavor and the band-aid mellows in the beginning but picks up in the after taste.Over all not bad but the B-A turns me off the farther i get into it.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2004
A good hazy golden brew, it poured a huge head that lasted a long time. Flavor was a bit spicy, citrus. Almost like a witbeer, but a harsher taste, not bad.

marcus (9992) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 8, 2004
This pale golden ale pours with a white fluffy head. The initial taste is hoppy, with a somewhat bitter finish. There is a slight lemon flavor coupled with some sort of spice. Overall, a nice warm weather drink, but not exceptional.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Pours a lite straw color with a fluffy head. Aromas of the spicy belgian yeast and a fair amount of noble hops. A wonderfully light fluffy body. Very appetizingly hoppy. I wonder if this is dry-hopped. Semi-sweet with flavors of pear, mango, citrus and a ligth sourness. A nice smack of bitterness towards the end. This could very easily become an every-day session beer if I had regular access to it. Unfortunately I suspect that this is another beer that, because of its lack of alcohol, does not receive the credit it deserves. Excellent.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Light and pale gold in color with steady flowing bubbles within, a sturdy and thickly set white cap of good sized girth sits atop. Fluffy and persistent fringe stays present the whole glass through; lacing is spotty. Aroma is lightly spicy and dry with a lemony twist and a small hint of phenols drifting about. Taste is crisp and dry with a slight tart edge of lemon grass, kinda keeps a citrusy draw from across the top half. As it finishes off it gets a bit more on the sweet end of the citrusy fruits and perhaps some malts and some yeasty things dancing gracefully upon notes of the fruits with phenols and dry earthy stuff. Overall dry and clean with a crisp and fruity/citric acuteness. Feel is well carbonated with a fluffy medium body that plays off the dry crispness which seems to really keep a good hold without getting to strong like some wines or overly yeasty ales. A good little drinker thats smooth, dry, crisp, and fruity with just enough play of yeast and phenol things to keep you intrigued to continue til the glass sits empty.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Bottle pours an ever so slightly hazy pale yellow, large rocky white head, lively carbonation, with attractive lacing. Spicy nose, slight citrus or corriander, with some floral aspects. Only slightly dry and musty. Sweetness does not transpire into the flavor tho. Spiced, albeit muttled and rather dull/unsweetened. Average body, mouthfeel isnt as thick or spritzy as I would have thought based on its asthetics. Finishes clean, rather quick, somewhat dry, with a slightly yeasty/bready aftertaste. Nice aroma, just didnt follow through on taste. Not bad, but kinda boring.
