pintbypint (2644) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 28, 2012
330ml blue bottle. Golden pour, white head with sticky edges. Nose has grapefruit and other citrus. Taste has a wheaty note, grapefruit and other fruity hop notes. Finishes a bit tropical and again grapefruity. Mild bitterness, pretty refreshing.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Frankly it just doesn’t make any sense. Hop is just too extreme and sherberty for the body of the beer. Adnams yeasty apple aroma, but the rest is terrible. Mind you according to Jonathan Adnams, it wasn’t made for me anyway. As he says in The Publican, “But this beer is for people who have made the decision not to drink cask beer.

bobolev (8) - RUSSIA - OCT 13, 2014 does not count
golden craft beer, full of flavour with a crisp refreshing citrus taste, wonderful orange peel aromas and crowned with a full white head from the wheat added to the brew. Brewed from a blend of East Anglian malted barley, Boadicea hops and wheat. Chilled and filtered to retain all the freshness, flavour and aromas of unpasteurised beer.

erickok (3693) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
Golden body and small head. Equal aroma, with golden biscuit malts, cracker like, soft modern but modest carbonation. Okay de enable, certainly bitter enough, but a bit underwhelming overall. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

McTapps (4300) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle bought at local Sainsburys in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium to big body. Aroma of flowers and barley. Taste of mild hops, cake, barley, flowers, mild herbs and biscuits. Hints of Belgian yeast. Highly carbonated in the aftertaste. Refershinga nd nice.

MichaelAwesome (4300) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Well, this one was a real surprise. After all those boring bitters and other tryouts this really hit me when it comes up to aorma. Flowers mixed up with vanilla, some sweets, belgian yeast and a small part of hops. Balanced carbo, mild ending. Quality brew with it special moments within. Thumbs up.

jeverszeuge (625) - GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
# 3512 ersma: spindrift bedeutet auf deutsch gischt und soll die spritzigkeit verbalisieren. karamellfarben, klar mit mittlerer verschäumung. der geruch ist süßlich, ein wenig melassig. der antrunk ist dezent süßlich und leicht bitter. zur mitte überwiegt die bitterkeit, die aber weiterhin dezent bleibt. der abgang wird deutlich malziger, allerdings recht undefiniert, die bitterkeit nimmt schnell ab. die flasche ist ok. fazit: dünn und harmlos, mit der spritzigkeit ist es auch nicht weit her. tut nicht not. 10,8,7,6,10,7 - 7,45
