jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, sugars, light malt and quite a bit of fruits. Medium-bodied; Strong sugar flavour of apricots and pears with a little yeast note, some lighter malt and wheat notes and a bit of floral and grassiness on the end. Aftertaste shows more sugars than anything else with an emphasis on yeast and wheat with the rest of the flavours related to sugars, fruit and a light sweetness. Overall, a surprisingly nice ale with a good yeast characteristic and some smooth fruity notes. Yet another example of a great beer that you can find almost everywhere over here that no one thinks anything of! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased for €2,25 from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 12-August-2013 sampled a few hours later in my hotel room here in Sainte Catherine, Brussels, Belgium on 12-August-2013.

Indra (2673) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2013
750ml bottle. Lightly sweet, fruity, herbal aroma, with notes of honey, melon, pear, powdered sugar, some toasty, bready malt and faint hop spice in the background. Clear light-medium golden in color with a lasting, foamy head of white and gobs of lacing. Flavor profile is similarly lightly sweet and fruity, with touches of lemon, bubblegum, grassy, green, herbal, spicy hop flavor, yellow cake, honey and closing with a dash of hop bitterness. Effervescent and light on the palate, semi-dry, with a medium body. Pretty drinkable but not what I would consider remarkable.

Light haze on this gold -amber beer. Big pale cream coloured head. Palate is crispy and a little dry. Minerals. Sweet banana esters dominate but are tempered by a nice lemony tang and a pinch of white pepper. Finishes dry with some creamy malt coming through. Not bad!

malrubius (1902) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 22, 2013
750 bottle from Save On. Golden with lasting head and lace. Tart aroma with citrus pastry herbs. Medium honey vanilla peachy sugar sweetness with assertive bitter finish some tartness. Nice creamy smooth soft mouthfeel. Might actually be a touch to bitter. More hops should have gone to aroma. Still very good.

Blonde dorée, pétillance assez dense, col fin mais persistant. Plutôt équilibrée, notes de poivres et de citron, amertume et sécheresse légères sur la fin.

Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass, looks very nice a gold with a nice head that stays throughout, the aroma is spice and not much else, the taste is peperry, a little citrus and alcohol is prominent. Overall a disappointment
