erickok (5037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2016
A true classic. For me it’s the fermentation and precision that make this stand out, in all its reasonably simple style origins. Everything just feels right, from the hop mix to the soft but yummy bitterness. Would drink all the time (if not for availability and price). (33cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

rjplumer (935) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2016
A pleasant orange and grapefruit aroma. Hazy orange body with thick off white head. Dry crisp citrus taste with a mild bitter bite. Thin bodied but don’t think of it as a lightweight. Finishes with a mild citrus tartness. Excellent brew.

ciocanelu (899) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 11, 2016
Slightly hazy light orange color with off-white head. Aroma has mostly citrus fruits like orange and grapefruit. Taste is also citrus forward, a bit of sweet malt at first but gets quite bitter on the finish and aftertaste. Lingers with grapefruit pith and pine resin. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Quite good overall, a classic example of an APA.
