Can @ home from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: cloudy pale blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: floral domination and notes of exotic fruits as mango and litchi. Fresh nose. Taste: very sweet and exotic fruity taste. Hoppy presence but well balanced with the malt. Watery finish. Aftertaste: watery and small sweet bitterness.

Pistacho (37) - SPAIN - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at Café Gaspar. Fruity aroma with grassy and caramel notes. Soft and creamy in the mouth. Balances fruit and bitterness. Perhaps lacks of cereal. Good beer.

vidmidia (61) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 2, 2015
Cor de mel escuro, levemente turva. Espuma abundante de longa duração. Aroma fortemente cítrico e frutado, que se estende ao sabor. Na boca, maracujá, manga e lúpulo. Complexa e saborosa. Retrogosto amargo refrescante, de média duração.

GlassBrass440 (232) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a hazy gold with fluffy white head and good lacing. Big hop aroma, but I’m having difficulty picking out individual aromas. Fruity for sure, maybe some pine notes. Flavours start bready and move to a citrusy hop charicter with a touch of alcohol. Assertive bitterness. Highly carbonated (to the point of detracting from the flavours a bit). Somewhat astringent.

bbertels (180) - NORWAY - MAY 1, 2015
Can. Wow! What an aroma! Hoppiness galore and floral notes, fruity whiffs and yeast tones in abundance. Taste is also almost as fantastic - great stuff!

Martinus (3523) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
Golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, butter, citrus, tropical fruits, passion fruit, American hops. Hoppy flavour, butter, citrus, fresh malts. Fruity hoppy finish, malts, quite crisp and fresh.
(from draught @ the brewery, RBESG 2014 visit)

mcberko (8529) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On tap at The Beer Market, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose brings out pungent floral hops and light fruitiness. Flavour is pretty intense for a pale ale, with piney hops and tropical fruits. Quite intense on the hops for a pale ale. Very well-constructed. Excellent.

venom666 (513) - Elche, SPAIN - APR 28, 2015
Amazing can design. Hazy orange color with big white off-head. Aroma is very tropical and citric, mango, peach, grapefruit, orange, lime and a floral backbone. Taste is amazing; again, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, lemon and orange peel, with a moderated but persistent bitterness. A great example of how an APA should be brewed.

Really liked this, good us style brew, hop forward with a dry finish without being overly bitter.
