Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 22, 2012
33cl bottle. Yellow / orange with low to medium white head. Nose : yeast , wet laundry, banana, citrus, spices, cake. Sip : Creamy brew with low carbonation. Sweet and little dry. Develops well hopped bitterness on the end. Itís not strong , still is an honest one. Overall itís a refreshing and easy to swallow liquid with a well balanced flavors. My choice for a refreshing drink in the garden.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2011
Draft at Inít Spinnekopke, Brussels. (Had lapin ŗ la geuze as others.) Looks the part of a Belgian blonde, and does the job without drawing attention to itself.

Draught at Spinnekopke. Malty and pilsner-like with some grassy hops in the nose and the finish. Drinkable enough but not at all interesting.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
[3326-20100809] Tap. Fresh corriander seeds and mild leafy grasses in the aroma with later hints of carpet cleaner. Clear, light orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick spotted lacing. Leafy grasses and iceberg salad mix flavour. Medium body has a mildly tart background. Quite nice on the patio, drinkable.
Overheard: "We had the Easter bunny!" -- regarding dinner, lapin a la gueuze
