20 May 2011, bottle at one of cgarvieuk’s legendary tastings. light yellow, faintly hazy with a fair amount of sediment. smells like a higher abv lager. a bit sweet with saaz hops and alcohol and honey. thin body and a bit creamy and slightly fizzy. sugary honey juice. ok.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2012
Medium, whitish head over hazed orange beer. Citrus (orange), wheat, spices, orangeliqueur. Again citrus & wheat (or speciality grain...) mainly; possibly coriander, but restrained (enough). Still perfumey, and rather slanted towards the artificial. Warming up, ginger. Soft, velvety MF despite the more than adequate carbonation. The problem with del Borgo - and more Italian craftbrewers - is that their flavours are often a bit forced. This is no exception.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2336) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Rakuten. I thought this was a weizen but it turns out it is a Belgian Pale Ale brewed with Einkorn Wheat. It was a bit of an odd beer, it poured a nice golden copper with a thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma was candy like with citrus notes. The flavor was sweet and tasted a bit like oranges. Some people thought it was sour, some thought it had sorachi ace & someone else thought it was made using Brett... I think it was probably just the odd wheat used in the brewing coming through, quite interesting & unique.

Bottle. Really fruity and spicy beer in wich the yeast plays the main character. Quite interesting.

mmahut (1106) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden copper body with no head. Aroma has light citrus malty touch, little bit acidic. Little bit tropical. Taste has fruity sweetness, light earthy bitterness. Body is full, low carbonation, soft. Very interesting if this is mostly by the grain character.

Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle at T Bois 40. It pours murky golden orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, fruity, tangerine, marmalade, juicy, candy, berry and dried mango. The taste is crisp, bitter, tart fruits, apricot, peachy, and sugar with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. On the sweet side, but not bad. Ok.
