Hazy amber beer, small white head. Floral notes and sherbet combine to give a somewhat kids sweet nose! Softish palate, semi dry. Mild carbonation. Sweet floral notes, dominate. Segues seamlessly in to sweet and mildly sherbet orange and peach. Finishes dry with the floral notes turning a little bitter. Pretty decent and unique beer which I guzzled with gusto.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - NOV 3, 2012
(75 cl bottle) Orange colour, hazy, medium white head. Smells yeasty and spicy. Aroma is herbal and fruity with a touch of cough syrup. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation, a bit sticky. Interesting due to the gentian, but not one I would especially go looking for.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head, a bit lifeless. In aroma, a strange mix of fruity esters, wild grass, light sulfur, and ricolla candies. In mouth, a strange sweet candy sugar with lemon, Ricolla, a tad unfermented, OK. Bottle from Total Wine Summerlin for 2.99$, about 1 month old.

beersearcher (2315) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Part of the Downtown LA Beer Crawl Italian Beer seminar led by Tomm Carroll. Quite interesting and so different even factoring in the oddity of some Italian ingredients. Nose is very floral and the taste is light and refreshing with some herbal notes.

Leighton (10540) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle shared with cousins on Martha’s Vineyard, MA. Pours cloudy gold with a light, white foam head. Aroma holds some tangy grass. Medium sweet flavor, mild white bread, some lemon and faint herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish of doughy malts, touches of tangy herbs and lemon, light grassy bitters. Lasting doughy malts. Kind of interesting, and decent.
