Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour with small white head. Aroma is fruits, earth, some mild grainyness. Flavour is quite much the same, but also has some slight doughy notes.

29th May 2008. ’Belgian Style Ale’ said the blurb. Hmmm. Really just a mildly hopped ale. Very easy drinking.

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Gold with thin white head. Incredibly smooth. Doesn’t taste of 6%. Some nice citrusy fruits, some hop sting on end. Like Summer Lightning used to be. Good condition fruits are like pink grapefruit, very fleshy. Excellent.

imdownthepub (11396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Pale gold with white head. Light and thin beer with quite a strong vanilla flavour and a little bit of a sicky note. Tart and syrupy with strong alcohol character. Grapfruit in the finish. Reasonable.

Cask, Nottingham Fest 07. Golden with a small head. Aromas are sweet pear and apricot with some floral hops. Flavours are brown sugar and earthy pear with sweet citrus fruit. OK, but too sweet for me.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A light golden beer with a white head. Suprisingly little in the aroma, but otherwise a fairly full bodied summery beer. Light citrus but pretty restrained flavours. Refreshing but disappointing.
