jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy blonde with a frothy white head. The nose is strong concentrated sugar, artificial lemon concentrate. The taste is sugary angel food cake, light lemon and sweetener. Light body, subdued mouthfeel. I found this to be overly sweet and cloying, an accusation that seems to get levelled at Huyghe regularly...

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Silver paper wrapped neck on a 330ml brown bottle (4.9%ABV), best before Dec 2013: poured into my Berliner Kindl 0.4 Litre tumbler in Mar 2012. The pour was slow, allowing the beer to leave the sediment in the bottle (I prefer it that way). Very, very pale straw body, slight haze and with bubble trails rising up towards a good deep head of white. The smell was citrusy, mild lemon and grapefruit mostly, very summery. Thirst quenching with a tangy bite of citrus flavours, better than I expected: I’m not a huge fan of this style, but this was OK. This carried the flavours well, light and easy to drink.

emartell (221) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 24, 2012
Cerveza con un pronunciado aroma a trigo combinado con la frescura y acidea de la cascara de naranja. La apariencia de esta cerveza es de un color amarillo palido, con una corona de espuma bastante blanca tipica de este tipo de cervezas y una impresionante turbiedad que proporciona la gran cantidad de sedimentos al ser una cerveza sni filtrar. El principal sabor de esta cerveza es a la cascara de naranja que posee, así como al trigo que la caracteriza. Cerveza sumamente refrescante, aun que dista mucho de cerveza caracteristicas de este tipo como lo son la Blanche des Bruxelles y la Hoegaarden.
