Bottle. Blond hazy body with yeasty chunks and a diminishing white foamy head. Fresh hoppy/herbal aroma with light citrusy and yeasty notes. Refreshing and well balanced malty/hoppy taste with yeasty and fruity hints. Leaves a decent bittersweet aftertaste. Enjoyable beer.

AshtonMcCobb (2458) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy lemon colour with some head and very gentle bubble. The nose has lemon sorbet and yoghurt. The taste has more lemon with a background malt note, then yeast with some hops at the end. The palate has medium structure, a creamy texture and a fairly clean finish. Overall, a like this style a lot and it’s a fairly good example.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 13, 2007
Bottled 0,33L. Optimal head of longest persistence. Beautiful blond color much fraught and full, lightly orange with good fizzy aspect. Fresh and prickly aroma with notes of macerated clear grape, lemon and plum. A lot lively and with elevated alcoholic perception. Much sour and acidulous taste. Sweetish final with stum notes.

piscator34 (1959) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 16, 2005
Gold in colour and well carbonated. Floral and grassy hop aromas are there, as well as a bit of malt and a hint of sulfur. It has a nice clean bitterness and a slightly nutty flavor quality. There are some light malt and very mild fruit notes as well. It would make a great lawnmower beer. Thanks to Lubiere for this surprising sample.
