Tap East Birthday Bash. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, no real head. Sweet malt with a little lactose and cream. Light sweet dried fruits. Definite Parma Violets which blend well with the smooth orange - tangerine hops. Whisper of spice. Light white flowers and a touch of sherbet candy. A touch of banane and bubblegum esters before the smooth finish. Complex, sweet and tasty.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at Tap East Stratford. Golden hazy thin white bubbles. Estery aroma. Some medicinal quality too. It’s a slightly Americanised version of a strong Belgian. Plus the Belgians I have are fresher than this. It’s ok at best perfumed and medicinal is not good for paying over three quid for a third of a pint.

Leighton (11899) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Keg at the Tap East Second Anniversary Party - Stratford, London. Thanks to Kenneth for sharing. Pours clear, bright gold with a creamy white head. Nose is rife with pale bread, yeast, sugar, esters. Medium to big sweet flavor with notes of bubblegum, honey, sugary bread and dry lemon. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with flowers, honeysuckle and white bread. Nice offering. Decent.

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Draft. Hazy amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, candi sugar, some Belgian spiciness, light candied orange. Taste is just what the nose says it’ll be. Medium body, some stickiness.

Tmoney99 (11095) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, citrus balanced aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where surpassed.
