rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2006
(Draught.) Clear gold color, with tiny white head. Nicely fruity and somewhat grassy hop aroma. Surprisingly tasty, lightly alcoholic-sweet flavor of fruity hops, orange rind, a hint of yeast and spices. Somewhat bitter but fruity aftertaste. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Altogether a surprisingly delicious pale ale, especially considering its boring appearence.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2006
(Bottled) Paleish golden with a small head. Grainy-malty, slightly diacetylic aroma with hints of alcohol. Honeyish, mildly fruity, reasonably malty flavor with some but not too much alcohol. Light to medium-bodied, slicky and quite neutral palate with low carbonation. A quite plain, non-irritating bock with little character. Reasonably balanced and drinkable as such, though.

gilvanblight (801) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2006
Golden pour, unfiltered looking, slightly hazy. nice head. Smells watery. Bit of grain, but not much else. Taste is pretty watery as well. A bit of hoppy bitterness, grassy. Not that great at all. Clean dry finish. Easy drinking.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2006
Bottled. A light golden coloured beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet with honey notes. The taste is also sweet and honeyish. Quite cloying really and over-carbonated. A real let down.

TaktikMTL (6021) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2006
Bouteille de 300 ml, provenant d’un giftpack de la brasserie Budelse, achetée à la LCBO d’Ottawa. Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes et de miel. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement pâle avec une densité de bulle presque nulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de fruité sans plus. La durée de l’arrière goût est courte. Palette: Le corps est la texture sont mince. Auncune effervescence en bouche. Légère amertume fruitée en arrière goût. (Rating #412)

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Dark yellow colored, vanishing white head. Honey, hops and crispy fruits in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also fine with fruits, honey and mild caramel, aftertaste has mild hops with sweetness.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Parel? Certainly not nonpareil. How is this a "Belgian Ale," anyway? Maybe it’s the high alcohol, which is not even close to masked. Plastic and spoilt vegetables in the nose, unbalanced bitter hops, some grass and citrus (still better than a U.S. macro, but that goes without saying) and a pale straw colour with little head and spotty lacing.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 11, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma fruity and hoppy with diacetylic hints. Flavour the same. Quite one-dimensional though, so no bonus points for anything.
