imdownthepub (10170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2009
Bottled, 330ml from Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium. Gold with white head. For such a high alcohol beer, this doesn’t show it at all, light thinnish malty beer, quite sweet, cane sugar with hints of citrus. Moves towards a more honeyed body on warming, but still no signs of a big bber. Easy drinking, but not too exciting.

martinboer (118) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Golden pour. Sweet, grassy nose. Hoppy and nice and sweet taste. Enjoyable.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle, pours clear gold with a 2 finger white head, shows excellent lacing. Aroma is of light malt, sweet candied sugar, grass, and light alcohol. The flavors start mild with a faintly sour/malt mix that is followed with light hop bitterness and extremely faint alcohol. The 8 and a half is very well hidden, this could pass as a light blond. The mouth is light and slightly creamy and I think adds to the drinkability. Not too bad.

rederic (2912) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
330ml bottle, bright golden color, with some floaties of candi sugar swirling around, sweet honeyed pale malt nose, with a faint corny accent, and a kind of smoky ashes note, a mild faint candied lemon peel aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet honeyish pale malt character, with a faint corny, candi sugar note, with a citrus flowery hop, leading towards a warming, lingering citrusy hop bitterness finish.

Bottled. A hazy light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with a boring fruit note. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of citrus, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
