bonkiedeaap (403) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is golden colored and pours a small white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is fruity with tones of green apples and vanilla. Further a bitterness with tones of nuts and spices (pepper like). It has a slightly accessible sweet flavor where you can clearly taste the corn. A pleasant taste with character and kept simple. Just enjoy without your taste buds are driven to extremes.

maekchu (2632) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Mild yeasty nose, with light malt, spice rising from thin effervescent carbonation, and sloppy lacing. Clear golden straw color, thin head. Sweetish fruity initial, hits of alcohol right away, some peppery notes, and bitter and lightly dry in finish. Medium-full body. Seems quite wheaty. The alcohol is rather too warming. Still, quite tasty.
