maekchu (2556) - 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.

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2015
On tap at Cafe ’t Galgenhuis, Ghent. (Tiny, tiny pub). Sweet malt nose, golden beer with lasting white head. Taste is slight bitterness followed by roasted malt sweetness. Equal parts sourness and alcohol finish it off. Excellent.

thirstyrabbit (1320) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Aroma resembles Abbey Tripels with yeast and spicy hops. Kind of similar to Leffe too. A bit thin mouthfeel with modest hops and medium sweetness. Taste lacks the complexity of the aroma. However, the alcohol is well hidden.
