Somewhat opaque, golden yellow, white lacing foam head. Barley aroma with some sour notes. Decent beer taste, again little sour tones present, small citrus too. (Arnhem 201411)

11.2oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a slightly murky slightly brown/yellow body with a larger bright white frothy head. Aroma is sort if lemony urinal puck, Belgian yeast, berries, corriander. Rather fizzy body, aggressive carbonation, lighter body. Flavor is perfumey, dry old bread, crusts, berries, corriander, Belgian yeast. Meh, its okay but not loving the fizzy body.

Une très bonne surprise pour cette bière bien équilibrée et avec une belle personnalité malgré le taux d’alcool assez faible pour mon goût. Amertume comme il faut, légère acidité, et des notes de citron et de poivre qui lui donnent un côté herbacé très agréable et rafraîchissant. Bref, une bière de consommation courante de très bonne qualité.

reggiedunlop (3180) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has light spice...coriander...slight grassiness...sage. Flavor follows suit...mild and clean and slightly herbal. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and herbal.

SinH4 (152) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Hazy yellow color with huuuge head. Spicy-yeasty, hoppy citrus aroma. Taste is light, a bit more citrus, bitter oranges, marmalade. Light body, slightly metallic finish. Decent, but a bit boring.

Narancssárga szín, ujjnyi tömött fehér hab. Illata citrusos és korianderes. A szénsav teljesen belesimul. Íze élesztős határozottan fűzseres, leginkább borsos.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy bright golden with white head. Nose is funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, marmalade. Tastes funky and yeasty, with hopcitrus, medium palate heft, Ok but not great.
