Pours an orange unclear beer with a good white bubbling head. Smells and tastes fruity, little bit sour and malts. Bit like a orval. Lively carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2014
Light blond, very clear, very easy drinking. Very soft! Aroma has a bit of lemon washing up liquid, minerals, belgian yeastiness. Taste is light and pretty nice. Hints of triple fruitiness, bit of pineapple, but some citrus to ground it. Decent graininess too. Light bitterness. Good stuff, really liked this both times I had it.

Hallstein (284) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
- From Vinmonopolet Trondheim - Pours with lively carbonation. Large white head and a nice golden color to it. On the nose i get hay, spices, bubblegum, cloves with a slight lemony-note to it. Taste of dry, nice malt, spices and candi sugar. Perfectly balanced with a nice fenolic finish to it. Suprisingly good and complex. Will definately purchase again!

Jado (657) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a rocky white head and fairly lively but fine carbonation. Aromas of lemon, banana, spice and apricot. Taste is gentle fruit - apples and apricots - at the front before a tart lemon note in the mid-palate. Falls away fairly quickly to a clean, gently fruity finish. More light fruit and spice in the aftertaste. Restrained but refined.
