Draught at TND: Aroma of must, slight blue cheese, light funk, and a hint of malt. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, milky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of pale malt, hops, slight grass, grain, and a tiny hint of citrus. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Pale malt, grain, grass, slight hop finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11 ounce goblet - $9.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: This one is hazy, opaque, and dark orange-amber in appearance with a thin layering of snow white foam. Copious lacing.
Smell: Honey-toned, pale malted, bready malts with little, light touches dried herb, green grapes, lemon rind, and vague florals.
Taste: A sweetish taste of raw, organic honey over cracked pale malts with a light toastiness, and a light caramel quality. Herbal, lowly citrusy hops, very low bitterness. Hint of grapeskin, a bit of pulverized apricot. Drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: It’s alright, I am appreciative of the relatively low alcohol.

(Bottled, 2001 vintage @Kulminator) Slightly hazy golden (opaque brownish with the huge amount of yeast found in the bottle) with a medium, lasting and lacy head. Sweetish-caramely, surprisingly fresh, camomile-hoppy aroma. Very strongly hoppy, crisp flavor. Hops are very well preserved, turning the brew into a sweet-flowery hop soup. Very nice palate for a 4.5% brew! Medium-bodied, refreshing, low-carbonated, slightly acidic. An excellent, hoppy brew with a pleasantly low abv. Wonder why they quit brewing this...

Poured on draft at gnome week at the galley. Pale hazy yellow with a rather frothy white head. Aroma is kinda odd yeasty wheaty. Not great in that regard. Taste grew on me with its wheat influence, but still just seems to be lacking something. Overall, good, but I don’t think Id bother with it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle, no idea of the date. Translucent dark orange, fast-fading large-bubble snowy head...spicy, grapy nose, very yeasty and sharp, almost unpleasantly so at first but nice when quite warm...sourdough, carroway, sour berries at the front of the dry mouthfeel, moderate sweetness turning to mouthpuckering stillness at the finish. Interesting, maybe not entirely my tulip of choice but worth the one try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle stated that this was still good until end of 2024. Poured a hazy yellow with an orange tint and medium sized quickly dissolving head. Malty flavor with light citrus and maybe an odd spice (meaning I can’t put my finger on it). A touch of paper underneath. Beer started sweet and closes lightly acidic and dry. I was worried about the beer since I don’t know the age and it is only 4.5%.

Summer beer from Achouffe, dating from when they were still independent and had a beer for each of the four seasons. Tasted as an old beer at 5 years of age, some cardboard in the nose, but otherwise well-preserved, soft, friendly and yeasty character, dryish, some peach, aromatic hop bitterness in the finish.

On tap at Toronado, SF. Deep blonde to orange pour, decent looking with a moderate cloudiness and a struggling-to-exist head. Soft herbal notes very understated in the nose along with some floral and malty overtones. Decent sipper, a bit earthy and hoppy but ultimately not so much character.
