jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle@Home. Strong citrus and malty aroma. Clear, yellow colour, nice white head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, citrus, light malty, well hopped. Full bodied, flavourful, well balanced, straightforward.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2013
Dorée-orangée, pétillance quasi-absente de visu, assez pétillante au palais, col blanc fin et persistant. Assez bien maltée caramel, un peu métallique en entrée, présence de miel, coriandre, fruits, réglisse, petite amertume sur une fin moyenne. Plus qu’agréable malgré un ABV qui peut paraître traître.

Copper-red beer.Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Also coriander noticable. Flavour is nicely balanced. Again coriander and citrus but nothin overwhelming. A very nice beer indeed.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a medium, firm head. Grainy-pale-malty aroma with some honey sweetness. Pale, sweetish malt with herby hops and honey hints in the flavor. Fruitiness comes up with yeast. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A quite balanced blonde on the sweeter, fruitiier side. Not far from tripel.

Vaiz (3259) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle at home. Deep orange pour, huge very solid off-white head. Aroma of some floral hops, spicy malts and slight sugar. Flavor is mostly bitter and spicy, with nice hops and quite a solid malt base. Missing some unique character, but a very decent brew. A tiny hint of metal in the finish but that does not spoil anything.

SHIG (3537) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle: Poured a murky orange yellow with a huge off white head. Aroma is veggie and fruit. Taste is sweet malt with a slight veggie notes in the finish.

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange with big head. NOSE : sweet malt aromas of caramel and sugar bread. Yeasty, fruity esters revealing aromas of apricot, banana and citrus peel. SIP : creamy body with medium carbonation. Sweet beginning with a background of yeast and fruits. It develops floral hop character that ends with fair amount of bitter hops. The beer is lightly bitter but just enough to end up with a pepper and metallic like aftertaste. OVERALL : good balance with decent body and carbonation. Easy to drink and 7% of alcohol is well hidden. Can’t go wrong with this one.

77ships (3540) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Trollekelder in Gent. BBF 27/06/2015. Hazy orange with a white head. Nose is sweet oranges, thick BE yeast, candy sugar, lightly hoppy. Taste is lots of candy sugar, caramel, very sweet BE yeast, lots of caramel malts, sweet spices & sweet orange peel, faint hops. Touch higher carb. Not a bad brew within style.
