Shark_Pants (352) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
Most immediate impression is the huge carbonation as the bottle gushes as I open it. Unsurprisingly, pours golden with a large bubbly head that leaves a huge amount of lacing. Fairly indistinct aroma, with just some hints of belgian yeast, bread and honey. The taste is fairly hoppy sweet with noticeable malts but again a little underwhelming. Medium bodied. Alcohol tastes stronger than the labelled 6.5% ABV. By no means bad but not spectacular either.

maekchu (2509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Fruity hoppy nose, with caramel, lemon, and a strange rubbing alcohol note. Hazy orange/amber color, a thick fluffy white head, and good lace. Citrus hits right away, but suddenly turns rotten, some grass, bad apples, yeast, and a bit of phenolic stuff. Medium body. The alcohol is way too apparent. Almost as if it were fortified. Not so pleasant.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is typical blond with more floral notes. Flavour is high carbonated floral malt with a touch of pepper. It tingles!
