TET (1438) - FINLAND - MAR 9, 2014
A hazy, orange-yellow beer with a big, creamy and blond head. Nose is fresh and tropical, mangos, citrusfruits, some mandarin. Taste of tropical fruits, mangos, citrusfruits, mild bitterness, quite dry. Refreshning, medium bodied, medium carbonation. The fruits have the main part in this psychedelia. The straightforward and tropical fruity beer, tastefull.

Santiago35 (2) - UKRAINE - SEP 22, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows floral, spicy and grassy hops along with some biscuity and bready malt. More of the same malt as flavours, with not much of the aforementioned hops though. Carbonation is much too high.

Fin (7029) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle picked up at ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon. Consumed at a wonderful house owned by the Blackwell family in Appleton, Oxon, Saturday 31st August 2013 Great label but a rather average beer. Typically Belgian with some spice, yeast and a little buzziness, gold/light amber in colour, it’s absolutely fine but with few interesting or distinctive features that set it apart from 101 other Belgian beers doing the same thing. Nice but nothing earth shattering. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov12 3.3
