bottle pour from cap it appears this is slightly over 1 year old..a bit past recommended drink by date..medium orange color with a fair amount of floating brown sediment..slight haze..good amount of carbonation..nose is a mixture of lemon..grains..lemon rind..wet dough..light bodied with a real solid full flavor profile with some spice..hint of sourness..corriander..all in all a full flavored offering for the low abv..finishes fairly dry with a hoppy cider like quality to it..unique offering and easy to drink beer that pairs well with warm weather

Pours a very murky light golden yellow with lots of particles floating around. Nice rocky white head that settles to a big dollop and a ring and leaves behind thick lacing. Aroma has some light fruit character and cracker malt with some yeast and herbal character. Taste has some herbal hops and light citrus at first then you get some floral and soapy hops followed by white pepper. Has a moderate level of slightly sharp bitterness. Finishes with bitterness and pepper. Medium bodied with light/medium carbonation. Bottle date said this was a month old and the hops were very bright tasting. Would like to get another bottle and set on it a few months to observe the difference.

Nice summebeer with a good white-yellow thick top. Looks like a wheatbeer but tastes like a real Pale Ale with it’s unique thing.

martjoobolut (592) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2014
0,33L bottle. BB 01.04.15. Pours hazy golden with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, citrus, yeast, and hints of grass. Taste is grass, lemon, grapefruit, pine, and some sweetness in the background. Finish is intense pine bitter. Overall: not a big fan of hoppy Belgians, but it’s decent hoppy session brew.

_BaR_ (16) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 17, 2014
Si presenta di un giallo chiaro con abbondante schiuma tutt’altro che fina. Profumo fresco,agrumato. In bocca si presenta molto leggera,dal corpo evanescente. L’amaro esplode sul finale permanendo a lungo.

Douberd (2084) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2014
330 ml bottle from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 4.5% Golden yellow colour on the body, bright and sunny, with a two fingers tall white head, thick and soapy, with average retention, leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma has some maure and bankyard on it, along with some citrus notes and wet hay. Citrusy flavour, soap, quite bitter with the bitterness lasting for long, hops, slight peppery, yeast. Medium thin body with good notable carbonation. Overall very nice.
