Shark_Pants (157) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours a cloudy gold with a nice 3 finger head in a tulip glass. Overwhelming aroma of citrusy hops, but quite pleasant. The taste is bread, pepper, grapefruit, with big hops as the description on the bottle suggests. Very dry on the palate with a slight metallic aftertaste. Overall, not a bad belgian ale.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle with MICHAEL JAMES. Transluscent, honey coloured, nice uniform looking thin head. Dry throughout. Hay, dry hope, a bit of tobacco and very slightly moldy aroma. More hay in flavor, some pinot grigio, faint fruity flavors including apple/peach/pear. A bit of perfume/citrus in the aroma as well, I realized shortly after starting to drink.

nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2014
Strong aroma of herbs, hops and fruit. Appears hazy and golden with a thick white head. The taste is medium sweet but very bitter overall and especially dry in the finish. This makes for a long finish. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy and pleasant. An odd beer, but not my style.

Torrefacto (516) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2014
color dorado bastante tupido y espuma blanca densa y persistente. Aromas círticos, herbales y pan. Cuerpo ligero, el sabor de la levadura es evidente y tiene un final cítrico, herbal y seco. Bien.

HerrBierkoenig (216) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2014
From 0,33l bottle. BBD: 04/09/14. Pours deep hazy straw-milk pale yellow liquid, medium frothy white head. Aroma: yeast, malt, light banana, Taste: light sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light sour. Very fresh taste, pleasant, hoppy. Strong yeast and hop taste. Palate: light body, creamy/sticky texture, lively carbonation, long intensive bitter finish. Very drinkable. Overall: Nice, fresh drinkable Belgian ale, but lacking more aroma and taste. Perhaps also less yeasty taste would be a good step.

b33r (668) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Pale gold color with large fluffy white head that diminishes leaving thick rings of lacing. Aroma is light, hoppy and floral and citrus. Flavor has nice bitter hops, with spices and bready yeasts, and a clean finish. Pretty good overall, strong flavor and easy drinking.

Poured from the bottle, hazy golden colour with a white head. Hoppy aroma and the taste to match.

Lothore (546) - California, USA - APR 18, 2014
A- Pours a deep, hazy yellow with a small, off white head. S- Yeasty, wheat. T- Yeasty and bready up front, moving in to a sharp grapefruit bitterness that lingers on the tongue. M- Creamy, medium/low carbonation. D- Decently drinkable brew. Not really my cup of tea but I don’t mind it.

Davhgbrew (931) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Aroma is lemony and slightly solventy (in a fresh enjoyable way) with hints of wheat and floral hops. Pours a beautiful cloudy yellow with a huge frothy white head that lasts and floating dark yeast sediment. Sips very dry and tart with very little sweetness. Slight cellar like nose as the beer warms. Very reminiscent of a 1809 berlinner weiss in puckering dryness. Pronounced bitterness, no alc flavor, but a slight warming finish. Slight apple like fruitiness, but dominated by bitterness that attacks the tongue without much hop flavor. This is a fantastic, refreshing beer that I could drink all day at a bbq or with some grilled fish.
