tlind2 (1244) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2009
330 ml bottle. Cloudy golden color, white head -- reminiscent of wheat beer. Appealing aroma of spices and lemon. Nice hoppy flavor with grapefruit and some maltiness in the finish.. Medium body, high carbonation. Not half-bad.

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Beautiful orange lemon color with a light white lace, sweet citrus / yeast nose, first thing that strikes me is how light this ale is, light and lofty on the tongue, can’t taste a hint of alcohol, one of the the most mild belgian ale’s that I’ve had, big bitters for such a little guy, citrus flavors, grapefruit, orange rind, candy like hop/belgian yeast finishing flavor, dry and refreshing, this brew is real thirst quencher! Very drinkable, and worth a try. cool label too.

esox (1171) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2009
Bottled. Purs pale orange and quite clear with a thin creamy head. Hoppy aroma is slightly spicy and resiny. Grape fruit, coriander and orange peel are plentiful. The flavor is surprisingly mellow, medium bitter, slightly spicy and moderately dry in the finish. There are some caremelly malts. The palate is medium bodied, soft and low carbonated. Very easy to drink. Perfect after sauna.

lb4lb (2570) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Pours a hazy orange color with a fizzy white head. Smell is somewhat dry, grassy, hoppy and yeasty. Taste is sharp, fairly well hopped and bitter as stated. A unique belgian ale actually and much better than expected. A touch of the belgian yeast character but its mostly hidden behind a citrusy and hoppy forefront. Pretty enjoyable. Medium bodied and normal carbonation in the mouth, even though the bottle foamed when opening.

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is lightly hoppy with lemony and soapy notes. Well balanced flavor, lemony citrus and iced tea. Not bad.

SaintMatty (5805) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2009
330ml Bottle - Gold/amber with a white head and a slight haze. Hoppy and fresh aroma with grapefruit, tea and some pineapple and lemon notes. Bitter and hoppy taste with some well balanced notes of tea and grapefruit. Great and nice to see a Belgian brewery doing a lower strength beer which you can also take seriously.

kramer (5346) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
33 cl bottle, from Stateline Liquors. Pours a cloudy straw yellow body with a small fizzy white head that receded to a wispy partial covering. The nose is very grassy with alot of pale malt, some yeastiness, and old leafy hops. The flavor is quite unique, there’s a good bit of bitterness, but it’s not really very hoppy tasting. Lots of yeast and a bit of a farmhouse funkiness almost. The malt is very soft and delicate. On the drier side with a fairly light body and nice lively carbonation. Lingering bitter finish. This was pretty interesting if nothing else. I liked it.

DalzAle (2002) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle purchased from John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Pour was light yellow, and had a lot of carbonation. Aroma was a little lemon, but barely noticeable. Flavor was very herbal and bitter. An ok beer, but fairly one dimensional on flavor.
