White, present and lasting head. Golden yellow, haze. Intense and medium persistent aroma: citrusy, hop, fresh grass, unripe fruits, a little bit spices. In your mouth is like you expected; marvellously bitter, sparkling and drinkable. Medium-light body. Slighltly astringent. The best if you like both Belgium and bitterness.

This was gross. Smells very citrusy and hoppy. Appearance.. slightly cloudy golden yellow with a thick head that leaves an inch of lacing or more. Flavor- HOPS!!! If you like hops, you’ll like this... but I just don’t. at all. Overall impression... yuck. Very bitter.

not much to talk about. it gives a weak feeling with some spices, the hops are there. Gives a hay like flavor. cant recommend it.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2008
The aroma is grassy with yeast, flowers, and malt. The appearance is golden with a slight cloud. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is like water. Overall it’s not that good.

renffisch (869) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
draught @ the rake. lovely fresh hoppy golden, slightly hazy beer. Quite citric nose and grassy, it keeps the freshness all the way to the end. hoppy, fruity and dry fresh flavour. very drinkable light beer.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
Hazy golden-orange in colour, very large and lingering white coloured head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of citrus, spice, pepper, funky with an underlying sweetness, yeasty. The flavour is lightly spiced, lemon citrus, some pepper, brett like characteristics, hops. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long as the bitterness starts to pick up.

This is quite nice, some brett like flavours here make this quite fun to drink. Bonus points for making such a low alc beer have so much flavour.

750ml bottle obtained in a trade with kmweaver, thanks Ken.
Opened on February 2, 2008.

Clkoudy straw color with a tall soapy white head. Funky aroma of yeast, hops and some fruit. Taste is fruit with hops and yeast on the back end. Different. Tasty.

Tasted at SDCF. Clear yellow with a foamy white head. Good strong hops, Belgian yeast, and barn yard funk aroma. Crisp bready fruit citrus with a good pungent herbal and bready taste.
