papat444 (24) - Mercier, Quebec, - SEP 3, 2008
Thanks to Glouglouburp for giving this to me as a last minute extra. When i open the bottle (33cl), i see loads of bubbles rising and not long after, it starts foaming out of the bottle. No time like the present to pour... Appearance: Hazy, golden body with massive foam that doesn’t take to long to form a nice 2 finger head which is fluffed like a cloud as if it were whipped. Aroma: A sweet aroma that i can’t put my finger on (at first). Bubblegum? Not quite, more like a natural sweetness, sugar cane? Closer but not quite. More of a fresh dough smell, bordering on a fresh donut. Flavor: I like it right off the bat. First thing i taste is hops. mixed with some dry fruit maybe? Malt rounds it off quite nicely. Extremely well-balanced. Palate: Carbonation is low. Bitterness felt throughout the palate. Hops are always present but never dominant. Some find of rind-like feel (lemon?). A floral/grassy character is felt which reminds me of a meadow or pasture with are the aromas linked to that. Very easy to drink with enough taste to match. Seriously, this beer puts to shame all beers that sacrifice taste for ease of consumption. The most flavorful beer with a lower ABV i’ve had to date. A beer i would have again in a heartbeat. Definitely put one on the top of your list.

Ambro206 (330) - ITALY - APR 27, 2016
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016: Una classicissima belgian ale, ben luppolata e profumata. Al naso si avvertiono note di pesca e pompelmo. In bocca l’amaro domina la bevuta con un onesto contrappunto iniziale di dolce. Nel bicchiere la birra è bionda con una leggera torbidezza e uno strato di schiuma bianca. Il corpo è medio leggero e la secchezza, unita alla carbonatazione, danno come risultato un bevuta facile e piacevole.

SinH4 (2075) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 22, 2016
Draft at Moeder Lambic. Hazy yellow color with big white head. Aroma is spicy yeasts, green apples, nice fruitiness. Taste is green apples, spicy yeasts, earthy hops, quite bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Amazing low ABV Belgian Ale without too much carbonation or sweetness, like so many Belgians have. Great stuff.

SvanteL (181) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2016
Gul, disig med medelstort vitt skum som fäster på glaskanterna. Doftar gräs och örter, citrus och lite aprikos. Smaken är ganska kärv med mycket gräs och örter, fruktighet i form av citrus plus en rejäl grapebeska, eftersmaken är tyvärr lite syntetiskt tvålaktig. Mycket smakrik för sina 4,5%.
