une bière tres désalérante, et équilibré il manque un peu a mon gout de houblon aromatique

Saeglopur (541) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 5, 2015
330 ml, bottled 30/4/14.
Pale yellow, moderate hazy body, with a big, stable, massively lacing, frothy, rocky, white head.
Aroma of grass, hay, citrus, spices, subtle sour fruits, like apples, slight candy.
Taste is a bit faded, most likely because of the old bottle, but still very nice, bitter, a bit dry, with about the same aromas as in the nose, but with the grass/hay notes not as dominant.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, grassy.

Very nice, but this clearly needs a rerate when I get a fresher bottle. Almost one year old, but still crisp, refreshing and with clean, bitter aromas. Feels like a Pilsener with a Belgian twist.

birraiolo (229) - ITALY - FEB 27, 2015
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color oro un pó velato con schiuma bianca fine di buona tenuta. Al naso molto fresca, con ahrumato e erbaceo su tutto, leggere note citrichr. Al palato un inizio secco che lascia spazio all’agrumato per un finale amaro e lungo, un pó di astringente.

davidtjm (661) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Pour is murky gold with a frothy head, aroma is banana, spruce, clove, yeast. Taste is fruity, yeast, strong bitterness, well rounded. Very nice and drinkable, packs good flavour for the alcohol level

Ned33137 (8) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 21, 2015 does not count
Gass bitterness (which is not bad), but almost nothing else (at least nothing I was able to feel). It would be good summer ale, but I expected more. Anyway it’s nice and hoppy and it’s ale.

artemb (16) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 20, 2015
Cloudy with yeast. Aroma: Grassy and flowery hops, like a good pils, light perfume notes, light yeast aroma. Taste: medium bitterness, light malt taste. Pleasant hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall this is a good session beer, more pilsener than ale, with good clean hop profile.

Niall73 (1968) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle at Clapham Beer Fest. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a white head. Fresh zesty lemon white bread aroma. Light body, full foamy carbonation. Lemon, bread, grass, light spice... Clean and refreshing. Must go down a storm on a hot day. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pepinis (82) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2015
Color dorado intenso, presenta turbidez. Buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. Aroma marcado por las notas cítricas provenientes del lúpulo que recuerdan a mandarina y presencia marcada también de bizcocho en segundo plano, pan y levadura belga que otorga un suave punto de acidez. Buena correspondencia entre aroma y sabor. Amargor potenciado en boca, de intensidad y persistencia media. Final seco y de marcado amargor. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación.

rollerton (111) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from SB. A very light body, but a lot of citrus aroma and hops. Eady to drink, but a little too light for me.

R4N5H (170) - SINGAPORE - FEB 11, 2015
33cl bottle at The Great Beer Experiment in Singapore. Light pale blonde colour with a large white head. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits. Dry, slightly bitter. Some citrus, floral pine and lightly hopped. Refreshing and easy to sip.
