PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle from Beer Bistro. Hazy golden colour in a tulip glass. No head. Aroma of yeast and citric hops. Medium bodied. Flavour of pear, citrus fruits and lemon rind, leafy hops and wildflowers. There’s a lactic element to it; I’m not sure if it is intentional, but I like it. It is very much like an old blue goat cheese, nice and complex. Long citric finish.

NordicV (1366) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2011
Lejongul och lätt grumlig av jästfällning. Vitt kraftigt skum. Doft av hö och blommor. Torr med en trevlig beska som drar åt citron och grapefrukt.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
Little bit hazy. Unfiltered lager colour e.g. orange yellow. Small but sturdy head. Taste is sweet & hoppy. Arome has ground and basement going on. After taste is long and bitter. Some how I felt this might be better if made stronger.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
33cl. bottle from a beer retailer. It pours an odd hazy light orange liquid with many great yeast spots floating, and with a thin white head that somehow lasts throughout the beer, but leaves no lacing. The aroma is light, but quiet complex: a distant herbal hoppiness mixed with a notable fruity overall, with hints of citron (mostly orange and a little lime), mango and light peaches, along with a good deal of yeast. It sadly fades as it evolves. It tastes likewise, but intenser. It is medium sweet, with a very pleasant citrusy sour touch and low-medium bitterness. It is mildly but lively carbonated and medium bodied; very pleasant in the mouth. It ends long and dry with a nice herbal and fruity (citron and mango) aftertaste. Very nice presentation (though it lacks a customized crown cap) for a very drinkable and natural tasting beer that could easily be better with a couple of fixes.

Pretty easy drinkable beer. Easy to forget also. Colour was it’s best feature for me.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Hazy gold/orange colour, fairly sized head. Will also give a small note to the rather quaint, half-psychadelic label - I approve. Aroma is impressively complex, sweet with hints of bitterness, quite floral and citrusy. Taste is wonderful - citrussy, hoppy, grassy. Very tasty, but with a bitterness underneath that adds a lot of depth and character. Beautifully balanced, very hard to fault. Impressed. EDIT, 31/12/12. Keg at North, this time - found it a lot more impressive than is remembered. Really complex nose, great taste, great palate. Added 1 aroma, palate and overall point.

JDBaker11058 (1516) - Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Appearance: hazy blond, with a decent whitish head and generous lacing. Aroma: sweet, grassy, floral and a little wheaty. Taste: grass and hay, with citrus, flowers, and a little biscuit; more bitterness than the aroma indicated. Finish: dry, lingering light bitterness over crackers. Notes: Seemed like a middling Belgian Pale Ale, rather than a golden or blond. Palate was on the watery side.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2011
25 cl, tap @ Poatersgat. Blonde hazy beer with nice lacing white head. Aroma of hops, bitterness, orange peel and citrus. Taste is hoppy, grassy with cirtrus notes in it, and a malty background making the beer milder. Orange peel and other fruitiness also comes to the foreground towards the beer. The aftertaste is nicely bitter. Only one remark: Taras Boulba is better :-)

Kristall-König (2451) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Geruch zitronig. gewürzig. Antrunk leicht säuerlich, Gewürze. Mittig verblassende Säure unter dem Eindruck vermehrter Würzigkeit. Hefige Töne im Hintergrund. Staubig-holzig und immer bitterer im Abgang. Gut gemachtes Bier. Test vom 19.6.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche
