Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 In bottle at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a yellow colour with a decent white head. Aroma of lemon, white pepper, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with citrus zest also. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Delicious! Also had this on draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of lemon, pine, caramel, banana and cloves. Similar flavours with a bitter grassy hop finish. Moderate carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced with lovely lingering bitterness. Very nice.

LinusStick (3186) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
A nice standard Belgian beer. Nothing to get excited about but a good session beer. Big drawback is the aroma. not much going on there. Light fruit (white grape, peach) but very faint. Pour was cloudy orange with tons of sediment 9which always gets a 4 in appearance for me!) Taste was nice and subdued. Light fruits for the most part with just a hint of Belgian yeast bite. not very full flavored, but this is a session beer at 5.5%. Decent carbonation. Ok beer.

hophop (27) - SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2011
Golden ale with a lot of haze. Aroma is fruity and slightly hoppy - very inviting. Something wrong in the flavour - a kind of phenloic detergent taste - not good. Down the drain I’m afraid.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2011
hazy golden, white frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma has some funk up front, musty, light fruity esters, very yeasty. Flavor much the same, yeasty, grainy cereal, light fruit. Mouthfeel is very chalky, hard to get past.

BelgaBart (51) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2011
Go this from ’De Biertempel’ in Brussels. The smell was amazing, hops, citrus, orange, hints of caramel. Taste : first hits the hops and the biterness from it and it kinda stays all the time. After the hoppyness you can taste the orange again, it’s very pleasant. This is a very summer beer, not very complex, but not bad. The only problem i have is that the texture of the beer is kinda oily and i don’t think a beer should be like that.

prawlie (1473) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 33 cL bottle from ABS Drinks in Winksele, poured into a Westmalle glass at home. Nice creamy head over a lively gassed orange beer. The head disappers quickly though. Smells yeasty, spiced and citrus, its quite nice on the nose. Yeasty and dry hopped. Its alright but it could do with another flavour or two to add balance.
