thebeertourist (5077) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 75 cl bottle. Hazy golden with a healthy head. Aroma cries out grass and hay with a hint of coriander and is rather sweet with the usual Belgian blonde yeastiness. Flavour is very sweet, but good hoppiness makes for a dry, slightly sour finish. Slightly oily texture, well carbonated. A very pleasant beer. This (re-)rating is for the Crianza version of it, grouped together here.

Sweet malty aroma. Pours blond with champagne like bulbs. Sweet malt flavor, with a good hop bite, and a little spice, with a dry finish.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Hazy golden orange with a large, fluffy white head. Sharp, fruity aroma of oranges, wheat, lemon zest, candy sugar, honey, coriander, some fruity esters and a hint of tropical fruit. The body is somewhat thin with a strong, biting carbonation. Its a weird combination, thin but biting. The flavors start sweet, heavy on the honey, sugar and mild citrus fruit. A surprisingly nice, crisp bitterness comes out at the end that seems to be attributable to the hops and carried by the lively bubbles. While its not terrible, this is missing a little variation and depth that keeps it from being its potential.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours an orange-gold with a frothy white head and sticky lace. The aroma largely consists of bread, pears, and oranges...yeasty cookies too. Warm spice and leaning towards a yeasty and bread backing. Cookies and light orange bitterness subside in the middle towards the finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Easy drinking with decent complexity and even some cheese notes.

Teh beer in general is good, it has some orange peel spots which are good. Even the end of the beer is great.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2006
golden orange with medium head...aroma is reminiscient of a Fantome beer (similar yeast profile)..it is heavy in citrus notes..quite clean and refreshing..flavor is citrus hops and such yeast, herbs, and earthy characteristics..

pivnizub (9197) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle: Hazy, golden coloured, small foamy layer; stronger hoppy, spicy and fruity (lemons, lemon oil) nose; sweetish-bitter flavour with some distinctive acidity, light to medium bodied; sweetish-fruity, slightly sourish finish with a distinctively lingering hoppy "tail". Good and moreish...........

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Pours gold/copper with a white frothy head. Smells of perfume, wildflowers, hay, grass, some dough. Tastes of apples, grapes, light wild hints and subtle hops. Finish is sweet with some hoppy eartiness.

mjs (5185) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 (Old rating, From old notes. Tap at Pikkulintu on 2007-12-31.) Clear nice taste of hops. When the beer gets warmer the taste of the malts appear, too. Nice beer. Old score: 3.4

(Re-rate, keg at Maltainen Riekko, 20141121) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and mildly Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, peach, Belgian style yeast, floralness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, floral, and bitter. A tasty but also somewhat weird brew.
