Majek (415) - Ząbki, POLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Hazy orange with medium, quickly disappearing head. Nice intensive aroma of citrus and flowers. Taste is light malty and floral, but everything is dominated but spices and yeast. Very low carbonation and medium body. Dry finish. Average beer.

Xstream (180) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2013
A very satisfying beer. Dry yet refreshing. Has the typical molen flavors but without the overpowering Saaz hop they usually do. It’s a bit more in balance with this one. Some fruitiness, spiciness, mild sweetness and light bitter. Very refreshing on a hot summer day!

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 9, 2013
33cl bottle, served in Irish Pint. Pours hazy orange, flame, with small white frothy head (lasting). Citrusy aroma with some malts and yeast. The flavour is lightly fruity (ripe fruits), hoppy (more evident on the nose though), and quite yeasty. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Drinkable and refreshing, not exactly a Bitter, nor an English Pale Ale...weird but nice.

bartlebier (2235) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2013
33cl bottle, Geers, sampled VI2013 (backlog). Pours a very pleasant zesty and effervescent orange, which is then mirrored in aroma and taste: tangerine hops and a wisp of pale malt caramel working in accord with refreshingly thin mouthfeel. As much subtle flavour as you can pack into a light continental bitter, I suppose. Always in support of tasty & light new summer brews...

KyotoLefty (6909) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from Good Beer. Dry, mineral nose, earthy hops, grass and light citrus, some caramel. Medium amber color with a low head. Light malt flavor, citrus hops, caramel, chocolate. Rather thin and quite metallic, a bit dirty as well, but hops and malt balance well. OK, but nothing special.

ThirstyBird (1880) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Thanks to kiwianer for sharing! Pours a hazy honey color with a loose tan/orange head. The smell is citrus, tangerine, smarties. Taste is tart citrus, tangerine - ends dry and slightly bitter. Light body, active carbonation but finely structured. A tasty 4.5% brew!
