MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2008
(bottle) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a big, slightly eggshell-coloured foamy head. Yeasty, slightly sweet, slightly wheaty malt aroma with a zesty citrusy and spicy touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a pleasantly smooth carbonation. Yeasty, moderately wheaty malty taste with an orange/citrus peel fruit-character and a distinctive phenolic spice that lingers into the moderately dry, bitter and slightly sweet finish. I just saw that someone has changed the style into Zwickel-/Keller-/Landbier, which is not correct imo. When the brewer calls this one a “Kölsch-type beer”, why don’t we just set it as a Kölsch (or at least as a Belgian Ale) ?

RichardGretton (4469) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2010
Bottle. Vibrant yellowy beer with a strong white head. The aroma is lightly bitter and sour fruits, and the flavour is dry with a bitter finish and some sweet notes. Overall a refreshing and bitter beer, with only a hint of fruity sweetness.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2010
Pear coloured body and small head. Prune, some hops, dough. Not very special taste with some minor bitterness. Aftertaste is more dry and saves out from being too boring. Cheap. (1,65 eur, 33 cl bottle)

Bottle consumed at a recent tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a moderately-hazy straw color with a good white head and some mild ringy lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of light grain and has a bit of light hoppiness--mildly herbal and earthy. Classic blonde characteristics with some yeasty spice there as well. The flavor has a bitterness underlying it and then hit on top of that with some light grain and moderate yeast character. Belgian spice. Mouthfeel is light with a dry bitterness in the finish. Quite good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-28-2011

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness and yest. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, fruitiness with some grassy - citrus hoppyness, faint caramel and yeast. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, grassy hoppyness and some fruitiness, faint toffee. Nice hoppyness in the flavor/finish. In the aroma there is more fruitiness than hoppyness - aroma and flavor are not in balance.
