sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2012
(Bottled) Opaque yellow with a small head. Very spicy coriander nose with strong lemon notes and wheaty sourness. Flavor is lemony-spicy, pale-malty, lightly sour and soapy with meadowsweet, chamomile and honey. Light to medium body, refreshing, lowish CO2. A nice wit with character. 4244

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2013
Dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-légère, col blanc moyen. Les malts annoncés (dont un de froment) sont bien présents, tout comme la camomille en arrière-goût ainsi qu’une petite amertume houblonnée. Par contre, pas de nouvelles du miel indiqué!

77ships (8120) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
bottle sampled @ Bruges Beer Festival 2012: hazy citrus yellow, touch orange with a small white head, smells like doughy yeast, sweet wheat & slightly fake citrus hops, taste is sweet upfront, tastes like cookies & raw cookie dough, plenty of yeast poured into this one, taste more yeasty than wheat to me, tad watery, some wheat, slightly bitter in the finish with some tad fake citrus hops – camomile? didn’t pick it up but might be just me, didn’t get coriander either, maybe touch unspecific herbs in smell – obviously this need more cookies

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle sample @ 5de Brugs Bier festival. Dorée brumeuse, col blanc. Arôme reste assez doux avec une pointe de crudité et de malt biscuité. En bouche, Un houblon sec allant vers Hallertau et une épice anisé dont je n’avais pas prévu être de la camomille. Malté blé donne ce côté biscuité que je trouve agréable et est suivi par ce profile de malt pils dans un style plus allemand.

bartlebier (3429) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Shared Pour @BBF 02/2014, ZA (M). Fluffy & fragrant wit, slightly over-aromatised either by adjuncts or an overachieving yeast?, switches between wheat wateriness and fine hop armatics, slightly unbalanced maybe, but ultimately pleasant drinking.

Cloudy beige muddy beer, nice off-white creamy head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty malty, grains, bit metallic, some citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, some honey, flowers, spices (aniseed). Aftertaste: citrus, bitter touch, more spices. Not as original as hoped for.
