reebtogi (4402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
750ml corked bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves some thick soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma is perfume and floral with some herbal notes. Taste is a herbal hop bitterness with a floral taste and a grainy malt sweetness that finishes dry and yeasty. Medium bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. An interesting brew, but the perfume accents don’t do anything for me.

Helt ok. Inge märkvärdigt men ganska bra. Märks att det är en blandning av veteöl och en blonde. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Andy_ (779) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
330 ml bottle
Clear straw yellow beer with big white head. Pouring the yeast makes it hazy. Aroma has sweet honey, crisp citrus, orange, black peppery Belgian yeast and light tartness. Flavor is sweet with honey and peppery yeasty. Palate is medium full and foamy in the mouth. Finish has a strong bite of bitterness. Aftertaste has some alcohol, yeastiness, creamy honeyish sweetness, light grassiness and mild anise. A bit watery overall. Aroma was really nice but the aftertaste is a bit unrefreshing. Pouring in the yeast doesn’t really have much of a difference to the taste.
