blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of floral, herbal hops and citrus fruit. Flavour is hoppy and citrusy along with some grain and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. I enjoyed this, I’d have it again.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2011
500ml bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Hazy orange, smallish drool of head. Slight acetone aroma, apricot and flowers. Taste follows, a little dry and papery, bitterness is all tattoo girl - I mean floral. Watery body, a bit astringent, mildly carbonated with a somewhat pungent floral finish. Ehhh .

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Orangée opaque, col blanc avec qcq sédiments. Arôme houblonné, bonne note de levure, houblon herbeux. Un palais centré sur le houblon, levure, herbeux avec touche de citron. Profile malt pale reste discret mais cette dernière a un côté levure et houblon qui ne sont pas désagréable.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Hazy dull tan. Thick head. Lightly fruity hop nose with hints of wood - kind of cascadey. Soft fruity hop, slightly toasty, biscuity malt. Good balance. Some yeasty character in the finish.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - MAR 13, 2011
wow, this was definitely unexpected. most of the micros ive had from ireland are in the "not bad" range, but this goes into the "delicious" peak of blonde ales that have the hoppiness almost to a pale ale level. fruity and citrusy with mostly a grapefruit flavor, golden blonde in color, duh!, but just absolutely delicious, i cant wait to try the other offerings from this brewer and a great step forward for irish microbrewers.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle @ The Abbot in Cork. Poured in the yeast, and it looks good like that, has a lasting head. The aroma and flavors are surprisingly hoppy with a few baskets full of flowers adding complexity. Much better than expected, and could easily drink more.
