jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Light fruity aroma with a hint of alcohol. Light flavor with notes of wheat, fruits, light spice and a touch of yeast. Sweet and fruity finish.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Herbal and citrus with a decent malt backbone. Pretty darn good.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle, under the label Posca Rustica, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and a few others. Golden body, average white head. Sweet grainy aroma, some yeast, tinned pineapple. The palate is much the same-- grainy, perhaps even a touch corny, sweet pineapple juice. No "herbs and spices" as advertised, just quite a dull, simplistic golden ale. Not impressed.

tabernarius (34) - Pisa, ITALY - NOV 26, 2013
Typically Dupont, with a fine and complex nose dominated by the profile of the brewery’s yeast; spicy and warm. A minor classic in the Dupont catalogue.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle, caged and corked, under the "Posca Rustica" label. Nice classic visuals, golden orange and light, slightly opaque. The aroma is darn like pineapple juice, straight up. This drinks with a nice fruity essence, overall -- a definite tropical fruit tilt being the primary component. Very evenly balanced, with any herbal aspects being intertwined quite well. Fun.

scottw86 (1103) - Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Poured a hazy light orange color with a large white head. Aroma is very nice with lots of fruit and yeast. Slightly tart with oranges. Taste is fruity with a fair amount of tart yeast notes. Lots of carbonation and alcohol is slightly noticeable. Slightly creamy texture with some nice hops to balance things out. Overall very good.

Eructoblaster (3015) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a huge, lasting white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, herbal, and citrusy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander and candy sugar notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter/sour finish. Definitely meets my expectations!

lliams (196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2013
lively carbonation, bright, pale orange. yeasty, bready aroimatics with some sweet spice. flavours of layered spices, pale, grainy malts and cleansing bitterness. a definite alternative to an aromatic white wine when food matching. shityeh nice one

Silvan7 (700) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle @ home. Colore giallo paglierino carico , velata, con riflessi dorati. Schiuma bianca abbastanza fine e non molto persistente. profumo classicissimo di lievito belga, sicuramente speziata, si avvertono anche delle erbe aromatiche. Il gusto è piacevolmente dolce all’ingresso, ma poi si sviluppa una freschezza che sembra provenire in parte dal luppolo ed in parte dalle erbe con cui è aromatizzata. Non ha astringenza, ma la definirei abbastanza secca. moderatamente alcolica, non scalda molto la gola.
