labeerinthum (478) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 7, 2016
Bottiglia. Appena aperta la bottiglia si sprigionano mille bollicine. Il gusto al naso occupato dal luppolo. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con bollicine medie. La consistenza del liquido nebbiosa. Il perlage ha bollicine fini. La carbonazione media. Il colore giallo torbido. Il corpo strutturato non pesante. Il dolce medio e lamaro medio, non si surclassano. C anche un accenno di umami. Lintensit gustativa elevata e la persistenza gustativa buona. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di birra impegnativa. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, pane, cereali, banana, resina, fiori, frutta secca e caldo.

Bubbly appearance with amazing foam looks like whip on a Starbucks frapuccino! Light wheat beer typical Belgian excellence

AntonyWilson (97) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 2, 2016
330ml bottle: Pours a clear straw with epic white head that persists. Aroma of rust is overpowering everything. Slight breadiness perhaps. Tastes of bread, some fruit. Bitterness not very prominent. Very crisp. Medium body and high carbonation. Overall not bad to taste but the rusty nose was a bit off-putting.

PlutonowyMan (410) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2016
Kolor z?oty, klarowny. Piana bia?a, wysoka, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzykw, bardzo g?sta i trwa?a. Pozostawia mnstwo zdobie? na szkle. Aromat chmielowy, slodowy z przyprawowymi akcentami. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie, s?odowo?? i nuty chmielowe po??czone z wyra?n? przyprawowo?ci? i zio?owo?ci?. Jest lekko pieprzowy, ostrawy. Goryczka na finiszu, niezbyt intensywna, sucha i wyra?nie pieprzowa. Wysycenie wysokie, pasuje. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

UjoKlobasa (518) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle. Golden grain color, clear liquid, white head. Not really intense aroma and taste, it is pretty light. Aroma of tripel, tin of lemon sourness. Good, but not great.

Shot (411) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden with a massive white head that slowly dissipates to a fluffy quarter-inch head. Aromas of cut grass and bitter citrus. Flavors of sweet malt, fruity esters, cut grass, citrus, bready notes. Slightly tart finish with black pepper. Medium to highly carbonated. Clean mouthfeel. Crisp, peppery, fruity and bready. Delicious.

BIGJOHNO123 (13) - Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
I expected better. Pours a nice golden colour with a frothy head that gets quite thin. It is overly carbonated which distracts your palate from the taste. The aromas arent that prominent. Mainly hops and a little fruit. That taste is similar to the smell. Its not that strong. Perhaps better drank in hot weather for a refreshing feel. Its not technically bad but its not quite got the balance. Ill probably have again though.

CzechTex (127) - - MAY 19, 2016
bottle Much lighter color than I remember from days past, but aroma is satisfying and the feel on the tongue is pleasing. Overall a very good beer and one I should keep in regular rotation. Strong, enough so that the alcohol sneaks up on you....be careful. Definitely worth trying.
