Tulip snifter from bottle. A: absolutely amazing, lemon, coriander, orange peel, hay, grass, slight pine, and slight lime. App absolutely gigantic head- 5 finger with 1 finger beer, perfectly white head, and perfectly hazy golden wheat color. T: slight sweetness and bitterness, some lime, lemon, orange, tree bark, coriander, and white grape juice. P: tremendous bubbles, exceptionally smooth all the way through, and an incredibly long lasting aftertaste of slightly dry pinneapple juice. Absolutely prefect! My first and only 100 point beer! I have rated well over 1500 but not in this app and it is not possible to transfer my excel document to this app. A must try and Love!

HuskerTornado (21) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 27, 2014
330ml bottle poured into Duvel glass. Pours a bright golden honeyburst color with a tall fluffy white head that has very good retention and leaves a lot of lacing as it dissipates. Smell is of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, and light and citrusy fruits. Taste is of sweet malt and bitter hops up front, picking up the light fruits and citrus from there along with herbal spicyness and the 8.5% alcohol comes in to say hello. Finish is clean and dry. Mouthfeel is smooth, nicely carbonated, and almost creamy. Overall, one of the best beers on the planet. Refreshing, crisp, flavor packed, and easy drinking, even at 8.5%.

Percy0103 (114) - MEXICO - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. 330ml. A yellow beer with a medium size creamy head and a considerable amount of gas. Aroma is difficult to describe, but I think there is lot of malt, wheat and alcohol. Taste is bitter, well-balanced and with some carbonation and astrigency. This was the first craft beer I ever drank, so I have a soft spot for this one.

MSBrindbergs (233) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Flaska från SB. Lätt dimmig ljusgul vätska med mkt luftigt vitt skum. Doftar jäst, örter, parfym. Syrlig smak, päron och kryddor. Kraftigt kolsyrad. Något sträv i munnen. Inte min favoritstil... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edsspoon (327) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle - pours cloudy straw colour with a crisp white head which fills up the glass. Aroma of berries, banana, bready yeast and some hints of bubblegum. Taste of berries with hints of blackcurrant, followed by yeast and bread with some raspberry and peppermint hints and light bitterness coming out towards the end. Fairly spicy. Light body, high carbonation.
