Doghair (283) - Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Nice cloudy golden color with thick white foam. Aroma is hoppy Belgian. No other way to describe it. Very complex flavor. Dry, hoppy, sour, malty with a lightly bitter finish. Tough to describe. Big carbonation. Tingles the end of the tounge. Great beer. Very enjoyable.

Pours clear golden with big white head. Aroma of herbal hops, a bit earthy too. Taste is light bitter and sour. Light body with strong carbonation gives it a good drinkability. Dry finish.

dr.dod (367) - Szeged, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Very intensive fruity ale with interesting spicy and tropical notes. There are sweet malt and warm alcohol in its taste. It has medium body and oily palate. Almost no hop feeling.

Appearance very light, lager like bubbles. Smell has citrus but very light in general. Palate has a nice tinkle to it, not so smooth. Taste fresh, acid, stingy. Overall don’t like it as much as others seem to.

Fruity flavor with hints of wheat bread, lemon, straw and honey. Really likes this beer and specially the aftertaste. Works perfect with mussels and other seafood!

Bottle in a Saltburn Café.ours a hazy straw colour with a big white frothy head. Sharp citrus and spice flavour with some bready yeast notes in the finish. High carbonation gives a full mouth feel. Good.
