UjoKlobasa (399) - 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 (382) - 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 aren’t 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. I’ll probably have again though.

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.

Scrumpy369 (258) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow colour with a longlasting white head. Nose is grassy, zesty. Taste is also grassy less zest. Dry and refreshing. This is the beer that got me into craft, and I love it ever since. Thx Krepo.

Bottle in Belgium. Clear yellow body with a large white head. Light hops, yeasty notes, alcohol notes. I had it after a ten hour drive, so it was very needed.
