KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2009
330mL Bottle: Pour is cloudy gold/orange w/ a creamy white head. Aroma is full of wholesome goodness. Yeast, light clove, pepper/spice & some citrus. Flavor very much follows the aroma w/ the addition of light spicy hops. Light & creamy mouthfeel. Dry w/ a briefly bitter finish that turns sweet. Alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable beer.

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2009

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2009
Deep, rich honey golden color with a huge head and obvious carbonation. Fruity, grapefruit, orange, pineapple. Spicy yeast. Very refreshing and inviting. Slightly biscuity pilsner malts stand out as well. Very fruity and sweet, but with a pronounced tartness too. Cherries, honey, lots of lemon, some pineapple. Very complex, though a bit too sweet. It is decently balanced, though, by sour flavors, alcohol, and a decently bitter finish. A big beer all aroundócould use a little more restraint. However, the huge sweet-and-sour flavor is quite original and interesting.

notalush (4765) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2009
33cl bottle, labeled as "singing blonde" - I canít remember the last time I smelled a beer and thought, "what the fuck?" - the aroma is like an odd mixture of spoiled apple cider, acetone, rotting fruit, honey, musk/sweat - itís not as vile as Iím describing it, but itís still not all that pleasant - the flavor is sour and sweaty, with notes of acetone, tart apples, pear skins, tangy wheat, flowers, herbs - ends tangy and spicy - not as bad as the aroma suggests - unique, but not exactly in a good way.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 Hazy blond coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Herby, cooked vegetable aroma with touches of yeast and hop. Full sparkling, creamy palate. Finish is sour ending a little dry and herby.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Cloudy, orangey amber with a violent head. Complex fruity aroma, marrying orange zest to spices and yeastiness. Orange zest flavours, some breadiness and spices. Semi-sweet with warming alcohol. A welcome newcomer.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2009
(33cl bottle) Hazy, golden colour with myriads of floaties and a medium-sized foamy white head. Sourish lemon-zesty and slightly sweet malty nose. Sourish and slightly sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Soft malty and distinctively citrus-fruity taste (grapefruit), combined with oak-wood honey flavours; sourish and minimal bitter finish with a touch of medicinal flavours. Not that bad, just not my thing (23.V.09).
