reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is mild fruits. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a zesty rind bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation. A decent strong Belgian blonde that is worth trying at least once.

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and pale malts, some floral hops, and some sourness. Flavor the same. Lots of carbonation. A decent beer, but not sure if it’s bad or supposed to be sour.

TheBeerGod (5466) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. Murky gold with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is candied grape, funky yeast, tart berries and sour fruit. Tastes of grape bubblegum mixed with lemon juice, tart berries, funky yeast, wet leather, earthy notes and flowers. Body is medium but somewhat thick on the tongue with a dense, prickly carbonation. Soft warmth from the alcohol as well. Finishes with more candied grape, tart berries, lighter lemon juice, wet earth, damp leather, fresh cut flowers, funky yeast and sweet malt.

mansquito (3930) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery, NY 330ml ($5): Pours a peachy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is very yeasty with some sour ale notes. Aroma is most certainly superior to the taste of this beer. I was expecting something more substantial, but this is almost watery (partly because it was a massive gusher). Beer is very slightly sweet. Barely at all sour. A wee bit fruity. Yeasty is the thing going on the most. This is ok, but a bit disappointing.

altonbrownd (3712) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet. Hazy orange body with medium oily head. Nose is sweet, fruity. Taste is quite sweet and sour. With some hops and fruits coming through. Refreshing slightly sour finish. Enjoyable.

Nice balance of sweet and fruity with some sourness and a touch of funk. Refreshing. Would happily drink again, but not exceptional and would not go out of my way to have it again.

lachrymalisis (419) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
big flavors of tart white grape, slightly sweet residual malts, fruity citrus and a surprisingly dry finish for such a high gravity beer. nice crisp and tart with a mellow lingering sweetness that tastes of delicious white wine and grape juice.

drpimento (2403) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Poured this at a good temperature with a smallish off-white, foamy head that settled right down and a bit of lace. Color is a clear amber with a couple of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, citrus, malt, grass, spice. Flavor’s like nose, a bit vineous, very slightly sweet, a bit fruity, some tartness, some bitter. Body is ok, ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, on the pungent side, and longish with a little alcohol warmth. Ok beer, not one of the best.

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow blonde color with little to no head and very subtle aromas; ripe pear with a touch of brett and hints of spicy zest. This beer packs a wallop of flavors ranging from sweet stonefruit, lemon zest, honey wheat bread, clementine, limestone, spicy yeast and more. Very interesting blonde I do declare.
