MarkoNm (1510) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours a clear, darker golden color, topped with a rather small white foamy head. Malty aroma with some bready notes, and some fruits and spices hidden in the back. Taste follows the nose with some intial sweetness, moderate hoppy bitterness in the body with some yeasty presence and some mild spices. Not a bad one, perfectly nice.

Flanfl (246) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden aroma. Medium white head. Light caramel and grass aroma. Flavour of sweet malt, caramel notes. Some citrus toward the end that kick a medium bitter finish. Sessionable and actually much better than the ingredient list sugest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une bière qui contient des produits chimiques ne peut pas être une bonne bière. Celle ci n’échappe pas à ce constat. Goût plat sans saveur, ni relief

Can from France. Golden yellow with quarter inch white head dissipates to thin layer. Medium carbonation, decent aroma. Slight ting in mouth - better when ting weakens.

ClarkVV (4218) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2015
750mL bottle from random mart in Thiais, drunk 4/23/15. I believe it was about 8 months old or so.
Very large white head tops a well-carbonated bronze tinted gold body. Clarity is high, with just a touch of sediment in the bottom. Probably filtered and then bottle conditioned. Head retention is moderate.
Light citrus and floral hops in the nose are quickly followed by rather heavy pepper phenols and plentiful sugariness. That same adjunct-like, powedered sugar/cake icing-like note that we’ve all known to come and love from the bigger Franco-Belgian breweries. Light fruity esters join while the alcohol is well-masked.
Flavor is more of the same. This one is not so syrupy/sugary in texture, though the off-putting sugar fermentation notes are there (waxiness, powdered sugar, pepper) in flavor. Mild bitterness from the hops which add a pleasant, if rather fleeting floral flavor. Very carbonated with a medium to medium-full body and lightly watery texture. For all the different grains they boast of putting in here, there certainly is a great dearth of malt complexity.

Dorée claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Principalement maltée, beaucoup trop douce, sûrement à cause de la présence de dextrose et de fructose (!), pelures d’orange, contient de l’antioxydant E300!!!

KeefOz (1138) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2015
Tasted 22/3/15. Poured a clear amber with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced OK. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma quite malty with subtle yeastiness. Taste malty with a slight tartness and slight yeastiness. Light body. The tartness on the finish not nice for me.
