UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Bottle. Sweet malty thing with a belgian yeast touch. Like a better version of Leffe Blond.

The aromas and impressions are floral above all. Floral with a hunch of grass. It has a nice smell of apricots. Goes with almost everything that is steaked or grilled.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Mine didn’t come in a can like over in that picture over there, it’d be pretty awesome if it did though! The beer poured a deep blonde with a good head and a huge effervescence. The aroma is spicy and salty and a little bit faint. The flavor has a good fruity quality with some peaches and pears with a dry chardonnay character and some good spicy hops.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2009
I really like this beer a lot. It is like a lighter version of belgian styles. No bacteria funk like some other beers in this category. Nice subtle hoppiness - good level of sweetness (balancing, not overwhelming). Very carbonated, but it works. Some of that pruney belgian flavor, but less than most. Coats the mouth. I like this stuff, almost as much as the pepsi throwback I had earlier today.

SaintMatty (6806) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2009
330ml Bottle (Drink, Tallinn) - Golden in colour. Fruity and hoppy aroma with a hint of sweetness. Fruity taste with some nice bitter elements and some slightly spicy malty notes.

aphalo (94) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle 330ml, 7,2%. Clear, golden colour, small white head. Suga, syrup and yeast in aroma. More yeast and some sticky hops in the flavor. Also hints of honey and slighty bitter finish.

McGarnigle (619) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On sale, but still well ahead of drink by date of 09.28.09. Golden body, fab lacy head. Nice body moderate carbonation. Brewed in France, but I cannot help but think of it as a Belgian. Yeasty, earthy, dry. Really not that fruity to me. Some hop presence. Pretty easy to drink.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
500 ml can at Chancey Smith’s in London, ON- Sparkling gold pour unleashes a frothy bleached white cap. Some lace left behind, with some retention. Nose of honey, grains, lemon, grassy hops. Tastes of sweet grains, honey, floral hops, grass, straw. Quite the sharp hop profile towards the finish, prickly carbonation. Good.

SmallOne (79) - SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
A light golden body with a good head. A tad dry witha sweet taste and a frutiy aftertaste. A small touch of alcohol.
