Moebbels (316) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Clear pale body with a large white frothy head. Nose has honey, citrus, coriander and herbs. Taste is sweet at first and is followed by a mild bitter sweet aftertaste. After a while the bitterness adds up on the palate so this is best to enjoyed slowly. Carbonation is fairly soft and works well with this. Palate is surprisingly full and the alcohol is well hidden.

33cl. Bottle. Pours clear yellow with tiny white head. Aroma metal, cellar, earth, citrus. Taste flat sweet. Mouthfeel thin. Not impressed with this. Metal in aroma taste is flat, not something I would recomend.

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Not bad at all. Amber pour. Some sweet malt and little hop. Swam in lake Geneva today. Switzerland is so monied it makes you a little sick, the houses. Almost as beautiful as Domnik. Who doesn’t love the daily croissant run?

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Bière dorée, limpide et où flotte une fine écume laissant peu de dentelle au verre. Des arômes de malts pâles d’où pointent certains esters fruités et un arôme de fruits tropicaux. Peu amère et assez sucrée. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen, peu effervescente et se termine sur des notes légèrement sucrées et quelque peu astringentes

Decent Biere de garde. Not overly special in any area, but generally well made. Aroma - dough and yeast not very strong Appearance - Golden in color,very little haze. Strong frothy head that lingers. Taste = mildly sweet Palate - light/medium body, medium texture. Good level of carbonation. Round finish with taste of bread.
