yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. A hazy, orange-yellow-golden beer with a small, white head. Grainy, fruity and hoppy nose, a bit weaker than I would prefer. Grainy flavor with a nice fruityness, finishing rather fruity. Medium body, dry. I guess the hoppy impression in the aroma is due to something else, don’t know what. Overall, the beer is a bit on the grainy side, with the gruit left in the background. (090514)

puboflyons (1873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 25, 2014
From the 330 ml. bottle stamped 41400. Slightly cloudy pale yellow pour with a small, short-lived white head. Aroma of pale grainy malts, herbal notes and honey. Subtle all around. Body is medium and smooth. Toasted grain, sweetness, and noticeable herbs in the taste followed by a slight pepper finale. Drinkable.

Scrapersnbeer (1431) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Spicy grain and white pepper hop aroma. Hazy blond aroma, looks like a wit but the Gruut wit is pale as a ghost. Herbal hops, honey sweetness, and again with the pepper for the flavor. Dry as you would guess, with a strange hairy after presence. Might drink it again, unlikely ever to see it again.

ThirstyBird (1169) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
From tap. Pours a hazy dull yellow with a thick bone-white head. The smell is spice, light malt sweetness, honey. The taste is similar to the nose. The body is a light plus while the carbonation is tight and soft.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle. Light grain, honey, and yeast in the nose. Cloudy straw color. Very mild peach and lemon initial / touch of spice and yeast in mid / finishes with sweet maltiness. Medium-thin body. Mild and pleasant, lightly sweet. Drinkable, but unexceptional.

Bottled, BB 10/01/15, large sample. Clear golden color, medium frothy white head. Aroma of some hop, spicy belgian yeast, bit peppery, hint of grainy malt. Bit sweet in taste, slight corn, bit watery, slight dry. In the finish quite spicy as well. Average belgian styled beer. There is way better around.
