Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016
Pours a cloudy straw coloured robe, topped a coarse fizzy white head showing average retention and very little lacing. Very vivid carbonation. The nose is orange juice and fresh dough. Slight nutmeg in the back. Taste is light orange with bread dough. Semi-sweet with a certain sourness. Very body and very dry finish. Somewhat leafy towards the end. Cheers!

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
Hazy yellow with little white head. Aroma is lots of herbs, coriander, some orange peel. Taste is some hoppy bitterness with lots of dry herbs and only a little sourness. Finish is rather long, like after a herbs candy. Rather bubbly mouthfeel. Very intersting.

Maakun (3618) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy light yellow with short lasting fizzy white head. Lemon, some nutmeg, coriander, olive oil, flowers, quite some wheat too. Loads of spices with some dusty wheat and citrus basically. Medium bitter and sweet. Medium bodied with a bit watery feel. Like a bad gin and tonic, way too much nutmeg too. Not my thing.
