Zymurgeist2 (982) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Aroma of spice and slight citrus. Pours a hazy goldenrod with a white head that remains on the collar after initially being large throughout. Taste is spicy with bready malt/wheat. Nice defined bitterness at the end.

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 15, 2014
courtesy of Toni - hazy pale blond beer with no foam; aroma of jasmine, nutmeg and rose; medium-bodied, tart and quite highly carbonated; pretty dry, long lively gently spicy and fruity/flowery finish - very interesting

hapjydeuce (931) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottled. Light gold color, clear. Medium carbonation and low head. Aroma of white peach, coriander, parsley, hint of sage and hay. Simple flavor of cereal, green apple, peach and peppery hops. Easy drinking but comes without balance. Watery mouthfeel.

Renobob (616) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Au nez, arômes d’agrumes et de banane. En bouche, bière peu corpulente et arômes qui passent un peu trop vite, pas de longueur. Pas désagréable.

freretoc (626) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 8, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde/blanche, petite mousse très grosse effervescence, une bière avec un goût très froment banane en début de bouche et une fin fleur d’oranger, juste agréable...

I had this at Global Brew. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Taste coriander, orange, crisp. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

agent_persik (385) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2014
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and spice. Dry taste has similar notes with light hops in gently bitter finish. Thin body and lively carbonation. Very refreshing beer.

tmoreau (2368) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12oz. serving, dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed, light orangey gold/straw color, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and wavy spray to the lacing. The nose was light yeast, grass & greenery, ripened fruit, and light lemon & peach. Light bodied, and a little watery textured, light spice as coriander was more noticeable in the taste, along with light carbonation that offered a little spritz to the tongue, and a touch of silkiness to the mouthfeel. Not bad, light & refreshing, but pricey.

0,33L bottle, BB 04.2015. Pours hazy straw with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, wheat, spices, flowers, and perfumy. Flavor is sweet, wheat, spices, citrus, orange, coriander, and soapy. Finish is orange and bitter. Overall: very nice juicy wit.
