Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange with a good cream head. Aroma of spices including some fruit and yeast. Flavour is fruity and yeasty, slightly bitter yeast. Ends with spicy orange notes. ABV is really well hidden.

Fules (798) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 5, 2016
Semmi hab! - nem semmi! Kiváló búzasör alap, a citromos jelleg sincs túlzásba víve. Közepesen szénsavas, és azt is érezni, hogy több az alkohol, mint az átlagos búzasörökben. A komló is karakteresen jelenik meg, ez utóízében is megmarad, bár nem sokáig. Alig-alig érezni némi keserűsséget.

Medium head, hazy gold to amber. Strong aroma, fruity and yeasty. Sweet, with alcohol notes. Medium body, a little thin texture, long finish.

Shark_Pants (609) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2016
Golden with lots of suspended yeaat and small fizzy head. Lots of funky belgian yeast character in the aroma, along with multigrain bread, bubblegum, some banana and spicy phenolics. The taste has a sweet honey and wheaty maltiness, with barnyard character, lots of phenolic spiciness, a little banana and bubblegum. Medium bodied, acidic bite helps balance the sweetness. Really good but probably not to everyone’s taste.

Bottle - slightly cloudy dark orange, small white head. Decent orange lemon aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth. Good tasting though bit fizzy - better off when left, but disappointing.

AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
BB 27/05/15. Acquired via trade with Chopz. 330ml bottle. Pours a big foamy off-white head but doesn’t stay very long. Has a hazy orangey appearance with tons of sediments visible. Weak lacing. Aromas are very yeasty and fruity, citrus and floral hops. Flavours are mostly on the yeasty and citrusy side, some subtle notes of spices and hints of tropical fruits. Full bodied mouthfeel with fairly excessive carbonation.

ranthero (48) - BRAZIL - JUN 8, 2016
Bela aparęncia alaranjada, turva e com espuma persistente. Fermentaçăo muito elevada para o paladar quando comparado com o leve sabor frutado. Esperava mais.

Buitengewoon lekker blond bier. Ongefilterd, zacht zoet en met een klein lief bittertje op de achtergrond. Smaak van citrus en kruiden. Echt erg lekker.

Pyrmir (5528) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2016
330 ml bottle in Leuwen. Golden with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is malty, soft yeasty, slight banana and faint alcohol. Taste is super smooth and nicely balanced with the yeast. Some banana and hay. Good!
