nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2014
The aroma is a mixture of resin, herbs and fruit. The taste ranges from sour to sweet to bitter in the finish. The body is medium to full, but the carbonation is a bit too lively for a "Grand Cru" beer. It appears as a pretty golden amber. Good marks for the complexity.

rdb84 (91) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Light wheaty aroma, but very nice appearance, hazy and with serious sediments. Tastes resemble a German weissen, but much more subtle and refined. Again, more of a triple body here, with deep and robust (but relatively short) taste development due to alcohol pct. Small touch of citrus, large wheat taste. Quite refreshing. Sediments can taste somewhat bitter, though.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/gold with thick white head. Aroma is clove, alcohol, grass. Taste is mild citrus, biscuit, yeast funk, and strong wheat presence. Well balanced and easy drinker.
