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.

Bela aparência alaranjada, turva e com espuma persistente. Fermentação 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 (5318) - 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!

SkillsFactory (503) - ITALY - APR 11, 2016
Best before 05/08/16, fatta invecchiare per oltre un anno. Dorata opalescente, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di banana, chiodi di garofano, frumento e miele. Al palato stesse componenti, arancia candita e lievito belga, sbilanciata sul dolce con un timido finale erbaceo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

33cl bottle - nose is banana and wheat. Much sweeter than the regular version. Much better as well and clearly more of a sipper.
