Quite interesting exp. Intense yeast presence, pleasantly fruity, mostly orange, banana, spices, bit notes of alcohol spiking, light malty background. Quite dry finish. Sweetish with light bitterness. Drinkable, but nothing special to buy it more

beleggor (59) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours with big white head. Colour is rather orange than yellow. It smells like a candy. There is a lot of sweetness, some vanilla notes, some banana, bubble gum, caramel. It’s ok, but a litle bit too sweet. Same in taste - it looks like someone puts a lot of sugar there. There is no bitterness, and for me it was hard to finish, becouse there was nothing that can balance this sweetness.

PawelD (140) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. W zapachu drożdze-banan, alkohol przywodzący na myśl zmywacz do paznokci. Kolor słomkowy, mętny, piany brak. W smaku mocno słodowe, wytrawne, gęste smakuje drożdzami. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, alkohol nie do końca dobrze zbalansowany a goryczki brak.

Garry_Evans (22) - HONG KONG - JUN 26, 2014
Cloudy yellow. Nice sweet lemony aroma. On palate quite sharp, lacking softness. Highly carbonated. Not much complexity but medium log finish with wheaty tones and whiff of alcohol (8%). Nothing special. Like standard Hoegaarden but stronger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
