MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Thanks to Glouglouburp for the bottle!
Think Luciernaga’s complexity and RR Damnation’s touch. Opaque gold, nice fizzy white head and lacing. Nose is ultra-clean, sweet with light malt and grain yet tart in apple and minor banana. Real minor yeast. Flavor is subtle but absolutely balanced and delicious: sweet honey and bready malt right alongside refreshing hop bitterness, lemon, yeast, and slight dust. Carbonated yet wonderfully smooth and supremely drinkable. Master class here.

bouteille de 750ml., blonde trouble avec une mousse qui disparait très vite, nez aigre, bouche qui goûte le grain, finale aigre, pas ma meilleure

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Verre de 20 oz, d’un fût au Pub Brouhaha. Arômes de céréales et de houblon européen. Robe dorée, légèrement voilée, légère mousse. Très veloutée en bouche, des céréales croustillantes et une touche de miel mènent à une finale moyennement amère de houblon floral. Très désaltérant.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle, sampled @ Volo(Ralph is the agent for this brewery, kudos on this!) Spicy hops nose with some decent malt, hazy yellow, pours a big, though short lived white head, Taste is lemon, malt, a hint of yeast. Crisp, clean, light bodied, easily drinkable, refreshing too. Great example!

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Sampled at 08 vt beerfest. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast and fruitness. Flavor is lemon citrus, floral and earthy hops light fruit and a touch of spices. Light to medium body with a bitter finish

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1271-20080410] bottle. Burnt hay grains aroma has a bit of alcoholic yeast and later quite a boozy sweat characteristic. Hazy, light yellow orange body with a quick white creamy head. Super yeasty hops with sweet hay finish that’s slightly funky. Medium body. Interesting but strange funky sweat notes.
