Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. It pours clear deep gold with near white head. The aroma offers up sugar sweet mango sweetness that is lightened by some spicy like hops. The taste is smooth and has a mix of smooth sweet malts, grainy malts, citrus hops and some mango like notes. Around the edges I get notes of spicy hops helping this get into the finish. Pretty nice crisp session beer with nice fairly rich flavor yet extremely drinkable.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2012
(Bottle, 0.375 l, at Tuulensuu, 20120811) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, grass, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, malts, Belgian style yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, fruity and bitter. A very tasty hoppy and clearly Belgian style beer.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2012
(Bottled, 0.75l) Murky orange with a small, but firm head. Aroma of citrus, lemonadey raspberry, some sour raspberry stones. The same with flavor: wheaty, sourish malt and (rasp)berriness - not much else. Medium to full body, soft but foamy CO2. A decent beer, but the raspbery dominates too much.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle 75cl. Shared with Wim and Yves. Lovely naming!!! Darker blond coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Rather special hoppy floral hinted aroma with some sweeter bitter fruity notes. Medium to full palate. FInish is rather light bitter hoppy noted. Not bad.
