Douberd (2098) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2013
Stubby bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6%. Colour is golden yellow on the body, a bit pale, but also kind of cloudy. Not hazy, but cloudy. Two gingers of a white, soapy head, with very good retention, leaving nice lacing rings around the glass. Aroma of yeast, barn, manure, does this have brett? Taste of malts, sugar, yeast, citrus, hops. Nicely bitter, especially notable on the aftertaste. Mdium thin body, good amount of carbonation. Overall not bad at all.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some sweet orange and wheat notes. The flavor is grain and oranges, but if fairly bland. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

19/III/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 5/X/13 (2013-256)

Clear blond to light orange beer, big irregular white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet and sugary, very fruity, peaches, sweet malts, hint of citrus. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, quite some citrus, bitter hops, grassy, still very fruity overall. Aftertaste: bitter, grassy hops, some citrus, fruity again, honey like sweetness, bit medicinal bitterness in the end, pretty decent. Very surprised with the low ratings here...

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2013
09.01.13. White foam, lace, settles fast. Totally clear, light golden color. Aroma is a bit of honey and something strange (yeast?). Nasty bitter taste. Maybe some banana in there, dunno. In the end, not that good. Quite bad in fact.

MrW (402) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2012
33cl bottle. Honey and grassy aroma. Yellowish blond beer with a white quickly disappearing head. Lacing though. Something sourish in the taste. Also vanilla, honey and a dry hoppy finish. Not and explosion of taste, but a fine beer.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Bottle, a gift. 33cl into Duvel glass. Yellow to golden slightly hazy body. Nice white head. Spicy nose, definitely coriander. I think it has some wheat as well. Taste is moderately to pronounced bitter, palate is clean & crisp, refreshing. Well balanced, maybe a bit overspiced. Rerate: very empty and dull.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2012
#689 Ein belgisches, leicht trübes Blondes mit 6% Alk., das in jeder Beziehung an ein Witbier erinnert, allerdings eher gehaltvoll als erfrischend. Für mich auch keine echte Alternative, denn es ist trotz höherem Alk-Gehalt eher wässrig denn vollmundig. Einzig das Maya-Etikett macht es -etwas- außergewöhnlich. Insgesamt trinkbar, ohne zu begeistern. Test vom 22.2.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,9,10,9 - 9,05

gunnar (5160) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle from a cornershop in Antwerpen. Pours hazed straw coloured with a small snow white head. Aroma of yeast and tropical fruits. Taste is citrus with a lively carbonation, dries up at the end.

Gedronken in Buitenlust, heeft een pilsachtige kleur, geel en helder met een witte schuimkraag. Ruikt kruidig en zoet. Smaakt een beetje fruitig, hoppig,
