Damico (3053) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
The aroma brings beautiful sweet wheat and grassy notes. The Belgian ale pours unclear golden with a light orange amberish hue and big creamy white head. The flavor brings the bitterness of the noble hops to the forefront with the Belgian yeast there but not dominating as usual.

jstraw (1951) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Hazy, yellow-gold with big, flotsam, white head / Bright, floral, delicate nose of lemon, grain, and spice / Light to medium body, acidic and lightly sour, lively carbonation, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and bitter finish / Flavors of lemon, geranium, straw, pineapple, and coriander / Lovely, stylish, dry summer ale. Possibly a little light on the fruit, but I quibble.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A lightly unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacings. Lightly chalky on the nose, but mostly citrusy and resiny. Generic fruityness. A touch of yeast and pale malts. Quite bitter on the palate, piney and resiny, with some grapefruit peel. Full bodied and dry on the palate, a bit heavy on the carbonation maybe, but still pleasant. Lasting finish. A rather pleasant one, easy drinkable, except for the level of carbonation. 120818
