330ml bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Thanks to Blackhaddock for bringing this! Can’t say I was diggin this. Pours gold with thin frothy white head. Light citrus, light sweetness, thin spice, an almost lagery feel. Very disappointing for me, although I do have a bottle of this myself so may have to re-rate from a proper serving.

Pas mal faite, assez sucrée et fruitée, mais sans particularité aucune. Bof --- Not badly done, quite sweet and fruity, but not unremarkable.

Shared at the Midlands meeting on 23rd Aug 2014: 330ml bottle provided by me. Let’s face it, the best part of this is the bottle art rather than the beer. Slight haze to the golden orange body in my glass, a cream coloured head sat on top for a while. Weak aroma, some citrus notes maybe. Strange blend of flavours that gave a malty based feel with a semi-sweet citrus hop finish, the alcohol was evident throughout, I thought it different and OK more than great.

MarkoNm (1187) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a fairly decent white head. There is malty aroma as well as lots of fruity notes. The taste starts nicely, but it has a very sweet and spicy finish, making it in a way unpleasant.

Renobob (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2014
Bue en canette de 33cl. Blonde belge basique classique mais pas trop désagréable. Enfin bon ils jouent quand même bien sur le marketing quand même plutôt que sur la recette ;)

rikstar (1222) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
Met jeroen gedronken op vakantie in Frankrijk juli 2014, goudgeel troebel met wit schuim. Citrus met een een eigenaardige bijsmaak, riool achtig.

harrisoni (14842) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Carrefour and drunk at home. Clear gold thick white head. Sweet tripel aroma. Soft simple strong golden Belgian Ale. Some hop throughout some of that tripel fruit sweetness. Very simple, not complicated but it’s ok. Esters are fairly limited. it’s just a little uncultured.
