Actatu (2) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015 does not count
330ml bottle from The LCBO. Light gold in colour with a white frothy head. The aroma gives off notes of: apricot, orange, hay, and light spices. The taste is medium sweet with complementing bitter notes, ensuring the beer remains well balanced. I detect: alcohol, orange, apricot, and spices. As for the palate, it is medium bodied and slightly oily; it ends with a long lasting sweetness & bitterness on the tongue. Overall, a pleasant tasting beer that I can see myself continuing to enjoy this summer (especially for the price).

Koskela (388) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Crisp slightly malty and yeasty aromas come from this hazy yellowish brew. Sweet maltieness with a bit of yeast and a slight coriander meld with this medium bodied brew. It's a golden ale for sure with a Belgian twist.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada con abundante espuma blanca. Aroma frutal, a miel y especias... Recuerda a tripel. Muy buena en boca, galleta, naranja y especias que compensan el dulce. Muy buen cuerpo y refrescante. Muy buena.
