Gerbeer (1675) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap. Pours amber with moderate head. Aromas of yeast, dried fruit, and sweet malts. Flavors of marmalade, light resin, and dried bananas. Sharp crisp finish. Nice.

RCx240 (19) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Aroma is yeasty, spicy, and doughy. Medium body. Taste is sweet, malty and fades into a spiciness that masks the extra alcohol this beer contains. Fades quickly from palate.

varanid99 (477) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2014
Slightly hazy gold pour with a decent white head. Yeasty, doughy, spicy and citrus aroma. Taste is dry at first, then sweetness comes through with the malt, some lemony flavour and a little spice. Not bad.

Vighals (1004) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Gulbrun tåkete med tynt hvitt skum. Frukt, gjær og maltlukt. Søt fruktig start, bitter drurstein i avslutning. Kjenner også noe alkohol og krydde i smak. Medium kullsyre.

VDuquerroux (224) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden yellow beer with brown hues. Large white creamy head. Many thin bubbles. Nice lacing. Medium persistence. Fruity aroma (lemon), spices, herbs, bread. Medium refreshing bitter with a good sugary sweet background. Comfortable. Medium body, silky texture, average carbonation, bittersweet finish. Overall, a good surprise : refreshing, fruity, hoppy and yeasty. I really enjoyed this one !!

SilverfoX (212) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
fruit: apricot? beautiful golden colour it almost glows, no head tastes like a wheat beer sweet and sharp on the tongue, no particular flavour, nothing special.

alexsdad06 (5333) - Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have yeast, sweet malts, bready malts, caramel, fruity, with mild spice character. Decent enough.
