Poured the beer from the bottle into a pint glass to sample. The beer was a semi-cloudy straw-lemon color with noticeable sediment and a large foamy head with good retention, and solid cling and lacing. Its aroma featured notes of straw, lemon, and wheat, and also had touches of fruit, citrus, and grapefruit for a pleasant blend. The taste was a nice lightly sweet fruity flavor with notes of citrus, and a somewhat sour and grainy effect as well. The beer had a good, thick palate, and was mostly dry with good carbonation and a filling mouthfeel. It was a very solid beer with good character and notes, but just short of excellent.

brnandersen (1800) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Cloudy, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, spices, light caramel malts, apricot, a herbal-spicy bitterness. Taste is bitter. Full body with a creamy, bordering thicker texture and an average carbonation. Good for a Belgian Blonde. Long lasting dry and fruity finish with a good amount of spicy bitterness. Some citrus. Rather good.

Dervock (432) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy light Orange with lacy white head. Marmalade, spice and sweet malt aroma. Sweet hint up front with a hit if the citrus and spice , transitions to a dry almost cider hit, then a sharp dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy with a lively carbonation.

Lekker bier. Het witte schuim trekt te rap weg en de smaak van melkzuur is te aanwezig.

Gerbeer (1668) - 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 (13) - 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 (461) - 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.

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 (209) - 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 !!
