Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2006
LCBO Spring release. BB May 2006. Hazy golden ale with no head. Rather chalky cardboard box aroma of oxidation, butfreshly sliced pears also noted. In mouth, a sweet honey malt, with light coriander, clovers herbal qualities, and warming alcohol. Medium bodied. The aroma took a beating but in mouth, still enjoyable.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
Clear golden with medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma with metallic notes. Flavor is sweet with fruity and yeasty notes.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
33 cl. bottle. The head is nice on this warm golden beer. The aroma is malty and the flavour develops in steps: malt, fermented apple, citrus and honey - and then it’s like the notes go backwards after a light bitterness, ending where it started with the malt.

Sammy (8937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Abundant lasting yeasty foam on top of yellow golden. Some floral and yeast and alcohol smell. Taste is so-so

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Hazy amber colour, thick white, persistent head. Very perfumey aroma, oak, lactic sourness and a bit of barnyard funkiness. Slight citric aroma as well. Flavour is fairly sweet, perfumy, cherry, black pepper, and bit of sherry-oxidized wine character in here. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Light spice and a touch of juniper in here as well. Complex and very tasty.

leaparsons (8311) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
Cloudy orange/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet caramel malts and spices. Flavours have the same characteristics as the aroma with more spices and alcohol burn. Decent.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2004
Dusty cereal and hay reluctant to wed the comely, silky sweetness...Wild rice allusions spark the flavorful malt husks...Fizzier than the full Bavaisienne and less coherent in its intricacies, but nonetheless an honest rural raconteur...

2.7
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Quack-Duck (8072) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2012
0.25l bottle from saveur-biere.com. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Dusty hops in the nose. Sweet, dusty hops with hints of wet cardboard. Not brilliant.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2005
330 ml Bottle. LCBO Spring Release 2005. Golden yellow, small wispy white head. Fairly fruity and spicey aroma, and flavour is likewise. Alcohol was not noticeable. Meh. Boring and not really to my taste on this evening.
