Abio (1816) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2010
Bottle at home. Sour-citrus smell. Some bread. A "standard"’ triple smell. Golden, light orange colour (not my favorite colour, seems more like beer that comes out instead of in the body...), good big head, that holds ok. Pretty good balanced between sour and sweet. Bread and citrus in the taste. Smooth one, maybe just a bit to smooth.

dnstone (2398) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 6, 2010
A sweet, musty crystal malt aroma. Pour gold-tineted clear with no head. A typical strong golden ale with an alcohol kick. Some hints of fruit from the yeast. Nothing special.
