Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden with medium white head. Managed to leave the yeast in the bottle despite its opacity. Fruity aroma - oranges and lemons, some apple, distant banana. Also honey, yeast, alcohol, candy sugar. Medium body for the abv. Warming alcohol finish.

HIGHB4LL (733) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 3 fingers white head, straw yellow, cloudy, Aroma: light grassy hops, fruity malt, light fruity yeast, slight wheat perhaps. Palate: medium light body, oily texture, dry finish, average carbonation. Taste: sweet pruney malt, into tones of yeasty fruit, ending with slight grassy bitterness. Overall, good balance, maybe not the best, but still very solid.

RedSox2004 (1360) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Golden blond with a slight haze, gigantic rocky head, great retention and nice lace. Aromas of earthy hops, cereal, yeast, herbs. Slight bitterness is offset my slight sourness and yeast-like sweetness. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft champagne-like carbonation and a slightly metallic finish that keeps this from being an extraordinary beer.

krumbum (548) - truckee, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Extremely murky floaties. See through gold color with an active head. Yeasty Apple aromas. Champagne like yeast with a slight tangy apple finish. It zips over your tongue.

Fredd_an (99) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Ljus Ale, bra huve! Kanske är full men känner söt doft av malt & belgisk jäst, lite skosula? Smaken är alkohol söt. Man känner verkligen alkoholen men inte på ett dåligt vis. Den tillför en trevlig sötma utan att bli för mycket, men det har säkert mycket med den fina humlen att göra som kommer in som en som en Pale Ale eller APA. Amerikansk humle någon? Kroppen är halv. Eftersmaken är ej på topp. Har lagrat denna 2 år, så överraskande kul att humle fanns kvar. Dock hoppades jag på bättre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia 33 CL, colore oro leggermente velato con una schiuma abbondante grossolana e poco persistente, aroma caramellato e fruttato, in bocca l’alcool si fa sentire abbastanza insieme al fruttato e ai lieviti. Corpo medio e carbonazione media.
