3fourths (8295) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
bottle-conditioned 750ml.
bbd August 2013, bottled February 2012.
hazed golden wheat body with a fine white head.
heavily perfumy (honeysuckle).
blueberry, white grape and lime ester and hop-heavy nose.
herbal juniper-like aromas with sometimes-hints of bell pepper.
musty, minerally, doughy yeast.
creamy natural carbonation.
exceptionally smooth and soft-textured malt.
strongly bitter with citrus-focused american hop flavor.
cheese rind and must.
more light-bodied than 5% would suggest, reminds me of the lightness of 3.5% Avril.
a strange and difficult beer to wrap my head around.
strange choice of brutish high-acid American hops for a low-gravity Belgian farmhouse ale.
makes me dance!

Hanoi (473) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Nose is yeast slight herbal notes, slight floral, medicine . Taste is medicinal, straw, yeast, herbal hops. Lack of depth in the short finish. I think my bottle is on the turn, it is not the drink other reviewers have described.

obe83 (75) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 7, 2015
Biondissima opalescente e con una schiuma bianca di buona persistenza ma di irregolarità nelle dimensioni delle bolle, Al naso è freschissima....erba appena tagliata, agrumi, anche un sentore di margherita, ma anche crosta di pane. In bocca note maltate in ingresso lasciano ampio spazio a sentori agrumati ed erbacei. Finale piacevolmente asprino e amaricante il giusto. Anche in bocca ti fa immaginare di sorseggiarla in spiaggia sotto un ombrellone tanto è dissetante, beverina e fresca, ma non una bottiglia (da 75 è la dimensione azzeccata, minimo sindacale procapite), una spina intera (luogo modalità di somministrazione e stagione ideale, ma che anche a gennaio fa la sua porca figura).

Rob_D_UK (1027) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Refreshing, fruity aroma. Slightly cloudy golden colour, almost no head. Nicely aroma hopped. Mild flavour with OK bitterness, citric, turning acidic. Yeasty aftertaste.

Bottle bbe 01/2016. Nice long lasting head. Aroma pilsner-like, some flowers. Taste is sweet and grainy upfront, then spicy bitterness takes over.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled straw with obvious sediments and a thick, very resilient white head. Aroma is pear, peach and vanilla. Flavor is peach, pear, dusty, malty, peppery, minty. Finish is somewhat herbal, a tad bit of bitterness with notes of grapefruit here and there. Very refreshing and drinkable. Medium body, average to strong carbonation. Great Summer ale.

LaViolette (111) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice seasonal beer with a beautiful nose. The first time I had it I was completely overwhelmed but I was quite disappointed on the followings tastings...The finish is a bit too bitter and I think it is because 5.2% is too soft for so much hoppyness... It’s though a good refreshing summer beer and who could resist to this wonderful and beautiful man on the label?

Sissio (749) - Orsenigo, ITALY - NOV 26, 2014
Light hazy, deep golden, rich cream head. Aromatic hops, very fresh, honey. Tastes like licking a spoon of honey and balancing with hoppy bitterness. Extremely pleasant.

Faktiskt ganska slätstruket får jag tyvärr konstatera. Absolut drickbart, men inget som fastnar i minnet.

BrunoSanchez (155) - Fermo, ITALY - NOV 5, 2014
Belgian stagionale dorata con schiuma abbondante bianca. Al naso erbacea, speziata e un po agrumata. In bocca molto beverina e piacevole con una bilanciatura leggermente acida. Il sapore floreale e speziato risulta molto rotodo e per niente invadente rendendo questa birra rinfrescante e per tutti gusti. Finale pulito. Molto consigliata!!!
