Lele (195) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 20, 2015
ASPETTO: ambrato abbastanza torbido, con schiuma bianca, abbastanza grossolana, non abbondante e non persistente. AROMA: speziato e fruttato. GUSTO: si avverte della frutta gialla, del caramellato e del mielose, insieme ad una punta di acidulo. Carbonizzazione e corpo medi. CONCLUSIONE: una discreta berretta, abbastanza interessante, ma che non si fa ricordare. Soprattutto i primi sorso sono più saporiti, ma con proseguo della bevuta, i sapori li senti di meno.

MMJL (168) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Z butelki wyczuwalne są przede wszystkim drożdże, słód i goździki. Piana na początku dosyć wysoka, średnio zwarta, biała, później niska, drobna, nawet się lepi do szkła. Piwo jest w kolorze złote, wyraźnie mętne. Ze szkła pierwszy niuch daje skojarzenia mocno weizenowe – pojawiają się banany i goździki. Z czasem dominującą rolę zaczyna przejmować tak charakterystyczny aromat gumy do żucia, chociaż ten banan – teraz już bardziej w postaci bananowych chipsów nadal utrzymuje się wyraźny. Trzeba przyznać, że w tym przypadku drożdże dały prawdziwy popis, pokazując jaką różnorodność aromatów potrafią wykrzesać z piwa. W smaku wysokie wysycenie, a w odczuciu w ustach jak i smaku nadal trudno oprzeć się weizenowym skojarzeniom. Piwo jest słodkie, ale kwaśność dwutlenku węgla z wysycenia całkiem nieźle to kontruje. W smaku nie brakuje również gumy do żucia, oraz biszkoptowych ciasteczek, chociaż tutaj dosyć delikatnych. Na końcu przychodzi delikatna kwaśność, ale już inna niż ta od wysycenia. Całość podkreśla delikatna alkoholowa goryczka – w pełni tutaj dopuszczalna.

Fruitly citrus aroma. Cloudy appearence, small-grained and short-lasting foam. Only light bitter and with full fruity taste which lasts long. Average carbonation. Gentle finish. Overall - fruitfull and not so bitter beer.

Salmaneser (19) - BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
33 cl. bottle at home. The blond edition, sweet and fruity aroma. There is little taste in the first sip, but then comes a soft, mildly bitter aftertaste.

Flaska från SB. Gyllengul vätska med tjockt vitt skum. Örtig doft med inslag av skumbanan. Gräsig och örtig i smaken. Mot slutet dyker även mer bananer upp. Stram och torr munkänsla.
