electrotype (487) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 4, 2014
Arôme rempli de houblons fruités. Une touche de levure se laisse aussi sentir. La bière est belle, la mousse tient le coup, c’est pétillant sans exploser de partout. En bouche, c’est fruité là aussi. La bière est amère, sans tomber dans l’excès, elle se boit très bien. Bon travail!

Idiosynkrasie (5559) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
600ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, mostly lasting, fairly lacing, white head. Hard to describe floral hoppy aroma, notes of unidentifiable petals, imaginable as of pink and lavender colour, a cautious Kristallweizen-like wheaty touch. Taste is slightly sweet, floral hoppy and subdued tropical fruity, leafy bitterness, subtle richness. Exotic.

daje (2831) - NORWAY - FEB 8, 2016
On tap at Cafe Sara, january 1st 2016. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma with subtle orange and grapefruit, mostly wheat and malt. Taste is sweet, light spicy, flowery hops, light bitterness. Sweet caramel finish. This one falls between two chairs, nice elements from both a wit and an IPA, but mixing it up doesn’t really do it any favours. Maybe it’s time to stop the whole "white ipa hype".

Jow (3038) - New York, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle at home that should have been saved for later but boredom lead to more drink. Pale pour. Nose is tropical fruit and yeast. Tastes of melon, mango, honey, floral, and bubblegum., verynlight and yeasty palate. Overall ok and light tropical experience.

nimbleprop (6654) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2016
75cl bottle pours a hazy gold with some filmy, lacing white head. Nose has straw, grass, lemon peel, mild spice, some stale biscuit. Flavor is a little weaker, light everything - lemon/grist/straw, some soap here. Watery finish.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2016
Cask at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. As Les Quatres Surfeurs de l’Apocalypso. It’s an unclear one, orange colored and almost headless. Some off-white bubbles. Oranges, pine cone notes and a touch of malts in the aroma. It’s medium bodied and very soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. There’s a decent bitterness in the mouth, with pine cones and resin and a touch of oranges. Some pale malts in the back. A refreshing and tasteful one. 150611

Bottle from Steve. Pours a light gold with a huge white frothy head. Big tropical hop nose. Smooth malt body, fruity, hop taste. Tasty brew.

Tmoney99 (12741) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tap sample. Poured clear yellow color with a medium frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tropical citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

wlajwl (5058) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Aroma is wheat, tropical fruit and mild funk. The flavor is wheat, tropical fruit, light citrus, malts and a mix of tart and relatively slight bitterness in the finish.

gripweed57 (1199) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2015
840 ml bottle. Honey gold color with a small white head. Tart citrus hop nose with a yeasty push. Flavor has tropical fruit notes. Hints of mango, lemon and tangerine. Nice citrus and spicy hop finish. Crisp and tart with complex fruity citrus bitterness and Belgian pedigree. Nuff said.

thb (786) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2015
Hazy gold with some sediment. Pillowy head that sticks around. Aroma is fruity, with pear and lychee (as the bottle says!). Something like candied lemon too. Taste opens with a dry, bitter grainy belgiany opening. Maybe a little astringent. Finish quite clean. I am truly baffled by the hawaiian branding on this, but it’s a pleasant thing to drink
