Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a huge white head that lasts. Aromas of yeast, honey and slight hops. Sweet candy sugar flavor up front with mild hop bitterness. Very soft mouthfeel. This is good, but nothing really special in the realm of Belgian beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 fliptop bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! 8.3% ABV. It poured hazy golden body with medium to bigger head. Nice yeasty banana, marshmallow root and weak juniper in aroma. Flavor is slightly sweetish, floury a bit, with some fine but strange bitterness, 5 kinds are definitely not felt. Medium, bit creamy yeasty body with long and fine sweetish, very slightly bitter finish. Alcohol is felt slightly, but well hidden, what is common in good belgian ales. Good one, but a bit strange as I said.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A cute little swingtop bottle like on the pic that I got in the Vrutak store in Zagreb, shared with heavy. They have the commercial description and the ingredients list in Latin too. Cute. Anyway, poured a murky dull golden body with a big thick white head that dissipated slowly. Acidic and sweet honeyish nose. Eh. The taste is sweet honey mixing with a distinct but hardly complex or tasty sweaty bitterness. 5 hop sorts but all the wrong ones? Dunno. Some orange did pop up, but not sure if it had anything to do with the hops used. The alcohol is evident and possibly all too evident. Messy all in all and I expected more.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from bottle at Lush West Town. Pours light golden brown witha huge frothy and rocky white head. Nose of Belgian yeast with some candy, brown sugar, and a hint of banana. Flavor is somewhat bready and somewhat brown sugar sweet with light hops on the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a medium plus finish that is at first brown sugar and then light hops bitterness. There is nothing overly exciting about this beer, but it is super drinkable and easy to enjoy.

A nice blond with some hoppiness, but nothing extraordinaire. Funky yeasty aromas. Very yellow body with some white head. A tad below average mouthfeel for the style. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dull gold, creamy white head. Biscuity malt, spice, stone fruit and mild orange aroma. Quite prominent alcohol. Taste is only mildly sweet with some light grass and spice hops. Bitter and slightly astringent finish. Not terribly involving.

Faint cottony nose, much more mild than I expected from the label. sunny yellow gold, muddied after poured on the lees, rocky dollops of creamy white head. golden biscuit malt, little stubborn herbal bite, creamy body in the finish. seriously lacking in the flowery bitterness I was anticipating.

Hazy, wheat beer type pour from bottle at Flying Saucer in Houston, TX. Nose was bananas and some spice. Taste was warm and slightly fruity, hiding the alcohol well. Nice touch by hot girl serving the beer, as after she poured it in my glass, she rolled the bottle on her thigh to get the remaining hoppy suds at the bottom and poured this in to a shot glass. She said they called this a "hop bomb" and only did it with certain beers. Tasted great and was fun to drink. What more can a guy ask for?
