bottle. Interesting concept of serving the beer. One amazing tall well designed glass and on the side a shot glass of the same design where they pour the yeast of the bottle. Pours golden with thick white lastnig head. Aroma is hoppy with light bitterness, grainy some notes of honey base that reminded me of the Barbar and pale malts. Taste, yeasty after taste, some fruits with honey like character, wheat, 5 hops, finish is enjoyable mid range bittersweet.

Clear golden with a large white head. The aroma came on sweet with yeasty and fruity notes. Flavour was fairly sweet with yeasty and fruity notes. Not that many hops but it gave it a fairly dry finish. Picked up some almonds and marzipan aswell. To sweet really.

Bottle thanks to the bosses in the rake and in Quinns. Alroudn rating: Lemon sharpness off the hops, honey pale malt, orange fruity peel character, dry bitterness, candy sugar doesnt balance, too yeasty, far too carbonated.

JanEric (1027) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours out with a lot of carbonate. Aroma of hoppy bitterness. Head a bit creamy, soon disappearing until a slight white top remains. Tastes like a triple, long finish

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2009
bottle at Delirium in Brussels - Pours mostly clear golden at first. Then the bartender poured the last of it into a shot glass and gave me that too. Yeast shot!? Anyway, it has a one finger lasting head. The mostly hop aroma has notes of citrus and grass. It tastes of sweet, bready malt and moderately strong hops. For the abv, this beer is easily quaffed. The finish is bitter with a little lingering alcohol.

chiara bella schiuma abbondante e persitente il naso non molto intenso delicato cerale lieveun po fruttato in bocca prima leggere note dolci fruttate poi sechezza dei luppoli che per non risultano molto amari n aromatici si fa bere piuttosto facilmente

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
bottle, pours light yellow, tall white head. Light bready malt and floral hop aroma. Refreshing hay and grassy body that is almost peppery at times but turns bitter with light hop tones and a light alcohol burn in the finish. High carbonation, this beer really dances on the tongue. Greatly refreshing and packs a punch.

Swingtop bottle. Pours hazy orange gld with a frothy white head. Dusty floral aroma with a hint of toast. Near medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is lighter fruits and floral hop. With yeast. Ends decently bitter. Heat burns a bit in the finish. Damn fine drink.
