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 è molto intenso delicato cerale lieveun po fruttato in bocca prima leggere note dolci fruttate poi sechezza dei luppoli che però non risultano molto amari nè 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.

oh6gdx (20869) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2009
Bottled (from thebelgianbeershop.com). A bit hazy yellowish golden colour with huge fluffy head. Aroma lace. Aroma is fruits, some earthy notes as well as herbal and yesty. Flavour is quite much the same with some grassyness and mild alcoholic sweetness added. Ends rather earthy and yeasty.

Bottle. Pours blond with a frothy white head. Pours a decent amount of yeast. Herbal, citrus hops nose. Clean hop aroma with some yeast, and straw grainy notes. Sweet evolving to dry. Not really crispy. Not overly hoppy either. For its ABV also a bit light bodied.

Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet matly with light notes of butter, straw, and floral hops. The flavor is sweet malty with spicy notes of coriander, leading to a dry spicy and slightly lactic acidic finish.

mike_77 (3328) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2009
Golden blond colour. Quite a floral aroma. Taste is fresh and clean. Flavour and hoppy and bittersweet with warming alcohol. Slightly soapy texture is disappointing.
