MrW (402) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle 33 cl @ Camenbière, Aartselaar. Honey, herbs, bread, hops in the aroma. Perfect appearance imo. Goldblond, offwhite dense head, a lot of sparkling, lacing. Poured in the tasting glasses of the house. Taste is in balance. Sweets of the honey, herbs, soft, nuts, apple. Light bitter finish. Perfect match with a lot of different cheeses.

hobsch (419) - Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle 0.33 . golden clear with a rather firm head. Feel is very smooth and for 8% the alcohol is definitely not present. The carbonation is perfect. The taste is a good mixture of sweets and slightly sour with some bitter notes. Overall a very good beer which I will buy again if I have the chance.

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 19-12-2015. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux. Arôme donne de belles notes d’agrumes avec ce bouquet unique mielleux sur qcq effluves de fruits fermentés. Palais restitue ici aussi le mielleux sans pour cela dominer toute la bière. Houblonné reste plus en retrait et contribue à un ajout subtile d’amertume herbacée et fruitée; agrumes. Les malts sont là mais restent en retrait.

Deep golden beer with a stable white head. Nose is full, intensive ripe tropical fruits, peaches and apricots. Full body, light oily texture, pleasant pretty carbon and rounded overall impression. taste is rather semi sweet and semi bitter. Palateis overhelmed by different tropical fruits but also subtropical, honey and intensive bitter herbs hints. Semibitter finish. B@H

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2012
#1258 Fruchtig-hefiges Aroma (Zitrone, Pfirsich) und leicht würzig nach Koriander. Trotz der 8% geradezu erfrischender Antrunk. Hefiger Geschmack nach Weizen trifft auf einen schlanken Malzkörper; wird gegen Ende angenehm herb. Nice!
