Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Hazy pale nutbrown colour, huge creamy white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, some yeast, mild sweet malts as well as quite grassy notes. Flavour is quite earthy yeast as well as some citrusfruits, mild alcoholic sweetness and some quite spiced notes. Smooth to drink. Long alcoholic and grassy finish and aftertaste. Pleasant.

Parket (582) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2009
bottle, nice yellow/orange colour and stable white head. Spicy and hoppy smell. Taste: also very nice hops like you could expect from the smell. A good and refreshing beer but nothing Iíve never drunk before.

Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful presentation of a dark yellow, hazy bear with a beautiful white medium head. The way the beer looks makes it clear it will be a hoppy, light bitter beer. The aroma is grassy, spicy and light grainy. The smell is grainy with... indeed: a hoppy and nicely light bitter aftertaste. In the background the taste is also light spicy. Not a bad beer at all, but I have the feeling I drunk this sort of beer already before. It makes me feel like a copy of the Taras Boulba.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Draught at ZBF.
Cloudy yellow gold with a decent bright white head and lace. Nice and fruity grassy hoppage with some good spicy notes and a decent bitter hop finish. Lovely dry feel. Quite similar to the Primular if I remember correctly.

It is warm golden with a light sediment and a lasting, huge, white and creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, flower and malt. The flavour has sweetness and notes of yeast, flower, fruit, malt, citrus and the finish is slightly dry.

JoeinDahlem (1454) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 5, 2009
Drunk at ZBF. Hazy yellow beer with lacy white head. Soft, sweet, yeasty nose with banana esters. Fairly sweet flavor with a mild, clean bitterness, coming out more bitter in the aftertaste but still pretty clean. Another sweet, yeasty Belgian blonde with half-hearted hopping. Less than exciting.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2009
330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009)
Very hazy orange. Pineapple aroma, grapefruit too. Pleasant carbonation. Quite sour on the palate. Soapy taste - in part from the hops, but also a bit from the earthy yeastiness. Thatís too dominant in the palate - it completely coats the mouth, and is too aggressive.
