MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Draught at ZBF09. Coriander aroma. Cloudy dark yellow colour. Very small stable white head. The flavour has a good lemon flavour with clean lemon peel bitterness. Also a little light malt to balance. Well-balanced. 6 3 6 3 16

Bottle, 7%. BB 2010, 2.5 years ago. Sweetish caramelly aroma. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is yeasty with a quite rough bitter finish. Did not benefit from the years in my cellar.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a small head. Lemony-fruity aroma with grassy hops, and hints of alcohol. Flavor is a bit acidic, with lemon and some gluey alcohol. Not much smoother with yeast. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not very impressive with gluey alcohol and thinnish body. Even the hopping is somewhat mushy.

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle from De Bierloods I think. Fine orange mist slicked with white. Head diminishes in swigs. Bright barnyardy aroma with Westy Blond, animal effluent, spontaneity, toasted wheat and stinging dry floral hop pellet. Shit and flowers. Flavour follows on logically with a good citric hoppy punch, wheat, lemon zest, yeasty freshness, drying hops and biscuit. Nicely hopped, rustic ale.
