From the tap poured light copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty/hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

ska (205) - ITALY - MAY 13, 2009
33cl bottle, hazy golden colour, minimal lasting white head, caramel and grass aroma, peach, roasted and cardboard notes, light bitter flavor, light body, dry finish with still cardboard notes, some bitterness aftertaste, a big delusion (bad bottle?) because I like very much maredsous 8

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Hazy copper pour with a fluffy off white head and spotty lace. Toasted malts, fruits, and hay on the nose. Slightly sweet up front with a dry yeasty finish

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 10, 2009
750 ml bottle. A cloudy dark golden beer with a huge, creamy and persistent white head. The aroma has a medium maltiness and hoppiness, with notes of dried fruits, some bread, grass and citric fruits. The flavour has a medium sweetness, a light acidity and bitterness. Well balanced. Medium body, lively carbonation, not a very long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A good beer, maybe a bit light in body and not too complex, but quenching and refreshing.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2009
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Pour is darker than you’d expect for a blond, with a pale amber quality to it and some lively carbonation (the kind with surprisingly large bubbles and a prickly head). Nose is sweet and yeasty, with soft fruits and bready notes. Mouthfeel is a tad on the thin side, but the flavor is fresh and ripe with some pleasing dry notes on the finish.

larryLSB (440) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
On tap at the Red in Santa Cruz. Golden with reddish hue and a nice large off-white head. Nose of subtle fruitts, mostly bananas and yeast. Sweet to the taste, but not too sweet, with a nice dry finish. Very good.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - APR 30, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Dullish orange pour with a minor head. Very nice doughy, yeasty aroma, but hints of steamed broccoli are weird. Perfectly dry, fermenting bread flavor, with a mixed greens/salad kind of crispy, fresh finish. Excellent! This is the kind of beer that reminds me why I love beer.

nickd717 (3573) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 27, 2009
On tap at Red Restaurant in Santa Cruz. Golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of bready malt, yeast, and spices. Flavor is sweet malt, spices, honey, yeast, and some floral hops on the finish. Palate is somewhat lively but more or less fits style expectations.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 19, 2009
750 ml in Duvel glass. Clear gold with lasting flat head and lace. Mild spicy bready sweet aroma. Spicy sweet honey apricot with mild spicy dry finish. Slightly watery body. Decent and refreshing. Suspiciously similar to Duvel Green on draft.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2009
Tap at Belgian Cafe. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy off white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, bready malt and Belgian yeast. Flavor of the same, well done.
