77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2014
Tasting glass draft @ AC/CB. Hazy amber with creamy white head. Light USA, citra hops in the nose, yeast, light hay. Taste is thick yeast, bread, light odd hay, touch cheesy fresh citra hops, yeast is thick. Body is touch to much candy sugar & yeast. Okay but needs to have way more less yeast & more overt taste for me. They told me that they were aiming for a more Belgian taste with this selection which I understand. Best one of the 3 beers which I tried from them then.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Everything the name suggests. It’s fresh, it’s a bit hoppy, but not overwhelmingly. And it has a dry finish. It’s an Ale for the summer (who would have guessed?)

sbron (235) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Gedronken op het terras bij Maximus Brouwerij met een heerlijk zonnetje. Het biertje is fris, maximus hoppig, licht bitter en waterige afdronk. Perfecte combinatie.

A summer ale indeed, freshly bitter with some american hops, little grassy, mildly sweetish. It does quench your thirst as well.
