Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - APR 6, 2012
6 apr 2012, bottle. Light yellow and faintly hazy. Nose is fermenting bread and kind of burns the nose. Me body and a slightly fizzy. Candied sugar and Belgian yeast. Nice. I expected a bit more alcohol on the nose and palette but this is nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swing top bottle. Yellow with a slight haze and white head. Fruit, apricot, pineapple, candy sugar, light spice, yeast, and light citrusy hops. A nice triple even though I don’t usually like the style much.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Growler @ Utah Holiday Beer Tasting: Hazy blonde, nice husky straw and fresh hop notes. The flavor is citrusy, nice pale malts and a nice hop and clean fresh aroma. Not as crisp and bitey as a belgian but it’s nice.

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2009
1L bottle at a friends house, brought from the USA. ABV is 8.59%. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet (stone)fruits, sugar and spices like coriander. Flavour is sweet at first, very fruity with stonefruits, malty, spicy (just a bit too much coriander), with a good bitter finish that resembles that of a saison, nice and dry, even a bit chalky. Medium to fullbodied. Nice beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Big thanks to douglas88 for sending this liter swing top my way. It pours deep gold with a bit of haze and white head. The aroma has light colored fruit, a touch of grainy malts, floral hops and then rounded out by a thin layer of dark fruity esters accompanied by a bit of heat. The taste begins as apricots, peaches, plums and some apple mixing with sweet sugary malts. By midway some alcohol heat builds to thin out the mouthfeel a bit. It evens out into the finish with nearly silky smooth notes of malty grains, apricot and apple.

douglas88 (6015) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2009
One liter bottle thanks to Del. ABV is 8.59%. Pours a clear golden color with a medium bubbly white head. The aroma is spicy, lots of fruit- especially peaches- some yeast as well. The flavor is great; smooth and easy, fruity, loads of peaches and sweet malts, almost like a overly ripe apple cider, dry and a decent carbonation. Loads of spices. Very nice, and a excellent version of the style. Make some more Jeff!

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Poured a hazy honey/amber color with moderate puffy white head. The nose is very fruity with notes of lemon, apples, and bananas. The taste starts with more fruitiness. Peaches with some cotton candy sensations thrown in. The end is full of nice sweet malt and a bit of spiciness. Mouthfeel is full and rich with moderate to low carbonation. Great drinkability. The 10% ABV is well hidden.
