shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Hazy yellow with a fruity and musty nose. Flavor is a touch sweet, but not to bad. Fruity (sweet citrus, melon, fleshy fruit), musty, a touch of pepper, spice; I donít care for the finish. Medium light to medium body, decent level of carbonation. Just fair overall.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís and shared with LeninCat. Gl ass to mouth. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Potpourri, bubble gum, white pepper, tropical fruits, and lemon zest in the nose. Quite a bit going on in the aroma. Medium body. Somewhat sweet. Banana, pear, bubblegum, and mango flavors. A bit gooey. Lightly spicy. Some banana in the aftertaste. Body is a little gooey and the esters are a bit heavy. Ok. LeninCat ticked this @ 3/5.

jmohno (1102) - Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Peppery spice and fruit nose. Somewhat tart to start with some aroma flavors. Dry lightly bready toasty. Not big on the style, boring to me, mostly pepper and citrus in character. Fairly tart and crisp. Orange and lemon citrus probably.

r464 (1938) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Hints of fruit and spice, but quite a bit of eathiness as well that leads to a very dry and trashy finish.

Golden and mostly clear. Floral and citrus aroma. Strong yeasty clove flavor up front and a piney citrus finish. Light bodied and fairly fizzy.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Lightly hazy gold - fairly effervescent - nose moderately tart grape skin, musky peach skin, light phenolics (pepper), some tropical esters - flavor is litly sweet up front, but a tartness and acidity arrive quickly to balance - white grape and peach - moderate phenols late - gets a bit spicy, actually, and the bitterness and peppery character get a touch abrasive - lingering tropical sweetness in the finish - a little rough, but much more enjoyable than I anticipated.

ARH (457) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially caramel and cinnamon - kind of an apple pie like quality (pie crust included) - with a touch of yeast. This turns a bit tropical near the end with notes of banana and pineapple as well as cloves and pepper. It pours a lightly hazy, oily orange-yellow color with a thin, white, fuzzy ring. Thereís a light surface dousing as well as a touch of lace on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium / medium-light bitter blending. Itís a slick textured, medium-full body with a light, fizzy - almost flat - carbonation. Itís crisp, clean, and dry. The flavors are mostly tropical fruits with caramel and toast. The finish is spicy and waxy with a light wax aftertaste, but clean and light.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
[5475-20130602] Sample. Potato plastic apple aroma. Clear, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Pineapple-infused toasted herb flavour. Medium body. Interesting, on the OMG side though. (5/3/6/3/13) 3.0
(Mondial 2013, Montreal, QC)
