Georgeous nose. Pineapple, tangerines and apricot. and (surprising) heaps of mint! Golden to orange color with medium to full body. Nice tangy bitterness but somewhat short palate. Final impression: orange cremesicle. A bit to rich by the end of the glass for me but nice to enjoy, especially as it warms (initially served ice cold from draught) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (1694) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 21, 2013
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, golden color with a fine off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of white wine, tangerine, spice, caramel and yeast. Crisp taste of spice, yeast, white wine, caramel and tropical fruit. Medium/light body and high carbonization with a clean mouthfeel that matched the crisp taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375. Pours a hazy golden orange with bubbly eggshell head that leaves some soapy lace touches. Nose involves rustic dough, apple, light pepper spice, white wine. Quite sweet flavorwise, with a fair tartness and a touch of bitterness. Light to medium body, fluffy and active with carb, crisp with a cleansing tart finish. Pretty decent, but too sweet and apple-y for me to completely enjoy it.

maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Light and sweet in the nose, with a touch of funk. Hazy honey color. Mildly fruity and funky, with some light bittering / ends mostly bitter Thin-medium body. Okay. A bit weak on all fronts. Doesn’t match up to most good saisons.

bottle. Lemony, dusty nose, dry fruits. Orange-gold color. Sweet, biscuity flavor, nicely hopped but too sweet. Good bitter at the finish but too sweet over all.
