brokensail (11284) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
A slightly hazed pale yellow color with a white head. Smells a bit like lemon cleaning solution. Orange peel, some faint straw, and a hint of pale malt sweetness. The flavor is very citric and lightly tart. Some lemon sourness, a bit of orange peel, and a light bitterness. Slight apple, a hint of solvent, and a bit abrasive on the finish.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Fizzy carbonation keeps the head thick, Color is dark golden and aroma of sweet grass. Mouthfeel is just about right, and fizziness leaves a lasting impression on the palate. Mild taste of hay, difficult to detemine, as the fizzinessdistracts...but good nonetheless.

Sparkling and clear pale blonde strong ale with more than a hint of orange peel in the nose. Has a moderate, confident bitterness and matching sweetness, very lively, end off-dry. Bittersweet aftertaste. Impressive.

Drank with Viktor, tnx! Hazy lemon yellow color with a huge white head. Fruity alcoholic nose. Aroma is citrus fruits and spices. Flavour is bittering with crisp alcoholic tone, and rich fruits. Nice smooth finish despite the 8%.
