MrW (408) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2012
33cl bottle @ 4 seasons, Oudenburg. Aroma of citrus, green apple. Straw-colored, clear but turns very hazy when pouring the yeast. Nice fizz and lot’s of lacing. Taste is citrus with a bitter finish, really thirst-quenching. Much carbo but still soft.

suprchunk (2173) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 Yellow colored pour. Big white head that drops to a layer of white bubbles. Tons of lacing - makes it seem as if the head is still present it’s so thick. A citrusy, fruity aroma intermingled with hops and malt. Nice fruity flavor in the mouth with a hint of yeast. The finish is somewhat metallic. Decent.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2012
(Bottled) Quite hazy yellow with a medium, firm head. Fresh citrus-wheaty nose with some sweet, pale malt. Flavor is similar with fresh citrus and pale - not too sweet - malt. Slight acidity in the finish. Medium body, fresh and easy to drink. A basic, quality blond-wit hybrid, that goes down well at least in the summer.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2012
Some odd notes, most of them I like. Yellow coloured and hazy. White head, medium duration. Complex aroma, barnyard, sulfur, acid, hops, all nice. Yeasty too. More of that notes in the flavor, starts light sweet, herbal notes, finish moderate to heavy sweet. Creamy, dry texture and soft carbonation.
