kaserov (24) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2016
Floja floja. Color amarillo ultra claro. Casi sidroso. Espuma que dura ms bien poco. Sabor insulso. No apetece dar ms de dos o tres tragos. Su nico punto a favor es que apenas se notan los 8 grados.

Olelko (24) - FRANCE - MAY 24, 2016
Strong beer with a heavy body, that takes a lot of your mouth. Charles Quint fears nothing and is shameless. Strong taste of caramel and cereal, but nothing surprising. The light "straw like" colour is OK but doesnt give the beer any character. The worst aspect of all: its a soapish taste and foam, a bit disgusting.

Boxereddy (453) - BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
Helder strogeel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Aroma: citrusvruchten, fleurig. Smaak: kruidig, hoppig, complexe bitterheid. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met mooi koolzuur en bitterige afdronk.

erickok (5183) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Extremely pale body, large bubbly head. Soft lemony, faint grassy, light sweet (American style) bread. Soft bitter yet some sharp tasting notes too. Much less nice and refined as expected. In fact almost watery. Huge disappointment. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)
