3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden with bright white fizzy ring of head. Smells of sweet honey and hint of orange oil. Feels very carbonated and foamy on the tongue. Taste is very subtle, but there is some harsh astringency on the back of the palate that gets scrubbed away by the carbonation. This beer seems to have more texture and feel than it does flavor. As it warms I get hints of chamomile tea with honey on the nose, still no distinct flavor, but I might say mildly herbal and malty (but almost completely dry).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden and hazy, with huge head, which leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma has citrus, twigs, grass and little bit of sourness (from the yeast?). Taste has again a lot of twigs, citrus and yeasty herbiness. A little bit of woodiness is also present. Palate is well carbonated, dry and medium hoppiness. Different pale ale, with belgian ale characteristics. Hoppiness is mostly apparent.

Bottle (750ml) bought in September 2014 in Sweden (Systembolaget).
Fruity smell and taste with a nice palate touch to it. Excellent balance between fruity and bitter tastes. Color is deep orange, reminding a bit of classic tropical juice except perhaps slightly more transparent.

23.08.2014, 0,75l bottle shared with friends @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh yeasty, leafs, citrus peel, hops, yeast, moss, light malts, lawn, flowers. Taste is slightly harsh floral, flowers, weeds, yeast, leafs, light malts, citrus peel, moss, minerals, wet grass. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a huge white head. A rather impressive aroma for the style, blending the classic belgo blonde elements with a more modern, hoppy profile. There're yeasty, candied scents along with some pine forest, citrus fruits and a hint of mixed spices. The palate is medium bodied with some hints of alcohol, moderate bitterness which is still more prominent than expected for the style, and a rather long finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Dark gold with foamy white head. Definite Belgian yeast notes on the nose with some light fruity hops in there too. Yeast notes give this a full mouthfeel, slightly hoppier than your usual Belgian blonde, with quite a bitter finish.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
En kryddig citrusarom med inslag av jäst och aning råttpiss. Intressant och lovande. Smaken är förvånansvärt blek i jämförelse med den intressanta doftpaletten. Lite fruktigt och med koriandern. Bra avvägd beska, men utan några intressanta vändningar. Välgjort och balanserat.
Utseendet är ljust, disig brygd med ett tämligen storbubbligt skum med ok halveringstid.
Eftersmaken är kort, metallisk och det är bara en mjuk beska som ligger kvar. Återigen utan något intressant i sig.
