Bottle at Monks, Brussels. Hazy whitish straw color, small white head. Lots of black currant on the nose, also citrus, fruit candy and a slight funkiness. Light sweetness that quickly goes away to leave a tart dryness. A bit candylike with all the black currant, but still refreshing.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a murky light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong wheat and bananas. The flavor is wheat, corn, oranges, bananas and pepper. The hops add quite a bit of spiciness to the overall flavor but don’t add much bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2010
Golden blond coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium white head. Sweet, slightly hoppy hinted aroma with a short sugary alcoholic tint. Medium to full, light creamy palate. Finish is sweet, malty and light alcholic hinted. Rather short ended, misses some clear biterness and depth.

joergen (21730) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle at home. Cloudy golden coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of spices with notes of yeast. Fruity flavour of caramel, spices and hops with notes of yeast and alcohol. Spicy and hoppy finish.

Vaiz (3595) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden color with an instantly dissipating white head. Aroma of fruits, earth, old beer and nail-polish remover. Flavor is earthy, dry, fruity, somewhat malty, slightly bitter and a bit funky. Very much dried old beer in the finish. Strange and troublesome, yet bizarre enough to remain slightly appealing. I’m not exactly sure what to think of it.

travita (4195) - Frisco, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The color is yellow, has a white head. The smell is caramel, sweet, malts, and floral. The taste is malts, corn, sweet, and not much.

Defreni (2687) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 25, 2010
Flaske: Pilsnergul klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Let parfumeret duft. Fin smag, igen parfumeret, men ikke over imod en trippel, snarere en blonde. Sød typisk belgisk lys stærk øl. Ok.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2010
(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a dirty yellow with white head. Aroma of light citrus, malt and a bit of farmhouse. Flavor has a light fruit taste with a touch of farmhouse and lightly sweet malt. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.
