altonbrownd (4348) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Hazy yellow body with large head. Malty nose. Nice hoppy taste with lots of citrus. Also fruity and spicy. Quite enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised.

janubio (556) - SPAIN - OCT 3, 2015
Hazy golden colour, with a two fingers head that doesn’t hold, No lace. Smell of fruits, oranges, pears, spices (is that allspice?). Sweet palate, oily, medium body. Taste of fruits, pear, spices. I don’t know why I think it would be great with some blue cheese.

guzgorog (508) - FRANCE - SEP 23, 2015
Blonde dorée trouble, minimum syndical quant à la mousse et la pétillance. Le nez est sur la banane levurée et les céréales, une pointe acide évoquant le cidre et la pomme verte. La bouche est également banane mais aussi abricot sec, miel. Très sucrée mais pas au point d’être ecoeurante, la carbo n’est aussi mauvaise que la faible mousse et la faible petillance le laisse pense. L’alcool est très présent et réchauffe le gosier. Pas vraiment rafraichissante mais agréable, à réserver pour les soirées d’hiver !

Une belle bière blonde, puissante, très aromatique et harmonieuse, équilibrée et raffraîchissante malgré son taux d’alcool. Une bière de plaisir

Etiket: naar een recept van A. Verstraete en J. Vandenhove; te consumeren naar godsvrucht en vermogen, maar altijd met mate. Prima bier, waar de bedenkers met recht hun naam op durven zetten. 8,0%.

TtV (267) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow gold with a sturdy white top that fades somewhat. Aroma has malts and a spicy hint I can’t recognize. The taste develops beautifully: a mild sweetness at first develops into bitterness and leaves you with a spicy, metallic aftertaste which is quite pleasant surprisingly.

rdb84 (367) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Appearance: unfiltered apple juice, lasting foam head. Fruity aroma: mostly pear, apples, hint of pepper and nutmeg, hint of basement funk. Not bad. Sour taste with a sweet lacing. Sour: apple, sour white grape, hint of hairspray / turpentine. Sweet: apple pulp, pear, hint of yeast / cheese. This beer should definitely be paired with food: it has all the qualities to accentuate, rather than dominate the palate. This would go well with a salad with (goat / white) cheese, walnuts and / or radicchio, radish.
