allmyvinyl (2924) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2014
330ml bottle from the brewery online shop. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Floral and citrus hop aromas, light sweetness. Get a touch of fennel/anise, but if I wasn’t looking for it, not sure I’d have spotted it. Good bitter taste, and a more grassy herbal bitterness. Different, enjoyed this.

Liamrua (26) - Waterford, IRELAND - FEB 25, 2014
330ml bottle. 6.8%. Pours golden with 2 finger head which vanishes to nothing. Beautiful herbal fennel aroma, great balance of sweet herbal, honey, vanilla flavours matched by a balanced hoppiness. Strong carbination on the tongue and a lasting hop after taste which lingers. A Classic!

Buongiorgio00 (736) - - DEC 3, 2013
Troppo maltata e dolce per una birra inglese. Non sono riuscito a distinguere nettamente l’aroma di finocchio, ma in compenso è percettibile una nota erbacea che la rende un po’ più complessa. Risultato discreto e apprezzabile.

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
6.8% gold colour with a thin head, melon and apple aroma, not unlike Duvel in taste.

triskaideka (128) - Killarney, IRELAND - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle at home. Poured golden with white head. Very reminiscent of Belgian blond beers (small print says this - but hard to see w/o glasses). Very yeasty - couldn’t discern the fennel.

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 15, 2013
330ml bottle. Gold, lots of bubbles, big white rocky head. Grain, banana, a little clove spice. Flavour is very sweet, candi sugar, belgian yeast. Light body, very fizzy. Sweet, short finish. Too sweet.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is tree sap, orange, and a certain spiciness. Light sweetness, medium bitterness and light spice. Slightly dry and spicy finish. Lively mouthfeel. Reasonable, but I wouldn’t rush back to it.

Golden coloured, and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Sweet flavor, fruity and honey notes too. Sweet flavor, faint-faint bitter finish. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.
