SaintMatty (5537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2011
Draught (Pressklubben, Stockholm, shared by Omhper, thanks) - Hazy golden with a white head. Fruity, yeasty and hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and some musty elements detected. Sweet, fruity and hoppy taste with more citrus notes and some spicy elements. Not bad, if nothing remarkable.

WisconsinBeer (711) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange, massive whipped eggwhite foamy head. Flavor is pale malts, bread and a hint of yeast. Nice mild backbone of candi sugars and a fresh hop profile to dry it out a bit. Solid easy sipping Belgian pale ale. Tasty.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pours a very hazy lemon orange with extremely think frothy white head. Aroma is a lot of bitter citrus (grapefruit) and some grainy metallic notes with cereal aroma as well. Flavor is very bready with undertones of caramel and brown sugar/candi sugar. Cotton candy flavors come out. Coriander present. Body is creamy but full of carbonation.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeasty and distinctively citrus-fruity and slightly zesty aroma with pale malt and herbal, spicy hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Pale malt character with grainy spots, notes of citrus and herbal, slightly peppery hops; dry-ish and moderately bitter and herbal hoppy finish with subtle fruity notes and an astringent aftertaste. 18.I.11

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle from Beer Planet. Murky orange body with a huge rocky head. Nose of fruit and peaches. Taste is great of hops and pine and lots of fruits. Nice texture and smooth too. Well done.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Effervescent orange with a massive, uneven billow of foam- very Belgium. Attractive, hugely soapy hop aroma brimful of pine needle, satsuma, aloe vera, yeasty freshness and curry leaf. Marmalade tangy with peppery, piney Belgian hop balanced with bready malt and vanilla. Crisp, lasting carbonation, hints of yeast and alcohol warm. Really clean. Saw this off in about 10mins and could happily have seen off another. Good, solidly hopped Belgian brew all round.

TheBeerGod (5347) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle. Golden amber with an enormous, fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy hops, grassy notes, Belgian yeast, dried fruit, apple skins and sweet malt. Taste is big spicy notes, grass, light straw, herbal hops, floral notes, sweet malt and fruit notes. Body is light-medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more big spicy notes, grassy and floral hops, dried fruit, powdery yeast, and sweet malt.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Hazy orange with a big head. Perfumey, grassy and somewhat yeasty aroma. A bit soapy flavours, noticeable alcohol, a bit too much carbonation. Yeasty flavours. Not too bad.
