TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours cloudy light golden with a thin wispy white head. Notes of resinous hops, citrus, pine, pear, peach, alcohol and pepper. Full bodied, resinous and alcoholic with lush carbonation.

Cybercat (3438) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Comes out of the tap hazy yellow with a decent eggshell head. Aroma has yeasty, malty, and floral components, inviting a taste. Flavor is yeasty and malty with some hops and a subtle floral note. Texture is about average in both fizz and thickness. If not outstanding, certainly enjoyable. Just follow your nose - or whatever.

Fatehunter (1335) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy light straw body. The aroma is mild overall: coriander, lemon and dry grain. The taste starts with lemon bitterness, moves to a mild honey sweetness and finishes with a dry bitter note. Good profile. The texture is silky with right amount of fizz. Excellent.

shrubber85 (7867) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Musty, yeasty orange/lemon malt and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange/lemon, light caramel malt, and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Very pleasant.

GG (2323) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
12oz bottle - Golden yellow body, clear with a sturdy white cap. Aroma seems pretty traditional of a Belgian ale, soft malt profile, prominant yeast esters, fruity with a touch of light spice. A grassy flavor, a spot of citrusy hops, yeast and lightly spiced. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Peach, nectarine, pear, unripe banana, baked apple, honey, biscuit, spicy yeast. Big, frothy, chalky mouthfeel.

jimhilt (2420) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a one finger white head that fades slowly leaving traces of lace. Hazy straw color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light citrus nose and flavor is tart citrus with some sweet malt. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, dark yellow with a soapy white ring. Sweet grapefruit, peach and pineapple aroma. Flavour is the same mix....sweet and fruity...a bit of yeast. Very smooth a full of flavour. Sharp and light for the ABV. Wonderful.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
Low pffft as the cap comes off and low aroma ensues. It hints at fresh guava and peach, and orange sherbet candy. It tickles the nose; it certainly has an alcohol spice to it. The first pour a radiant straw yellow, minute particles held in suspension amongst its fine, well conditioned carbonation. Head is headstrong; held high, a good 2 inches, is a soppy, rocky snow-white mess that leaves a lovely lace. Quite herbal, dry, pasty and well hopped with what I swear is Spelt hops. Herbal, earthy, weedy and slightly floral. Bitter peak before all hops in the finish flushed by subtle fruit esters. Slightly but lightly camphorous, twiggy, candyish. Light on the palate with very soft carbonation. Malt holds its own; quite supple but enough meld and hold balance. This is a strange brew. Got the sense of tasting a moderate ABV kellerbier, and not not a 9% Belgian. It is fresh tasting (my bottle a good 9 months old). Zombie beer. Struggling to walk now. What? Skeletor from He-man. Yeah, on the label, haha, creepy. Creepy, No, slap-slap, a quash of water to the face for wake-up. Likey for completely forgotten reasons!! (75cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
