Frovigalning (2926) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It poured a pale clear golden liquid with a white head. Taste and smell of sweet malts, honey and sugar. Slightly harsh mouthfeel, medium thick body and high amount of carbonation.

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Blonde beer with a strong head. The aroma is fruity and citrus, and the flavour is warmingly citrus, fruity and mildy spiced / aniseedy. Overall a nice Belgian ale.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of peaches, orange and spicy hints of coriander. Fruity, slightly spicy taste with apricots, citrus and a spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Well balanced and quite tasty.

Noctilucus (100) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2010
Hazy golden blonde colour, almost as cloudy as a witbier. At first the taste hints of honey but without its sweetness (think a lighter version of Barbãr) but sharper than most beers of this type. Definitely makes one think of coriander. The aftertaste is less bitter and has a subtle touch of malt in there. Overall a nice, enjoyable brew though nothing special. And surprisingly enough I’d almost recommend this one as a thirst quencher, in spite of the relatively high ABV (7.5%) as it lacks a bit of body for me.

Hansen (6471) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
Orange and unclear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Malty aroma, faint spicy notes. Flavor is heavy sweet, lots of fruit, spice too, light acidic and moderate bitter. Some hoppy notes in the flavor. Lively carbonation.

Zita (4538) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
bread, nuts, toast, golden, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish.

dnstone (2131) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Too light to say on the aroma. Super gold color with white head. Plain blonde, forgetable.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a medium golden yellowish color. Aromas of fruit, yeast and some pepper. Flavors are sour, yeasty, and a touch of sweetness at the finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Tap at Paradise Fest.
Cleanish gold with a thin white head. Very sweet and fruity all round. Faint chewy malt and a sweet alcohol finish. Dull but inoffensive.

saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2009
