minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Good easy-drinking Belgian pale, nice citrus, a little sugary, but good stuff.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop. Pours translucent gold with a sllight white head. Aroma of earth and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is light stone fruit, earth, and some yeast/spice. It is somewhat bitter, and going well towards dry. Pretty tasty beer.

mandaritto (117) - LATVIA - OCT 11, 2015
Fruits, citrus, grass and water - those are my first impressions about this brew. Easy drinkable, light. Nothing special, but drinkable. Too watery-grassy for me. Not my type of brew.

Vells (1140) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - OCT 11, 2015
Feels fresh with some pleasant citrusy grassy hop kick for Belgian, piney, bit like grandma closet with corduroy soaked in naphthalene, decent malt background, spicy. Silky. Moderate to light bitterness all the way. Decent, but one time try

MelvinKalksma (300) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2015
Aroma: Really really faint overall. Malt, bread, grass and citrus. Appearance: Slightly turbid golden/amber beer with a steady white head. Taste/Palate: Thankfully more dominant than the aroma. Fresh and sweet, slightly bitter and slight pepper. Tastes more like a pilsner or IPA.

PhillyCraft (4528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
On tap the source, pours hazy golden with small to medium white head. Notes are bland in this one, and I would agree with other tickers that it isnít Belgian forward but more of a pils or something similar. Some hay, pepper, and light hop herbals in my glass. Light and sessionable but lacking some depth with regards to flavor.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
On tap and by the bottle at several places in Amsterdam, this became a favourite session beer during our visit. Hazy medium gold, average white head. Pleasant citrus rind and tropical fruit character (lime, guava), with softly funky yeast and crisp pale malts. Really interesting and so drinakable. For a session brew, this fits me perfectly.

cagou007 (611) - FRANCE - SEP 3, 2015
Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Nose is white flowers and weed. Aromas are malty and bready, citrus and grass. Medium body, average carbonation. Medium bitter and grassy finish. Reminds me more of a pilsner or an American pale ale than a Belgian ale, but quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much to say about this. Blonde/pilsner kind of beer with a bit more than average fruity hop notes. Easy drinking. Like it.
