Thanks bierkoning! Yellow-golden color, small white head. Pineapple, mango, citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied. Citrusy, grapefruity flavor - quite hoppy-"tart" flavor. A bit weaker on malt side, but nice UPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. More or less clear golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Wheaty and grassy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, a spicy yeasty touch in onion and garlic direction. Taste is strawy wheaty, minimally husky, chalky, mineral, more medicinal than hoppy bitterness, a touch of lemon; lively carbonation. Not fully convincing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, BB 06/2014, large sample. Cloudy golden color, thick off-white head. Aroma has some citrussy hop, garlic, onion, bit peppery yeast, some wheat, hint of bubblegum. Medium bitter in taste, hint of grapefruit and citrus, quite dry, again a bit spicy. Maybe a bit too dry on the finish and a bit thin on body. Slight hint of tartness. It reminds me a bit of the latest saison or farmhouse IPA hype. Ok beer, but a bit unbalanced.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. BB? From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy golden colour with a big foamy white head.
Fruity hops, yeast and some bitterness in a nice aroma.
The flavour is yeast, strong fruity and piney hoppiness, moderate bitterness and some dryness. Nice hop profile.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, BBE 06/2014) Murky orange with a huge white and lacy, pillowy head. Strongly citrus-lime-fruity, crisp nose with wheaty sourness. Flavor is also very lemon-lime-fruity with yeasty house flavor clearly present, and wheaty maltiness bringing sourness. Quite malty body and only very slight ashiness in the finish. Medium body, foamy and high CO2, nicely refreshing. Nice and fresh summer brew. 4555

Bottle. Pours a light hazy pale golden beer with a medium sized white head with good lacing on the sides. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and has touches of banana. Flavour is medium bitter with a sweet, fruity base. Light bitter aftertaste, soft carbonation and some yeasty touches. Quite ok.
