Benzai (12332) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - OCT 9, 2012
Sampled from bottle @ monthly De Molen tasting. A bit hazy yellow color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell malts, a bit sweetish and herbs or spices. Taste malts, sweetness, herbs or spices. Not really my thing and above all too much carbonation, low to medium body.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of wheat and malt. Cloudy dirty light amber color, big fluffy white head, bands of lace. Taste is malt with wheat and yeast bread. Slight bittering and a little alcohol warmth finish things. A little heavy in the belly, otherwise a solid brew.

wombat23 (378) - Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Shared 750 ml bottle. Pours deep gold and hazy with a white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of honey, yeast, breads, and spice. Taste is honey, Belgian yeast, bread, and spice with very strong floral elements. Maybe a tiny hint of bubblegum and citrus. Finish is dry and a bit hoppy. Good.

darbeer75 (316) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Aroma: sour and dry; Appearance: hazy golden straw with thin, white head that hangs around; Taste: interesting combination of some sourness and yeastiness with a finish closer to a lager; works well together; there’s even some smoky notes; Palate: medium body with long, sweet/smoky/bitter finish; Overall: very complex and quite good. Would buy again.
