77ships (4304) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2013
Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Lightly hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Nose is huge on barn, lots of white pepper, wild herbs, almost funky, touch EU hops,… Taste is spices, barn, rustic, white pepper, slightly fruity with some spices, hay, tangy yeast and light citrus. Smooth, slightly oily, very easy to drink. Another beer which I tought was very good but has very low rating eh whatever.

Grzesiek79 (3307) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Dobre swieze i ekologiczne piwo. O przyjemnym swiezym aromatem. Chmiel aromatyczny. W smaku delikatne a zarazem wyraziscie swiezo chmielowe, slodowe ale nie slodkie. Bojna i spora biala piana. Zlociste ale metne i to porzadnie. Delikatne i latwe w konsumpcji piwo Bio.

Bottle 0,33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland. Bursztynowe, mętnawe piwo z obfitą pianą i świeżym, cytrusowym aromatem. W smaku orzeźwiające, słodowe, lekko ziemiste i chlebowe z bardzo łagodną, cierpką goryczką na finiszu.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle from Paris. Huge fluffy head over orange beer. Peachy aroma. Fruity, quite sweet, just a little hint of stable. Very pleasant mouth feel. Some sourness mixed in, too. Very drinkable. Bitter and quite complex finish, leaves you wanting more than a 33 cl bottle. Deserves wider distribution.

FatPhil (9646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2011
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop, Belgium)
7 Lovely light refreshing floral aroma, slight fruitiness, apples.
4 Slightly hazu straw colour, huge rocky then persistent and self-supporting fluffy head. Initially poured both glasses as clear as possible, but added the non-chunky yeast to one glass later in order to compare.
7 Light grainy and slightly appley retronasals. Uplifting and refreshing. Lightly fruitiness to the body, white grape, but a lovely light bready graininess. With more yeast, it’s mellower, but not any less in flavour, it brings out the light breadiness.
4 Refreshing palate, lively carbonation. Finish mostly follows the taste, but has a lovely gentle noble hopping to it, a touch of white pepper that lasts for ages. With more yeast, the finish seems enhanced.
15 It’s rare to get such a non-big beer be so worthy. Everything you’d want in such a beer is there in sufficient quantities, and they all help to reinforce each other rather than fighting against each other. Super blond ale. Don’t pour the crap in, but don’t be afraid of the light yeast that doesn’t mind hanging in suspension.

rarbring (1556) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Aroma: Smelling fresh fruits, rhubarbs, lemon, some mineral notes.
Appearance: The beer is deep brass colored, starting clear but with much sediments fogging it. A white fizzy head that settles leaving little lacing, some curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet and fruity, lemon, bitter orange, grape tonic, an alkaloid bitter finish.
Palate: High carbonation, rather smooth and refreshing initially then a coarse dry finish. Small body.
Overall: Lack some body, and has a bit too mineral/alkaloid notes. But not a bad beer in all.
Note: Bottle 330 ml. Reviewed 2012-08-05.

Quack-Duck (8194) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2013
bottle from saveur-biere.com. Hazy to cloudy pale yellow colour, fluffy white head. Aroma of lovely floral hops. Medium-bodied with a very pleasant malt base, slightly grainy, but elegant and light. Lots of floral, slightly perfumy hops with a grassy-resiny touch and even a touch of citrus fruit. Quite complex yet highly drinkable and very, very moreish.
