Fin (7418) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
On tap at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Brighton,Saturday 5th May 2012 Only got to try a a small glass of this as it was just running out when I went to order one, still it was jolly decent in a very Belgian way. Large frothy white head (though this may have been because it was running out) hazy golden colour, with some yeastiness on the nose along with a light floral touch and dab of spice. Taste was more of the same, tasted quite strong, I hadn’t checked the strength or style. Enjoyable just wish there had of been a little more. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
On tap at Cask Pub& Kitchen Brighton. Hazy pale gold with thin white head. Banana estery aroma. Good level of stinging hop. Its a Thornbridge take on a Belgian blond no doubt. Its more or less exactly what I would have predicted of this. Peachy. Hugely good though.

markas101 (1843) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
Draught, The Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Hazy yellow, lemon and coriander aroma. Sharp in the mouth, quite carbonated. Like a slightly stronger Hoegarden.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Tap at Euston Tap. Pours a cloudy pale yellow, like a spoiled white table wine, with a thin white ring of bubbles. Aroma is herbal coriander and clove. I found it quite thin and a little fizzy on the palate. There is a dominant taste of dry green apple and a little white grape juice with the alcohol quite apparent. Banana and coriander flavours are also present and it starts a little creamy then dries with a chardonnay-like aftertaste.
