Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml, poured into a big tulup. ABV 3.5% Pale golden yellow in colour, crystal clear, with two fingers of white soapy head, very good retention and light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass, soap, a little bit of lemon. Taste of grass, hay, lemon, lemongrass, lime leaves. Mildly bitter on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation towards the high side. Overall quite good, very refreshing and with such a low ABV it could be an all day beer.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Cask på Bishop Gustav Malmö. Ljust gul, med en aning grönt i färgen, ungefär som citronsaft. Inget skum. Lätt frisk fruktig och lätt gräsig doft. Mycket lätt kropp, fina rena smaker av passionsfrukt, lime, gräs. Lätt sötma, fruktig och en lite gräsig besk med inslag av tallskott. Väldigt lättdrucken men men fina smaker. Inte så årstidstypisk kanske.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2013
On cask @ In de Wildeman. Slightly hazy gold pour. Lemony aroma, quite citrusy, lemon zest, grainy notes, light grassy hops. Taste is quite bitter, not much malt body, super dry finish. Palate is light bodied even though the beer is quite full flavored. Good, but a bit too dry and astringently hoppy for me.

(Cask, Rainhill Beer Fest): Slightly hazy light golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, pine. Taste is a very light citrussy flavour with some grassy, floral and pine notes. Little bit of spice on the finish. Refreshing but fairly standard beer.
