tfredvik (1714) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2012
Hazy yellow body with a tiny but long-lasting white head, ok lacing. Very pleasant sweet and crisp aroma with yeast, spices and citrus. Light sweet taste and an unusually prominent acidity. Extremely crisp and citric flavour profile, lots and lots of lemon! Also yeast and spices. Lovely thirst-quenching mouthfeel. One of the most refreshing brews Iíve ever had!

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Tap at Rogue Wetbar. Pale golden straw colour. The nose is lovely and a little bit spicy. A touch of coriander and clove along with a touch of soft honeyed sweetness. A little touch of something like toffee but itís got a nice softness as well. Spicy yeast with a touch of light white pepper on the back. Simple, but nicely dry and spicy. Like a saison brewed with witbier yeast.

visionthing (4723) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Gaasa, Oslo. Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with lightly yeasty notes, citrus, pineapple and malt. Lightly sour with some bitterness in the finish. Sour and citric aftertaste with hints of apples. Quite nice and refreshing on a sunny afternoon in the backyard of Gaasa. (2012-06-22)

Hazy golden colour with a white head. A nice acidic (lemon?) and fruity (mango?) aroma. Milde moderate sweet flavour. Also acidic and fruity. A mix between lemon and mango. Nice refreshing beer.

Kestral (506) - Ňrnes, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Tap@Gaasa. Hazy orange, small white head. Looks innocent enough. Aroma is very subdued at first. Only a hint of lemon and some wheat. The first sip slaps you in the face with a barrage of lemon/lime, bananas, spicy fenols, loads of wheat. Itís probably the most lemony beer Iíve ever had. Quite acidic, but with just barely enough malt sweetness to keep it reined in. This is actually pretty extreme, like an IPA though itís not bitter. I just now read itís brewed with poppy. I donít know how poppy tastes, but I guess thatís what, amongst other things, gives it its lemony side. Otherwise I would have thought this was brewed with a ton of lemon zest and a couple of tons of sorachi ace. Light bodied, fairly mellow carbonation which suits it since the acidity already rinses the palate well enough. This is refreshing, raw and very different, and a great summer drink, though perhaps the citric acidity is a tad too much for some. I dug it.

Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours an unclear and golden beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt and fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional tropical fruit. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Can:   Golden, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft floral and mealy nose.   Similar on the tongue.   Semi-sweet, smooth, pale breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as musty or basement like as other Belgians, but still enjoyable for being very simple.
