Poured on draft into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy gold with a white head of foam that leaves quickly. Aroma is almost nonexistent. I get some lemon zest, but that’s about the end of it. This beer left me wondering if I just completely missed it.

arkanu (29) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 29, 2016
Hazy, somewhat on the yellowish side of amber, with a consistent head that will not go away easily. Overall, it’s a very robust, full bodied beer, with a strong alcoholic feel along with yeast and flowery hops. Taste is yeasty, with hints of lime peels, spices and apricots. Not too bitter, but with a nice aftertaste that’s somewhat sweet, yet still bitter enough. Worth a try!

Lilja (2496) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, belgisk jäst, gräs, örter, peppar, citrus, grön banan. Fruktig, stor sötma och alkoholstyrka som slår igenom något, pepprig beska något sträv.

lbianchi66 (268) - FRANCE - FEB 23, 2016
Robe blonde orangée avec une jolie mousse qui tient bien. Pas mal de dépôt. Arômes agrumes et céréales. Goût agrumes, caramel, miel, fruits jaunes. L’amertume reste en bouche. Une bière honnête.

Goudblond met wandklevend fijn wit schuim. Geur: mild, fruitig, anders redelijk gesloten. Smaak: licht bitterig, wat sinaasappel. Romig mondgevoel. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Niet slecht maar weinig uitgesproken.

Blonde paille, grosse carbo, collet moyen persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes pain, fruits, amande, herbeuse. Mousse onctueuse, un peu verte, bonne amertume avec une longueur indeniable. Ronde, l’alcool ressort un poil trop.
