kraddel (3728) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle . Pours hazy and dark blonde , good white head . Smell is yeasty, rather sweet . Taste is sweet ( sugar ) , bit metallic, grainy , sweet undertone . A fruity aspect from the yeast ( intense Banana ! - that is also collaborating with the sweetness in the beer . ) Ok beer . Rather high carbo , but still OK . Mouthfeel is nice , to the thick side for the ABV even .

AbouAli (151) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
on tap @Moeder lambic Couleur orange clair, mousse descend vite avec une bonne rétention. Nez levures belges épicées plus que bubble gum. Peu amère, le côté bubble gum se révèle plus en bouche et est trop présent. Reste propre au niveau des levures tout de même.

ruigo (1291) - PORTUGAL - DEC 17, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy orangish amber colour with a small white head. Yeast, spices, caramel, esters and herbal hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is not as complex as the aroma but as well interesting with more sweet notes than bitterness. Overall, a very nice beer.
