VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - MAR 11, 2013
Presentation: Stubby 11.2 oz. brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Cloudy, pale gold color. Develops a two finger bright white head that goes down but remains all the way to the end. It leaves some great lacing. Smell: The scent is sweet, fruity, mainly banana. There’s some nice herbal and malt notes, as well as some yeast in the background. Taste: A fruit flavor is dominant. It has spice and herbal flavors that make for a very complex and appealing package. There’s alcohol and a tiny malt sweetness at the end, with some bitterness to balance everything out. Mouthfeel: It’s smooth, creamy and medium bodied. It has mildly high carbonation that’s not overwhelming but still present. Overall: Very drinkable and complex. It has a lot of flavors and scents, but also a simple sweetness, balanced perfectly by a hint of bitterness and an alcoholic character, that just make it a great beer.

PotjeBier (1999) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
From 33 cl bottle, shared. Clear golden blonde color (until I poured in some of the yeast...). Firm, rocky white head with good lacing. Aroma’s: fruit (notably citrus), yeast, a bit herbal, plus some grain retronasal. Flavor is light sweet. Light to medium bodied. Short finish, slightly dry, with virtually no bitterness.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Frits. Fast-rising head. Yellow colour. Nice, citrusy aroma. Spicy, smooth, buttery even. Not much of a kick to it. Watery and murky finish.

Bosskie (587) - NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2015
Pale golden opaque beer with some gentle bubbling and a small white head. Smell is wheat, grainy with some rotten fruit and a touch of citrus. Some white pepper. Calcium, mineral. Taste is metallic, fizzy, lightly bitter with a dry, lightly astringent finish. Rotten fruit sweetness. Not really my taste but an elegantly balanced beer.
