[Courtesy of yespr - session @ yespr] Hazy golden with medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma with yeasty notes. Same goes for the somewhat sweet flavor that also holds coriander notes.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a stable large white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with also tones of citrus, spices and some yeast. The taste is light sweet and malty and has some nice fruity notes. The finish is light bitter and spicy and is long.

jjsint (2047) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle from Bacchanalia, drunk at home. Straw-yellow with a decent covering of white head. Icing sugar, yeast, and a gentle suggestion of allspice flood the nose. Sweet taste without being too sweet, although there is only a suggestion of hop at the end if the sip. Lemon drops and vanilla on the aftertaste. Enticing and certainly worth drinking.

The color is a clear yellow with a white head. The flavor is very fruity with banana and lemon notes. It is malt, honey with a dry bitterness . It has a good palate.
