MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
(bottle, 25cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Slightly sour malty nose with shy fruity notes and a tinge of vegetables. Slightly sweet and sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Fruity (apples, citrus) malty taste leading into a sweet and slightly sour-fruity finish. No glory. 12.VI.11

Abio (1817) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2011
Golden coloured. Head should hold longer, sticks ok to the glass. Smell is fruits, yeast, spices. A bit like a pilsner, but with a bit good added stuff. Lightly sour fruity, yeast taste. Spiced, a bit typical pilsner taste also gets trough, citrus, a bit hoppy.

eManu (514) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2010
Pours a clear amber colorwit some yeast floating and with an off white head. Aroma is a litle thin, with malts, hops, a hint of vanilla and spices. Flavors of malts, herbs, hops, straw and spices. Good carbonation, with a litle sweet and good bitter dry finish. Not a bad beer but not my favorite.
