Lekker vol biertje. Lijkt wat op la chouffe maar dan iets kruidiger en minder zoet. Ook wat minder diepgang. Verder lekker biertje, medium koolzuur. Prima mondgevoel.

Vaiz (3617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity and somewhat chemical. Flavor is spicy and sweet with a strange soapy messy bitterness. Not good. Lively carbonation and a thick body.

Een troebel biertje met een witte kop. De eerste slok sprak me niet zo aan, maar daarna sprak me de zachte smaak me juist erg aan.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 31, 2012
(From notes 29 Oct, 2012) Bottle. White fluffy head, leaves lacing. Smells a bit like a wheat beer, with flowery (not very sweet) hops. The beer is a slightly hazy golden. Flavor malty and hops bitterness. A good balance I guess. Carbonation is about medium, feels a bit stingy. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and long. This was a refreshing beer. Good stuff.
