(LCRBM2) Very nice, good looking hazy blond beer. Smells good and hoppy: grassy and pineapple. Tastes very young, fresh and greenery. A top class session ale!

Bottled, LCRBM. Aroma of pure malts and flowers. Hazy, pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Sweet, malty, bitter, soft and dry. No exceptional flavors but what a quality!

Thanks to sk8viking for this beer.
Pours yellow gold, hazy with a foamy white head. The aroma is yeasty. The flavor is a bit yeasty with some citrus backbone. Great beer on a hot day.

2004. Huge thanks to hopdog. Lightly hazy, warm straw body with a clingy white head. Nice biscuity malt aroma with pleasing buttery and nutty characters plus some overripe pineapple and peppery yeast. Drying, but has good depth of nutty malts and great yeast signatures. Medium bitterness, uncovered by the dryness. A very satisfying session beer. At least I wish I could call it a session beer, because I really enjoyed this.

Much thanks to hopdog for this vintage ’04 bottle...
Appears a hazy light gold with a small white head that slowly fades out. Very mild spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of yeasty, candy citrus and some mild bready dough.
Taste is of the same aromas with a lemony zest standing out among flavors.
Mouthfeel is yeasty, thin, and slick along the palate.

Finally I had the opportunity to taste this beer, with high expectations. Light amber coloured with a large white head, an a massive amount of carbonation. Light malty aroma, some bitter hoppyness, and yeasty touches. Full body, rather surprising for such a alcohol percentage. Light bitter with some carbonation. Malty finish, light bitter, it stood up to my expectations, a very nice one.

Bottle. Hazy golden, slighter lighter colour than the tripel. Durable, lacing white head. Deliciously sweet and malty aroma with candy sugar and raisins. Sweet and malty in the beginning with good offsetting bitterness, ending quite dry. Medium to light body. Surprisingly different from the tripel, complex and highly drinkable.
