Renobob (830) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Blonde clair, nez très aromatique. Au palais on retrouve du houblon, de la fleur blanche, une pointe d’agrume. Plaisant.

BrunoSanchez (140) - Fermo, ITALY - OCT 28, 2014
Ale bionda con schiuma consistente bianca. Al naso floreale e fruttata. In bocca corpo medio leggero e ben bilanciata. Il sapore luppolato rinfresca il palato senza lasciare sensazione amara. Finale pulito. Si tratta di una biona birra dissetante ma niente di che.

0,5 pullo Stockmann Herkku. Kirkas kullankeltainen. Tuoksussa hedelmäisyyttä, ylikypsää hedelmää, humalaa, jopa hiukan vaniljaa. Maussa humalaa, mallasta, ruohoa, hedelmää, vaaleaa leipää.

dnicolaescu (939) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 1, 2014
BOTTLE 50 CL. Look: clear golden, smallish white head. Aroma: flower - roses, sweet fruit, honey sweetness, a touch of hop resins. Taste: fruity, honey sweet, less flowery and more tart/astringent hops (is it the elderflower?), low to moderate bitter and fruity sweet finish. Simple, but well done beer.

Ambro206 (146) - ITALY - SEP 21, 2014
Discreta birra. Bilanciata, beverina, piacevole. Le note del luppolo si uniscono alle scorza di limone per un risultato decisamente citrico ma apprezzabile.

Borresteijn (4915) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
50cl bottle, tfs J&R! Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is floral, malty, citrus. Flavour follows, nice bitter finish with some elderflower. Light-bodied. Nice floral golden ale.

thmsboyd (37) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle BBE Jan 2016. Slightly earthy aroma, perhaps a touch of butyric; floral. Clear, golden appearance with a reasonable , frothy head. Very dry to taste with definite earthiness. A touch of sweetness but mainly bitter. Medium-bodied with a bone-dry texture. Moderately-carbonated for this style of ale. Lingering herbal notes
