Consumed at Zythos, St Niklaas, Belgium, 08-03-09 Pours clear golden with a white head. Some bitter hops ’lager style’ maybe? Taste is bitter but the sweetness comes through. I definately keep getting hints of a pilsnerness about this (maybe its just me) Its refreshing and tasty, there is plenty of maltiness, its quite clean but the strength is really showing now.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Tap @ ZBF 2009.
Pours clear golden with a slight green hue. A nice, frothy, white head on top. Aroma has notes of brett and some soft, sweet wheat. Fat mouthfeel, but still with a rather lively carbonation. Sweet flavour, some good wheat. Heavy vinoiusness, but never reaching alcoholic. The sweet wheat it wonderfully balances by both the alcohol and a sharp, zesty lemon note. Lovely, balanced and elegant.

JorisPPattyn (9468) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2009
Draught Good yellowish head, with textbook lace, over metallic-golden beer with a slight verdigris shine. Hyper-typical V.S. nose with white candi sugar, esters, and some alcohol, V.S. thumbprint more clear than anything. Sweet start with drier following, fruity-estery. Well bodied and very slick, quite carbonated. It supposed to be new. As Pierlala, Meerendree,... Mind you, it’s NOT bad.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Pour is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is a grassy musk with a hint of lemon. Flavor is quite impressive, nothing witchy about it, but a smooth kind of earthy ale. It starts with a rather gentle malt texture with a slight finish of lemon with mild bitterness. Certainly not a knock-you-socks-off Belgian, but it is pretty drinkable.
