wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 17, 2011
{thoughts} Strikingly similar to Duvel, except for a citrus rind addition.

{elements} Hazy, peach hue; very tall, white foam. Duvel-like pilsner malt and banana aroma with an addition of citrus. Moderate sweetness, moderate acidity, light-moderate bitterness; acidity and carbonation play down the sweetness, making it seem fairly dry. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, creamy texture.

Retired? Really? Iíve had this sitting on a shelf next to me for a good eight months without realising. Ah well, now Iíve opened it... Clear golden yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Some lemony freshness on the nose with lemon peel, lemon curd and lemon floor cleaner, but in saying that, it is a beautiful meld of lemon. Tingly mouthfeel and light flavours with (surprise, surprise) lemon and maybe a bit of borage honey as well. It is crisp, like green apple peel crisp, and zingy. Rather good all told.

Such a pitty that this beer is retired. By far one of the best Blonde-beers I have aver tasted. Very nice and aromatic palate but very soft mouthfeel and sweet taste.

De beste van de Wolf-bieren dat ik al gedronken heb, een aanrader om eens te proberen

Thompson (422) - - APR 15, 2014
Old rating from a couple of years ago, found in old scoresheets from a tasting session with Benzai at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Not a lot of notes taken. Golden colour, lightly spicy, yeasty, fruits and some bitter. Nice beer.

mmmbeer (1291) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a 15 % hazy dulled yellow orange color, formed a bubbly white head that did not lace. Aroma of straw, yeast, and light wheat. Hits the mouth with light medium body, malt is extremely light even for the style, various spices in the middle, finish is drying and a very light hint of vanilla. Itís not that bad...

ttoadee (852) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Hazy light gold, Floral nose with toasted grain. Sweet. Alcohol starts in the middle, not too heavy. Vanilla and light hops out the back door.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours an average yellow with a nose of soured bread and melon-infused body odor. Flavor is spritely bread with floral spices and lighr body odor. Watery mouthfeel. Pass.

harbert (100) - leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2012
Pale golden colour with a haze. Firm head that produces a beautiful lacing. Fruity aromaís, peaches, citrus lead to a duvelish finish, a strong carbonation that brings bitterness in the spicey finish
