0,55l bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear golden with some flotsam and a medium head. Aroma is grainy malts with some fruity notes. Flavor is fruity and grainy malts with a hoppy finish. Good stuff.

KoNrRiI (1264) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2016

0.55 bottle.
A hazy, gold color with a granulated, yeasty suspension, and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, light fruits, spices, flowers, nectar, and some herbs. It offers an uncanny combination of Belgian aromas with herbs, flowers, and nectar notes too boot - terrific. Taste is sweet, more fruity, flowers and herbs still play a big role with the latter contributing some bitterness. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is rather long and very floral. Overall the beer is great, but most importantly, I can say in all honesty that I have not yet tasted anything of this sort before. Points for originality.

R4N5H (889) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
66cl bottle (shared) at The Globe, Hong Kong on 27-Sep-2016. Reddish amber in colour with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt, dark fruit, spices and malt. Full body and medium/soft carbonation. Taste heavy in malt and stewed fruit. Lightly hopped. Character of a Belgian ale. OK, but a bit heavy going.

Bawelt (627) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 14, 2016
Nez complexe mais quilibr : du malt, du rsineux, des fruits jaunes, des pommes/poires confites. Magnifique. Bouche encore plus resineuse mais reste ronde, fine, trs malte. Le sorachi est trs prsent sur la longueur. Trs jolie.

Erasmus_ro (2595) - Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle, #h-J16, 24/06/16, thanks bluus. Pours slightly hazy with a small, but stylish, classy and long-lasting, white head. Aroma is some hoppiness, yeast, apricot, banana. Taste is semi-dry, banana, apricot, yeast. Fairly full. A mixture of a dry Belgian and a German wheat.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
Cloudy med amber. Thin head. Phenols, paint on the nose. Quite sweet and a fairly pronounced alcohol character. Ok if you like strong quasi-Belgiany things.
