Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a hazy pale golden body under a big, foamy white head. There’s lots of lemony brett in the aroma, with pine cones, pineapple, some candied peach, hints of leather and barnyard and a faint grassy touch. Notes of mandarine and also a whiff of pale malts. Even some gooseberries. It’s dry and rather effervescent on the palate, medium to full-bodied, almost tart. Lemon, pineapple, candied peach, some funky flavors and a really fine bitterness in the flavor. Everlasting fruity and bitter finish with funkyness and a faint peppery hint. It’s perhaps a bit too enthusiastic awarding a 9 for flavor, it’s not at the same level as the aroma, especially not initially, but the finish is just lovely. It sure deserves a very high rating. I could easily accept this as a regular beer. 160423 Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2016
Bottle 750ml @ SommerhusetAlusmamuts (2171) - LATVIA - APR 20, 2016
Pours hazy pale yellow with a huge white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, brett, funk, citrus, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, yeast and some fruitiness. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long dry, bitter, funky, brett, mango, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, pepper and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
Pale golden with rich white head. Slightly fruity aroma. Strong bitterness on the background of wit beer and lambic taste. Some spiciness (coriander?). Lasting bitter aftertaste deeply in the throat. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big fluffy head. Aromas of tropical fruits, grass, and some brett funk. Flavors are all tropical, grassy, yeasty, with some lingering funk. Fatehunter (2641) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours a bit foamy head (half the pint glass) on the lightest straw body.
The aroma is a big hit of spices and flowers. Nice.
The taste is fairly clean, a little spice, mellow fruits and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp.
The aroma is great, the flavor may get better with age.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2017 Visual: Twisty wire cap and composite cork. Pours light straw yellow with huge slowly dissipating creamy bubbly head, torrents of fast activity, small bits of sediment.jb (3454) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Nose: kumquat banana wheat malt, traces of funk, quite bright. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: fizzy-bubbly wholeness,
Mid-palate: (lvl-3)-sweetness, sharp sour-tangy acidity, (MAIN) background funk, juicy kumquat citrus, banana wheat malt -> dry hoppy bitter
Finish: light oak, coriander, dry wheat, lingering bitter hops, kumquat exhale, background peppercorn spice, burpy.
Summary: Very refreshing with a boatload of flavours to discover all the while backed up by a very bubbly mouthfeel. Although only medium-bodied, it delivers in smooth transitions and enticing complexity.
That wonderful characteristic Galaxy nose. Tropical and citrus fruit. Very hazy and pale. Appearance is not this companies strong suit. Palate is brilliant. Soft sweet then syrupy with tingly carbonation and pepper finish. Very subtle. Real good. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
650 mL bottle. Banana Popsicle yellow with a big, rocky white head. As close to Orval as I’ve ever tried. Yeah. Great hopping. The_Osprey (9721) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Keg at CPK. Quite a vibrant yellow, hazy, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, lemon. Body is light, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is earthy, wheat, leaves, jelly babies with extra dusted sugar, chalky, dry papery finish. Dry, dirty and earthy. Not as clean as expected, but decent.
