kubilai (111) - , Quebec, - NOV 15, 2011
Pours a sparkling amber liquid with a foamy white head that lasts". The aroma is yeasty with hints of grapefruits and ginger. Taste of citrus, notes of orange, spices, and yeast. The alcohol taste is too strong. Very sparkling. Fair bitterness. Missing some complexity. Bof..

AleRider78 (1456) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a huge foamy bubbly head and dissipates rather quickly to a thin layer that leaves thick patchy lacing. Has a golden appearance. Yeasty, grainy and wheaty aromas. Some spices and resin hops as well. Has fairly fruity flavours, some mild citrus and herbal hops. Excessive carbonation. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Very good brew.

thomat (4144) - G�teborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2017
On tap @ Den Bette Ölhus. Yellow with a medium white head. Malty and fruity tones. Malt, fruit, hops and bitterness. Full body with a long bitter / fruity finish.

chromeotaphor (175) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2017
Pittig spicy caramelig aroma. Prachtig felbruisend bier met forse kraag. Bier met een aanwezig palet dat spicy en pittig in de afdronk is. Fel van smaak met name in de afdronk, droog en pittig. Lekker biertje maar niet al te speciaal, voor de liefhebbers van een droge maar pittige afdronk.

lullasky (51) - Nice, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2017
Blonde très claire, tirant vers le champagne. Légère mousse persistante. Notes fruitées (banane ?) et florales. Peu d’amertume, longue en bouche.

MartyW (332) - DENMARK - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle at Delirium. Augustijn grand cru. Banana and wheat with light yeast. Taste is mainly wheaty with some banana and some yeast.

ForlornHope (536) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle at home. Well past the Best Before date. Orange-amber in colour with a tight, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of marzipan, burnt toast and yeast. There is also a whiff of booze. Taste is slightly sweet to start with a bitter follow. Sappy malt, sweet and fruity with caramel and fruit notes, almost a plum jam taste. Light carbonation, smooth and mellow on the palate with the alcohol strength coming through at the end.
