Super farty aroma. Simple malt body. A touch sweet. Cleaner than might be inferred from the comments by others round the table. Finish has a dry papery tingle. Had a lot worse, but wouldn’t chose to have this.
630 ml green bottle shared by Travlr: Pours a clear golden with a few stray while bubbles. Has a mildly skunky, slightly grainy nose. Starts with a thin bland mild grainy malty body with grassy hop notes and a dry bitter finish. Needs more body and balance. GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
630mL thanks to Travlr. The pour is a clear straw, SRM3, with a healthier than expected white head. Decent retention. Nose is sugary candy, lager sting, lemon soap. Not offensive in the nose. Taste is disgusting- heavy diacetyl with higher alcohols like fusels that bring on an instant headache. My head is thumping and I feel dizzy. Holy shit, I think I’m losing my vision in one eye. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 28, 2011
63cl bottle, thanks Travlr. Small white head atop clear pale straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, skunk, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, skunk. Light body, low carbonation.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours very pale straw yellow with medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is faint malt and corn. Flavor is light malt, watery and a dry finish. Light body, warmth, and carbonation. KyotoLefty (10531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, held at Dean Swift.
Aroma is skunk, bread, grass. Pale yellow color. Flavor of skunk, cardboard, buttered bread. Slightly tangy. About as bad as I expected.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011 Bottle at Le Meridien. Nice label and bottle. Pale yellow color, head lasts 3 microseconds. Aroma has dust and black pepper. Taste is watery peppery straw, high carbonation. Finish of cardboard. No. fodesouare (24) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2011
It’s a slightly sour smelling, watery looking beverage. Doesn’t taste great, but most people just don’t drink one, and the fifth one tastes much better than the first. Best part about Gazelle is it comes in a big bottle. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle from Porokhane restaurant, Paris
Hazy light blond color. Aroma of paper, corn. Drier and more bitter than expected, this doesn’t mean it’s good. But it’s drinkable, not the worst.
