jcwattsrugger (12296) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2012
25.4oz bottle-shared by jtclockwork-pours cloudy/hazy gold with a light tan head. Aroma is berry, spice/herbal/floral, light/medium malt. Taste is soft berry with some tart, herbal/lemon hops, honey, light/medium malt-bready. Not as much going on here as the nose. Soft carbonation, easy.

thewolf (12272) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy yellow with practically no head. Aroma is lemony, lightly tart. Good deal of oranges and floral notes. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, lightly fruity tart, oranges, wood and brett. Light dryness. Okay, but not terribly balanced.

DocLock (10208) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy orangy pour with 2-finger off-white head. Aromas of hopcit, berries, some orange zest, and floral notes. The flavor is hopcitric, with the aforementioned berry and floral spicy notes, plus some malts in the background.

JorisPPattyn (9670) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2007
Draught Huge very dense & fine head; pinkish-amber beer, orange shine. Very fine, fruity-flowery nose, garden herbs and a hint of lemon(soap), touch of vanilla. Soft-sweet, very lightly fruity taste, with a sharper citrus spike, cider-like, in the bottled version. Again vanilla retronasal. Very lightly bodied, slick, a bit oily, but ending dry and extremely well-attenuated. This is probably one of the best summer drinking beer ever had - big congrats to the brewer for this effort in such a light beer.

MartinT (9590) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 Second tasting, from the tap at Bir&Fud, Roma:
The body is nowhere as thin as the bottled version I had had and the flowers and pepper are a lot better expressed. This is clean, immensely drinkable, creative and well put together. Blend a Rose dHibiscus with a Route des pices and youll get something similar (but a tad heavier). 3.8/5

First tasting, from the bottle:
My Bottom Line:
Sweet pot-pourri notes and pointy pink grapefruit pith ride this slender and quizzical estival quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Chunks of yeast abound in the cloudy beige topped with a slim veil of foam.
-In the same "flowery, light, and quenching" category, I would much rather go for a Rose dHibiscus.
-Is it the spice and flower blend, or is lactobacillus creeping up on this one?
-The citrusy fruitiness is dangerously close to that of a cleaning agent in its chemical leanings.
-Bubbles are big are take up a lot of room in the palate.

Bottle. 3.0/5

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2016
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Italian Beer Wknd #5. Lger orang, col pais blanc crmeux. Arme au nez malt pils complt par des effluves plus pices de seigle. Petite pointe biologique de miel arrivant discrtement en rtro, avec un complment grains et houblonn noble. Palais est lger, complexe pour 3.8% retrouve bien une base lager pils avec une belle rondeur et douceur mielleuse. Retrouve une note presque noisette et ct acacia. Grains concasss, fleuri et sec avec un lger ct pic du seigle. Pas trop dimpact du poivre.

3fourths (9274) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Sampled from a 1L bottle, 2007
Poured near the end of the bottle so the yeast was most likely heavy, but I dont mind since the yeast smelled and tasted fantastic. Nice soft funkiness in the nose, some sour and peppery basil/herb/spice aromas, the black pepper is certainly evident, and I pick up some lavendar floral scents and something resembling spiced berries and wood. Lightly tart flavor, tingling the tongue, then turning pasty while still remaining peppery all across the palate, start to finish. Even some grassiness in the finish as well. Good stuff. Weird beer and I like weird beer. 3.8

draft @ the brewery in 2009
heavily spiced, unkempt floral/soap character. soapy and messy. 3.4

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Overpriced ($17.99) bottle. Pours with a hazed golden body and a minimal bubbly white head that fades quickly. Aromas are tart and musty with notes of fruit (berries), honey, concord grapes, and saffron. Flavors of cork, bread, lactic acid, DMS, and just not entirely pleasant. Lightly herbal. Light carbonation. Odd finish.
