Bottle 237/480. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head. Smells of coriander, grassy, some light wheaty hints. Tastes of bubblegum, clove, spice, earthy, coriander with a dry finish. Enjoyable. andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2010
Hazy yellow with a bubbly one fingerer head that leaves minimal lazing behind. Aroma is typical for the style, yeasty, slightly spicy and fruity with light grainy notes. Flavor starts sweetish fruity and yeasty with slightly sharp alcohol touch. Ends on a warming slightly spicy and grainy note. Medium bodied and slightly sharp on the tongue (alcohol + carbonation.) Fairly clean and nice atempt at the style, very ordinary though. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle with green wax thanks to ericandersnavy. The look is clear, yellow, and has an ok white head. The smell is grains, malts, yeast, fruits, and spice. The taste is yeast, fruits, grains, and malts. Capa (3395) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2010

Cask at M&V. Okay, so I’ve had this on draft but didn’t rate. That bing said, my memory of this beer is nothing like the cask experience. Pours a murky golden with a grayish green tint and a huge sticky grayish white head that laces the glass incredibly for a cask pour. Big banana clove, tons of spice, light wheat, and a huge bubblegum blast and some hop bittering at the end. God damn amazing nose! Wooooo! Creamy smooth body with amazing carb for a cask beer. Clove, cinnamon, vanilla, grassy hops, banana, Belgium yeastiness...so good. Just finished and I’m going to have a second! WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. I think this beer officially has the longest name of any beer in the database. Pours golden with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet, taste is sweet and light. Like a belgian golden a bit to overly bittered.
