ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a rather hazy body the colored of washed out gold and capped with a small, fine, white head. Smell: Valeir displays a well-spiced nose from the very get-go, along with modest notes of crispy-crusted bread, sliced orchard apples, lemon peels, and meadow flowers. Taste: Lightly bready, lightly sweet maltiness with a touch of graininess to it. Little pinch of zested lemon, just enough to add a bit of bright citrus character. The lemon eventually gives way to a taste of apples, which soon gives way to a piquant spiciness akin to anise or even fennel. Slight floral accents perk up now and again. Moderate amount of carbonation on the spicy, drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Active, medium-high carbonation provides more than a bit of tingle for the tongue. Drinkability: It was a good BPA. Valeir brings some spice, some malt, some fruit and a light effervescence together for an easy drinking beer.

courtesy of Doeschi - hazy dark blond beer under a persistent white foam; yeasty and fruity aroma (pear and apple); full-bodied and oily; some sweetness and pretty tasty; a hint of acidity and a solid bitterness; very long yeasty and fruity hoppy finish - pretty nice

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle at home, from Glouglouburp, served in my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours cloudy deep orange with a greenish cast. Thick white head that laces well. Nose is green apple, fresh bread, estery with some barnyard and hay. Very gentle in the nose. Flavours are round and creamy - almost brioche-like in texture, and the low hop bitterness is a pleasant surprise. Nice barnyardy fruit, cream, and hay, with a long, creamy, and lightly spicy finish. I could drink this all day!

From bottle at Moskus in Trondheim with UKM-people 28.06.16. Unclear peach. Persistent white head and lacing. Fruity aroma and taste, with pale malt, succade and orange marmalade. Dry and very refreshing!

bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste. Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!
