gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a steady white fine mousse head. Peach yoghurt aroma, citrus peel, lime juice. Interesting body that holds the middle between sourness and bitterness, making it all very easy to drink. Dry, tart finish. Citrus taste, a bit of solvent alike flavours (poster paint and bee wax) as well. Nice & fresh, quite drinkeable.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Surprisingly, I really enjoy this. Bottle to oversized tulip, straw golden with full white head. Nose is bright citrus and a little sweetness balanced by a slight funky tartness. A little bubble gum note paired with funky straw and grassiness. Flavor is tart, front, middle, and back. Starts with bright citrus and lemon peel and moves into a slight sweetness and finishes tart like a candy. Its really a great beer and surprised me, as Im not a sour pale ale kinda guy.

Funky, hoppy, tart with a nice bretty pineapple character, somewhat like Orval on steroids, this beer is absolutely amazing and gets better every time I try it again.
