Bottle shared with McTapps. Some caramel with a bit of chocolate and malt. Thin in the middle with an even thinner finish. Bit below average.

Bottle from Douberd - many thanks! The beer pours out in a cloudy brown colour with no head and medium to thin body. Aroma of wheat and caramel. Taste of flowers, straw, honey, caramel, barley and cake. Sweet finish. Easy to drink but it definitely lacks some body and deepness - and character. This way it is just a little bit too thin and boring. jmgreenuk (9310) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from Lemmys, Leiden. Poured a hazy medium amber with a round white head. The aroma is yeast, rich citrus fruit and some vinous notes. The flavour is light acid yeast with a veggie watery light bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Smells better than it tastes.

Pours a brownish orange beer with a good white head. Smells gruit, minty. Dont like it. Tastes also like it. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture. Bosbouw (2899) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2013
Troebele caramelkleur met aardige kraag. Ruikt zoetig, beetje zweterig. Zoetzure smaak. Iets bitter op het eind Christos (5692) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a weizen glass. ABV 5%
Light brown with orange hue colour on the body, two fingers of thick head, light beige in colour. Very good retention, it left light lacing on the glass. Nice activity with lots of bubbles rising to the surface.
Aroma is full of spices, maybe a bit too much. Hints of white grapes as well.
Taste has a bit sourness on it but quickly fades away and what is left is a nice bitterness and again lots of spices and some light wheat. Bitterness has a good duration.
Overall an okay beer, drinkable.
Medium thin body, soft carbonation and little dryness on the palate
