kryon (3119) - Hsselby, - FEB 16, 2013
Pours hazy orange with high white foamy head Aromas of oranges, citrus, belgian yeast. A bit toned down. Would want more of an explosion. Very nice sweet fruity taste. A lot of oranges, citrus, apples. Medium bitter ending makes very enjoyable

beercalum (11) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle from Bottle Baron Edinburgh. Very highly carbonated, with a white lasting head. Aroma has notes of cloves and Belgian yest. Taste is classic belgian; dry, crisp, with some bitterness and hop flavours cutting through above a well-rounded malt base.

SkillsFactory (656) - ITALY - FEB 26, 2017
Dorata tendente al color albicocca, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca copiosa, pannosa, di ottima finezza e persistenza. Aroma di pera e banana matura, meno evidenti miele e chiodi di garofano, balsamica e fresca. Al palato si fondono la pera, il miele ed i chiodi di garofano ed una nota balsamica fresca che conduce verso un finale erbaceo fresco. Corpo poco più che leggero, ben carbonata, beverina come una Session beer, il cuore in etichetta ci sta davvero bene, fantastica.

Cloudy deep gold with a lively and good foam head and long lasting lace. Intense aroma of clove and orange peel. Bitter taste of pepper with alcohol strains. Dry on mouth. Long finish with bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (2768) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Light straw, cloudy with a fairly big white head. Nice notes of candy sugar, yeast, hard citrus. Incredibly bitter taste from aggressive hopping. Some posset and grapefruit. Finish is achingly bitter, thin body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Excellent stuff.

11.2 ounce bottle. Smells yeasty High carbonation, Big, fat, fluffy, white head. 8% alcohol is pretty well hidden. Taste of yeast and Belgium sugars. Astringent after bite on the tip of your tongue. Very good for the style.
