DerGantzel (445) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2017
Golden appearance with a white head. High bitterness. A dry finish and lively carbonation. Not my favorite.

TychoJames (1448) - �rebro, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2017
Flaska 75 cl systembolaget. Disig orangegul kulör. Doft av hö, örter och humle. Frisk och brödig smak. Viss fruktighet med balanserad beska. Fuktig och frisk

ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2017
On top at the sovereign. Pours a golden color with a lacy white head. Notes of earth, green, tea, and hop. Nice beer.

4.1
Ysok02 (1827) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2017
Robe blonde, mousse crémeuse et abondante. Nez puissant sur le houblon, les agrumes confits, les écorces d’agrumes, sur un fond de céréales. Bouche tout en puissance et en amertume, bulle fine et amère et longue finale sur l’amertume. Une très belle bière tout en amertume.

4.3
hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle, 11C. Almost bright gold with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of the meadow, under-ripe nectarines, oranges, crackers. Light bodied, high carbonation is maybe a bit too high for me (and better - creamier - after a swirl). Fruity and bittersweet with crackers verging on biscuit, oranges, nectarines, the meadow. Some tropical bubblegum, a touch of menthol. Doesn’t come across as as bitter as XX and is confusingly both softer and more pungent. Second glass is barely hazier than the first - the sludgy sediment is very co-operative. Stunning.

3.7
NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2017
Gyllengul mot orange öl med ett kvardröjande vitt skum. Doften är typiskt belgiskt jästig med deg, hö, gräs och viss pepprighet. I smaken tillkommer citrustoner och ljust bröd.

4.2
Rubin77 (2581) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 9, 2017
F: huge, white, good retention. C: pale gold, light hazy. A: malty, grassy, herbal, oranges, lemon, floral, tonic water, bit of yeast. T: malty, grassy, oranges, grapefruit, floral, yeast, long lasting bitterness on the palate, apple, light soapy, medium body, medium carbonation, the bitterness is really nice in the way I like it, the XX was great for me and this XXX also, #1000 Belgium beer, 75cl bottle from Prik & Tik Dranken Marlou.

3.7
Capa (3437) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Light hazy golden with white foam on top. Powerful hop profile with some dry tea notes. Background honey and light cracker malt. Medium bodied with a lightly dry finish. Solid.

3.4
budedou (1046) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - APR 22, 2017
Hazy gold pour with a white head. Vanilla, warm spice and honey aroma. Flavours of vanilla, honey and apricot. Tasty.

3.1
OminouSC2 (898) - Mora, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017
Yellow color, huge white head. Gusher. Aromas of hay, floral hops, citrus, lemon peel, sour candy and yeast. Bitter taste of citrus, floral hops and yeast. Very bitter taste/finish. Not for me.
