Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours golden with a slight haze and a rich and frothy white head leaving a neat lacework. Heavy Brett aroma, rough and leathery. Medium body, a very dry fruitiness, massive Brett, has a somewhat unfortunate chemical tang - probably from the Brett. Somewhat astringent, again massive leather. Sort of an Orval clone, just far from that beers sophistication. 230512 yespr (45710) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012

Poured from the tap at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Pours to a hazy, orange with a clear white head and great lacing. The aroma is strong on the front end. One smells that delicious Belgian yeastiness and herbs. The taste is a bit sour and coats the sides of the tongue, then yields to a nice malty back end.
Very nice brew. M_Jager (106) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Terrible!!! I hope it had gone off due to transport because this was appalling. I couldn’t even bring myself to finish it. deyholla (11721) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Bottle @ Big Star. Pours a hazy light orange with a gold hue and a bubbly white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a bit of light fruit and backing sweet grains and Belgian yeast. Flavor begins with strong citrus that has a slight bitter note and is backed by Belgian yeast and grains.

Cool Green Flash custom 12oz bottle pours out brilliantly clear copper with tall near frothy tan head. The aroma is a little rubbery mixed with spicy Belgian yeastiness as well as a mild wild yeasty tartness. The taste is a little tart, a little sour, a little rubbery band aid and a little bit of other stuff. The other stuff is like floral hops, bigger floral hop notes to midway and a good deal of earthy hops around the edges. Interest brew from one of my favorite breweries. finol (3423) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Pours hazy orange with a bit much of the off white fizz. Aromas are mild with a grainy caramel and pale malt Belgian character. The taste is smooth, grainy, and it has a traditional Belgian pale malt and yeast taste that works very well with the mild wet hay and flowery herb hops. The malt stands out like a good pale ale and has a light warming sense, although there us a nice floral fruity sense under the grain, maybe as much from the hops as the yeast. The head never does die out and the carbonation stays high for a while but gets low enough to take big gulps after a bit . There is a slightly oily hop kick in the finish but the carbonation cuts through and the semi sweet grain comes out in the long run with just a bit of bitterness. Very enjoyable and probably the best American Belgian pale I?ve had. Only set back is the fact it?s hard to get a sip through all the fizz at first. Hoppy, some Brett funk and maybe some wheat grain spice? all just one part of this great brew.
