Bottled at SBWF. Clear golden, small head. Concentrated aroma of buckwheat, pear and grass. Mid sweet with light-medium body and dense mouthfeel. Grass, pear and hay. Long bitter finish. Garrold (5170) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
550ml bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thin, dense, creamy, lasting, white head. Thick, sweet, grainy malt. Lemon. Lemongrass. A little funkiness. Taste is malty sweet. The Sorachi is fully present. Light bitterness. Palate is rich, and full. Lots of soft carbonation. Light oiliness. Finishes soft bitter. Dry close. Lots going on. Very tasty. erickok (6034) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Herbal hops, biscuity, English, very original actually. Medium (and therefore more than expected) bitter, herbal spicy but not Belgian, more from the malt combo is my expectation. Drinks very well, even with this different taste profile. Bit tea like even, with tanines. Nice to try. (On tap at La Fine Mouse) daje (4341) - NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet honey aroma with weak fruity hops. Taste is grainy, light metallic with vanilla notes, again very subtle hopped, light bitterness, short malty and sweet finish. Quite boring and disappointing from start to finish.

0.5l bottle. Looks good this with a big white lasting and slightly lacing head over a mildly cloudy and golden looking body. Smells like a mixed of a herb spiced and a wit. Lots of wheat sweetness and coriander but also some peppery lemongrass and metal. Not horrible at all, but a bit confusing perhaps. I like it. What kind of beverage is this really? Doesn’t taste bad at all. A bit fruity and pilsner-melon in the taste. Traces of alcohol and lots of pale malts. Quite pleasant to drink really relly. Ends in a soft grassy hoppy finish, some sweetness also here. Yeah, I like this even if I have no idea what I’m drinking. 12.04.2014

500ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. No head. Sweet, yeasty, sour aroma. Sourish, fruity, sweet taste. Sourish caramelly yeast in aftertaste. That’s just bad. maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
Tap at GJBF Osaka 2014. Sorachi Ace very apparent in nose; seems slick and sweet. A rounded malt sweetness in initial. The Sorachi gives it a strong hop tea note. Hopping runs right down the middle of the tongue. Deep, solid, and fruity. Quite good. Ngejo (979) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, orange, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, soft carbonation, & bitter finish. Finn (7513) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
Flaske 550ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Kniplingslacing. God aroma av pepper & ingefær. Smaken har det samme sammensatte krydderpreget. 0 kullsyre. Bra - men blir litt endimensjonal. Tungdrikkelig etter hvert. Patrickctenchi (6548) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours slightly hazed gold with a tall, off-white head.
Aroma of sweet fruit, yeast.
Flavour is pils, banana, grass...a bit of peppery spice...
Very smooth, grassy bittering.
