STL_Drew (153) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2013
One finger head, white, mostly diminishing, light golden color, cloudy, slight malt with fruity aroma, oily mouthfeel, almost an orange zest flavor. Overall it is a tasty beer. A little on the sweet side.

(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. strange aroma of green bell peppers, brown sugar and lime juice, slightly perfumed, with a touch of sourdough and thyme. flavour is mostly pale malts and stale black tea, rather leafy, with some more lemons, pizza dough, mouldy peaches and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. just ok.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Just love his beer. Refreshing, yet complex, this beer satisfies most moods.

Cloudy lemon yellow with no head and a lot of particulate matter. Strong aroma of something I couldn't place, similarly strong flavor. And then my husband said "I can really taste the nutmeg" and I was like Ohhhh, yeah, that's definitely nutmeg. It's all you can taste, and it leaves a tingle in the mouth. It's an interesting beer.

Alebarasi (147) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2017
Hazy golden yellow color with a short lasting white head and a lot of yeast particles. Medium body, soft carbonation, no lacing. Floral aroma of citruses and their zest, coriander, honey, wheat, lychee, tropical fruits, bubblegum, yeast and cider-like aromas. Kind of a bland taste of oranges, sparkling wine, wheat, straw and herbs. Notable tartness. A bit watery - soda-alike brew. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

Opaque golden yellow, short lasting whit foam head. Nice citrus aroma and crisp citrus taste. Nice oes shared with Han. (Velp 201709)

p0urmeac0ld0ne (198) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 22, 2017
intense, weird, experimental white beer. floral, fruity, almost perfumy on the nose, and a bizarre light citrus zing on the palate. texture is unusual and the taste is far more complex than i can construe using the descriptors available here lol. piles of belgian-looking yeast floating around which is almost impossible not to disturb. good luck not getting it in the glass! bizarre drink, glad i tried it, unsure if i would buy another but would be interested in seeing a draught version.

Bottle. Pale yellow hazy body with white head. Aroma is malty with some citrus in the background. Taste is malts Wheat. Aftertaste is malts.

geologyguy (1645) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Smell is sort of like a solvent but light and not harsh....lemony I guess....quite pungent though...smooth and mostly malty taste...low carbonation....at flying saucer for trivia with crew....team welcome to thunderdome

theprof (1132) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle. Aroma pine and spice with lemon notes. Pours pale yellow bubbly thin top. Taste goes medium sweet to sour. Some initial fizz on the tongue from spice but otherwise light and bland.
