On tap at Vice et Versa, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is lightly (and unusually) fruity for a helles, with some citrus zest, Belgian yeast, and cereal. Flavour sort of reminds of lychee, lemon and cereal, and then shitloads of banana become extremely apparent after a few sips. Finishes banana-like and lemony. Unusual for the style – certainly not offensive. Nice and refreshing. HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
July 8, 2011 - with blankboy, JoeMcPhee, jerc and mabel. 750ml bottle c/o J&K. Cloudy/murky light gold with a dminishing frothy white head. Terrific aroma, honey sweetness, ripe tree fruit, light spiciness with some lemon - lemon saison. Taste is not anywhere as sweet - in fact it’s sour and a bit metallic; there’s some pungent dry floral bitterness, not much alcohol - something seems a bit not right with this to me. Thick, average carbonation, definitely dryly acidic; not one of Fred’s best, but interesting. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at Vices et Versa - Montreal, QC. A quiet gentle grain aroma, piqued with minerals and a bit of distant yeast. Flavors were solid, but the snappy golden brightness was somehow missing. Relatively refreshing and clean, but lacking a certain ambiance that made it sparkle and crack. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2012
transparent gold, spotty white head with heavy lacing. Nose is floral and honey sweet, lightly sugary. Flavor is heavy honey sugar, light cardboard, soft grain and corn finish, lightly biting. GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at Of Love & Regret. Pours full haze orange to good. Thick pillowy white foam. Excellent lacing. Nose is floral, orange blossom, lemon sorbet. Taste is powdery, tangy, sugary, mild spices. Actually quite tannic with major saltiness. Could be improved. Not really heavy biscuit like a Helles but refreshing, floral. Not bad.
