Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Paid only EUR 1 as it was past date. Nice orange body with thinnest of head. Sour, hoppy and grassy nose. Taste of grass, malts and some caramel. Lots of spices. With sourness in the finish. Nice one.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Pepper corn ...perfume ..spice and floral hops sing and dance in the aromas.,,,It looks like a text book yeasty golden Belgian Ale. ...Malty ,nutty and very dry on the flavour range.Spicy hoppiness ,leading to estery fruit apple is what I get.Citrusy textures all over the glass. Drinkable and flavoursome.

heavy (2904) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2009
15/03 0.75 bottle from beershop.hr, shared with Doggythedog. It poured slightly murky golden body with medium sized head. Some banana yeast in aroma, but also somewhat malty. Quite ordinary, but pleasant and cloying. Flavor was sourish, from fresh hops, but generally sweet, honey malty and fruity from the yeast. A bit watery, thinner bodied. Finish is therefore shorter, but not bad, following the flavor. A good beer, but so typical that was even boring.

Marko (6088) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 15, 2009
0.75l bottle (6.3%, 14 °) from the Croatian Beershop shared with heavy. Poured a hazy golden body with lively carbonation and a big fluffy white head that went away slowly. The nose is malty, soapy with some flowery hop. Pleasant enough. The taste is ok but too light and ordinary. Hop bitterness up front, lemony. some grainy, honeyish maltiness but it’s light. Just a slightly stronger golden ale that happens to be Belgian.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Poured bright gold with a slight haze and a large frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of bready malts with mild notes of grassy/floral hops, lemon zest, pepper, pears and coriander. Flavor was of bready malts (also) with a very mild bitterness, tangy lemon zest, dry grape skins, light notes of orange citrus, herb-like/parsley notes and a lightly spiced/rustic finish. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a somewhat watery texture and a average finish. A little overall for me (which I also found with the La Gauloise Ambree).

Hazy golden-amber body with nice sediment, small but delicious head. Aroma of citrus, apple and coriander, some malt , a little hop perfume. Sourish taste of fruits, apple and orange, characteristic coriander flavor. Medium body with malt, a minimal caramel. Sourish aftertaste.

Bottel, 033. Beautiful gold colour with white head that quickly dissipated to a thin layer. Mainly malt aroma with hints of apple, orange, citrus and faint vanilla. More fruit on the tongue with citrus

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a light golden amber color. Aromas of citrus/coriander/some hops. I not big a beers with coriander like tastes. Probably a good beer just not my cup of beer. Almost like a Belgian Wit with a bite.

3.2
LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 27, 2008
Bottiglia da 33cl da Fusari; versa colore oro intenso/ambrato chiaro con buona schiuma cremosa. L’aroma è un po’ vago, disteso, caramelloso; nel sapore si manifesta una nota di confettura (prugne?) sovrabbondante, che non riesce ad essere intaccata dalla (ingenerosa) luppolatura. Tutto sommato un prodotto di discreto carattere, con qualche difetto ma non generico o eccessivamente banale (come invece mi aspettavo). Un succo di frutta piacevolissimo.
