750ml bottle. Pours a golden orange with a large, white head. Aroma is a zesty lemon, lemon zest, citrus, peach, a lot of fruitiness. Some spiciness. Large amounts of stone fruit. Taste is citrusy, peachy with a lot of stone fruit. Some yeasty marzipan and spiciness. Quite fruity. Very drinkable. A bit of alcohol comes through at times, but not enough to bother you. Palate is quite stiff with quite a bit of carbonation which is good as it supports the fruitiness and zest. BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Brussles bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head and nice lacing. Pretty big aroma that actually reminds me of a big saison with a hint of hops. Very plesant flavor that trends towards the sweeter side but also a little spice and booze like a tripel. Pretty good. CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
(75cl bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for ~$13. Overflowed with foam after removing the cap. Pours a large, frothy white head atop a clouded, sediment-filled amber body. Nose of vanilla, coriander and yeast. A nice alcohol burn, smooth, strong presence of citrus and earthy base. Very good. RuneStumo (2685) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013

Bottle shared by Ken at CBC tasting. It pours cloudy golden with a thick white head. The nose is earth, sherbet, pear, apple, melon, hay and icing sugar. The taste is hay, earth, icing sugar. sherbet, decent bitterness, toast, pear, melon, alcohol warmth, mustiness and dirt. Medium-full body, high carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not a whole lot to it and perhaps a touch sweet. Still not bad.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Light haze on this gold beer. Mahooosive off white head. Palate is light, fluffy and a little dry. Light bitterish yeast. Touch of caraway nutty pale malt. Mild dried fruits. Finishes bitter. Interesting and quite drinkable.
Bottle split at Craft Clerko, big thanks to Ken, 26/06/13.
Hazed yellow blonde with a white covering, some floaties on show but they had pretty faces so I kept the score as a 4!
Nose is grass, wheaten notes, lemon rind, grain, sugars, touch of booze, bitter orange.
Taste comprises bitter orange, lemon rind, light yeast, bready malt, grass, warming booze.
Full bodied, moderate carbonation, ever warming alcohol in the finish.
Ok beer, not a lot of depth and the booze was on the harsh side. Glad to be sharing a small pour and not nursing a bottle between 2 ! jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle shared by the legendary Madmitch76. The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. The nose is wild yeast, hints of brett, melon. Belgian yeast sweetness. Some brioche. The taste is more sweet breadiness, some cantaloupe. Apple butter. Mild wild yeast notes. Strong sweet syrup. Full body, soft carbonation. Overall, just a bit sweet and heavy for me on this occasion. OK. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
