3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity aroma, hints of banana, pours golden orange. I normally don’t get into these but this was good. Lingering fruity flavours and a lift palette. Murray’s are doing some great work.
Golden and bright, has a plasticy nose, esters but not going in any one direction. Sweet, sugar apples, candy floss, plastic, basically it has some complexity but none of the elements are actually positive. beerplace (2043) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
330ml bottle at Matt’s. Aroma is hoppy, but quite rough. Same story with taste. Meh. fiulijn (21264) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Tasting at Matt’smcberko (18979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Dark blond color, clean. Some aroma of vegetables, spices and honey, very mild. Boozy and loaded with vegetable notes, unpleasant.
330mL bottle, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of perfumey notes, candied sugar, banana, Belgian yeast, and bubblegum. Flavour is messy and harsh, with banana, bubblegum and Belgian yeast. Harsh alcoholic mess on the finish. Very yeasty, incoherent and just not good overall.

Pours a thin golden colour with minimal head. Aroma of lemons, banana and sugar. Flavour full of bananas. Enjoyable fruity grand cru but lacking in complexity.

Deep golden pour with a somewhat absent head. Aromas of hay and bubblegum. The taste has an overarching bubblegum sweetness but with a nice crisp underlying dryness, if that makes any sense. Medium bodied and spicy but the carbonation is a bit underdone. Big 8.8% booze is very well hidden. Well executed, if not overly complex, belgian interpretation that would benefit from stronger carbonation. jmgreenuk (10004) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is bubblegum yeast, dry malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth yeast citrus biscuit malt, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I think these guys could show the Belgians a thing or two!

Murky golden colour, white head. Bit dusty aroma, orange lemonade, raisins. Quite sweet flavour, raisins, madeira, malts. Fizzy. Sweet finish, raisins. Feels old, lacks a readable date though. ansjelaah (1747) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
(from 33cL bottle shared @ a weekly tasting, Oirschot)
Bottle @ benzai with dutchdrebus. Orange color with no head. Smells old mann parfume, muf, musty, dusty. Tastes toffee, musty, caramel. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2014
on tap at the brewpub in bob’s farm. pale golden with a thin but lasting head; good yeast character in the aroma, some earthy spice; grassy hop character with plenty of warming alcohol showing even though it was served quite cold. one of the better australian belgian interpretations
