mkel07 (5428) - Brisbane, - NOV 21, 2012
330ml can. Nice - a Belgian ale from a can. Thin wispy head and a vibrant deep orange colour. Strong rum like aroma with a similar flavour, almost like it has been aged in rum barrels.

Can on Kyoto-bound Shinkansen. Slightly sweet, tad yeasty. Lacking a bit of depth. Light bodied. Not much exciting.

Une trs belle bire la robe blonde, fine mousse. Nez lgant sur des notes levures, du pain frais, pointe malte. Bouche tout aussi agrable, de la rondeur, de la fracheur et de lquilibre. Un dlice sur les Sushis.

Leighton (19552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Can shared in W2 - many thanks to Daniel. Pours hazy gold with a slender, white head. The nose has notes of butter, phenol, pale bread. Light sweet flavor with some wheat, dough, ripening lemon, sourdough bread, hay. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more doughy aspect, lemon peel, wheat flakes, cereal, faint banana. Pretty simplistic, but not terrible.

mR_fr0g (10368) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle shared at Leightons place 09/05/2016. Many thanks yo Daniel for this one. Translucent golden yellow, murky yellow coloured pour with a small whit head. Aroma is pale doughy grains, apple and pears, stale grains. Flavour is composed of stale grains, airy cardboard airy carbonation. Wheat, stale. Palate is grainy, stale, highish carbonation, sweet and doughy.

The_Osprey (7137) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Can share at Leightons, picked up at The Oriental Supermarket. Hazy orange, opaque, small foamy white head. Aroma is a little buttery, wheat, celery. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is wheaty, thin, light buttery, touch of corn. Meh. Kind of thin and buttery. Below average.

petewhitley (531) - Nagoya, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2016
nuts, grass, citrus, banana, honey, golden, cloudy, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel. Beautifully nuanced aroma; pervasive honey, with notes of lemon, banana bread, nuts, on and on. Unfortunately the taste doesnt live up to the nose. Medium bodied, a bit sour, flat yeast. Thin, as though it has been watered down.

Hmm. Cloudy amber, absolutely no head. Aroma is savoury, odd. Flavours of peach and vegemite. Slightly unpleasant. Not to be bought again.

Dredd (844) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
Perhaps because I cant read Japanese I was caught out. Cant say I have ever had a cab conditioned beer as this was murky as all hell. Sweet aroma of butterscotch and flavour profile quite sweet with honey and ester notes.

willisread (2948) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Can from Le petit Louest. Pours a dirty, murky brown orange with a medium-sized head that disappears almost instantly. Light aromas of Belgian yeast with pear and peach mainly standing out and some very light funk. Taste is more pear. Body is thinner than water with zero malt noticeable. Fruit forward and sweet on the palate. Really not a good beer.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, citrus, vanilla and some hops. Taste is medium sweet. Not bad.
