PeatyPete (1113) - - NOV 2, 2013
Straw yellow color with solid white head. Smell is citrus-like hops. Taste is a combination of the three kinds of hops used. Floral and citrus-like with a slight bitterness.

TET (3285) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2017
A golden beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma has strong perry and apple, hint of alcohol. Taste has perry, spicyness, some alcohol. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation. Simple and perry, too much of alcohol. Decent, anyway.

Ritzn (1994) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2017
Hazy golden with little white head. Aroma is wheat, straw, some late summer field, some shy fruit, some spices. Taste is harsh murky yeast, some strange unfresh sourness. Medium drinkable. A bit harsh. Unpleasant finish. Meh.

jfb (6984) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 (bottle) slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of pepper, barnacles and apple juice, with a light touch of physalis, lots of yeast, lime and some surprising brett. flavour is mostly bubble gum and cherry juice, slightly earthy, with a light sweetness, some fudge and a light-bitter slightly tannic finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation. surprisingly great!

SinH4 (6573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2017
Bottle. Clear pale golden color with white head. Aroma is citric, a touch bretty, dusty, estery, wheat, dough. Taste is estery, apricots, a bit dusty, dough, boozy. Oily mouthfeel with high carbonation. Everything I hate about Belgium in a bottle - still ok.

Zlotta (4152) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2017
Sampled from 0.75 l bottle, bottled in May 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy and a bit yeasty-spicy aroma of lemon peel, pineapple, fresh grass and traces of vanilla. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, grassy and slightly fruity taste of grains, lemon peel, pineapple and fresh grass, followed by a short, moderately bitter, very dry and slightly grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly astringent and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!
