Theydon_Bois (20136) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow tasting, thanks to (sorry forgotten who), 20/01/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that clears to a film. Nose is pale malt, light grass, herbal notes. Taste comprises orange pith, sugars, light spice, malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Average.

330ml bottle BB 30 Jun 2019. Slightly hazy golden amber with small white head. Aromas of apricot, caramel, herbs, grains. Taste has pear, apricot, melon, floral & herbal notes, honey. Medium bodied, disguises the 8% ABV very well, not too sweet. Really like this.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Hazy pale gold body, only a small head hangs around. Sort of rustic aroma - hay, freshly cut dry meadow, vanilla & clove, dried apricot & sultana. Full body, verging on full, carbonation somewhat subdued for the style leaving it a touch flabby. Once again those rustic flavours cut through - cereal husk, hay barn, old crackers, sultana, apricot, bruised apple, a slight almost Sauternes/Botrytis dessert wine character emerges too. Reasonable sweet overall. A fascinating brew!

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Blonde tirant sur l'amertume, manquant ce je ne sais quoi qui aurait pu la rendre plus complexe. Puissante et aromatique.

DijkBier (480) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2017
Bottel in Antwerp pours golden with nice white head; good retention. Malty (3 grains) and very fruity nose, yellow fruits, banana, citrus. Taste also very fruity, banana; over medium sweet and light bitter. Some people will find it too sweet, but I do like it.

txspartan (1085) - Berchem, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2017
Malty sweet aroma. Marzipan and bitter hops flavour. Powdery texture. Slight alcohol burn.

Grzesiek79 (4359) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Many thanks for this beer to mrs Eva from Bar Expert Polska. Piana srednia jak na belga ale trwala do końca. Mocna bananowo morelowa barwa metniste bardzo, drozdzowy zapach. Smak slodowy, ulozony suszone morele, pomarancze i mus bananowy. Fajne treściwe, alkohol nie wyczuwalny i do tego wyraźnie chmielne piwo. Skromna etykieta ale odważne w smaku i treściwe jest to piwo. Warto było czekac na piwo z tak dalekiej podrozy.

budedou (1004) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAY 4, 2017
Pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, light fruity, little spice. Flavor is malt, yeast, fruit, pear, spice. Medium body, lively carbonation, some warming alcohol

Sven1973 (509) - GERMANY - APR 17, 2017
Flasche in einem Restaurant in Brüssel Bernstein, Trüb, fester Schaum Hopfen, Zitrus (leicht), etwas Getreide Grapefruit im Hintergrund, Hopfen aber nicht bitter, Apfel, Hefe (Nachtrag) okay Not super

MrW (703) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle in a resto somewhere near Ypres. Aroma has sweet banana, citrus fruits. Pours light misty goldblond with a stable white head, lively sparkling. Fruit, flowers, peach, coriander, a bit bread in the taste.

MAGICuenca91 (82) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 25, 2017
Tomada en copa a partir de botella de 33 cl. Aroma afrutado y agradable. Apariencia color ambarino con corona de espuma blanca espesa pero no duradera. Sabor afrutado que recuerda a melocotón o cítricos, cuerpo medio-alto y un paladar similar.
