Muggus69 (2521) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2017
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 (442) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (4314) - 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.

MrW (696) - 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.

commonshawn (1266) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle in Ghent with commonmac, samuelito, willyp, and rosskyle. Hazy light gold with medium microbubble head. Citrus, yeast, banana nose. Sharp bite, heavy yeast, full body. Almost like a wheat beer take on a Belgian beer. Very much my style. Delicious.
