375 ml corked bottle from Bevmo. Pours a rich unfiltered golden color with a huge white head that fades very slowly. Aroma is strong with notes of yeast, sour grapes, breads, and grass. Flavor is understated compared to the aroma. There is a complex mellowness to this concoction that is mostly sweet with notes of wheat, almonds, biscuit, and pears. Hops were well embedded and showed only toward the finish. Mouthfeel was very full, smooth, and silky. Finish was long, hoppy, dry and semi-sweet. Overall: this is a beer that I would drink at any occasion. cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Hazy golden with beautiful, booming and persistent white head; nice lacing on the glass. Wheaty and yeasty scents hit the olfactory glands as well as citrus and green apples. The flavor is similar with a soury/crispy juicy citrus- fruit flavor, while surrounded by wheaty and yeasty backdrop. Very drinkable and refreshing for a hot day.

Rating 700. Bottle, from Fin. Beautiful honey gold pour, full of micro bubbles like champagne, gorgeous cap of fine buttercream bubbles, slowly settling in craters and leaving a picture-perfect ring of lace. A fresh, evocative aroma: makes me think of fishing for trout in the meadow streams of southeast Minnesota. It’s all there: the bright clean grass smell, the rich fresh-tilled earth of the nearby fields, the peppery watercress growing in the streams, the wild weed and mint on the banks. Flavor is a deeply satisfying soft pastry malt character, sweet for a moment, and then a peppery, crisp finish. An elegant beer I would be very happy drinking just about any day, but worthy of a special occation too. What a fantastic beer--thanks Fin! scanovajr (675) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled @ Delirium, Brussels. An amber beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is sweet, malty, dry and spicy. Hoppy and well balanced. xibalba89 (147) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a good head that dissapates rather quickly. The aroma is refreshing, with strong citrus and banana notes. First sip is somewhat metallic and dry. It doesn’t really distinguish itself... the finish doesn’t really have much flavor, just a sensation, so I’m not terribly impressed.
A good, standard beer, but nothing to get too excited about.

Poured a glorious, cloudy orange color with this massive white head that just sets up camp and refuses to leave. Huge orange citrus aroma, with coriander, light cinnamon and other spices just permeating over the top of the glass. The flavor is much the same. Alot of huge spicy flavors. Cinnamon and orange just blend together to formulate the body of this brew. Nice little spicy finish, and left just the slightest sweetness in the aftertaste. Just well balanced and kick ass in every way. What a solid representation of this style. stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Bright yellow. Slight orangish aroma. Good fluffy white head. Light, mild taste. Dullying sweetness. Drying. Not refreshing. Graze (4) - holland, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2007 does not count
Pours a cloudy light orangish-yellow. Huge lasting white head with moderate lacing. A yeasty aroma with hints of banana. Taste was very yeasty and breadlike with a bit citrus and spice on the back end. Over all a very crisp and refreshing beer. jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2007
Big white head. Hazy, orange with bits of yeast floating around and about. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. It is fruity, a bit spicy, yeasty and sweet in taste but there is also a nice bitter lingering feel in the finnish. The brew feels very soft in your mouth, almost oily. I like that. Thumbs up! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 750 ml @ Coles Buffalo NY. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color. Fruity sweet aroma. Very carbonated. Missed some of the complexity in the beginning. Much better as it warmed up. Peppery, spicy & quite good 6-4-7-4-15=3.6
