Lubiere (13995) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
2006 version. Golden coloured beer with an verflowing thick white head, lacing. Light crisp malts with herbal grassy notes. Light sweet malt in mouth, with biscuity notes, good hopping, medium bodied. A decent garde, but not as good as Gavroche. Bought at Joanette.

Partly cloudy dark blonde body with a large slowly diminishing white head. Aroma of cotton candy. Very sweet beer with bready malts and bland yeast. Somewhat saved by some crisp kind-of-noble hops. Drinkable but very simple sweet-fix like so many others. Bière SameOld SameOld. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2007
Hazy yellow color, huge white head. Malty bready aroma, yeast notes and some citric hops. Malty, somewhat spicy flavor. Quite mild finish. Alcohol is well hidden. thomat (3932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2007
Pale amber with a very thick white foam.
Hoppy with some fruit tones. Alcohol sweetness with a short, sweet finish.
Medium to full body. Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
Aroma: hoppy, yeasty, pears, fresh hops. Musty but refreshing. Fresh.
Ungstrup (37954) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Appearance: typical orange yellow lager but fluffy foam. Nice lacings.
Flavour: refreshing, hoppy, chemical, special, pears... Galia melon aftertaste.
Palate: delightful, even though it’s bubbly and acrid it is charming...
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and caramel and just a hint of spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and spices, as well as light notes of metal, leading to a dry bitter finish. Oakes (17867) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2002
Very yeasty in appearance, nose and palate. Light brown colour, dark malts and nuttiness hide underneath the yeast on the palate. Finishes long and dry. TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Well this has certainly fallen off! Rampant DMS and other flaws like flabby, husky malt and zero character renders this one unenjoyable for me. Used to love it, but then again that was almost eight years ago. TBone (17699) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Unfiltered ambered peach. Huge fluffy, sticky white foam. Fresh peppery nose crammed with grassy hops and straw. Buttery pale malts, coconut oil, phenols, and white grape undertones. Somewhat tangy and woody. Fluffy, expansive on the tongue. Starts rather tangy trailed by candied pale malts and light pepper. Subtle dried apricot twang is held up by long doughy, powdery malts and a delicate spicy hop kiss. Very grainily malty throughout. Finishes with a table grape tingle amid a honeyed pale malt and spicy hop composition. Lingering honey and earth notes. Wine geeks would be flabbergasted by this earthy, musty, vinous, malty farmhouse ale. (previous score in 2003: 8, 5, 9, 4, 17 = 4.3)
