Klares, sattes Gold, hoher cremiger Schaum. In der Nase Orange und Koriander, wie ein Wit. Im Trunk erfrischend, deutlich Orange, dann alkoholischer werdend. Hinten würzig, feiner Abgang. Sehr lecker.

Pours a great orange like hazy gold with a very lively white head. Aroma is apricot, orange, banana, yeast, hay, honey. Taste is very similar, notes of apricot, yeast, stronger honey than in the nose, citrus, and a nice touch of zest bitter at the end. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2017

It was great to finally be able to have an opportunity to compare this to someone's homebrewed clone. It stood up well which makes me wish I'd been able to try the original. This is one of those great beers that everyone should try fresh at least once in their lives.
Aroma / Appearance - The semitransparent body glows and glimmers under a pure white head. Bananas, yeast, and fresh esters brighten the air and spirit. A vibrant feel could not possibly have survived ten years without fading to a ghost of its former self.
Flavor / Palate - Honey, almonds, and bananas sweeten the palate. The transition of fresh daisies carries to a robust conclusion. Stone is clearly still on top of their game as this affordable bomber demonstrates. Hopefully I can get my hands on a few more re-releases from these earlier entries. They will certainly be on the top of my list in future shopping trips.
Pours hazy light gold with a fat, lumpy, foamy white head. Aroma is yeast, coriander and a bit of orange peel. Taste follows and adds some lemon and a bangin' closing hop bitterness over a grain backbone. Refreshing golden Belgian IPA.

Frothy white head stayed on an effervescent, translucent, copper coloured body.
Aroma of peach, nectarine, haribos & flora.
Medium bodied, soft & airy on the palate - clean & very dry dry on the back.
This beer is so dry with tastes of bitter orange, lemon, pith & lots of spices
