RSRIZZO (1972) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2011
750 mL bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 40. Color is a light golden with a slight haze. Carbonation is light with a frothy white head. Aroma is a nice fruity Belgian yeast scent. It has a lighter medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor has a little gain and sweet corn followed by a touch of hop spice and citrus then a mild bitterness. After taste is crisp with the citrus and spice lingering with just a hint of alcohol. Overall is a very good brew, well balanced with good flavors and very easy drinking.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
transparent gold, thick, puffy white head. Heavy citrus, solvent, corn/tortilla grains. Flavor is overly sweet, old hops, washed out, orange skins and plastic. Fizzy body, overcarbed, underattenuated.

Sammy (11498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2011
Wonderful marriage of blonde and hoppiness. Mild hop aromas, rich nose of malt. Golden blond with lots of off-white head. Just magnificient drinkability, the hot weather and the food made the moment perfect. Above average mouthfeel.
