niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
On cask at jdw, stone. Pours golden with a thin head. Apparently this tastes of kiwi but it was more like a grapefruit fruit beer. Nice but due to the sweetness was a bit sickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Draft. Pale yellow, clear, almost no head. Light fruitiness, very mild aroma - almost nothing (may have been served too cold). Not one Ill go back to.

Tmoney99 (13894) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate grass hop and tropical fruit aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I shared this with a freind.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours cloudy yellow/gold, 1-finger white head, gives way slowly with fine lacing. Nose is dusty malt, with loads of kiwifruit, mango, grapefruit, and loads of grassy notes. Flavours of lightly soapy bitterness, LOADS of grass, and some nice bitter melon and stonefruit notes. Creamy, understated, and deceptively complex. My ratings seem very high of late, am I drinking better beer, or just getting soft as time goes on. think its the former, as this is bloody marvelous!

Fra kran p Schouskjelleren, Oslo 18 Okt 11. Gylden. Litt uklar. Pent luftig skum som varer. Skummet fester seg til glasset. Flott, litt tungfruktig aroma. Smaken er rikt fruktig. Litt tung ogs den. Aprikos & rabarbra. Svakt trr ettersmak.

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml brown bottle. Pours a light lemony yellow. Some haze. Big white head. Thick clingy lacing. Nose has wheat notes, grass/hay like hops, hint of fruit - kiwi and winey green grapes. Taste has a wheaty malt backbone, lots of grassy hops, tropical fruit and late citrus. Dry and wheaty end with lingering grassy hops in the throat. Light bodied, tight beaded carbonation. Overall this a nice crisp pale ale with a deep nose and nice refreshing bitterness. I am now a fan of Nelson Sauvin hops. A very nice surprise for a random grab at the bottle shop. I can only imagine the amazement this beer would provide from being drank in the mid summer heat.

From bottle. Light golden with white head. Aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit, slightly grassy. Taste is similar. Refreshing on the palate with a bitter finish. Very tasty

reebtogi (5932) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml bottle pours a light golden color with about 2 fingers of white head that settles slowly to some really nice lacing on side of glass. Aroma is grassy with a hint of fruit. Taste has a pronounced bitterness up front mellowing to a fruity and malty sweetness and a hint of citrus. A very nicely done pale ale, but color is a little on the light side of pale.
