3.1
Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 23, 2017
Praticamente un dolcione, un succo di frutta, troppo zuccherino. Non invitante al naso. Abbastanza gradevole, ma niente di che. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fkoolen (1185) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2017 Bottle at home. Slightly cloudy golden, slim but stable offwhite head. Candied light funky lambiek notes, lightly acidic, sweet peach and malty. Medium body and carbonation. Balanced in terms of the style, but too sweet for my taste.

3.4
Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - APR 20, 2017
Bottle, 375 ml, from Gem Shop, Zagreb. Shared with JFK10000. Pours orange, small, white head. Fruity, apples, some brown sugar, sweet, light sourish. Medium bodied. Not bad, but still bit too sugary for my taste.

artyom (1109) - Osijek, CROATIA - APR 8, 2017
0.375l bottle. Light amber color with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is fruity with apples, sugary and little bit funky. Taste is sweet with some sourness in the finish along the sweetness. Overall it’s interesting beer.

3.3
labeerinthum (835) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 27, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso va verso il floreale. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta e si fa ricordare per il pizzo finale. Le bollicine sono fini e la carbonazione è bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Anche qui le bollicine sono fini, con carbonazione media e persistente. Il colore è giallo ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio in equilibrio con l’amaro medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevolissimo. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è felpato, pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. Al palato arrivano impressioni di miele, cereali, erbe e fiori

3.2
The_Osprey (7890) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
March 2017 - Keg at Le Trappiste, Bruges as ’Timmermans Faro’, 4%. Amber orange, translucent, still, foamy off-white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is sugar syrup, pineapple chunks in syrup, slightly metallic. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is again syrupy, thin apple liqueur, short finish. A very simple, sugary beer but one that didn’t jar too much. Maybe one of the rare examples of keg cold-fizz helping a beer. Wouldn’t approach a bottle of this one for that reason. (3.2)

3.2
BRW (2714) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017

3.4
tommann (3716) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours dark orange brown with a medium head. Aroma is light sour funk and candy sugar. Taste has candy sugars to start and a sweet and sour barnyard finish. Some apple on the finish.

3.2
Beerhunter111 (20362) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
37.5cl corked bottle. Pours clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of mild sourish fruits, wood, stone fruits, sweet fruits. Taste of sweet stone fruits, apricot, some pineapple, a bit fry fruits, okay!

Ferris (15020) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle - Light sweet apple and white grape. Clear gold with a decent white head. Apple juice, no acidity and some light tea leaf. There is a touch of acidic bite on the throat, but no real complexity or funk.
