tightslice (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma fruity esters, savory bread, bits of spiced ginger candy. Taste is crisp, lemony with savory herbal, ginger moments. Overall an excellent ale for the money ($5.99 USD).

trapped (3097) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy amber color with very small foamy whitish head that disappeared immediately, vanilla-citrus aroma, low carbonation, slightly watery vanilla flavored Belgian yeast taste, lomgish finish. Nice but not really great.

Pours cloudy pale straw color with white head. Doughy Belgian yeast aroma with some coriander and other spices. Wheat and dough flavors with some spices. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not bad for a $6/750 ml bottle.

Very light Belgian smell, wheat beer that is very slightly sour and hint of ginger...a bit more gingery than blue moon

JK (6095) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Cloudy gold color and a large white head. Lots of yeast in the flavor and the aroma and I was surprised that the beer is opaque. Lately sweet, some fruit esters, good flavor, feeling light overall Less flavorful than may unibroue beers

Thanks to southbierbro. Pours a brilliant slightly yellow with a pure white head. The smell is spice, coriander, citrus and sweet, light malt. The taste is spice, fruit, ending dry with some major sweetness. Light body, fine carbonation.

Erzengel (8626) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
Many thanks to John for sharing. Great floral fresh and yeasty-smooth nose. The beer starts very nice smooth, fresh, sweetish-malt, smooth yeastiness, spices and citrus. Clove, nice smooth bitterness. Fresh, easy to drink brew with still deepness.

notalush (5867) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2015
750 from TJ’s for 5.99 - turbid gold - nose is tripel-ish in character - some pear esters, orange peel, spicy phenolics, some crusty maltiness, dusty/earthy yeast - actually very pleasant in the nose - flavor is medium sweet, with a balancing tartness and spice - a touch of banana esters, tart apple and pear - carbonation is a little low, so the overall texture is a little flat, but overall a nicely done Belgian and great for the price.
