VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - MAR 11, 2013
Presentation: Stubby 11.2 oz. brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Cloudy, pale gold color. Develops a two finger bright white head that goes down but remains all the way to the end. It leaves some great lacing. Smell: The scent is sweet, fruity, mainly banana. There’s some nice herbal and malt notes, as well as some yeast in the background. Taste: A fruit flavor is dominant. It has spice and herbal flavors that make for a very complex and appealing package. There’s alcohol and a tiny malt sweetness at the end, with some bitterness to balance everything out. Mouthfeel: It’s smooth, creamy and medium bodied. It has mildly high carbonation that’s not overwhelming but still present. Overall: Very drinkable and complex. It has a lot of flavors and scents, but also a simple sweetness, balanced perfectly by a hint of bitterness and an alcoholic character, that just make it a great beer.

Gehbe (297) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 20, 2016
Cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is dominated by yeasty notes, along with a bit of spice, zest and honey as well as some barnyard and vinegar notes. Fairly sour although sweetness still plays the top note, finishes with a light zesty bitterness. High carbonation, light body, slightly milky texture, very drinkable. Refreshing but too yeasty.

Keukeman (95) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2016
33l bottle at a terrace in Den Bosch, hazy blonde colour beer with thin soapy head. Genuine taste, not really special but tastes legit.

Syfher (335) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Very refreshing Abbey Ale. Really good. It’s maybe not the beer with the special taste you are looking for, but it has that "true taste" that will be enjoyed by all.

Maakun (4223) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy light golden with fluffy white head. Sweet grains, paper, soft yeast, lemon, weird metallic bitter notes, light nectarine, dough, sweet biscuits. Medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Decent beer, though the metallic finish is a bit disappointing.

Ysok02 (1112) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2016
Robe blonde, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez qui allie des notes de houblons, de malt et de fruits sur un fond de céréales. Bouche agréable, fruitée, équilibrée, souple, pas très longue mais raffraîchissante. Un bière de soif

Maracuja05 (796) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
[backlog] 05-05-16 / bottle in Brussels. Boring. Malty, medium sweet. Carbonated. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 1.75/5
