33cl bottle from In de Vrede Shop - a glorious looking pour, the one consistency with this stable, this one a misty orange. Very appealing nose, got some spicy banana in there, a bit of orangey citrus too. Taste has a little tang, again citrusy this time lemons come through. It’s very nice, but not a patch on its two big brothers.

330ml bottle from RusBeerShop in Moscow. Pours hazy honey yellow with a medium-sized white head with some minor lacing. Aroma is honey, citrus, spice. Taste is citrus (lemons), coriander, light spiciness. Really decent, shame about the price.

jamestulloch (4417) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2018
Bottle from Salt Horse. Hazy pale golden body with a thin off-white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of salted bread, herbs, green banana and dried grass. Flavour of white pepper and a spicy, earthy finish. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Musty and flavoursome. Very good.

GTAEgeek (2497) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2018
33 cL bottle. Pours a clear, fizzy yellow, with a big, fluffy, beige head. The aroma is lemon zest, pine, coriander, rye, and white pepper. Not very sweet, with a sharp bitterness. Light to medium body, with a fairly hard, acidic mouthfeel. This was good, but not great.

Appearance: Pours hazy yellow with a lasting rich creamy white head, with good lacing and lots of dead yeast clumps. 5/5 Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit, citric, malts, herbs, yeast and hops. 8/10 Taste: Malt, herbs, spice, coriander, yeast, citric, citrus and grapefruit. Solid bitterness and dry hops at the beginning, followed by refreshing floral honey notes and fruit sweetness, not lasting but impressive. Dry and moderate bitter hoppy spicy finish. 9/10 Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, creamy and smooth, moderate carbonated. 5/5 Overall 16/20

На удивление пиво абсолютно не имеет пены. Аромат медовый и слегка кислый. Напиток имеет большой осадок. Вкус имеет ярко медовый вкус также ощущается хмель и легкая фруктовая горечь. Послевкусие медовое но через 10 секунд оно полностью растворяются. В целом весьма ценный экземпляр.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (407) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - NOV 27, 2017
Subtle for a blonde, the right balance of fruit flavours and not too bubbly or bananary. Only happened to have a few sips of my friends glass as I was the designated driver. Picked up six bottles of Westvleteren 12 though, so it was worth the journey. Time to keep my eyes peeled for the 8 :D - all in all, a great beer but not really my thing.

Butelka. Po otwarciu gashing. Aromat drożdżowy, bananowy, nieprzyjemny. Kiepski wygląd - pełno syfu pływa w środku. W smaku wodniste, bardzo nagazowane, z nieprzyjemnym finiszem, zalegającą goryczką. Gdyby nie cena to bym wylał.
