BB 10/02/11. Overly generous three-plus finger white head with staying power, foam lace and well carbonated. This beer surprized me with a light bronze colour and distinctive lime-green hue, a little on the cloudy side. Smell of yeast, wet grass, mild hops. Taste was more yeast initially, mild bitterness, earthy finish; with air, a banana scent emerged and a drier, malty finish. Not bad overall, mouthfeel was very much like a euro lager, good refreshment value but not overly complicated. A bit of honey but without the associated sweetness. I did find this beer a bit on the gassy side but well worth trying, thanks Jan for picking this up for me at the LCBO.

I had this at Chaucer's Pub, in London, ON- Labeled "Margriet"- A clouded pale yellow pour, with a frothy and long lived white cap. Good lace. Nose is of pears, other tropical fruit, candy, hops, spicy floral notes. This is also quite perfumey in a way that seems artificial, and by the aroma I suspected that this would be overly sweet. However, upon tasting, this is actually quite dry. Lots of fruit, mainly apple and pear, meet up with spicy floral components, semi sweet lemon drops, yeast and a fair amount of hops were also detected. Creamy, soft on the palate, overall an easy drinker. No real trace of the ABV. This would score quite higher if it weren't for the artificial aspect in the nose.

BB 03-05-08. Some head and golden beer with light haze. Nose is alcoholic, malty and litle koreander and more spicy then fruity/flowered estery. Taste full, litle apple juicy, sweetish and koreander. Some maltyness in there but haning bitterness that's phenolic making the whole brew to me just avarage. Good carbonisation but taste makes it a litle strange mouthfeel to mee too. Certainly something else but not my kind off beer.
