Hazy yellow with a medium white head.

"Mainly yeast and light fruits on the nose and the palate. A slight sour/tart aspect on the swallow, but more sweet and spice. Solid across the board, if not quite a standout."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery shop, far too cheap. Another strong blond. Fruity - oragnes, apricots and banana. Not too impressive given the name...

On tap. Orange colour on the body, slighty hazy, with nice activity in the glass. Thick white head on top with good retention.
Aroma of a typical blond belgian ale, peaches, little apricot, sugar.
