4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bomber poured in a tulip. Aroma is musty and almost Bavarian. Initial flavor completely different - creamy floral and a little spicy. Very crisp and not too sweet. A really complex and interesting yet very light beer. A great find.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. This has a nice big lasting white head that’s leaving some heavy lacing down the sides of the glass. All this on top of a cloudy dark orange body. The aroma has a Belgian yeasty touch with white, or bright candied sugar, something light floral, it feels fresh and there are traces of grassy hops. It smells quite like a nice blond should smell imo. It’s just above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel has a really light and light-likable soft oily thing to it. Some zest acidity in the taste. At least that’s the first thing I get, and the Belgian yeast is also present. Bright candied sugar and more grass. This time the wet type. It has something gentle and calming over it this blonde. It’s not as aggressive or brutal as some might be. I’m enjoying it. That being said, it’s not something I feel that I absolutely have to try again. My first one from this brewer that hasn’t had those big chunky sediments. 27.03.2013

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Un col blanc qui s’efface rapidement et une mince dentelle qui glisse aussi vite.Le liquide est blond-blanc, style bière blanche .Au nez, surette, peut être les levures, fruité comme le vin blanc.En bouche très liquide,pas beaucoup de corps,légère acidité assèchante et une fin malté qui ne fait que passé rapidement.Pour conclure, pas une grande belge mais somme toute correct sans plus.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting, one 0,33 l bottle and one 0,75 l bottle. First of all the difference between the two bottles was remarkable. The small one had a quite murky look with a small white head, and the large one was clear with a small head. The small one had a distinct aroma of a pig’s barn, apple, ciderish, hops and some malts. The large one lacked the smell of barn and was a lot fresher. The same applied to the taste, the most noticeable was the resemblance to cider, especially the big bottle. Very fresh, citrus, apple, hops. The finish was different as well, from very dry to medium dry. Medium bitterness, and good mouthfeel and nicely carbonated.
