On tap. Candy-like sweetness on the nose. Subtle fruit, pears and slight grape notes. Very mild citrus. Candy-ish aroma. Really nicely balanced easy drinking beer. Good Belgian character.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Finally got to try this one. Apparently this one is for export only, explains why I have never seen it before. Bright orange with a creamy white head. Nose is very BE, dominated by BE yeast, floral, slight citrus and fruity with some white pepper. Taste is heavy on sweet BE yeast, white pepper, light hops & bitter esters, citrus, spices and sweet white bread / Chinese pastry. Full BE yeast body. Quite a BE profile here, expected otherwise for an export only product. Quite solid. Thx! to the RB Crew for sharing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml Bottle,
this ale had a hazy gold-orange pour and made a large, fluffy white head that lowered to a thick cover that left lots of sticky lacing, the glass had a strong center flow of bubbles with many small streams at the sides of the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a wide ring of light brown sediment,
this ale had aromas of pale malt, nice floral notes of wild flowers, light tropical fruit and citrus, a little yeast and some malt sweetness,
this drink had flavors of light toasted malt and bread, hops that had a gentle spice and bitterness, the finish had light hop bitterness with some malt and malt sweetness trailing afterwards,
the mouth feel was light to medium with average to lively carbonation,
this drink had a very nice nose and flavor, and reminded me of the Troubadour Blond beer which is made by the same brewer.
