360ml brown bottle. Gold pour, small white head. Nose has lime and white grape notes, some caramel and yeast as well. Taste is dryish and clean, a bit of light caramel and mild citrus. Dry finish with minerals. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Hoppy belgian yeasty pale ale, good, hop aromas seem to bleed away a bit too quickly, but a nice little ale, certainly sessionable.

Bottle. Very carbonated pour, cloudy golden body, messy white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, citrus, light ginger. Brisk carbonation and a lighter body make for a gassy mouthfeel. Lemon-lime hop flavour, lightly spicy, low bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4.7% at Tadg’s draft pint 1100 yen with 200 yen off during happy hour. Great honey gold color with a piney + citrus hop aroma over a malty base. The taste is thin bodied, a bit watery but it has a bitting bitter start, biscuity middle & lingering sweet fruity finish. Pretty good, it would benefit from a fuller mouthfeel though... As it warms up it gets a bit of spiciness to it, nice.

Bottle from Plonk. Would not have picked this for a Belgian, aromas and flavours seem more hop-driven. Fruity/citrusy, fresh grass aroma, light and easy drinking, certainly sessionable.

Draught at Bungalow in Kyoto. Light lemon flavor. There’s an odd tick at the end I find interesting. Very drinkable, but kind of boring.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of champagne grapes, lime, some biscuity fruit sweetness & grass. Taste is very grassy up front and then just mild and thin the rest of the way except for a slight champagne like finish. Achieves what it wants for a session ale but the taste is too simple a d the high carbonation doesn’t help this beer.
