3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Popcorn looming - a perfect beer to crush at high speed. Champagne grapes, lime, peaches, sharp artificial honey, lemon cookies. This got a whole hell of a lot better once I let it open up. Lime Pop Shoppe. The rate is light. Lime, zip, maybe a hint of licorice, orange. Mellow and a quick drinking brew. Time for scotch!

Foamy tan head under hazy yellow-amber body, quiet looking. Nose of classic Baird vinous hops and some biscuitty notes as well. Tart grassy hops up front leave a mild malt backbone, its calm and subdued, but at 4.5% session this is probably the idea, almost a mild Orval flavor or a hoppy golden ale.. Palate it a bit bubbily, and slightly soft. For a session its quite good, but beer lovers usually want more flavour. I bet its very nice on tap.
