3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Harajuku taproom. Slightly cloudy pale yellow colour with small white head. Aroma is yeasty, bit Orval like but not as funky, and a bit saison like. Also a touch of lemon and orange. Taste is nice and fruity and ultra drinkable. Feels very pleasant in the mouth. Slightly bittter finish. Lovely!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose is very phenolic, big peppery and clove-like characters along with doughy Belgian yeast and lemon notes
Lots of lemon as a flavours too as well as the doughy yeast. Also some sweet light malt and soft pear notes. Finishes very dry.
Carbonation is too high.
Very nice, refreshing stuff!

This was highly carbonated and had a large head on it. It tasted good, a little bitterness. I could drink more but there wasn’t really anything that grabbed me. Good but not great.

Classy and refreshing low ABV hoppy Belgian ale. Great balance, well brewed, and (as you’d expect) very sessionable. Just a little underwhelming.
