3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy light orange-ish yellow with a thick big white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, fruity, grapefruit and citrus. Medium carbonation and medium body. The flavour is not as good as the aroma, although it is a very nice beer with a long aftertaste. Overall, I liked it very much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby 330 ml bottle at home, from trade with Mathieu87, thanks! Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Pours a golden yellow colour on the body, with a tall white head, with good density and also good retention. Spots of lacing left behind.
Aroma is floral, a little bit malty with yeast but also quite hoppy.
Taste of citrus, floral notes, nice hoppy bitterness on the finish, fruity aftertaste and even more bitter. Very good!
Medium thin body, quite carbonated but not so bad after some swirling of the glass.
Overall a very nice and very refreshing belgian ale.

Bottle 33cl, a yellow beer with huge head and good retention as well as lacing. Nose is hopy on the lemony and grassy side with belgian yeast touch. Aroma is malty with lemon and light grapefruit touch, body is medium sweet with grassy and yeast notes, finish has grain and nice cereal touch, again belgian yeast notes. Quite lemony, a citra like hops is there, long bitterness on aftertaste, could be even refreshing the summer, mint feeling, good, oat gives a nice finish.

On tap. Pours a hazy light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, apple, perfume, pale malts. Flavor of apple, peppery spices, Belgian yeast, bready malt. Nice Belgian ale- almost a spiced apple beer because its very fruity and spiced. Easy drinking.

Très belle mousse, peu tenace pourtant. Goût d herbe franche et petite note de basilic . Cependant on de bouche un peu métallique , ce qui est dommage pour une si belle bière .

Belgian blond beer that leans towards an IPA. Sweetish and spicey, with some extra hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Nice hoppy nose, lemon, orange peel, biscuits, spicy, slightly funky yeast. Nice glowing gold color with a high, fine, pillowy head. Somewhat sweet lemon-orange flavor, grassy, hay, bread, nice hops. Nicely crisp and bitter without being overly so. Crisp, light palate. This is very drinkable, and the way I like hoppy Belgian ales—not too malty, not trying to be an IPA, not sweet, just a great hoppy blonde. Very Belgian, and done right. The oats seem to smooth it out well. I could drink this forever.
