Taster served from bottle during a visit to Huisbrouwerij Den Tseut. Unclear golden, medium sized, white head. Fresh citrus fruits to the nose. Champagne-like flavour with citric fruits, a bite of yeast and candy sweetness. Dry hopped ending with notes of alcohol. Well bodied. Pleasant (Oosteeklo, 30.04.2011).

Big offwhite head. Hazy opaque deep yellow body with carbonation. Light delicate floral herbal aroma. Dry delicate herbal peppery taste with floral fruit notes. Light body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry buttery floral herbal aftertaste with spicy notes. No alcohol taste, amazingly. Incredibly light and drinkable. (Taster at the brewery.)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Upon opening a large object gushed out of the bottle. After a collective "WTF?" moment, it was determined that it was a hop cone! Yes, a hop cone floater. Odd, to say the least. Pours dirty blonde. White head. Little hop cone floating particles. Unfiltered, to say the least. Nose/taste of musk, yeast, orange peel, spices and hops. Medium body. Pleasant.

Bread, cereal, hay, golden, medium bitterness, light body, it’s okay... I probably won’t remember I’ve already had it next I drink it.

13/02/2011 - 75cl bottle @ De Bistronoom (2011-52)
Note: this beer is served in De Bistronoom as their housebeer, called "Den Aangespoelden", according to the owners it was already sold at their place before "Belle Cies" was put on the market.
Cloudy yellow to light orange beer. White creamy head. Aroma: very hoppy, spicy, some malts, faint yeast aroma, some of the alcohol on warming up. MF: ok fine carbon, medium body. Taste: full malts, fruity touch (peaches), hops, hint of candi sugar. Aftertaste: some candi sugar, but not cloying, taste and not too dry hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Opaque yellow with a small, partly lasting head. Aroma of citrus and pale malt. Flavor is pale-malty, lightly citrusy, with well-hidden alcohol. Medium body, quite thin for the ABV, actually. Again, well made and easy to drink, but not memorable. 5335

From bottle at ZBF 2010. Hazy golden colour, medium white head. Fruity, pale malty, bit alcoholic nose with citrusy hoppiness. Good sweet malty with light almond feel. Medium bodied, with a tad bitterness in the end. Not as sweet in the finish as one would expect at 10%.
