Bottle 33 cl. bought @ Tubize we have visit this new brewery in an old industrial complex, and talk with the brewer Jean R. Hazy yellow-golden color, with nice creamy white head. Aroma hops, some lemon, grainy-malts, yeast. Medium body. Taste like an easy and refreshing blonde with reasonable hop character. . good bitterness, and a little citrus notes too. Refreshing, good.

33cl bottle. Yellow / orange with low to medium white head. Nose : yeast , wet laundry, banana, citrus, spices, cake. Sip : Creamy brew with low carbonation. Sweet and little dry. Develops well hopped bitterness on the end. It’s not strong , still is an honest one. Overall it’s a refreshing and easy to swallow liquid with a well balanced flavors. My choice for a refreshing drink in the garden.

Note:According to Joost from DHVL this is from a small brewery in Tubize. Not sure though, since I can’t find anything about it online. So I’ll just enter it under this entry.
Clear blond beer, big solid creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty yeasty, grassy hops, spices, bit dry, dusty, citrus peel, slightly peppery. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: pretty fruity start, citrus fruits, peaches, little sweet, very fresh and fruity. Aftertaste: peaches, little bit of yeast, grassy bitterness, yet soft, some citrus.

At Bierfestival Dijleschuimers. Pours rather clear blonde. Smell is bit sweet, grainy, some yeast with its typical fruityness. Fresh, for sure. Rather high carbo, and a decent MF.

[3326-20100809] Tap. Fresh corriander seeds and mild leafy grasses in the aroma with later hints of carpet cleaner. Clear, light orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick spotted lacing. Leafy grasses and iceberg salad mix flavour. Medium body has a mildly tart background. Quite nice on the patio, drinkable.
