An excellent top fermented ale, brewed according to the traditions you can find in the domain of Bokrijk (Belgium). Second fermentation in the jar.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, milky yellow body with a modestly-sized, fizzly white head. Smell: Aroma of lightly grainy malts and sugary cereals. Slim notes of lemon zest, meadow flowers, spice, and white peaches, which attaches to a waft of alcohol giving a little sniff of schnapps. Taste: Light pale maltiness, perhaps a bit of pils in the mix, with a moderate sweetness to it. A sousing with water, then a slip of alcohol. Fruitiness of white peaches and soft lemon. Only a slight bitterness is felt. vague peppery spiciness. A bit of enduring sweetness for the lightly acidic, lightly warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A beer that never really grabbed me, instead one I just got through, like paying bills or doing the laundry. I found it to be less than appealing and pretty forgettable. You might like it though!

750ml ceramic bottle - thanks to Thirdeye11. Pours nice and frothy - smells of banana, honey, and bread. Clear, slightly sweet, and a bit funky. Quite enjoyable, I went back for a bit more of this one.

Awesome high-fire ceramic flip-top bottle (500ml). Pours golden and bright with an immense white head that was foamy and tight in areas and soapy with big bubbles in others. Fruity sweet aroma. Banana and sweet grainy pilsner malt. A bit delicate. Overall - decent.

Clear and light yellow with a head of lots of big bubbles. Aroma is yeasty and citrusy. Taste has the Belgian, twangy edge to it mixed with unidentifiable spices. The finish has clean tastes of light fruit. A good Belgian, but not my favorite style.

This beer pours a muddy dull yellow with a thick white head. The aromas are lemon, yeast, light skunk. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly sweet with a bitterness on the end. Not a great beer but drinkable. Cheers!

New "Monsters" design.....Pours a clear light gold with large foamy white head. Aroma is filled with light fruity esters, yeasty, with a nice light malty profile. Flavor doesn’t stray far with an added light touch of sweetness, notes of white pepper, little grass, nice hop profile with a balanced bitter in the end. Mouth feel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, I really enjoyed this.
