Pale, almost white in appearance, one finger head on the pint. Massive hoppy aroma, piney and floral. Taste is more of the same but punctuated with an estery Belgian character, presumably from the yeast. Loved it, an interesting, progressive beer.

Cask (Foundry, Canterbury)
Light belgian yeasty aroma. Slightly watery taste. Super drinkable, with a nice hoppy bite at the end. Very belgian - I’ve never had that belgian ale style made so quaffable before.

Cask handpull at Foundry Brewpub. Clear gold thin white head. Its a hoppy estery beer. Wow thats quite unusual. Its like a half belgian estery blond and a half demi ipa. Terrific hoppy aroma. Still not sure the peachy estery belgian yeast goes well with intense hops but that may just be me. A little still on the condition. The hops are outstanding. Good but still not sure belgian blond west coast ipa works.
