4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a hazy gold color from the bottle with a lasting white head. Lacing was beautiful. Smelled of light citrus. Carbonation was soft to medium. Mouthfeel was light to light-medium, and went down perfectly. Tasted subtle complexities of the malt and slight citrus. Great beer for a hot day. Would have no problem drinking only this if I were a monk!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured hazy orange color with medium off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of perfume, belgian yeast, and coriander. Paper and light yeastiness on the flavor. A medium bodied beer that just lacks any zest. Very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma is a tad bit yeasty with some lemons and spices. The flavor is rather watery with a hint of lemons in there. Overall this is very one dimensional like a belgian on training wheels. Apparently this is difficult to find, but stick with the other 3 from Chimay IMO. Boring

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at tasting at stevo’s. Pours pale hazy yellow with slight white head. The aroma is lemon zest, lavender, herbs. The flavor is simple: lemon balm, graham crackers, and a bland finish. Super easy to drink, but a bit boring.

Thanks to lithy for bringing this to stevofest - another one off my wishlist! Cloudy golden yellow, decent whte head. Smells very yeasty, and some floral notes. The flavor is pretty much like the aroma, only moreso - yeasty, floral. Pretty refreshing, as well. I liked it.
