Bottle - WoW! This beer should definitely rate higher! Really nice orange/golden in colour with a big white had which leaves decent lacing. Taste begins with malt sweetness, followed with a thin yeasty sourness and some biscuit. Ends with good amount of hop, which is unusual for a Belgian ale but absolutely good that this one has it. Great beer!

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, floral and citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long yeasty, floral and a weak hint of pepper in the finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2016
Big white head. Hazy amber body with lots of floaties. Fruity mealy aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet herbal mealy fruity taste. Mid-to-light body. Fizzy mealy mouthfeel. Mealy fruity aftertaste with herbal notes. Either my nose is screwed, or this is not really a very interesting beer. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)
