Shared a 33cl bottle from Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon. Pours a hazy orangish golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is floral, spicy, yeasty and malty. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with a dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but... Nothing too special.

Bottle from biernavigatie.nl, turns out to be a huge gusher. After I had cleaned up, what remained was a very murky muddy orange with almost no head. Aroma is oranges, grass. Taste is caramel, fruity. Little carbonation, very yeasty. Maybe I got a bad bottle.

Well hopped but never too hoppy. Makes it a Belgian ale with American hop flavors. Honey, flavors and a nice thick palate. Tap at In de Wildeman.

Bottle 660 ml from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Into a tulip glass. Past it’s bbd.
Deep orange golden colour on the body, crystal clear, with two fingers of white head. Thick, with average retention, leaves medium lacing on the glass in the form of spots.
Aroma of grassy hops and fruits, mainly some peaches.
Taste is typical Belgian ale only a bit lighter, yeast, some sugar, peaches, light malts but also some grass. Mildly bitter.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
Overall quite good without being anything special.
