3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by nuplastikk at the 2010 Max’s Belgian fest: Pours a transparent bright pale golden with a pillowy froth of white head. Aroma of soft grassy hops and pale malts with some biscuity yeast and floral character. Starts with average fullness and some light pale malty sweetness with a touch of biscuity malts and earthy floral hop bitterness. Pretty smooth and drinkable.

11.2 ounce bottle in Duvel glass. Very pale hazy yellow with flat white head and nice lace. Mild herbal aromatic citrus bready aroma with a hint of clove and tartness. Mild vanilla peach sweet fruitiness with very dry somewhat bitter a little bit soapy peppery finish. Pretty fresh, which IMHO is crucial for this style. Nice, refreshing, pleasant. A very good beer in a subtle style.
