I drank half of it already. It was good enough to just enjoy but I guess notes are required to pad my status in my own mind. Wonderfully strange aroma that is quite perfumy with pears (dominant on occasion), papaya, faint funk, mellow peppery yeast that seems to be the glue here. The way this has changed I could just sit here and enjoy the aromas until the liquid in my glass evaporates. Tasting goes well and fast as this is incredibly drinkable. Grass, rrgf, white pepper, herbal things, unknown fruit as it is there yet everything else seems more important. a 750ml would have been so much better.

330ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge white head that lingers and eventually reveals some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and other light fruits with some hints of caramel and yeast. Taste is a citrus and spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation that delivers a sharp bite on the tongue. Overall, a nicely done brew that is balanced and tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 Goudblond bier met oranje gloed. Mooie witte schuimkraag. Grassig aroma. Ruikt en proeft in eerste instantie beetje naar wiet. Hele aparte geur en smaak maar wel superlekker !! Kruidig, bloemig, bitter, er zit vanalles in. Bier dat niet in één woord te vatten is en daarom ook zó lekker !!

Kr1zz (328) - BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle bought at Geers in Oostakker. Pours hazy orange with a big white creamy head. Nose: very hoppy with exotic fruits and citruszeste. Medium carbonation. Taste: starts strong hoppy bitter with sharpness from the citruszeste and exotic fruits in the back. That sweetness doesn’t stick too long and make room for again bitterness with citruszeste sharpness.

C’est agréablement gentil. On sent toujours le côté traditionnel belge; mais aussi une certaine modernité ... Ce n’est pour autant pas très exaltant ...Oui, en effet, cela ne m’inspire pas des masses ...
