Bawelt (72) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 20, 2015
Très agréable et légère. C’est à peu près tout. Très légère, très fine, doux pléonasme pour ne pas dire un peu pauvre. Le seul pep’s vient d’une amertume légère qui réveille la langue. Niveau arôme, il faut un peu se battre pour aller au delà des notes herbales du houblon. Pas mal, pas mauvaise mais plutôt faible.

King_Alex_II (624) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Pale yellow color with a sustaining foam head. The smell is a mixture of Belgian yeast and hoppy bitterness: a Belgian pale ale. The taste is fresh hoppy bitter, tart, accurately carbonated, dry and has a Belgian note. The aftertaste is dry and tart with hints of green herbs in the hops.

1.35€ Vanuxeem Belle robe pale et claire, mousse très dense et aérienne avec une bonne tenue. Rafraichissante et légére, bière qui répond aux attentes (extra hoppy ale), amertume présente avec une longue tenue en bouche.

4.5% ABV. Belgian ale. This tapped out a light gold yellow, 5°SRM. The nose was full of hearty wheaty aromas and bright lemon citrus. There were some interesting funky wet yeasty flavors in the nose as well. The palate had pronounced carbonation with bread-like flavors reminiscent of fresh dough. In fact with the yeasty flavor notes, this tasted very much like a gently proofing ball of bread dough. The flavors were fresh and light on the tongue. The hops figure more in the finish and there is a medium lengthy finish with some nice bitter hops. Overall, a quality experience, and a good example of what can happen when skilled brewers get their hands on good quality ingredients. Goes on Favorites List

thellgren (456) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Pale yellow cloudy colour with bubbles and strong head. Taste has some citrus and lots of hops. Nice hoppy ale, nothing more.

Hoppy_Luke (669) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Kolejny belgian ale, ale nie należy zakładać, że będzie to piwo takie samo, jak poprzednie... Słomkowy kolor z ładną, drobno- i średniopęcherzykową pianą. Aromat zbożowy, cytrynowy. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, cytrynowa kwaskowatość. Bardzo delikatne, ale w sumie smaczne, sesyjne piwo.

Tåkete gul med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter grønne epler og gress. Syrlig noe pepperig. Kort. Tørr.
