Thanks to Glouglouburp for giving this to me as a last minute extra. When i open the bottle (33cl), i see loads of bubbles rising and not long after, it starts foaming out of the bottle. No time like the present to pour... Appearance: Hazy, golden body with massive foam that doesn’t take to long to form a nice 2 finger head which is fluffed like a cloud as if it were whipped. Aroma: A sweet aroma that i can’t put my finger on (at first). Bubblegum? Not quite, more like a natural sweetness, sugar cane? Closer but not quite. More of a fresh dough smell, bordering on a fresh donut. Flavor: I like it right off the bat. First thing i taste is hops. mixed with some dry fruit maybe? Malt rounds it off quite nicely. Extremely well-balanced. Palate: Carbonation is low. Bitterness felt throughout the palate. Hops are always present but never dominant. Some find of rind-like feel (lemon?). A floral/grassy character is felt which reminds me of a meadow or pasture with are the aromas linked to that. Very easy to drink with enough taste to match. Seriously, this beer puts to shame all beers that sacrifice taste for ease of consumption. The most flavorful beer with a lower ABV i’ve had to date. A beer i would have again in a heartbeat. Definitely put one on the top of your list.

Flaska från SB, Blek, pissgul, lätt disig vätska med högt fluffigt klarvitt skum. Frisk i doften med mycket citrus, gräsiga toner, fläder, äpple, gröna vindruvor. Lätt, tunn kropp. Fräsch med tydlig beska med grape och apelsinskal. Domineras av torrt humlebett.

Fresh aroma, looks like a weiss bier. Was drinking Hoegaarden just before and this one looks the same. Taste is completely different. The freshness of the aroma goes away and the after taste is quite bitter. Lower alcohol is noticeable only that the taste is not so full but very good overall.

Bottle at home. Almost clear light straw yellow with white head. Nectarine and apricots, dry biscuits, grassy, yellow plums. Quite fruity with bitter grassy and citrus peel. There’s a very light sweetness too. Under medium bodied with dry feel and quite some carbonation. Great session ale.

Echon (281) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
Pale golden and medium-bodied. Grassy hop aroma with notes of citrus. Spicy and hoppy flavour, with a dry and bitter taste. Overall, a bit of an odd belgian ale. I find it too dry, but it has some decent hops.
