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.

ContemplateBeer (1608) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Aroma: Assertive dry noble hop character, a little ointment, faint crackery malts. Appearance: Hazy straw yellow pour with a thick white head that fades into a healthy skin. Flavor: Big noble hop presence throughout; a little crackery towards the finish and very dry, leaving a lingering bitter perfume. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Excellent, dry hopped beer.

Bottle 33cl from the brasserie de la Senne, @ home. Light, bitter and dry, long lasting (too?) bitter finish. A nice refreshing beer.

Drank from a bottle. Really nice! The taste is a bit fruity but also with a proper amount of hops. Looks really good too.

Bottle thanks to Countbeer! Pours lemon yellow with a huge white head, which laces the glass as it quietens down.Aroma is citrus and coriander. Taste is coriander, lemonpeel and slightly bitter. Thick body. Nice to drink.

Gedeeld met lachneger. Witbier kleur troebel met wat gist. Aroma van mout, wat zoetzuur. Smaak is fris bitter met een droog trekkend mond gevoel.

Robe jaune pâle, avec peu de mousse. Au nez et en bouche on retrouve des notes d’agrumes. Une bière légère, pas très complexe, rafraichissante. L’amertume est toutefois prononcée et reste un moment sur le palais.
