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.

Bottle at home with the wife. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have yeasty bread, some sweetness, citrus, some orange peel, peppery spice, herbal notes, grass, light funk, interesting enough beer at 4.5%.

BiereLuc (1215) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
Jaune paille, trouble. Nez herbacé avec un peu de clémentine (!). En bouche, une amertume de pamplemousse nous gagne pour nous laisser un puissant arrière-goût de verdure. Léger et savoureux. Fort agréable.

kajser27 (859) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 28, 2015
Yellowy to amber colored, unclear, medium white frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is meadow honey, floral, spicy and strawy hoppiness. Taste is medium to low sweet malt, meadow herbal honey, floral and herbal hops notes, phenolic spicy and strawy finish, extremely dry, medium+ bitterness, lasting bitter dry aftertaste. Medium bodied, average+ carbonation. Quite bitter and dry, some might say a bit unbalanced. (bottle, ’t Brugs Beertje, Brugge)

0,33l fles uit Lille mee gebracht. Goudgeel met een witte kraag. Anoniem Belgisch blond / saison. Beetje vanille en bloemen, tikkeltje wrang in de afdronk. Mwah
