I didn’t put this in my beer cellar list, so I’m not sure when I got it. If I had, I’d have cracked a low-alcohol hoppy beer much sooner. Pour is just noticeably darker than the usual golden Belgian pale lager. Lots of floaty bits, I’m guessing hop bits rather than yeast? Aroma is nice, but it’s nice for a sweet Belgian pale, nit much trace of hop. But then there’s the taste. It is bitter as advertised, just the peppery noble hop bitterness. Backed by a dryly fermented malt that just gives this the nice feel of a beer. Something your Bud-drinking uncle might enjoy if he gets curious about those funny looking beers you have.

Schenkt een licht-geel bier. Een belgian ale, maar meer een session gezien de hoogte van de alcohol. Geur van mout en gist, smaak van mout en citrus met een lekkere bittere nasmaak. Geen onaardig biertje, maar wel wat licht van smaak en niet al teveel diepte.

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 (1216) - 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 (866) - 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
