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.

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.

Bière au gout houblonné avec une forte amertume. Bière très plate, à part l’amertume il n’y a rien d’autres.
