Bottle from Amsterdam. Nice soft aroma of sweet fruit with some Belgian yeast scent. Pours orange with good carbonation and a white foam. Tastes smooth and not over the top in any area and the 8.7% abv is not noticable at all. Very easy on the palate, overall a very nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white creamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer.
The aroma’s are fruity and hoppy: apple, peach, apricot, vanilla, creamy, wheat, hops and some hop flowers.
The taste is a bit soapy at first then there is the citrus, some spices like vanilla, there’s other fruit like peach, some glue/gass ish tints, herbal flavours and some bitter. The soapyness stays through the whole of flavours.
Bitter soapy herby aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
