I should preface this by saying that this is one of my favourite Belgian ales that I like buying by the crate. Pours clear light yellow-gold with large white head. Aroma is coriander, cloves, grass, spice, herbal. Taste is nicely bitter and very aromatic with banana, cloves, green apple. Long dry grassy aftertaste. Medium body, good carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Light gold colour. Nice white head. Lace foam on the glass. Creamy mouthfeel. Nose of haystack with faint clove and spice notes. Very fresh and alive. Lots of hops and a touch of pear and bubblegum on the finish. A very nice beer.

Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and a slight hint of vinegar. Taste is citrus hops, a mix of orange and lemon, yeast and pepper with some mild grapefruit bitterness. Moderate carbonation giving a slight fizz on the tongue. Very good.
