Murky orange/golden color with an island of silky foam. Taste is sharp and biting, Lots of hop presence here (but not overwhelming). Beautifully crafted and delicious beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear yellow color. Medium size, yellowish white head, stays. Grassy hops, sweet malts, flowers, perfume, citrus in aroma. Malty, grassy, hay, faint citrus, packed with hops in taste. Medium plus plus bitterness in a nice way. Drying yeast and juicy citrus in aftertaste, perfect mix for quenching the thirst. Soft carbonation. Well done brew!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy pale gold with foamy white head. Aromas are kind of Saaz hoppy, not very pronounced hop aromas. Flavors start with some definite Belgian funk, hay, grassiness, then the hop bitterness takes over through the finish. No fruitiness here, kind of a cross between a Czech pilsner and a dry golden Belgian. Interesting, but the hop character is not my bag.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into chalice glass at home.
This is a really good and different Belgian ale. Not hugely strong flavours but a nice bitter taste mixed with a slight sweetness.
Definitely not too dry at all. A very good light beer that seems to go under the radar a little compared to other Belgians.
Could definitely drink a few of these!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: green melon, green herbs, witbier notes, flowers, dry perfume.
Taste: herb bitterness, some harsheness.
Light sourness in the aftertaste and long non-hop bitterness (medicinal plants).
Overall this is a light blond ale with pleasant aroma and unbalanced bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My kind of hoppy beer (yet, only 65 EBU). Almost American style bitter beer. Great drink when you are thirsty. Citrus hints, light palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with big white head. Aroma is fruit esters, banana, tropical fruits, spices. Taste is lots of more fruits and heavily bitter. Not as aggressive as many other Belgian Ales. Very nice!
