3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have a cold so the aroma is sort of a mystery but it smells floral hoppy. Gorgeous golden pour with huge rocky white head and a champagne-like effervesence. flavor is bitter and dry yeast with mildly astringent hops and not at all chalky. I find the palate to prefectly dry and rounded even in the midst of the one dimesional flavor of this particular beer. Really enjoyed this beer.

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.

33cl bottle from cerveteca Lisboa. Hazy gold appearance. Nice medium head. High bitterness. Wasn’t expecting this bitterness, it’s nice! Medium body. Aroma is floral, yeasty, light fruit. Nice season beer!

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.

My kind of hoppy beer (yet, only 65 EBU). Almost American style bitter beer. Great drink when you are thirsty. Citrus hints, light palate.

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!

From tap at Au Soleil, Brussels, 16.02.15. Hazy straw colour. Hoppy aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and banan. Similar taste with bitter grapefruit. Refreshing and interesting.

Bottle poured. Pours a sparkly gold color with a short fizz head. Really dry belgian beer here, with some white grape, and light lemon flavor. Has some light spice to it as well. I’m usually not a big fan of the super dry beers, but this one makes it work really well. Crisp finish. Fun stuff. Glad I tried this.
