Golden-tan colour and hazy. Fruity-bready-yeasty nose. Yeasty palate shows light fruitiness. The finish is an odd mix of dry and gluey. A workaday Belgian ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at De Groote Witte Arend in Antwerpen. Guess this isn’t brewed for the restaurant like I thought. Oh well. Fairly standard Belgian blond. Hazy golden-straw color with a white head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, and light fruits. Flavor of the same with a slight herbal quality. Palate medium. Decent but nothing special.

330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009)
Simple malty aroma, a bit plain.
Honey and malt taste. Pleasant buddy hop finish. Quite tasty in places, but a bit uninteresting too. Covers 6.6% completely.

Tap @ Grote Witte Arend, Antwerp.
Pours clear golden with a small, creamy, white head. Sweet aroma with
malts, apples and yeast. Fine mouthfeel with a light carbonation. Flavour is a bit underwhelming compared to the nice aroma. Ligt malty, yeast and a touch of green apples. Fair.
