2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours blond with a decent head lacing and a little head. Taste has some bitterness and a little bit of spice but not huge on character. Very crisp. Alright for style. On tap.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale blond body with a limited cap that reduced to a sad film that sadly spins around the top of the beer. Grass clippings with hints of orange possible lemon in the aroma with big bready notes on deep inhales. Taste is crisp and clean, just a slight lemon hop lingers in the after taste. Grassy malts with orangy to a lemon citrus hop. I taste flavours..... I mean flowers. Goes down fast and forgettable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is very average with cereal notes; oatmeal and barley. There is also this annoying meat smell that I have a hard time with.
Half creamy and half rocky head that disappears kind of fast with no lacing.
Color is blond (straw) and a bit hazy.
Taste is definitely grassy and cereals are sticking out. Finish is with a slight bitterness and we can feel notes of hazelnut that saves the day. Very surprisingly tasty hazelnut notes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at DDC. Pours a pale amber yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bread malts, cereal, grass, hay, and light citrus lemon. Flavour of the same. Very subtle. Loses flavour quickly. Not very interesting. Good if you’re looking for a very light beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours a low haze, bright yellow. Medium white head. Excellent sheety lace. Nose is candy corn, sharp lemon dish soap. Fresher dough as it warms. Taste is hoppy, citrusy, grassy, a bit metallic. Reminds me a bit of decent quality Czech pilsners- a bit soapy, metallic, candy corn. As it warms, thicker grassy/dense hops come through. Sharp white alcohol in finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice looking bone white head that shows great retention and lace. The aroma off of this is kind of funky, like play doh or something like that. Sweet honey and bread mixed with a a hop cone or two. The flavor is light sweet and refreshing. Light sweet malts with a hint of honey and light sugar as well as some hops if I squint a bit. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel.
Nice approachable blond ale that’s easy to drink. Luckily the offensive odor seemed to go away the longer the glass was sitting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bière blonde légèrement voilée ayant un col mousseux timide laissant une parcelle de dentelle. Odeurs de malt et de sucre. Goût semblable aux odeurs avec des touches de miel et un peu acidulées. Un arrière-goût qui laisse la bouche pâteuse. Ce n’est pas abject. C’est juste ordinaire. Embout. 02-12 Lot 4-4 (254-040612)

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden orange mostly unclear with a creamy tan head. The aroma is lighter malts, like blander wheaty cereal, which you also got dominating on the flavor. This was described on the bottle, so it is no surprise. The body is nice, but you don’t get the full sweet Belgian yeast notes that I like.
