Slightly sourish, with some pale malts and other grains underneath, and lots of citrus flavours. Still some spicy yeast, herbs. Corianderimpression, very mildly (think it’s the yeast, really).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, sent from yourilevesque (thanks a lot, Youri), pours a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma brings out lots of rustic farmhouse notes, some yeast and dry biscuity malt. Flavour brings out lots of rustic farmhouse notes, no hint of honey, and Belgian yeast. Complex and authentic - loads of depth here. Aggressive carbonation that is well-suited here. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is like peach juice with a big frothy white cap. Nose is...sort of surprisingly, a lot of bananas and spice. It’s sort of fruity and earthy too. I don’t get much honey anywhere. Peppery rye on the tongue but not on the nose. Nice overall, smooth, lightly creamy, sweet and lightly dry. It’s refreshing, perfect on this warmish summer night, but definitely more Belgian Ale-like than I was expecting. Still pretty damn tasty.
