This is brewed by a small brewery with a brew length of only 100L. The brewer still works in the lab at Orval, and uses the yeast from there for this brew. Along with the Orval yeast this beer utilises Citra hops. For me this is the most exciting Belgian beer being brewed at the moment. Perfect pairing between esentialy an Orval and Citra hops, very exciting. However, not for you hop heads, whilst there is a clear hop presents, we’re not talking massive, very well balanced. If you get chance to get your hands on this, snap them up.

VDuquerroux (1273) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow hazy opaque beer with a medium white foamy head ; good retention ; voluted bubbly. Fruits (citrus), herb, biscuit note. Medium dry bitter refreshing, light sweet. Medium body, thin silky texture, high carbonation, fruity yeasty finish. Overall, a good one !

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Sample. Hazy yellow/orange with a big head. Aroma is really bad with spicy and yeasty off notes. Taste is shallow, yeasty with a very short watery finish. Move along ...nothing to drink here.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass, from the fridge. This beer is a nice, interresting discovery. It got a wit, blond taste for a beer with a deep blond color. Great hop taste, with a little more acid aftertaste. The aroma is pretty poor though. Try it !

erickok (5452) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2016
Hazy blond body, looks okay. Classical Belgian feel, lots of fruity yeast aromas. Simple taste, very simple hop and malt profile, light bitter. Not bad but hardly interesting no? (33cl bottle from Delhaize Florenville)

Lekker aroma, een beetje bitter zoals het hoort. Schenkt mooi blond uit met een mooi schruimkraag. De smaak is net zoals de geur. Lekker met een beetje bitter

domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2016
Pours a clear blond beer with a firm white head. Smells hoppy, bit of citrus, bit floral. Tastes bitter. Leaves a gently bitter palate. Bit of a yeasty flavor also. Okay beer, nothing amazing.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Slightly yellowish, whipped eggwhite-like stable head, lacey, over well-carbonationed orange-golden beer. Milky, lactic (not acid) nose, white candi sugar, lightly peppery aroma. Stable head keeps lots of hopbitterness concentrated. Quite dry, straw-like, dry grass-like flavours. Again white candi sugar; alcohol conspicuous for such a low ABV beer. Creamy texture, well-carbonated, bit empty palate in flavour/aftertaste. Not very exciting.

Belle couleur, belle mousse persistante mais ce qui suit n’est pas aussi agréable. Bière assez quelconque, amertume supportable et finale banale

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2015
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur jaune pale, très léger trouble, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. Arômes principalement céréaliers, houblon en fin de bouche. Malgré un titre à 6,1%, on sent l ’alcool.. Elle se laisse boire mais n’ a pas vraiment d’ intéret outre mesure. Trouvée à la Brasserie Dleneste - Froidmont.
