3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a Brugse Zot glass. Very light colored; transparent yellow. It has a perfect finger and half of white head the held nicely.
Smells like cottoncandy and orange. Too faint though.
Mild citrus fruit, sour something and seltzer water.
The mouthfeel is amazing. It was so soft at first, then a little crisp and bubbly. Really, really nice.
It looked and felt good but the smell and taste were really lacking. Easy to drink because it tasted like flavored water. Not really impressed.

Nice Belgium beer, citrus and sweet complexity. Yet this is still a Belgium beer that is not worth buying again

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours pale straw, very slight haze. Copious, fast-receding white head. Grapefruit and green apple on the nose. Very slight hint of something funky, but not unpleasant. Flavor is sharp, more apple, some citrus. Slight sweetness develops throughout, resolving with a tart, crisp finish. Thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. Refreshing, very pleasing and drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire, Saturday 31st October 2015. Looks lovely and spritzy on the pour, lovely clean, zippy bubbles. Aroma fresh but also Belgian, clean, a touch of spice and orange peel. This is fresh in the mouth also, a seriously confident, classy beer. I like it but a big bottle on my own after a few beers was hard going. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A soft, spicy dough, accented with light oranges and with a gentle nudge of wine grapes. The light honey brew cascades into the glass and a soapy white head rises to two fingers above the surface.The aroma is mirrored in the flavor and the carbonation is as delicate as the rest of the experience. Refined and elegant and even the finish screams class. Very nice. I’ll be happy to open another when the need for a subtle nightcap.
