Light alcohol presence. Tasty and well executed Belgian Ale. Better than expected. Decent drinkability.

ciocanelu (51) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
330 ml bottle, poured into a long tulip glass. Color is a light, a bit cloudy, orange. Forms a two finger head that dissapears slowly, leaving just a ring of foam. Smells much like a witbier: wheat, yeast and sweet malt. Taste is a bit sweet and fruity in the beginning but hoppy bitter in the finish. Body feels light and carbonation is high. Overall this is a complex and well balanced beer. Thumbs up from me.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
330ml Bottle. This pours a light golden body topped with a medium last head. Its aroma is floral and mildly sweet with hints of spices and hops. Its yasye is surprisingly malty with a citrus smoky finish with the slightest dry smoky linger. A very nice blonde this one.
