Very flowery on nose and flavor, probably from a orange blossom honey. Slight Belgian yeast taste and slightly sweet. Don’t get much from hops or wheat

750ml bottle from Gabe. Rating #25. Clear golden pour with a quickly fading white head. Kind of a funky aroma, a little bit of citrus, mostly lemon and a little metallic. Big yeasty bitterness, more lemon and a good amount of acidity, much better than the aroma. (1617)

750ml bottle pours a translucent, hazy, honey yellow with one ring of white head. Nose is booze, honey, citrus oil. Flavor is honey, orange zest, sweet, candy. Full bodied, sweet finish. Just tons and tons of sweetness.

750mL from someone at our DC local tasting. Thank you! Poured a hazy/dirty blonde with a thin, fleeting white head. Aroma is all fully oxidized red apple slices and kids apple juice. Taste is sweet, cloying, syrupy, cardboardy oxidation. Drain pour.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Wash. DC tasting. cloudy golden, white head lots of sweetness, apple, spices, Belgian yeast, caramel malts, honey sweetness pushing the envelope for thw wit beer style , warming abv, some orange peel with a mild spicy finish. Overall, the booze and honet sweetness take away some of the character of the beer.

750 ml bottle at DC local tasting. We had a lot of fun with this name. Golden color. Aroma of grapefruit and bazooka. Taste is a bit slimy and oily, but with a decent sweet and sour balance. Interesting.
