3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. pours a hazy straw yellow with fine--pored generous head, not the only qualities it has in common with Duvel. Tasty is both fresh green apple peel, faint citrus and a distinct unpasteurised eggwhite aroma. Hard to distinguish the amount, let alone all sorts of the 5 hops used, but they cannot all be belgian. Most are crisp, grassy and imparting shy lemon peel notes, but I’d swear there is Citra in it too. Dry, rather light and crisp mouthfeel. Straightforward pale/pilsner malt structure, one-dimensional. Thankfully lowish ABV for a Belgian ale, hence extra points for helping to found a long-due nouvelle vague of sessionale tasteful ales to add some lighter alternatives to Duvel&Co wallops.

Medium sized white head, changes quick into a half airy half thin lacing on top of a cloudy bright yellow colored beer.
Aromas of manure, carbo gass, cactus, some light haps, plant extract a hint of yeast and a sprinkle of mint.
Flavours of cream, hops, bitters, yeast, light floral, grass, hint of plants, herbs and malts.
Aftertaste is light dry with floral hop tones, yeast and grass.

Pretty ok, expected a bit more but drinkable and not that bad at all.

Tasted at Beerfestival in Hasselt and was pleasently surprised. Strawyellow colour, very little head. Tastes somewhat in beteween a regular blond belgian ale and a typical hoppy beer. Taste is very refreshing and citrussy with a hoppy aftertatse in the mouth. Would be an ideal beer to drnk on a hot summer day.
