Yellowish beer with at start a big head. From a 1,5 ltr bottle. Good combination of hops, sour and fruit tastes. Had the feeling it was like a light tripel.

A really fresh tasting and fruity beer. Color is yellow/amber-ish. You can taste the malts, but the alcohol not so much.

Bottle. Pour an almost glowing light orange with robust head. Nose is complex: Belgian yeast, fruity sweetness (apricot, peach), grass. Taste is pleasantly sweet, balanced with light spices, yeast and a dash of hops. Lovely.

Beardbeerman (214) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a hazy straw with a huge off-white head showing good retention and lacing properties as carbonation is average. The nose is pretty yeasty with tingling spicy notes offering a nice addition to the bready malts. Again on the tongue, the yeasts come out strong with a sharp spice pushing the bready malts and some grassy hops to the back of the palate through a very round body. The finish is ample and lingers quite a while. Cheers!

Had it on draft in Brussels. Simply extraordinary batch! Nice orange color, complex nose of fruit spices and yeast. Beautiful malt mix flavor, Great finish of sweet, sour, slight bitterness and carb punch. Bravo!!

lekkerbiertje (5) - - FEB 3, 2015 does not count
makkelijk weg te drinken speciaal bier erg lekker voor de beginnende speciaal bier drinker. licht fruitige tonen zorgt voor een zekere frisheid. mooi blond helder bier ziet er mooi uit in het eigen glas.

SinH4 (553) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Hazy yellow color with big white head. Fruity, yeasty-spicy aroma. Taste is Tripel-like, but on the bitter side and with less booze, with a nice dry finish. Crisp carbonation, foamy mouthfeel. I like it.

Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy golden colour with big white head and nice lacing. Average carbonation. Aroma of fruit and spices. Taste is medium sweet and spicy. Some bitterness and alcohol in the aftertaste. Overall I’m not really impresed.
