Bottle. Poured a hazy amber-orange that had floating particles of yeast with an average sized white creamy head that almost lasted throughout and had good lacing. The aroma was light of a staw like malt, grassy hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of orange, pineapple and corriander with a slight hint of alcohol. It tasted very lightly sweet at first and then had a light bitter fruity flavor with a hints of spices and alcohol at the finish with the flavor lasting an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall a nice and tasty Belguim Ale that is quite drinkable.

Mörkt gyllengul vätska med tjockt skum. Doft av citrus och säd. Smakar lite pepprig och äppelskal. Torr och eldig munkänsla. Medellång eftersmak.

Une fois versée, le collet de mousse est magnifique!! La levure, l’orange et une certaine acidité sont bien perceptibles. Bon produit, voilà!
