Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon and light citrus hops. Taste is mildly sweet with basically no bitterness, quite balanced. Light body, smooth on the palate, and soft carbonation. Overall, I quite enjoyed this beer.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottled 19/07/14. A golden coloured beer with a loose white bubbly head. A typical Belgian yeasty beer but it’s a bit lightweright especially at this strength. No great depth of falvour and booze is unobtrusive. It’s OK but no more,
