3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Belg Aube in Ikebukuro. Light orange colour with big off-white frothy head. Aroma is grainy, bit of citrus, little bit tropical. Taste is fruity and lightly herbal. Orange not as pronounced as i remember, cookie dough at the finish. Bit further down the citrus starts coming out. Tap version is definitely more exciting than the bottle I think. Pretty good summer refreshment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Into mini Rulles glass, opaque orange-yellow with nice bubbly head. More of a blanche than a blond in appearance. Tasty, sweet like a dessert, but with a bitter finish. Aroma is of wheat and citrus notes. Drinkable, a bit of a Belgian real ale in taste.

Bottled 0,75L. Dirty and hazy blond clear color, good bubbly aspect with a foamy head of long duration. Fresh malty aroma, notes of yeast, stum and grains notes. Pleasant prickly body, good alcoholic body with a fresh malty and equilibrate bitter final.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(75cl bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for around $12. Pouts a large frothy off-white head atop a sediment filled orange body. Nose is very yeasty and barnyard. The mouth is wonderful, highly citrus with biting hops throug the finish. Light and quaffable. A very nice brew.

Draft. It seemed kind of sweet. It is lighter-bodied and semi refreshing but a bit sweet.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, orange peel, spicy funky yeast. Bitter flavour, fruity hops, light warm sweetness, orange oils, light funk. Bit thin body. Finish orange, Earl Grey tea, lingering bitter.
The nose is quite unbalanced, but it comes together nicely later.
