Bottle: Poures a murky yellow with a white head. The aroma is strong hops with sweet fruit. The taste is highly carbonated with loads of nice hops and yet still a touch if fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(3/2/08) Draught sample at Zythos Bier Festival 2008 in Sint Niklaas. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of hops, fruits and some yeast. Flavor starts really soft and a bit sweetish and continues to a bitter hoppy, slightly citrusy, finish. Medium-bodied. Fresh and very pleasant.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a pale, orange-heud body with a full, foamy white head.
Smell: Pilsner malts with a scent of wildflower honey, sliced peaches, and citrus. Slight note of fresh-ground pepper and bread.
Taste: Pilsner maltiness melds with a myriad of flavors, peach juice, lemon juce, spice, and honey. Never more than a mild sweetness. Floral, citrusy hop character with a growing grassiness and just enough bitterness to bring balance. Slightly musty yeast character. Crisp, drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A little under moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Immensely refreshing! A very well-made light Belgian ale with a delightful complexity. I made it through the 750ml bottle in record time.

2008-03-07. Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head. Served right frickin cold it takes me a while to warm it up. Pleasant lemon citrus in the flavour, muted underlying pale malt. (7+) Muted aroma, I can not tease much out of this. Light muddled citrus, dusty pale malt. (6+) Average plus palate.
On tap at Delirium, Brussels

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught (Delirium, Brussels)
Pale peachy colour, thin head. Coriander and citrus aroma, like a good wit. Big fruity peach taste, and very decent hopping. Refreshing and crisp. The words don’t do this beer justice, but just note that 15 overall is generous for me, and well justified.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at ZBF 08. I was really lucky with my first few beers on day 2, beers that I really liked. Hazy gold, lasting beige head Really rather good. Hop sting on end, soft in mouth, creamy. Well balanced, drinkable, mid blond beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
ZBF 2008: Hazy gold, with a good off-white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, slight lactic sour, bubblegum and banana. Low earthy and grassy hops. Flavorwise there is first a quick shot of citrus followed by hops and then green wood. The hop character is strangely sweet. Then comes cane sugar before a more earthy hop character comes through. Those hops take you into the finish with some banana-bread.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 pours out a hazed golden with a decent head that clings for a short time and spotty lace. The aroma is yeasty, fresh bread, spice, lemon, and slightly floral hops. The flavor is of light malt, some ale fruitiness as it warms, dry - however there is some sweetness that dances around, hops in the finish, and rather understated, but in a nice and refreshing way. The palate is quite refreshing, fizzy, and clean. Overall, this is quite the hot weather beer. Not for the Minnesota winter, but still good.
