Pours pale straw with small head and no lacing. Up front on the nose lots of yeast and cereal. Mouth is hoppy with some cereal and a bit of a peppery finish. Hint of lemons as well. Medium body in the mouth. Lovely beer from an always exciting brewer.

cloudy with light yellow colour and a fair amount of dead yeast floaties. aromas are yeasty, belgian esters, citrus rind and a nutmeg. tart lemon flavour witha bitter finish that is a bit sand paper like. lighter styled brew but enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half of a comparative tasting of both Be and Que versions, thanks to the brewers! Very pale lemon yellow beer, small white rim. Dryish, young/milkripe grains, pinch of lemon. Dry, doughy and spiced (as ground mustard powder), wholemeal pasta. Champenoise pearling, light bodied, rainwater quality. Nice light, spritzy beer, refreshing.

500ml bottle. Pours a sickly cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Looks like a Berliner Weisse sort of, but not as pale. Aromas of belgian yeast, candi sugar with a little lemon and some spice. Lemony and tart on the palate with a nice spiciness. Sandpapery texture. Very dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy light beige color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of rustic malt notes with light dry pungy hops notes. Taste is a mix between a semi-sweet malt backbone with some rustic notes and some pungent hops with a dry finish. Light herbal notes could also be detected. Body was full with good carbonation. Nice drinkable Belgian ale with some complexity.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrusy hops blend well in the aroma with cereals and doughy yeast, it’s quite appealing. Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a thick, frothy white head. In the flavor, everything lives in harmony and balance, the citrusy, lemony hops are quite present, but not overly dominant so they leave some place the malty cereals and the yeast to join the fun, there’s a distinct bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation. This is incredibly well-done and easy to drink, definitely a great thirst quencher. I need more, I mean right now!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Bottle 500ml. (Edited after drinking on tap at "Le trou du diable")
Pours hazy pale golden with nice white head, good lacing. Aroma is of grapefruits, flowers, very hoppy, spices. Tastes hops (citrus), all the way from the beginning to the dry end, hiding other features. Good, refreshing. [Edit: just had this from new batch bottle 500ml. Was’nt enjoyable at all for me, quite a let-down. Not gonna modify score here, but we are talking (3/5/6/3/12). There is an old musty rotting rag aroma/taste ruining this brew. Notes: Pours somewhat hazy blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, citrus, musty salty murshroomy rags. Taste is of grain, bitterness, citrus, yeast esters (lots), old rags. Palate: Light body. Dry mouthfeel. Overall: Not really good. Something is weird here, probably related to the rye. Not easily drinkable. Flirting with DP]
