Just 3 grains and 3 hops are transformed by a long maturation process to produce a full bodied slight amber beer with a refined balance of floral and citrus notes. Its thick creamy head and bitter aftertaste result in a seductive yet robust drinking experience.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Helder oranje bier. Redelijk zoet, licht moutig, aroma. Smaken van marsepein, caramel, appelsien. Zoetige afdronk die niet lang blijft hangen. Lekker tussendoortje. Niks meer, niks minder.

Clear dark golden body. Sweet ish but interesting aroma, cinnamon, marzipan, apple. Cookie spice taste too, quite a nice concept. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours coppery gold with a white head. Aroma is floral and yeast; maybe a touch of spice. Med body or better. Flavor is floral, yeast, slightly roasty malt, some light non-citrus fruit. Within limits it has me thinking Best Bitter. It has that floral lilt of many English ales. If Bud tasted like this, I’d probably drink Bud.

SylvainCFC (25) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2016
Ambrée claire, bullage fort, tourbillon dans le verre après versement. Mousse crémeuse et aérée, persistance moyenne. Nez discret, léger houblon floral et grains. Arômes peu présents : grain, levure et légèrement épicé (girofle). Présence houblonnée assez faible. Petit piquant à l’attaque, douceur moyenne qui révèle en fin de bouche une amertume moyenne et une astringence moyenne. Corps léger à moyen, plutôt aqueux. Bière belge levurée assez attendue, mais on pourrait attendre plus de caractère houblonné (dry hopping ?). Assez unidimensionnelle.

Belle bouteille de 33 cl. Liquide ambré, mousse claire peu persistante. Nez délicat : fruits ’orange), houblon, biscuit. Belle effervescence. Bouche : un peu piquante ; l’alcool et le sucre sont présents mais pas envahissants. Je retrouve l’orange, des épices (poivre), le houblon, une légère amertume. Une "authentic" de qualité bien équilibrée :

On tap at De Heeren Van Liedekercke, march 12th 2015. Creamy orange body with a full white head. Aroma of ginger, citrus, choriander and pepper, taste of fruity yeast notes, cardamom, dark sugar and flower leaves. Pleasant bitterness, sweet and spicy finish. Quite nice!

Aroma not very pronounced, but had some spice and wheat character. Notably cloves and coriander. Amber with quite a lot of haze. Fluffy head which dissipates to good lace. Sweet initially, but with some spice support. A little more hop would be nice. Clean finish with good lingering caramel flavours. Overall a satisfying light Belgian beer.

Orange with white head. Sweet fruity well balanced beer with a short bitter finish. Ok
