The beer pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a large white head, and the aroma blends light malts, Belgian yeast, sour fruit, and wheat. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, but the palate elevates the flavor due to the average carbonation, thin and slick texture, medium-light body, and a finish that extends the flavor with an extra kick of Belgian yeast flavor.

Mainuh_man (238) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pouts hazy golden orange with a rocky white head. Really interesting and strong aromas. Dried fruit, bubblegum, sweet candy. Little malt character in this beer. Starts almost immediately with light bitterness, transitioning to alcohol, yeast, woody and salty flavors. Finishes slightly sour, but doesn’t linger very long, leaving behind heady alcohol feeling. Light body with a relatively thin mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Overall, I’m a bit disappointed in the flavor and texture after the amazing aromas coming off this beer.

bonkiedeaap (307) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has yellow/golden color and a large white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma tones malts, grains and fruits (a bit lemon like). The taste starts dry and hoppy, but changes in a fruity taste with sweet bitters. The finish is well balanced, long and has some nice bitters.

Tsekouratos (346) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUN 28, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours golden yellow with a huge white head. Aromas of orange zest, spices, typical Belgian yeast notes and maybe some bread. Tastes pretty much the same, with the spices nicely blended with bread and biscuit notes. Oily mouthfeel, sweet aftertaste, long. Medium body with medium carbonation.

KoNrRiI (517) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
0.75 bottle. Little hazy, pale, gold color and a big, thin, white head. Aroma of pale malts, hops, and spices - a typically Belgian combination with a noticeable yeasty addition. Taste is a bit sourer than expected, not as sweet and spicy as is customary for a Belgian ale. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the taste, not to a fault but still unexpected. Overall the beer is really mediocre, especially considering the style and brewery’s repute.

nilsas (1718) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2014
Duft av plomme, gress, jær og sitron. Dunkel lys gulbrun farge. Dekkende hvitt skum, noe heng langs kant. Frisk smak av frukter og noe syrlig gress. Nydelig og lett drukket.
