3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle of 250 ml, at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6%.
Pale orange golden in colour, with a huge three fingers head, white and soapy. Very good retention, no lacing around the glass and very little activity in the glass.
Not much of an aroma actually, some spices, orange peel and yeast, but all of them faint.
On the taste, malty grainess and a fair amount of hops, average bitterness. Too much of the malts flavour if you ask me. As it warms up though, that flavour retreats and others are advancing, like the light citrus flavour for example.
Medium on the body with average carbonation.
Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing exceptional either.

Vanmiddag gedronken op terras bij de roestelberg vanaf de tap. Fris blond bier, wat het goed doet in het zonnetje. Mist wel wat kracht.

Una classica belgian ale, piacevolmente fruttata e arricchita da note dolci, di lieviti e una leggera punta mielata.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy and thick white head. A light, dusty malt smell, biscuity, then a tropical fruit hop aroma with a hint of spice. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt taste to start, but this is only brief, it is soon taken over by a tangy tropical fruit hop flavour, with pineapple, banana and citrusy grapefruit and lemon. There is a hint of clove and cinnamon spice, reminiscent of a wheat beer. The finish is long, tangy fruit along with the spices.
