A decent Belgian Ale from M&S. Pours hazy blond with a good fluffy white head. Bittersweet flavours with earthy spicy notes balanced by honeyish malt bill. Palate is spritely and medium bodied.

imdownthepub (10578) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Marks & Spencers in Banbury. Orange gold with white head, high carbonation. There is a distinctive Belgian yeasty thing going on with this, candy, pear drop, synthetic banana along with a honeyed note. Sweetness to the fore although there is a hint of spiciness. It’s fine.

jackafholmes (294) - - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from m&s. Misty orange beer with no head. Beautiful aroma of oranges and bananas. Same taste, but spoilt by unusual fizz I got from the belgian bruin.

minutemat (1820) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
330ml bottle from M&S Birmingham New Street I think. Left for a while, only just got round to cracking open. Gusher. Solid, creamy blond with a good yeasty character.

Theydon_Bois (9695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle on the train home from Twickers, from M&S in said place, 29/03/14. Golden with a big old off white covering. Nose is light yeast esters, vanilla essence, floral tones, orange peel, lemon rind. Taste comprises candyfloss, caramel, soft bread dough, light spice, candied fruits, light metallic notes. Medium bodied with a little punch, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough Belgo affair.
