Aroma: light hop with slight toasty caramel malt. Flavour: a flavour matching the aroma.
I thought this really nice but blanded out toward the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml) from Dan Murphy’s. Pour is hazy golden blonde with a healthy cream white head that is short lasting but still leaves a decent lace. Nose is plentiful oranges, soft honey malts, light fruity hops and a hint of vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet golden malts with a nice spicy bittersweet hop finish. Mouthfeel is light and tingly with a medium body. Rather lacks the body and complexity of an authentic Belgian ale (which admittedly usually have higher ABVs) but still a pretty good effort by a local brewery. Recommended.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light bronze, off-white head. Smells of orange peel. Tastes of it too. Nice matching lightly toasted malt. Some fruity hops, mild finish. Lacks a little weight.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is of honey, caramel and malt with some yeastiness backing it up. Flavour is similar but fruitier displaying citrus, pineapple and banana. Although I like this beer and appreciate what the brewers were trying for, I can’t see myself buying it regularly.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can see what they are trying to do, and they do a good job of it. A low alcohol belgian pale seems a bit odd, but this has a great yeasty nose. Unfortunately the body and therefore taste suffer. Still good solid drinking, but not something I would actively seek out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Copper in colour with a mixture of small and large bubbles that tried to make a thin wispy head. Mixed aroma of different spices. Strong tart taste with a long aftertaste and good strong body. Feels good in the mouth and the flavour is absorbed throughout the whole mouth.
