Poured a translucent honey gold colour - great looking beer. Had a thick white foamy head that lasted and laced. Aromas subtle, traces of yeast. Tasted sweet followed by slight hops bitterness. Finished soft with sweetness and slight bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Medium to light body. Refreshing!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Beautiful hazy yellow appearance, with white, soft fluff. Smells typically Belgian - that wheaty, yeasty smell. Rich mouthfeel, filled with lemon, some pineapple boiled sweet and iced bun. Does feel remarkably Summery. A delicious, fresh drinkable session ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold, with a huge white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves some lace. The aroma is quite muted, but does have some cinnamon, cloves and fruity Belgian yeast. Lemon hops notes are slightly diminished by a sweet yeast flavour up front. Estery yeast dominates the body, with only very faint biscuit malt notes lurking in the mix. Sweet citrus and more estery yeast make up the finish. This is passable enough, but like so many Belgian-style beers it is far too yeast-dominated.

Orange peel and zesty lemon aroma. Similar flavours on the palate. Very smooth and refreshing but not as interesting as the average nogne o offerings.
