Pours light golden. Nose is pretty flowery and yeasty like a typical Belgium ale. The mouth is slightly sweet with a bitter palate. The beer IMO lacks a bit of body...

floral hops, some lemon/citrus, lacks malts... very sweet, but the finish is nicely bitter... dont really like it, the flowery stuff annoys me... but its light bodied, leaves something warm and quite drinkable
