330mL at Taste of Belgium in Eagle Beach Aruba. Pours clear straw, thick white head with tremendous white sheets of lacing. Nose is grassy hops, brighter. Taste is mildly boozy, sugar cube, pear, yellow apple. Palate is not cloying. Actually, this was surprisingly good.

Bottle. Cloudy blonde super carbonated with a massive foamy head. Aroma is musty/earthy, spice, malt and herbs. Flavor is old musty and dusty malt with some faint hop bitterness. Probably an old bottle, not so good.

floral hops, some lemon/citrus, lacks malts... very sweet, but the finish is nicely bitter... don’t really like it, the flowery stuff annoys me... but it’s light bodied, leaves something warm and quite drinkable

Had two, drank them at home out of a wine glass and an oversized wineglass. Had the first one real cold, at 5 degrees, the second one more around 10. Faint aroma, definitely a touch of citrus present, which I only noticed after I switched to a truly oversized wineglass Pale to golden color, slightly hazy with a minimal head. Appearance wise all is good. Head disappears rather quickly. Bit of a poor palate, with a promising sweet first glimpse (personal taste), which disappears abruptly, leaving only a slightly bitter aftertaste, with a subtle alcohol flavour. Overall, an easy drinking, terrassy/sunny - lazy-afternoon-beer, nothing too sophisticated. I like this type of beer, if served on the right occasion.

Bottle from Falkenberg with Nic. Hazy slight yellow. Spicy. Earthlike banana yellow fruity notes. Some bitter sweetness. Interesting.
