Yellow pour with a large white head. The aroma has some sugar, herbs and toffee. The flavor is full of herbs, yeast, grass, sugar and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Tastes a little better than it looks like. Very very pale with a huge whipped cream foam. Citrussy, tasty, not too bad.

Bottle, 8% at BBF13. Fruity aroma with some spicy pepperiness. Clear pale yellow colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is fruity with a rough bitterness, not unpleasant, though. (Too) high carbonation. Chalky finish.

Bottle @ BBF13. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops with a subtle fruity note and a touch of malt. Sweetish, malty and estery flavour with notes of hops and clear alcohol presence. Lingering, sweetish aftertaste. Decent but quite strong.

Served from the tap at café de paardestal in Mechelen, NL. Poured with generous head to enhance the aroma of citrus and mild bread. Beautiful lacing on the glass, and the beer itself is the cloudy gold which I love in this style. Mouth feel is very creamy, really a pleasure to roll around on the tongue. Taste is earthy, bitter, but refreshing. Not a stand out exceptional beer, but quite tasty and refreshing nonetheless!

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...
