Cloudy golden orange with 2 finger head. Aroma of cloves, citrus, honey. Flavor of honey and wheat with light grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Also has a unique flavor that I can’t place. Lively carbonation and lasting foam.

Nice Belgian Ale with a rather refreshing aroma of hops and citrus. I expected a lower amount of alcohol.

Bottle says best by June 2014. Pours amber with heavy dark floating sediment. Smell is dark fruit, honey, some oxidation. Taste is oxidized a bit with some lite cardboard, spicy yeast, floral and fruity, lite pepper. A bit old and mistreated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jaune brumeux avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme du malt, levure belge et un peu d’houblon. Le goût est d’abord un peu du malt légèrement sucré et du levure belge puis une finition assez amer (pour une belge) d’houblon floral.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Grill Next Door. Very floral with some light citrus hints. The dry hopping seems to carry over into the flavor as well, with Belgian yeast, cracker malt, and solid amount of floral notes. Nicely dry texture. Classic example of a Belgian ale and highly drinkable.

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.99):
Another very nice Belgian offering here, this one was quite bitter but as I suspected not quite as bitter as some of the American style beers I’ve reviewed on here. There was a lot of spice and background fruits to this one that balanced the beer out well and the tart flavours started strong but settled down was the beer had time to open up a little. Overall a decent beer and one well worth picking up.
