Light hazy golden-amber in colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of fresh hops. Taste of young, light aromatic hops, light barley, grass, herbs and spices. Floral hints. Easy to drink, really nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasty and bitter beer with a nice appearance and fair alcohol percentage. Got it in various locations around Belgium. Mostly the western regions sell it in the supermarket. Comes is 25cl and 75cl bottles.
After pouring the beer, a fair amount of foams appears and stays for quite some time. A bit like Duvel but not so much.
Taste: herbs, hops ofcourse and bitter, much CO2 but functional as the tastes fly around.
All over a very tasty beer with enough alcohol to enjoy!

floral aroma with some citrus, blond a bit cloudy, smooth hops and malt; long lasting head, creamy with a good bitter aftertaste. Pity that my bottle was only 25 ml, I like it

Split a 750ml with Hopswagger.
A - Pours a hazy golden color with a hefty white roof.
S - Stale grain, corn, skunky, old stale bread, mild grass.
T - Toasted grain, a metallic comes through pretty strong, phenolic chalky yeast, earthy pepper, lemon tartness, stale grain, low presence of eathy grassy hops, finishes spicy with bits of dried fruits.

Either this was past its prime or Iím missing something. Underwhelming along with lots of off putting metallic flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light gold with foamy thin white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and light hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad, but a little boring.

Bottle 25 cl. Pours orange in color with a small whitish head. Ripe garden fruityness and some belgian
yeasty mild spicy notes in aroma. A bit of crackers, some pear and mild earthy notes in taste. Fruity and
summer meadow on the whole in aftertaste. A nice and tasty brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a clear golden light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweaty hops, melon rind, light fruits, bready malt, toasted malt. Flavor of light fruits, musty notes, a sweet honey twang, and breaded malt. I was expecting a little more from this one, but itís ok

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have found that I need to be more open to the options available on the Brick Storeís Belgian list. Too frequently I jump at the hyped up limited release American stuff. My fanboy predilections almost caused me to miss this delicious beer. Pours a honey haze with a thick white head. The scent is nutty and earthy like a saison. Flavor is savory and sweet with bitter late bite. The mouthfeel is foamy and full of life. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA
