3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Initial taste is grainy sweetness. It’s most interesting feature might be the finish, which is mildly bitter and long-lasting, but also it also includes an alcoholic sweetness. Body is medium and texture is oily. Aroma of grains and yeast and alcohol. The colour is golden, first serving is clear, second hazy. The head is white and leaves lacings. (Bottle)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Aahh, it pours a clear golden body with a big, dense and light fluffy white head. Aroma has some nice citrus notes with grapefruit, it’s light sweet, notes of orange zest and a little yeasty wheat note in there as well. Subtle and quite nice. Average carbonation, smooth and gentle mouthfeel. Mildly sharp on the flavors. Quite malty and light fruity at first, then you get some of that nice Belgian yeast with hints of some almost peppery spices. Continues with a nice light both hopy and sweet flavor before it gives off a little warming alcohol hint in the aftertaste. Light drinkable, refreshing and uncomplicated.
