3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from 33cl bottle. Fruity aroma which goes along with yeast. Dark yellow to orange colored with a nice white head. Slightly hazy due to bottle conditioning. Moderate to strong hoppy bitterness well balanced with the malty flavor. It has a long lasting dryish bitter finish. I like it and you can enjoy more of it due to it?s relatively low ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Fruity, grassy, metallic - both on the nose and flavour. Watery. Flat. A strange experiment. Did not take much notes but... I really wasn’t enjoying this.
Edit: Giving it another try (bottle nearing its BB date). It seemed clear in the bottle but as I opened it the bubbles made the floaties go berserk! Otherwise - looks nice. Good-retaining head, lacing, hazy orange colour. Saisony on the nose with wheaty, grassy and slightly peppery notes, sweet, fruity... pretty nice actually! Tastes as nice - wheaty and fruity, as sweet as it is bitter. Funny - last time I said it was flat, now it’s as bubbly as a beer can get! And that works well with the somewhat drying palate and the overall grainy/bitter/grassiness of the beer. Bitter end, grassy green hops.
First time I had it was at a tasting - got to try it warm and only had ~1/3 of the bottle... Goes to show that kind of format is no good for proper reviews! It is actually a nice hoppy Belgian! Pushing it up by a whole 1 point.

Nice lightly hopped Belgified pale ale. Light bronze with a bit of haze. Nice white head. Good session beer with more hop presence than you usually get in Belgium.
