Tap. Sheffield Tap. Hazy, straw colour. Thin, white head. Bready, and yeasty. Lemon notes. A bit grassy. Grainy malts. Taste is light, grainy sweet. A little dryness. Crisp, and zesty palate. Feels a little thin, though. Short, dry close. Decent. Refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cork & Cask.
Appearance - cloudy golden orange with a nice continental head.
Nose - apricots and creamy, like apricot yoghurt or peach melba.
Taste - zingy lemon and orange, still some apricot, then some gentle sweet spices, maybe delicate clove.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry yeasty finish.
Overall - interesting ale and plenty of punch for an unusually low Belgian style alcohol level.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the Tap East Open Brewhouse Fest 2014 - London. Pours clear yellow, efferveacent, with a creamy white head. Dry pale malt nose with dry lemon peel, biscuits, some slight Belgian yeast. Light sweet flavor with lovely dry doughy biscuit character, slight bitter straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, dry and clean on the finish with some fuether biscuits, dry dough, hay, lemon peel, background Belgian yeast expressions. Outstanding. I really love this kind of crisp, understated Belgian ale.
