A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thick white head. Aroma is fresh, herbal , with light bubblegum and orange. In mouth, a good sweetish creamy malt, with notes of orange peels, a bit of herbs/spices, like cloves and thyme. Nice light belgian hopping. Overall, a very refreshing summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml Bottle (Thanks Guide Dog Saint)- Amber in colour with a haze (due to me pouring the yeast in!!) and a lively foamy white head. Fruity and sweet aroma with pineapple and grapefruit being noticeable. Fruity and slightly sweet at first with some tangy notes. The hops come through after a while and the pineapple and grapefruit are evident again. Very refereshing and tasty and certainly does not taste like it is 6.5%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It has a yellowish golden body, topped by a medium-sized white head. The aroma has a nice sweetness and fruityness, with pale malt and some spicy notes. Some sweetness, pale malt and a little spicyness in the mouth. I’m sure it would be nice as a summer beer, it’s not as sweet as many blond beers, and quite refreshing. A bit too much alcohol though, even though it’s not much alcohol taste. (080411)

Flavor: like in the aroma, the flavor begins with citric notes and oranges and pineapples reminiscences. The malts inject sweet taste. Lasting and light dryness from hops. Malty aftertaste.
Palate: light to medium body. Also carbonation is light to medium.
Remark: fresh and some fruity beer, but without highpoints.
