COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

jjsint (493) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light yellow with a whirlpool of carbonation. The sign of a great beer (as opposed to one that is merely good) is one that you are happy to smell for a good 10 minutes, breathing in an exciting and unique aroma. Fresh and funky, hints of seawater and TCP. The scent of heaven. Taste is even better: a balanced salty sweetness with a bittersweet finish. Palette is like the kiss of one’s own true love.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow amber body, tall steady head. Aroma has wheat, yeast, mild citric hops. Tastes like a strong witbier with coriander, banana, wheat and lemon. Finish adds some honey and a warm glow. A sweet beer with a carefully balanced hoppiness. Such a well balanced beer.

prawlie (1052) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Opaque yellow-orange, gassy, with a huge bubbly head. Sweet, dry, yeasty and tasty. Has a bitter aftertaste. Spiced and yeasty aroma. A particularly good example of a Belgian blond.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
33cl Bottle: BBD 12th Aug 15, poured into a Duvel glass @ home on 5th Dec 13. Almost clear golden colour with a good head, could almost have been a Duvel in the glass. The aroma however told you it wasn’t a Duvel: this had a grainy and mild citrus note in the smell, along with some yeast esters. The taste was also a mixture of flavours, again grainy, citrusy and yeasty: crisp, sharp and leaning towards tart with a dry bitter finish. Nice brew.

This is a very good beer. They got the balance just right between bitterness and a slight sweetness. Citrus wheaty aromas. Full flavor. A little nutty even. Like it.
