Amarillo shining through in the aroma. Beer is blond but taste is not white. Very malty but a bit too sharp in the mouthfeel and aftertaste. More spicy than fruity. But different than others.

ALIBALI (513) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2016
Belgika sofort da. Kräuterig und schön schlank sind die ersten Eindrücke. Ein spritziges und über alle maßen rundes Trinkvergnüngen hätte man sich zwar erhofft, aber das es auch so heftig erfüllt wird ,begeistert. Am Ende fügen sich wundervolle Geschmäcker von Honig, grasigen Hopfen und vielen vielen Kräutern zu einem atemberaubenden Ganzen zusammen. Stark!!! Und inspirierend. 0,33l Bottle direkt aus der Brauerei in Amsterdam.Ca. 1,50€.

bonkiedeaap (619) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is golden colored and has a large and stable white head, with enough carbonation. The aroma is fresh, fruity and with hops. Notes of citrus (grapefruit, oranges) and hints of spices (coriander like). The taste is light bodied, refreshing and fruity with some nice hop notes in the end. The finish is light dry and with a spicy bitterness.

Hopverdju (604) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2016
Troebel blond bier met wit schuim. Geur: citrus, koriander. Smaak: een bitterige pompelmoes (amarillo hop) beet en toch redelijk zacht mondgevoel. Goede koolzuurprikkel.

The beer looks quite nice, but not very special. The color of the beer is golden yellow, like most Belgian Ales. The beer has some cloudiness in it. On top of the beer s layer of rough white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses rather quickly, to leave a thin drape of foam. Some bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. The smell is something else. This is special. I don’t know if it’s completely my cup of tea though. The smell has a little sourness reminding me of wild yeast. After this first impression, some nice bitter and slightly sour hop aromas touch the nose. It’s the lovely citrusy, grapefruity hop aroma, which reminds me of manny great Irish IPA’s and Pale Ales. The smell that reminded me a little of wild yeast is all forgotten. I also smell some malts. The taste also contains this hoppy flavor of citrus fruits, especially grape fruit. This is combined with a nice malty flavor and a pinch of the alcohol. It’s quite the combination. To top it all of, I also get some yeasty tones of raisins and maybe even banana. It’s quite nice, and not like any other beer. A nice one.

33cl bottle at the brewery taproom on 14-May-2016. Clear pale golden amber colour with a medium sized head. Aroma of straw, sweet malt, pine and spices. Light body and medium carbonation. Some citrus, lemongrass and malt. Lightly hopped sweet Belgian ale with a bitters finish. Refreshing and easy drinking.
