3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow-orange, medium white head. Aroma yeasty, fruity. Medium light body, lightly carbonated. Flavor is pretty sweet, candied citrus predominates, some malt but not too much, some hops which are a little soapy. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy blonde color, almost golden with a nice tight white head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fairly yeasty, some bread dough, some banana, lightly floral... a little too sweet smelling to be very inviting, but nice enough.
The flavor is t touch sweet.... sweeter than I would normally prefer... but it’s balanced as well with a nice herbal and rustic hop bitterness. I’m sure that in a years time this would taste like utter garbage, but as it is now it’s fruity and bitter and bright... the beer has a nice light peppery note and the sweetness is not overly annoying or really even out of place. But it certainly has that malt/sweetness profile that end up dominating blonde belgian beers that sit on the shelf for too long.
