3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Craft Beer Co, London. Hazy golden pour, crisp carbonation and a firm head capping it off. Dry and floral nose initially, with a touch of malt sweetness. Prickly mouthfeel tends to enhance the dry and perky citrus flavors, though thereís certainly more than a touch of yeast and breadiness in there as well. Decent but pretty forgettable.

In bottle. Smells like hay and white wood. Tastes like a good typical Belgian ale but quite well balanced and mixed with a strong taste of barley sugar. Rather sweet on the finish. Solid beer.

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 itís balanced as well with a nice herbal and rustic hop bitterness. Iím sure that in a years time this would taste like utter garbage, but as it is now itís 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.
