sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2012
50cl bottle. Dorée claire, col blanc épais/crémeux. Arôme citronné et houblonnée allant vers la citronnelle, grains , malt cara pils. Bière au profile malt léger cara pils, petite douceur rappelant le maïs, sec avec une pointe houblon amer et fleuri, le tout est balancé avec un côté fruité tropical sympa qui pour moi me fait penser à la mangue et en suivant une pointe de pamplemousse.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle at Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2011 and another from the same batch drunk on 30th April 2011. Very light straw yellow with a big white head. Clean, crisp nose of lemon zest, herbs and very fresh hops. Has a light pilsener texture but the fuller flavour of a summer ale, with good malt flavours coming through as it warms. A pilsener to savour. Feels very fresh and light. An exceptional example of the style.
