330ml bottle from Beerstore at O’Connor. 9.5 alc./vol. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is mainky hoppy and spicy with a whiff of citrus. Taste matches the aroma. Taste: Alcohol is pronounced with notes of Belgian malt and has a strong finish. Lively carbonation.

Randy4Beer (173) - - JUN 12, 2014
370 ml bottle at Beermarkt in Montreal. Pours a light yellow with thick frothy white head Smells of bready yeast, bananas and hops. Tastes like a hoppy wheat beer with some bitterness on the tip of the tongue but with a lightly sweet swallow. Some floral notes throughout. Overall, very Belgian but one of the best I’ve had in that category.

PriorL (1779) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2014
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: grains, alcohol, rather fruity. TASTE: grains, hoppy, rather dry, oké. But for 9,5% I expect something more...

supermeniscus (55) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2014
Had this bottled on many occasions. Aroma is always very citrusy and inviting however taste apart from the initial prickly citrus and carbonation eventually becomes flat and has a soft bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden and not a bad beer although pretty average for a BSA

The smell is very hoppy, appearence ia nice. First impression of the taste is aour, but it quickly leads to a gentle, sweet aftertaste. Very good choice for an evening on the balcony.
