4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy shade of golden straw. Big creamy head that sticks around and laces the glass very nicely.
Clove, bananas, a little bubblegum. Very much like a typical blonde. Nothing distracting or annoying about it.
A little clove on the front with a very fruity banana presence. A little sweet, but just about right.
Smooth. Spicy due to the abundance of carbonation. Not sticky sweet, which might be the conclusion for the taste.
Very drinkable. Not harsh, not hot. A pleasant beverage to drink while mulling over the day. Probably my favorite Urthel to date, although Hop-It is good as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized creamy slightly off-white head that settles quite quicly. Leaves some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild yeast, quite much fruityness as well as mild spicyness. Flavour is rather sweet malts, some zesty notes, mild wooden notes as well as some yeast and mild spices. As it warms up, it gets some mild barnyardy notes in the aroma.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured an 11.2 oz bottle into a glass tulip...
The beer is a hazy, pale, yellow with a lofty, pillowy white head that remained throughout the process.
Smells of wheat, lemon, banana, clove and some hints of sourbread.
This is the first farmhouse ale that I’ve had so I don’t know what to compare it to. In my opinion it tastes pretty good, there is some grassy hop flavors followed by hints of lemon, and wheat, it ends up being salty followed by a slight bitterness.
It is full bodied but still light, lots of soft carbonation and a very dry finish.
I enjoyed drinking this but the salty flavor and high carbonation would limit me from drinking more than one.

Draught @ Akkurat. Pours golden, big white head, semi hazy. Earthy, (belgian) yeasty nose. Flowery taste with notes of berry sweetness and white pepper. Ends hoppy and bitter in a currant seeds way. Maybe a little too sharp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Bov. It pours a hazy golden beer with a tall white head. The aroma is yeasty, reminiscent of apple, pear, a lot of melon, white pepper and cork. Very belgian. Strong carbonation. There is a nice bite to this beer. Medium bodied. Nice lacework. Dry finish. Pleasant, refreshing and very true to the style. Thanks a lot Bov!
