Light dry nice bitter light fruity aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft tingly and silky mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture. Lovely brew!

This is a Belgian ale that is all over the place, hoppy, but light, and some sweetness and yeastiness. I good Belgian IPA I would say.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy lightly dirty beige color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma consists of lightly funky yeast with dry and astringent hops with a delicate sweet malt base. Taste is also lightly funky yeast with notes of astringent and dry hops and a well balanced Belgian malt base. Body is full with limited filtration and great bottle conditioning with no apparent alcohol notes. I am a sucker for those easy to drink Belgian ale with a nice hops edge and even more of a sucker when Struise are involved.

Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a lively carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 7/8/2011. This Belgian Ale pours a medium to dark orange gold color from a 33oml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, hoppy and herbal. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, yeasty and bright. The hops are herbal and earthy with a hint of spice. Nice soft carbonation. Nicely balanced. Somewhat hoppy and crisp for a Belgian Ale. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow orange color. Smell is pretty good, light hops and light sweetness. Not a nice aftertaste and too much carbo.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Etre Gourmet, shared with Palme. Pours a straw-colored hazy body with a medium, short-lived and quite foamy head. Nose is wheat, pale malts and slight hints of citrus and molasses. Very mellow. Mellow is the key words to the taste as well; pale malts, hint of molasses and grassy hops in the finish. Well-hidden ABV, this could easily have been a 4 % bitter or something. Extremely smooth and drinkable, but on my palate it all comes of as a bit boring, eventually. Nice session ale though, wouldn’t mind having a pint of this in the sun sometime. :-)

Didn’t like this one too much. The colour is pretty nice. Smells pretty good, bit hoppy, bit sweet.. Taste is a little bit less then i expected from the smell and the mouthfeel was a bit to lively for me. Good beer, but not really my style i think.
