29th May 2008. ’Belgian Style Ale’ said the blurb. Hmmm. Really just a mildly hopped ale. Very easy drinking.

Cask (handpump) at the Joseph Else (JD Wetherspoon), Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Mid gold. Lively condition. Some estery fruits in the aroma. Slightly fat mouthfeel but doesn’t taste 6.0% at all. Pleasant drinking but rather low impact for a strong beer. Didn’t realize, or pick up, that it’s a wheat beer.
