Jado (805) - Camp Hill, - AUG 7, 2016
330 ml bottle. Lightly hazy golden body topped by a fluffy white head that collapses almost entirely. Aromas of funk, white grapes, lemon, pepper and white bread. Taste is bready up front but soon overtaken by lightly sour lemon and wine flavours with a decent touch of spice. Clean finish leads into a grapey aftertaste. Refreshing and more-ish.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 Great balance, good character and fantastic drinkability. Highly recommended.

Salian (146) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2017
Resiny mouthfeel and a slightly metallic aftertaste make this a frustrating drink. Looks lovely, classic Belgian flavour profile but a little disappointed overall.

tombyars (1776) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2017
330ml bottle courtesy of Lisa - cheers! Poured into a tulip glass and sampled on the 2nd December 2017. Hazy gold in colour with a thin white head. Warm yeasty bread notes on the short hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a weak digestive biscuit backbone that is lost within the metallic tang of the hop resins. Aftertaste is hoppy with a wheat/dry cereal flavour impinging on proceedings. An increasing metallic harshness then comes through on the hoppy finish leaving a metallic almost salty tang astringent on the palate. Very little in the way of citrus fruit in there - maybe just a vague hint of grapefruit pith, cardboard, grain husk and copper undertones. Not a big fan of this Belgian Ale style, give me a Trappist any day!!

rodbod (453) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle from Beer 52. Hazy orange gold. Nose is spicy, yeasty, sugary-sweet. Taste is yeasty, properly Belgian. A good solid Belgian style beer, on the mid to light side.

anfractuosity (465) - - NOV 11, 2017
Cloudy straw colour. Spiciness/clove in the aroma and taste. Bitterness in aftertaste.

3.3
JorgeLee (2259) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle, Beer52. Light yellowy golden colour, white foam. Nice simple example of the style, light dry backbone, hints of ester, spicy floral hop, medium bitter finish. Slips down nicely enough. Solid.

2.2
matstrange (248) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Hazy straw colour with thin head. Has a gentle sourness but no 'main' flavour. Refreshing but nothing special.

3.4
Benters (97) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Pours light golden, slightly hazy with thin white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, bready malts, some citrus fruits and spices. Taste is a smooth blend of yeasty flavours, some caramel, orange and spices. Medium-bodied, slightly dry finish.

2.8
Cokemonkey11 (1106) - - SEP 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours pale golden with a thin white foam subsiding. Scent is medium notes of soft Belgian Wit. Lovely. Taste is medium light wit with some soapy properties. Some apple properties as well. Finish is dry. Good.

jooilakon (289) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle 330 ml from Beer52.com. Aromas of yeast, malts and citrus. Hazy golden body and white head. Taste is malts, yeast, hay and citrus in a very good balance. Leaves a refreshing, crisp aftertaste. Very enjoyable beer.
