Leicht trübes dunkelgoldenes Bier mit viel leicht beigen Schaum. Geruch leicht malzig, fruchtig, floral, trocken. Geschmack fruchtig malzig, dezent gehopft, grasig, floral. Ulysse (539) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2014
Quite hoppy aroma. Definitely bitter but still not in the extreme brackets. Fresh hops taste. Long sticky bitter finish. Flanfl (816) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 4, 2014
Cloudy golden color. Aroma of hops and yeast. Flavour of citrus. Long dry hoopy finish. A good IPA.

Clear, golden appearance. Lightly sweet fruity aroma. Flavour has some spicy, peppery yeast and underlying sweeter, notes. Foams up a lot in the mouth. OVerall OK

Bue à la pression en 25cl, couleur ambrée, belle mousse, effervescence très moyenne, une bière assez simple dans son goût un peu maltée, houblonnage un peu juste et continuité sur le fruit de la passion. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 Bottle conditioned 750ml. Airy mineral water nose with faint hops (lemon, flowers, green / raw wet hop character that shows up once the yeast blows off a bit). Yeast is somewhat dirty (concrete mix / gravel), malt is simple cara syrup with red apple resemblance. In the mouth it’s sweet, syrupy / oily, medium bodied, low bitterness, low carbonation and low overall acidity. Vegetal and green in the finish. Had we known this was another De Proef contract beer we would have passed :/ John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle at Academie Biere in Paris. Poured a glowing orange color with active carb bubbles. The aroma was grassy hops with citrus. The taste added apple, peach, pineapple, and a peppery resin note on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a very enjoyable hoppy Belgian golden ale recommended by the bartender with our lunch.

Apparently brewed in Belgium for / by a Scottish brewer living in France, if I am correctly informed... Regular, brightly white, mousse-like head, colour a pure golden blond, clear but misty after addition of the ’fond’. Nose gets apple, unripe peach, orange peel, wheat, bread, honey and grassy hops; taste a nice rounded dryish fruitiness in onset, fresh citrus notes, in the middle a soft, somewhat caramel-like maltiness and gently spicy yeastiness but otherwise a bit neutral, finishing grassy and slightly spicy bitter (hops) with mineral undertone. Not much of an IPA in my opinion, rather a typical Belgian blonde ale of medium strength. Not bad, though. mkel07 (6397) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from September 2013. Bit of a funky aroma going on with hops and tropical fruit dominating.
