.750 ml. bottle. Batch #9/10, Apr 2013. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy (bottle conditioned) orange gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light citrus with lemon, orange tones, cereal, earth, hints of barnyard funk, hints of hop spice.....taste is light citrus, with hints of sweetness initially, bits of funk, finishing dry with a moderate slightly harsh bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low with a clean acid finish. This falls nicely into the Belgian Blond Ale style. It is nicely balanced, has good complexity in both aroma and flavor. The bitterness on the finish is ever so slightly harsh, but this beer is 9 months old and hops will evolve in that time. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured mildly cloudy yellowish with a medium forming head. This was great. Mouthfeel was just right. Hoppy and floral without being too bitter. Nice yeast and citrus notes going too. Tropical fruits, earthy and grassy.

tom10101 (6255) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). From SlovakSniper, thanks! Hazy golden with a huge mostly lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast, light acidic presence/citus, noble hops, fruity notes and grassy. Taste is of citrus, farmhouse character, spices with a sharp bitter finish. Light/medium body, but there’s something lacking (Belgiumness? cereals?). Moderate/good carbonation. Dry finish. Good rustic Belgian Ale. With a couple refinements to the palate, this one could become really good! Drinkable.
