COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Aroma: Biscuit (hint of speculoos), ripe banana, apricot, spicy nose (coriander ?) ; Appearance: clear, pale yellow, medium white head ; Taste: medium-high sweetness, medium-low bitterness ; Palate: medium body, thin feel, medium-high carbonation, average finish (spicy yeasty aftertaste). Correct, but far from awesome.

Great light orange color, not much head to speak of. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, hops, spices.. nice balance. Taste is wheat, hops, spices... a little bitter and dry on the backend. Its a quality brew.

Pours a hazy pale golden with a medium white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of hay, slight peppery phenols and malt. Not really fruity and the husky malts just take too much place for my liking. Taste is fairly dry with more pepper, very light fruits and more of that awkward multigrain bread/malts. Moderately bitter. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high. One good thing I can say is that it doesnt feel like 7.5% at all. That doesnt mean much, though, as it is just a weak belgian ale. Too much cereals and not enough of the belgian character.

ASPETTO: biondo limpido, schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA e GUSTO: molto mieloso, speziato, camomilla, floreale. Birra molto buona, che si fa ricordare, soprattutto per il suo mieloso.
