too bitter in my opinion and with a big carbonation as unexpected.

Bottle sample at Mondiale 2010. Medium yellow colour with a white head one-quarter inch. Creamy easy mouthfeel. Orange and yeasty aroma. Lace coating as I drink an orange citrus yeasty and spicy melange.A little acidic finish, though not bitter, making it not very drinkable though good tasting. A good Belgian pale nevertheless.

Very white colour in the glass.

Nose is soapy, cheese flavour, not particularly pleasant.

Very bitter on the palate but quite one-dimensional. Like chewing on aloe. Offputting.

I'm not familiar with this style but would not seek this beer out again.

Straw colored, light, with greenish reflexes. A little hazyness. White, creamy, beautiful foam.
In the smell fresh hop, grassy and floral. Hay. Quite dry, with light note of citrus fruit, and a hint of camomile.
Good bitterness in the mouth. A malty start, and then the dry bitterness, with strong citrus fruit notes, grapefruit, maybe.
Good bitterness in the aftertaste too, again citrus notes, fresh.
Pleasant and fresh.
