330ml bottle. Another localized Belgian name I'll look up later.

This beer pours a cloudy, very pale golden yellow colour, with four fat fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some stellar layered weeping cloud lace around the glass as it gradually recedes - this is one purdy brew!

It smells of semi-sweet bready pale malt, orange cream, zesty yeast, muted coriander, musty pine needles, and a subtle leafy grassiness. The taste is grainy, slightly biscuity pale malt, mildly acrid yeast, subdued, and muddled citrus rind, faint savoury spice, and pleasantly leafy, grassy hops.

The carbonation is quite tight in its closely-held, edgy frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and a bit too acerbic to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes mostly dry, the gritty malt, yeast, and various citrus, flora, and spicy hops conspiring and colluding as such.

A generally agreeable BPA, one who's mantra of 'extra hoppy' is played out well enough, I suppose, for the conservative Brussels crowd, even if this reviewer is a little nonplussed. Easy to drink, the kind of beer that once you get through half of it, all the while relating it via words, you feel the urge to just say, fuck it, close the laptop, and sit back and enjoy it. I only mention this, because that doesn't happen very often.
