A. There are a lot of small bubbles coming up the side. It leads to a white bubbly head that leaves some lacing. It has a light caramel color. It is completely opaque.

S. It has a thick, grassy, lemon hop scent.

T/M. This has a beautiful, grassy belgian taste to it. It's a mild lemony hop taste, with a good malty smoothness. There's a grape, or dark fruit, undertone to it, but it has a nice celery/grassy taste. Carbonated and medium-to-full bodied, but refreshing.

O. I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was flavorful and refreshing; nothing was over the top and there was a nice balance. (589 characters)

Poured from tap at the Avenuie pub in NOLA into tulip. Pours a hazy golden, heafty head and thick lacing. Smells of wheaty hops. Taste is of again wheaty hops and a bit of fruity bite. Slightly bitter but smooth and creamy. Really nice brew and pumped I got to try. (265 characters)

This beer was sick.

Poured a clear yellow with a foamy white head that attached to the sides of the glass.

Big floral and spicy belgian yeast nose. Lemon/citrus, grassy, white pepper.

Taste was so refreshing. Light bready malt. Not much sweetness. Bitter, floral, and grassy hop finish. Spicy belgian yeast and lemon zest in between. Crisp and dry all day. So simple yet so good. (382 characters)

From the bottle at 't Brugs Beertje in Brugge during last week's trip to Belgium.

Served in a De La Senne cervoise.

Pours a hazy gold with a big, foamy white head. Lots and lots of lacing. Seems like I'm saying that an awful lot lately.

The nose brings some grassy and floral hops along with a bit of citrus and straw. Flavor is all about the hops, though there's some light pale malt in the background. Good floral character and slightly earthy with some citrus. Light body and good carbonation. Very delicate with a dry finish. (538 characters)
