Bottle consumed at Gainesbar in Kortrijk. Served in a La Trappe glass. On to the beer:

A short cream head is formed top this very pale yellow beer which looks like its color has been washed out. Forget looks, it's about flavor. The aroma brings a good omen, as wonderful orange cream, lemon, and coriander notes tickle the nose. Can it tickle the palate as well?

It does. The flavor is soft and very pleasant. A lemon/orange note provides a stable flavor throughout the beer. A kiss of gum and pleasing spice notes add extra layers to the beer. It sounds simple, but together makes an overall taste that I like. It's soft in mouthfeel, light, and somewhat crisp.

Good wit, and also a great thirst buster. These Dutch monks got it right with this offering.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Orange color, slightly hazy at the beginning and milky at last pours. Thin head.
Predominant tropical fruits aroma and yeast, notes of wheat and cloves.
Incredibly refreshing with a spicy feeling. Citric flavor of non-sweet oranges, mild on condiments and with hints of yeast. Clean aftertaste, a bit fruity.
A touch lighter than its counterparties in terms of complexity or flavor strength, still very quaffable.

On tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap
