look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - poured a hazy copper gold, medium sized head that dissipated fairly quickly

S -Orange and slightly sweet malt and hops

T - Very smooth, strong florally hops, sweet malt and coriander. Very light in flavour

M - Light, highly carbonated, quite dry

O - As as the style goes, this wasn't bad at all. This is a light, dry, but very drinkable beer. A bit watery and light for my tastes, but not bad if this is what you're looking for.

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

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a low amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin ring collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has flavors of spicy hops and a light amount of bitterness and hints of pale malts. Notes of yeast are also perceptible. Bitterness and spicy flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't match up to some of the better examples of the style but is pretty good considering it is organic.

330ml bottle served in my La Trappe chalice.

A: Pours a pale and bit cloudy yellow colour forming a small bubbled white head. Low retention but with a thin layer that lasts for long time. Some few lacing left

S: Nice aromas of flowery hops. Belgian Trapping style yeasts. A bit malty and spicy too (notes of orange zest)

T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet malts upfront. Strong notes of flowery and bit citrus hops. Belgian yeasts giving some bread notes. Orange zest. In overall, a dry taste, a watery body and a reasonable bitterness

M: Very light and watery body with low carbonation. Aftertaste is mainly flowery hops bitterness

O: Very smooth and light beer. Quite good drinkability. Recommended

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a pale slightly cloudy straw colour with a nice white head that reduces to a lacing film.

S - Really nice aromas of hop and spices malts with yeast.

T - Up front some nice spice and hop followed by some spice and malt, the finish is a little watery.

M - light body with minimal carbonation, a little thin.

O - At 4.5% this is a very good beer with plenty of flavours. Perhaps a little thin.
