An 11.2 ounce Euro bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - A rusty orange color. Big lumpy head made up of very fine bubbles.

Smell - Sour. Fruity.

Taste - Big sour flavor. Grapefruit. Taffy. A slightly bitter, dry finish.

Mouth - Fizzy. Alive.

Overall - This beer is big and complex. If you're into Belgian sour ales, this is a must have!

330ml bottle poured into a Troubadour glass

Look: Golden straw yelllow, slightly hazy, with immense amounts of head kept going by some fairly wild carbonation. Major head retention with some fairly dense lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: A mixture of citrus and honey with definite hints of yeast. Some floral, spice and alcohol notes as it warms up.

Taste: Follows the smell - definite yeast and citrus up front with malt, hops and honey in the finish. Despite being quite sweet, it's not at all heavy. Although some alcohol is noticeable in the finish, it doesn't taste at all boozy.

Feel: Good, rounded feel - not at heavy and a good balance between yeast, malt and hops. Fairly vigorous carbonation to begin (hence the head) but settles down and avoids being unnecessarily fizzy.

Overall: A good example of why Belgian beers are just so damned good - it doesn't taste like something with 6.5% alcohol and the flavours that are present are exquisitely balanced. Definitely one of my go-to blonde/pale ales.
