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

A-Nice light yellowish color; looks refreshing

S-Very Fruity (Lemon, apple, orange hints)

T-Bubbly; some pine notes, and candie-ish to my taste

M-A bit too much on the carbonation...almost thought I was drinking shandy

O-its decent, I'll drink this beer again but not seek it too often.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - golden pour with small bubbles of carbonation. No lacing and foam settles fast.

S - Scents of syrupy fruit, candy sugar, and pastries.

T - Sweet fruit flavors in the initial sip. Some bready notes from the yeast. Slight bubblegum notes in the finish.

M - Balance is perfect. Easily sessionable, a great cordial after a meal, or a sipper. Leaves a slight dry feel on the tongue.

O - Really solid beer and the torchbearer for this style. Must try for those that appreciate Belgian styles.
