Bottle at the great pub Maes aan de Dender.
Big foamy head forces to stop pouring, 3+ finger head fades slowly with a pillowy column, layers of lacing, clear golden pils color, column of bubbles.
Nose has nice golden malts, Belgian, bit of wit like but not much, mostly blond, bit of a chewy grainy malt, mild sweetness.
Taste brings blond malts, Belgian character, white beer like but no real wheat, sweet golden malts, mild straw and hay, character that feels it should have booze but doesn't, very light grain and straw, very crisp, mild grassy hops. Semi dry finish but sticky, lingering light hops and golden malts.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of carb, crisp.
Overall fairly interesting, light and crisp but nice malty flavors, tasty.

beautiful thick medium bubbled head that lasts forever and leaves a thick lacing with clear golden body and lots of carbonation
smell of lemon and orange, yeast
taste of belgium yeast, gentle bitterness and some sweetness
foam incredibly light; carbonation is felt but much more gentle than it looks therefore not as refreshing as I thought
It is a really beautiful, fine beer. But also the taste and smell are quite good for just 5% of alcohol and the style. This would be the perfect beer served at posh events for those who prefer a beer over champagne or would like to go lower on the alcohol. This one is classy beer and I see non regular beer drinkers enjoying it. Huge recommendation!
While I am sipping the last bit, this incredible foam is still there. Wow.
