Poured from bottle into a tulip glass, light clear golden colour with great retention and lacing, creamy foam cap on it.

A - pleasant yeast and wheaty aromas of bubblegum, estery apricot fruit, banana, a bit of musty yeast notes, a bit woody and floral, dry citrus, some cherry. Spicy hop notes, serious bubblegum aromas though, this fades as it warms though.

T - has a much more complex array of fruity and floral notes with the yeast being a very active contributor rather than a backbone. Notes of pineapple, grapefruit, yellow plums, vibrant florals, with quite a bitter hop contribution leading to a drying citrusy and wheat finish. Tangerine, creamy body, some bubblegum, lemon, very robust with a nice hop forward charcter, I should mention it has a fantastic depth and flavour profile with no perceptible alcohol.

M - as mentioned a very creamy, smooth body, moderate assertive carbonation to really brighten it up, thick fruity yeasty body, very sessionable, and a lingering warmth to it reminds you of the strength. A bit of sharpness on the finish initially, then a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

Seriously impressive beer, the belgian yeast does wonders here combined with the fruity and wheaty base. Light upfront florals and citrusy fruit, but then also a great depth of farmhouse yeast, some tropical fruit notes, and spicy earthy notes. Lovely lovely beer, each sip keeps you on your toes and bring new flavours.
