Appearance - Poured from. 33cl bottle into a tulip glass. Great huge foamy head. Maybe three fingers. It was pillowy and tons of lace down the glass.
The beer was crystal clear honey Amber.
Smell - Tons of amoma of a pilsner?
Taste and mouth-
Super clean mouth finish. Just enough carbonation to leave a little tingly feeling.
This was not as crisp as others I've had, which were more champagne like.
Overall - this is still one of my favorite belgim beers

A - Pours a thick fluffy head with good retention and nice lacing. Color is vary light yellow, slightly hazy but very little. Heavy carbonation.
S - Floral, sweet, boozy, citrus notes, grassy notes. It's all there. A lot of smell here and a lot of different things going on. The main notes are the boozy, sweet, and grassy notes.... I think. Hard to pick just a few notes out.
T - Light, crisp, and very well balanced. I was a little worried by the smell that this would be too sweet for me, but the sweet boozy smell does not overpower the flavor at all. While still detectable, this beer is very smooth and drinkable. The grassy and citrus flavors come through the most, in an excellent balance.
M - Light and crisp, very good. The high carbonation works well here.
O - This is an excellent beer and easy to see why it is the standard for the style. While not something I usually go for, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I was worried from the first sniff that I wouldn't like this, I thought it would be too sweet and boozy for me, but it definitely is not. Very well balanced and smooth. This is a beer that is good because there is not that big punch of flavor, just a very well crafted and balanced beer. Well worth the try and the hype.
