Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a goblet, unknown freshness date. This pours a slightly hazy, light golden or a yellowish color with a lace leaving small one finger head with long retention and a white color. The smells are great very fruity, lots of ripe banana oranges, bread malts. The feel is medium lots of carbonation. The taste is pretty good lots of fruit and a nice sweetish taste with a long dry finish.

11.2oz. bottle served in a tulip. Lots of carbonation. Poured a pale gold with a huge white head. Some bready malt and noble hops in the aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied. Nice depth of malt flavor with a fair amount of hop bitterness. No real Belgian yeast character. More like a helles bock to me. Easy drinking.

Great beer for the price.

Pour-Nice solid golden haze with a great amount of head on it.

Smell-Had a terrific belgian golden smell not too spicy or too much going on.

Taste-Great taste but kinda of plain a little bit of heavy spices towards the end but not too much.

Mouth feel-Solid and definitely tingling.

All in all I like it. It's a pretty good beer.

Served cold in glass beer challis

A) Brass colored hazy blonde ale. Small but long lasting white sudsy head.

S) Baked sour dough bread. Citrus, Banana & clove.

T) Mild and dry considering the alcohol content. Sweet Belgian malt with muted but bitter hops. Surprizingly refreshing and crisp

M) Well balanced, light with ample bottle conditioned fine carbonation.

O) Hard to find but well worth the effort

So, pouring this beer you definitely need to give it some time for the carbonation to settle...
A clear golden body with tremendous effervescence. The white, fluffy, 2 inch head sits on top like a king's crown, but also showcases various bits of sediment that was sucked up from the bottom or never made it through the head to begin with. Obviously there is emerson's glue style lacing.
The beer's nose is an intense amount of yeast fruitiness with some undertones of sweetness. The taste follows suit with a super fruity, clean tasting golden ale. Alcohol? 8.0? Barely noticeable when it's still cold, but given a little time to warm reveals the beast behind the beauty.
The beer's mouthfeel is very carbonated, but it's not necessarily out of place with a beer that's supposed to be light and drinkable. The alcohol is well masked behind the beer's intense yeastiness and honey sweetness. The aftertaste is a slightly biting and bitter, but it's generally as sweet and fruity as the beer's taste and smell. It's a very clean tasting beer.
Overall it's priced aruond $5/12oz bottle, which is steep, but worth trying. It's nothing that blew me away, but is simple and well made.

33cl. Bottle dated 18/10/14, best before.  Brewed at Bockor brewery. Clear lacing. White head. Lightly hazy straw. Aroma is sweet candy sugary, slight citrus. Taste, light and refreshing. Alcohol perfectly hidden. Dominated by a delicious Belgian yeast flavor with some bitterness, touch of lemon and an ever so slight dash of horse blanket. Tasty. Great beer.
