look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden color with a huge fluffy head with good retention and apparent carbonation.
Sweet fruity aroma with predominant notes of Cointreau liquor, sour dough and apricot, mildly herbaceous.
Flavor with notes of herbal hops, ripped oranges, coriander, lemongrass and pears. Dry aftertaste with a mild but relatively higher bitterness.
Light to medium body with very active carbonation. Alcohol of 5.9% abv is well hidden and a complement to its flavor.
Above average Belgian Blond Ale given it is well attenuated and not too sweet with a somewhat relatively higher hop addition, all making it less cloying.
It does age well.

Pours golden, almost clear, fluffy two finger head that lingers for a while, sticky lace and some traces left afterwards.
Smell of bread dough, some kinda sour citrus, touch of Belgian hops, coriander, and a big floral note.
Taste starts with acidic fruit, lots of apple and pear, some oranges (with peel) bringing in some sourness, all of which gets stuck straight into the fluffy bready malts. Some hints of acacia honey, floral and spicy herbs follow, with coriander, pepper, faint juniper berries and lemongrass, even some hints of spruce. Grassy hops in the finish, more than mildly bitter, but not totally appealing.
Medium body and carbonation. Yeasts dominate the aftertaste, a bit muddled and chaotic, also some lingering malts.
It was ok, but a bit chaotic and definitely in need of some balance.

Nice blond color with a very strong carbonation. Almost impossible to poor it in the glass with all the foam.

Thee beer itself had a nice bitter flavor. It tends more towards and IPA and less to a Belgian blonde. The bitterness is very dominant and I miss the full, round flavor that other Belgian blondes have. Not what I expected, but overall still a nice beer.

It pours a slightly hazy yellow with no head or lacing.

The first I notice is a strong smell of bread and sour dough, it took me a few moments to get past that and smell some wheat, citrus and fruity smells in there.

The taste is much more balanced, still some sour dough in there but it doesn't overpower the beer like it does in the nose. The rest of the flavours also follow the nose, citrus and fruitiness with a good dose of yeast.

Mouthfeel is nice and light, refreshing and easy to drink. Easily the best part of the beer.

Overall this is a nice brew but nothing special and the overwhelming bread and dough smells in the nose hurt the beer's drinkability.

First had this beer in De Bierboom, one of my favourite bars in Brugge. The correct glass is a wonderful horn shape and comes in a wooden holder, very impressive. This 33cl bottle however was poured into a Duvel glass.

A small amount of sediment left the bottle, so my pale golden beer had a very slight haze to it, on top a pure white foaming head sat majestically.

Citrus aroma, the sour type, lemons and grapefruits.

The taste is also dominated by those aforementioned citrus fruits, giving the beer a tart, refreshing, tangy feel and flavour.

The beer had a best before date of 8-2013 and was in good condition, being well carbonated and spritzy, the head producing some heavy lacing as the beer level sank down the glass.

A little too sour and citrusy for my tatses, but it is a pleasant enough beer and I remember enjoying it more out of it's own horn than I did during this review.
