Well I m gonna keep this short - This is the worst Belgian I have ever had by a stretch! In fact a wide stretch!

The smell and taste was strongly reminiscent of adjunct grains and left a sickly aftertatste that I didn t like.

Upfront was OK with grassy and honey notes and some alcohol but then - the thin sickly taste of corn as known from Budweiser....

A blonde ale with white head that fades. There is aroma of mint (not sure where this comes from), yeast, and some hints of spicy hops. The flavor brings this on in full spirit. I just don't get this one. I rarely say it, but too dry, too carbonated, and yet not awful. There are just too many interesting and tasty elements in this one. I want to dislike it but there's something here that makes me interested.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a huge airy white head that leaves alot of lacing on the glass.

Rather weak smell of green apples and green grapes, slightly acidic, nothing special.

Taste is like the nose, but much weaker, alcohol is noticeable and actually pretty distracting, not very good.

A bit hard carbonatino but the viscosity is okay and crisp.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of white head that fades into a cap with great lacing.

S: Light spice notes up front with some sweet fruits. Light yeasty notes bring up the finish.

T: Spices notes up front with a lot of bready characters with some dry yeast notes as well. There are some slightly tart fruit notes as well.

M: Medium-light body with highish carbonation, this beer is is nice and dry.

O: An alright beer overall, though a bit bland and lacking depth. It has a nice body, but is just boring.

A bright golden beer with a big frothy head and a steady going stream of carbonation going on.

Smell is spicy with notes of clove and and in general phenolic. A malty backbone with doughy and biscuit notes. Some light caramelmaltiness. Hops are invisible.

Taste is spicy with strong clove and exotic fruits. Pretty heavy yeast character for a blond beer. It reminds me of the Leffe Blond, which I do not really like because of the same thing. Malt is sweet and doughy with light colores caramalt, which is a bit nutty. Very low bitterness, drinkability is good.

Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde beer with a huge foamy white head with good retention. Aroma is quite floral with some nice mix of malt and hops. Taste is very refreshing with again notes of malts and hops and some sweet floral notes. Body is bit thicker then expected with a great balance between hops and yeast. ABV is well hidden which is great for blonde beer with 7.5% ABV.

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

330 ml bottle. Lots of yeast visible on the bottom of the bottle. Poured carefully into my tulip glass. ABV is 7,5%.
Beer is golden yellow in colour, with a huge, almost four fingers in height, snow white head, thick at first, becomes soapy in texture after a while and soon end p as a thin film covering the beer.
On the aroma citrus fruits and very hoppy. Notes of green apple and bubblegum too.
Nice crisp taste, bitter from the very first moments. Behind the hops comes a malt flavour, just for a tiny bit though,as the hopsoverpower everything else. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Very dry on the palate, carbonationonly slighty above average and thin to medium body.
Overall a very nice, bittery refreshing beer.

This pours a clear golden colour with a big fluffy white head that hangs around.

It says that it is brewed with Vitamin C and the first thing I get on the nose is Barocca! That blows off to leave some spicy Belgian yeastiness. Maybe some apple.

A lot more apple on the palate. Green apple. Some medicinal notes and the spiciness, pepper? Alcohol only comes in at the end.

Medium bodied with a very high carbonation.

Not the best that these guys produce but still a bloody nice beer,
