3.7/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy yellow with light orange tint and a stark white head that dissappears pretty quickly and reduces to a ring around the glass that leaves lacing that is mediocre at best.

Nose is on point for a white ale but just seems too faint. Some wheat yeast and a light spice profile.

Taste follows. It's on point for a white ale, but the flavor is just too faint. There is an odd mintiness that arises and this one tastes somewhat stale. Good wheat flavor was there and the spice profile is noticeable, but theres just not alot of beer to back this up, and what there is does seem like its been on the shelf for a while.

Mouthfeel is on point. Carbonation could be just a touch higher, but that my only gripe here.

Drinkability is solid except for the effect the flavor has on it.

Overall an ok white ale, i suspect maybe improperly stored, but i have to review what ive got here. Just bland and kind of stale.

3.41/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle corked and caged poured into a Duvel chalice.

AP: Pale yellow straw colour with a 3/4" fluffy white head that fizzles down to 1/8". Minimal lacing on sides of glass, good head retention.
AR: Like sourdough bread, a bit of lemon and coriander spice, funky yeast, toasted cereal grains, a bit of tart apple and pear.
T: Very bready flavour, sourdough bread and fresh baked baguette loaf. Mild spices of coriander and pepper, but rather faint. The fruit I detected in the nose is also more subdued and more of a background to the breadiness. Yeasty finish and aftertaste.
M: Fairly crisp on the tongue, mild carbonation, off dry finish.
OV: This is definitely a food beer meant to accent certain dishes and styles of food. Can also be drunk on a hot humid Summer day or night and would be quaffable and somewhat refreshing. Just by itself if you're looking to challenge your palate, not so much. Certainly not a bad beer, but rather mild and tame and easy to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a pale clear golden colour with a thick creamy head.

Smells grassy and slightly stale.

Tastes very refreshing, hits the mouth and together with a thick mouthfeel refreshes you. Tastes of light malts with wheat and very slight hops.

Overall a good beer!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Very smooth interesting taste. It was served ice cold and it had a very crisp, refreshing taste. No after taste and it cleared your palate. This is my first review on this site, so my description might be a little thin. Bottom line, you won't be disappointed if you like white or wheat beers. It is the Best White Beer I've had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

not sure yet about this one. my first brew from france. pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a tiny white head. smells a little sour, wheat malts, and some very mild corriander type spice. flavor has a white grape tartness to it, and some other fruity yeast flavors. feel isnt bad, good carbonation and a pretty light body. finish is a little funky with a bit of a stale yeast acidic thing happening, but its not a bad brew. the belgian versions of this style are in another league though...
