3.46/5  rDev +1.8%

33cl bottle: BBD of 23 Aug 2013, poured slowly into an 'Augustijn' chalice on 13 Jun 2013.

Good golden body, clean and clear: full and deep foam covering on top. Took a while before the head turned into a thinner blanket and then a wisp and collar.

More hops in the aroma than most Belgian beers, peachy and fairly floral in nature.

The taste was also hop fronted, with a sweet fruit following close behind. Slight yeast feel to the flavours with the alcohol also being noticeable in the mouth.

OK, if a little sweet for such a light beer (in ABV and colour).

Looks great. Beautiful top stays until the last drip. Middle brown, bright.

Smell is very fruity: lychee, orange, peach under a toffee atmosphere. Very promising.

The taste is less fruity, but now the creamy, drinkability appears. Nice balance between sweet tones and hop though. The light dry finish is almost perfect. Because of the little overcarbonation it scores somewhat lower at 'mouthfeel'.

This beer looked delectable with its golden appearance and thick, frothy head. However, the smell, dominated by apple and yeast, was slightly off-putting. It tasted very sour (maybe the smell was green apple?) at the front and grainy at the end. Mouthfeel was better than the flavor; this isn't a simple beer. It's just something I wouldn't likely choose to drink again, even though I've had a couple from this brewery that I really enjoyed.

Bronze color, quite rocky and creamyhead.
Fruit smell, candy sugar, herbal notes. Maybe something like ginger.
The taste is sweet, for sure. Fruity notes, again candy sugar. High carbonation.
It is on the border, almost too sweet.
Average body.
Not too drinkable.
