look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Light and quite clear for the style, light soapy head.

S - Citrus and a little banana or melon, hint of clove and maybe a little toffee.

T - Light, citrus and banana at first, mild hop balance but major lemon flavors towards the finish.

M - At the risk of overusing the word, 'light,' mild, very drinkable. Little aftertaste of any kind.

Overall - This is a quick review because it's a quick beer. Solid when it's warm out and you're in the mood for an easy drinking belgian. It's certainly not better than the bigger belgian brewery's better offerings, but it's perfectly acceptable.

Best by Sept notched on label.

Pours golden with a thin head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of mild bubblegum with citric spicing.

The taste is of light bubblegum with citric and light floral notes. Semi-sweet turning semi-dry in the finish.

Medium carbonation with a light-to-medium body. Smooth.

Not a bad brew. Nothing special, though. Easy enough to drink with a light "Belgian" character.
