Poured from a 33cl bottle into my affligem chalice. Wonderful light golden color with rich white head. Smells o, bananas and fresh bread. Taste is very good; taste the sweetness of bananas, with some mellowing tartness like pears, the belgian yeast, like a crisp spring morn. Mouth feel is light to medium bodied with some bubbles. Drinkability is good; I could make an evening of one or two of these. Time for some fish and chips now, Mate.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Brass color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a fairly good retention crown & leaves rings on sides. Citric, malty, yeasty & spiced aromas. Malty, sugary flavors & grape hues at first sip. Light to medium. Moderate to high carbonation. Sparkling & dried mouthfeel. Buttery notes, grapefruit hues & some biscuit in the middle. Sweet/slight bitter finish. Memories of Semi-dry Cava -champagne- on the aftertaste. ABV is well hidden.

Bottle: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and light lacing. Aroma of sweet Belgian malt with light peppery yeast notes. Taste is dominated by sweet Belgian style malt with a quite a bit of fructose notes coming through with a peppery yeast note in the finish. Body is light with medium carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Too much fructose notes coming though for my own taste.
