Drank from my Mane tulip

A - Pours a cloudy dull honey colour with a white head that dies quickly.

S - bits of yeast, lemon and bread with some sweetness.

T - Similar to smell but the yeast and malt is far more present.

M - Terrible. Too thin and not enough carbonation.

O - Spoiled by the mouthfeel. not recommended.

750 ml bottle into chalice, best before June 2015. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, peach, apricot, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, floral, light honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, peach, bread, light honey, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, peach, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, floral, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present on the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian blonde ale. All around good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

750ml bottle. Pastoral Belgian farmhouse brewing imagery depicted on the label.

This beer pours a cloudy, fine sediment-strewn, tarnished golden hue, with three fingers of tight, puffy, bone-white head, which leaves a consistent wall of pock-marked lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of grainy malt, tropical fruit, some more domestic peach and apricot notes, oil of attar, and soft leafy, earthy hops. The taste is more wheaty up front, the graininess taking a big step forward, some edgy citrus peel, a subtle orchard fruitiness, some peppery, clove-like essences, and floral, leafy hops.

The carbonation is rather laid-back, and sedate, the body on the light side of medium weight, and a tad prickly, but not so much so as to deter the overall smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the wheaty grain showing us some sugar amongst its more usual edgy character, the spices slowly petering out.

An agreeable Belgian pale ale, the purported strength quite well obfuscated amongst all that understated spice and fruit, I suppose. Anyways, easily drinkable, to which my mildly surprising empty bottle is testament. Now, off to see Iron Maiden - up the Irons!

Beautiful dense foam and lace. Fresh aroma of citrus hops in the nose. It reminds both the Orval and Seasons Hennuyères. There are also floral aromas. Also very malty but with a strong hop bitterness that lasts dry mouth. Background of hazelnut. Well balanced, combines the flavors and easy on the palate.

An orange beer with crude head. Clear.

Smell is amazing, lots of exotic fruits, mango, pineapple and some melon. The malt is biscuity and a little doughy.

Taste is different than the smell, there is the pineapple and mango, but also pear and lemon. Body is light and the beer is not overly sweet. Maybe the body is a bit too light. The malts are really biscuity. A low bitterness to round things of.

Light orange in color, slightly hazy. Beautiful head, white, creamy, compact.
At the nose flowers, camomile, white peach. Yeast. A very fresh smell, light and delicate.
At the taste apricot, pineapple, and a light citrussy. Again flowers, camomile, and a light honey note. Hay. Yeast.
Citric aftertaste, then peach again.
Very well balanced, and very drinkable.
Light in body, high drinkability, even with the 7 ABV.
Good.

Bottle: Poured a slightly dirty yellow color ale with a big foamy white head with good lacing and retention. Aroma of spices and floral hops. Taste is semi-sweet malt with light spices and floral hops bouquet is really interesting. Finish is drier then expected with an above average body and no alcohol detected. Very fine example of a Belgian pale ale and way better then its brune counterpart.

This beer was golden amber in color and provided thick head that diminished rather quickly leaving fair amounts of lacing..
The smell was light and fruity with a hint of malt. The taste was complex with a fair amount of hops. There was a strong fruity finish with hints of apricot and pepper. This beer had thin crisp body with a hint of alcohol. Malt was mild, but intensified in flavor upon the second pour of the pint.

No freshness date. Clowdy blond beer with a snowwhite head that lasts quiet ok. Nose is very spicy and pepperyand good maltyness. Further a fruity; apricot, paradijszaad and Reine Claude plum note and a clean stablesmell Taste has good matyness with wheat carracter, drybitter kininelike and a orangenote. Aftertaste has good bitterness and a litle roast touch. Mouthfeel is good, right carbonisation but maybey litle watery. Easy drinkable and enjoyable brew.
