3.7/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a dark golden color. Fairly opaque, thick looking. Strong pearly white head but it is breaking down quickly.

S - A mostly yeasty nose, lots of esters and a bit of white pepper background. Pulls the Belgian card, no doubt.

T - Starts off smooth and sweet, just a little pilsner sweetness. Turns to esters quickly, breaking in with frutiness. Finishes clean and smooth with just a little of the citrus flavors hanging on. Turns very dry in the finish.

M - Moderate body and a strong carbonation. Very champaign like. A little sweetness, but not much alcohol warmth.

O/D - A nice nd easy drinking belgian.. Alcohol is up there but managable. Heavy from all the carbonation. Fits the summer beer to a tee.

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

A: Pours a clear golden color with a 2 fingers fizzy head that turns quickly into a thin film

S: Smell is fruity esters, yellow fruits (peach, banana), citruses, yeasts.

T: Sweet caramel malts make a good balance to the hoppy character of this beer. Quite big alcohol presence and lots of residual sugar. Dry aftertaste.

M: Light bodied with a huge carbonation. Easy to drink despite the alcohol presence.

O: The brewer advises to compare the evolutions of this beer from 3 to 18 months of maturation. This one has been drunk young (3 months) and is pleasantly hoppy and fruity. Should age well given the sweetness and yeastiness.
