look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy golden blonde color. Average to slightly below average sized off-white head.

S - Fairly light with earthy and floral scents. Hints of fruit (mostly apple).

T - Slightly sweet with the prominent flavors being fruity and yeasty flavors. A decent malt base. Slight alcohol warming. The flavors aren't that strong or complex but they taste pretty good.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty crisp taste.

D - I think this is probably where this beer is best. The flavor is slightly sweet but there is a juicy crispness that allows this to be an easy to drink everyday type beer. ABV is the only thing really holding it back.

Note: Nothing outstanding here, but it is a nice refreshing beer. Worth a try but not really worth going to much trouble to seek it out.

A: Straw golden thick looking with chunks of white and dark yeasts, a half finger of white creamy, foamy head.


S: Offal, malt, coconut, snow. Makes me think it will be light and relatively flavourless, in spite of the great label.


T: Sweet, coconut, vanilla cream, very light and creamy with a slight phenolic aftertaste.


M: Medium light carbonation, foamy, dusty, powdery carbonation.


O: Yes, an 8 out of 10 seems appropriate for this brew. Great label, interesting name, and yet it’s a very simple but unique brew. Really not a lot going on, but simplicity sometimes hits the spot for uniqueness. Saw this in Brussels but had no chance to try it due to all the other options. Found this at Yorkshire Bar in Kunming, where the owner gave it to me due to his awesome service skills.

Good head that leaves lines of lace. Grainy gold color and mildly cloudy.

Grainy barley initial aroma. Smells like a macro.

There's an improvement in the taste. The flavor is malty-sweet with far less grain. Very full bodied with a low carbonation. Some alcohol warmth. Low hop that only shows up (weakly) in the swallow. Short aftertaste.

served in perhaps the coolest glassware known to man, this is a very light bodied stronger pale ale. pours hazy and pale, almost white in a dim lit pub, with a lasting white head, sexy looks. smells is less sexy, standard malts and belgian yeast, a little fruity, wheat, lemon rind. flavor is balanced but rather subtle for such a strong brew. its not watery in feel, but the flavor is very light, grassy and drinkable, but largely unexciting. feel is great, classic belgian effervescence and a less than medium body. plenty sessionable in my opinion, despite the invisible 7% abv. overall its a very well made beer, lacking somewhat in flavor, but could be good with a hearty cheeses and breads course. not bad at all.

An acceptable Belgium. Yeast and sugar. Sweet syrup sugar at the start, with a long yeasty finish. Dry aftertaste. Hard carbonation on tongue. Yeast and floral aroma, nothing too strong. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol kicks in, and is masked by the sugar. Smokless Joe's has the dedicated mug . A little more appreciated in bottle had 7 years later.

Pours a hazed golden straw, big cap of frothy white bubbled, ok lacing. Scent is pale, lemony and grassy with notes of musty straw, light spice and some yeastyness. Taste follows suit - ight and pleasent all around. Active carbonations, lighter bodied. A nice drink on a warm summer day, light all around, but no off notes.
