(Served in a chalice)

A- The strong pop of the cork yields a huge foam that overflows the glass and keeps oozing out of the bottle. There is a murky yellow body with a racing carbonation of bubbles supporting the thick bubbly white head.

S- The aroma of wet clay and faint green hop hint are all that come through the aroma.

T- The clean flavor has some lemon yeasty notes with a clean finish of carbonic acid.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel but the big scrubbing fizz fills the mouth. There is no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The fizz dominates this beer with soft notes of hops and some yeast character coming through but not much. This beer turns a bit water after the carbonation burns up.

First had: on tap at POPE, Philly, PA

Poured a clear golden color, noticeably carbonated, with a thin, spotty head. Light grainy aroma, floral, and not too strong. Good balance of light hops and pale malts in the taste, slightly grainy, mild sensation of orange zest. Dry finish, and a little funk goingn on towards the middle of the glass. Light body and generally drinkable for those who prefer lighter beers, but not too distinctive, and not something I'd get more than once.

Best before 24-06-05. Poors in nicly givving a nice head that lasts and leaves nice laces at the glas. Futher an opalizing golden beecolor. Nose is quiet flat( maybe cause of age) having some malts but lots of esters giving it a fruity nose and a hint of hoparome. Overal not 100% fresh though. Taste is quiet dull too having some malttaste, quiet sweet, alcoholic and then going into a moderate but litle hanging bitterness. Lots of carbonisation makes mouthfeel more lively and litle better then taste but one was enough for me. No bad beer though.

I split a bottle with my friend at De Hopduvel in Ghent.

Appearance: Served in a frosted glass, so I have no idea if this is clear or cloudy, my guess is lightly hazy. Golden in color with a white head that quickly fades to a sudsy film leaving patchy lace.

Smell: Sweet Belgian yeast fruitiness along with light pepper and light grain.

Taste: Sweet banana and berry fruitiness with a peppery finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: A little too sweet.

I'ts 1 AM in Belgium, just bought one of these from an open store with a limited stock of beer outside my hotel.

A - appearance is a golden yellow color with a nice white head that seems to be sticking around. lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom.

S - smells of malts and yeast... thats about it, hops might show slightly but not much.

T - malty taste to this beer... more hops in the taste than in the nose, but not by much.

M - bubbles at the tip of my tongue, goes down nicely, somewhat clean finish.

O - decent beer, helps that I'm drinking it late at night in Belgium, but compared to other beers isnt anything too special.

On-tap at the Paters Vaetje in Antwerp, Belgium...

A lightly hazy but bright yellow color with a thinnish white head. An earthy, yeastiness in the nose, a hint of herbal hops and some sweetish pale malt.

There is a fairly earthy quality to this blond ale but that's where the distinctiveness ends. Herbal hops but overall a quite sweet blond. Medium bodied with a sweetish aftertaste. Nothing earthshattering but it was an enjoyable and drinkable brew. Worth a shot if you can find it on draft.

Good Summer Ale. Beer poured from tap a hazy yellow color, which just a bit of head. Nothing altogether of note in the smell other than the hops. Taste was fruity with just a slight bit of bitterness. The beer drank easily - light without much carbonation.
