A lovely hazy, deep blonde with hints of reddish amber and a thick champagney head. The smell is explosive, a strong herbal hop presence and wonderful sweet grain aroma, also some slight skunky sourness and phenolic alcohol tones in the back. The taste is as crisp as any beer I have ever tasted, a huge amount of carbonation stings the tongue and the palate opens to fresh herbal hop melody and estery light fruit yeast character. Very well balanced and as refreshing as any beer one could put up against it. The mouthfeel is superb, absolutely perfect for what is being attempted, massive amounts of crisp carbonation and an extremely dry finish to let the glorious hops finish the show.
Overall, this is a superb ale, not ordinary by any means, but just downright delicious and refreshing as hell. Just another reason to love those belgians.
