Pours medium gold with a foamy white head. Splashy lace.

Tropical fruit, woody vanilla in the nose with some nice yeasty malt.

nice fruit/booze balance, with tropical notes and grain and booze and a little bitterness. Some vanilla and wood on the palate, light boozy bitter and fruity in the finish. Lovely brew. Very smooth.

Medium body, nice carbonation.

Nice version of the style. Highly drinkable and smooth.

750ml bottle split into two large snifters

Pours pretty clear straw yellow with a nice looking head and lots of carbonation. Head lasts a long time. Smell is Belgian, light and grassy, a little funk, a little sour.

Taste is creamy, slightly sour, some lemony flavor, little or no bitterness, slightly strawy. Maybe a little tiny bit of banana. Sweet.

Mouthfeel is creamy and airy, fluffy. Overall, nice beer.

Certainly lacking originality, but a decently balanced and inexpensive brew.

Med thin body, slick and clean mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Sweet malt presence upfront with notes of candied orange, zesty herbal hops, and a light bitterness.
Notes of sweet apples, grain, and grassy hops throughout.

Abv is well hidden, reminiscent of Duvel but less bitter, carbonated, and dry...

750mL bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear golden color w/ a bright white fluffy head, sticky chunks of lace, steady carb.

Aroma is slightly grainy pale malt, Belgian yeast, subtle floral hops.

Taste is pale malt w/ a hint of crushed aspirin, some yeasty funk, green apple. Slightly unpleasant lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is a little prickly and sharp up front - lacks the smoothness of most bottle-conditioned beers.

Unfortunately this is a one and done for me.

750 ml

A - Pours a light golden to straw color. Very clear, lightly bubbly . Head formation is huge, pearly white.

S - Strong yeast nose, very bready. Not very spicy, not much of the esters either.

T - Starts off very dry, somewhat biting. Mid-stream brings in some quality pilsner malt flavors and some fruity esters. Finishes with quite a bit more of those esters, but a underlying dry and bitterness grips the tongue.

M - Moderate body, strong carbonation. As mentioned above, the dryness grips your tongue. The top of my mouth tingles from the carbonation.

O/D - A decent but probably not truly remarkable Belgian. It certainly satisfies my ache for it however. Not very filling and the abv is manageable.
