On tap in Antwerp at a random bar . Pours orangish colored with a small fluffy white head . Aroma of yeasty funk and some caramel and bready noted. Flavor is bready caramel with some extra yeast funk, fruit sweetness c and maybe a hint of spice mixed in. Light bodied, crisp, and clean with medium plus carbonation. Decent easy drinking brew.

330 ml. bottle. Gloden to orange colour, with a big creamy white head that sticks to the class and lasts for a good while. Smell of bubblegum, cloves, tropical fruits. Medium body, light palate. Taste is just the same as smell: bubblegum, clove, tropical fruits, spices.

(best before date - L06/03/15 - poured into a balloon)

A: second time having this now - huge, cottony-spongy of foam both times - couldn't pour the whole bottle in the glass... mostly clear, orange-y gold liquid... the head takes a little bit to recede into the liquid... maintains a medium-full, misty cap... fair amount of crystalline, sudsy lace

S: spicy, lightly fruity-estery sweet, vaguely-sulfur Danish lager-like character... faint caramel-kissed peach note in the back

T: like a mildly-drier Leffe Blond with a hint of wholegrain cracker... moderate phenolic spiciness in the finish, as well as a chamomile-like, apple-y note... surprisingly assertive, flowery bitterness toward the end, as well as a residual citrus-pith tartness... has an overall industrial Tripel yeast character

M: roundish, light-medium bodied enveloped in an expansive foamy wash... bit of a tart puckering left on the edges of the tongue... all in all, quite dry

O: not bad... probably wouldn't seek it out to savor on its own... maybe best suited as an on-the-go or happy hour beer... curious to pair it with the cheeses listed on their site - I can see it pairing nice with a sharp, salty type

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of fruits, yeast, malts. Taste is also malty and fruity, some alcohol is present, refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, at 6.5%abv.; BB 07/08/14, served chilled in a stemmed goblet.

Appearance: pours a very clear, dark golden colour coming with a thin off-white foamy head and rather light but constant carbonation.
Smell: light-coloured prune-dominated aroma, edged with very pale malts, sweet lemons or Goldings’ aroma, and a weird old-rusty note. Besides these elements, even after a very good swirl is there very little to come through. Not nice and very simplistic.
Taste: quite fizzy, the taste is bitter-sweet and lightly estery & acidic-fruity, featuring light-coloured (lager) malts, dried grassiness, lemon-ness, prunes, overripe fruitiness (types unknown), as well as a semi-dry and chewy-spicy palate of hop bitterness to linger in the finish, along with a belated entry of alc. warmth.
Mouthfeel & Overall: really very normal, mundane, and slightly watery at the end of each sip, this sufficiently refreshing, albeit quite fizzy, medium-bodied pale beer doesn’t show a properly complex flavour profile, or maybe being simplistic and its almost Pilsner-like quality is what it meant to achieve. Alas, this is not my cup of tea.

I think I had a wrong bottle or something.
There was a lot of head. To much carbonation in the beginning.
After a while when the carbonation was fewer the taste of the beer was really watery and light.
An abrupt finish and not a very special taste.
I should try this one again cause I think it can score better than this experience.
