This might be my favorite Haact beer, though that's not a tought statement to make. Found on-tap in Ghent at the town's smallest cafe. This beer tastes like what Blue Moon is trying to be. There's a rich (but not too heavy) fruity berry and melon taste followed by a mix of Belgian spice and finishing with dry biscuit malts. Delicous. I think I might go back and have another.

33cl Bottle in The Green, Brugge on 31st Jan 2014: this isn't very special to be honest.

The bar was advertising this heavily so I got sucked in to have one.

Orange to amber body, clear: white head that refused to hang around.

Sweet lager like brew in looks, smell and taste: struggled to enjoy it, luckily the company was good and I could palm some off to the wife and friends.

Disappointed, bog standard Pilsner/lager with nothing to set it apart from all the rest. Gets an average score throughout because that is what it is, average.

Nose gently malty and sweet. Simple enough in taste, just a little sugar and candied to boost a little mouth. Still quite malty flavor. Finally, more pleasant than Martin's Pale Ale but less grassy. Finally, it is more than one average copy of the Bass. Fairly easy to drink but a fairly blatant lack of flavor.

Bottle poured into a Speciale 1900 goblet in Ghent, Belgium. Reviewed from notes.

A: No real head at all. Amber colour.

Sm: Very light amber hops. That's it. A bit bland.

T: Amber malts, hops, and a simple barley only finish. Balanced but hardly bold. Built decently I guess. This beer was quite a disappointment.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Complements the body in a general way.

Dr: Drinkable, but rather average. Well priced by Belgian standards, but fairly low ABV.
