300ml bottle, poured into Piraat tulip,
A: Pours a hazy amber, solid white frothy head, effervescent.

S: Honey, light malt, faint yeast, citrus and banana.

T: Smells better than taste, honey, molasses, malt forward and minimal hops and clean taste with minimal aftertaste.

M: Very light, very carbonated, sweet without being syrupy but minimal mouthfeel.

O: Not bad, a very light, fizzy honey flavored blond ale, almost like a lager in its effervescence and light body and taste. Probably a good drink in the summer, low ABV. I prefer their darker, stronger ales, but this is good for the style.

Poured into snifter.
Hazy amber beer with nice white cap, leaving some laces. Aroma, as usually fo the brewery is weak, floral and honey. Solid body of yeasts, biscuits, fruits. Not very interesting, to be honest.

300ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip, consumed during Belgium’s FIFA WC quarter final
with Argentina.

A: Pale golden, slightly hazy, one finger rocky head, good retention, very lively
looking, lots of bubbles.

S: Yeast, molasses, phenols, starch.

T: Follows the nose, slightly watery, sour citrus fruits, on the bitter side.

M: Crisp, well carbonated, light body.

O: A well madeBelgian blonde/pale ale, at six percent its on the
light side but a decent enough mid session beer.
