Bottle served at the legendaey Delirium Cafe. On to the beer:

Slightly hazy in the body of this blond beer. There is ood head retention and some lace whipping around the glass. The aroma brings sweet hoeny and flowers. It tastes like it's been aged some some time, as it has a sweet cidery note to it. There is hoeny , vague fruit, and sugar as well. Medium bodied beer, but with a slight syrupy texture.

It's acceptable right now, however I feel that a fresher bottle would yield a better result.

330 ml bottle. Peach cloudy golden colour, good head that doesn't last long, but leaves some lace and always remains a ring.
Smell of peaches, apple, banana, a bit of spices and tropical fruits. Very impressive. Sweet flavor that leaves your tongue asking for more, body could may be a little stronger, but it's good enough. Taste of apples,spices (pepper?), banana and tropical fruits again. I wouldn't mind to get more of this one.

This beer pours an orange golden color with a dense creamy head that lasts the entire beer. Lots of carbonation.

Smell is estery of the yeast and also fruity. A pleasant light citric hop note. The malt is medium biscuity and 'pilsner' like.

Taste is light sweet and malty with amber malt or light caramalt notes. The yeast adds some great flowery and estery notes. There is also a very faint yeasty off-taste. The alcohol is a bit warm. The hops are delicate and typical Belgian, a little citric and spicy, I suspect Styrian Goldings/Saaz.

Golden blonde. White foam, beautiful at the beginning, but quickly falling, with quite big bubbles.
Golden ale smell: fruity, pear, on a good malty carpet. Then yeast and bread crust. White tropical fruit, and white flowers. Pleasant.
The taste too. With again malt and fruit (pear), and a touch of orange peel. Yeast. Citron? Maybe the alcohol is too perceptible, but overall, not bad.
Round body, medium.
Fruity aftertaste, pera over all, and yeast notes. And some floreal.
