Pours golden hazy beer with a wide white foam head. Smell is complex with wheat notes, some spices, fruits. Taste is great, very well balanced and that 8.0 ABV is not harsh at all. great beer.

S: Orange peel and somewhat citrusy.
T: Hints of banana with some bitterness and even some weird metallic taste.
F: Smooth and a bit bubbly.
O: Usually not big on Belgians, but this is pretty good.

Poured at a Belgian beer cafe.
Head was significant but dissipated relatively quickly. Straw in colour.
Aroma of banana, with a touch of coriander.
Alcohol pretty well hidden to taste, but mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired. Perhaps a tad too sweet for my preference. Very mild bitterness possibly contributes to that impression.

Overall, very drinkable.

Green/gold, cloudy, covering lace.
Medium body, moderate flavor, refreshing mouthfeel, short length but tasty finish.
Low bitterness makes it taste sweeter than it is.
Fruity, soap water, orange, star fruit, yeasty.
Pleasant and elegant.

Chill hazed yellow colored beer with a tall snow white colored head.

Smells of honey and apples with just a touch of coriander. Faint cinnamon scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a honey flavor with banana and apple. Mild coriander but this is no revved up Belgian IPA. Mild bitterness. Faint cork taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a very tasty beer. Highly recommended.

Hazy golden colour, big head that sticks to glass, always a ring on the surface. Smell of ripe fruits, spices, bnanas, maybe coriander. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of fruits, bananas, apples, peaches, some spices, maybe coriander. Palate is more on the sweet side, though ther'e some astringency. Really good.
