Cloudy, smells of honey mixed with hints of marijuana, yes you read that correct. Lots of carbonation. Flavor lasts quite a while. Great Belgian beer. Definitely a beer to try.

Cloudy yellow with a massive pure white head that leaves heavy rings of lacing.

Pine boughs, juniper berries and sugar in the nose. Watery, piney bitterness in the taste. Light bodied with just enough carbonation.

The perfect session IPA? IDK. It certainly does the trick in Brussels.

Pours a cloudy straw color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of slight Euro yeast, pale malt, citrus hops, hint of floral hops, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of a Belgian Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with a high carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, hint of Euro yeast, pale malt, floral hops, hint of spice. slight pine, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, floral and citrus dominate aroma and body, too carbonated, and the blend is quite good.

The beer comes in a medium to deep gold, with a pillowy cloud like head floating on top of the beer.

This bottle specifically immediately smelled skunked, assuming from issues of mishandling. Citrus, floral, crackers, dough hints of spice.

The beer drives of supple and lightly chewy doughy and crackery malts while prickling the tongue with its effervescence. A hint of acidity of lemon, but leaning towards the sweetness of dessert Meyer lemon. With spice throughout and a cedar woodiness hitting on the finish.
