Dark amber color, yet fairly transparent. A substantial head with lively carbonation.

The smell is distinctly of malt, with a bit of sourness in the background.

As the smell, the taste is dominated by malt. Yet, there are hints of floral, grass and vanilla. The feel is light and drinkable, just what you need for a biking trip through Belgium.

Overall, this is a delightful beer. Light, drinkable and sufficiently complex. Pretty much the perfect reflection of the brewery as a whole.
