Pours a copper amber with a large lasting beige fluffy head with good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bready , biscuit malt and some fruity notes. Taste is of Belgian yeast and bread, some slightly zesty fruit flavors with some mild citrus. Palate is a medium body, with mild carbonation. The finish is Belgian yeast and bread notes, mild zesty fruity flavors with some light bitterness. A good Belgian blonde ale with food or on its own.

On tap served in a branded chalice - small cafe/brasserie in Vieux Lille - I did not catch the name.

Appearance: Clear gold, big thick rocky head – tons of persistent lacing on the glass. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Slightly hoppy, herbal. Some fruits come through with a swirl.

Taste: Crisp, more hoppy than malty. Hops are herbal, grassy – clean bitterness. Some malt underneath and some of the classic Belgian flavors, but definitely a more hop forward ale.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, not too sticky – evaporates off the teeth after a bit – quite nice.

Overall / Drinkability: Very drinkable, and went well with food (crepe with ham and cheese). Had a second one and enjoyed it as much as the first. Definitely more hoppy than some Belgians I've had recently, but it works.

One of my favourite Belgian Ales, has a lovely golden clear appearance, lovely foamy head and crisp mouthfeel. Taste is typical of the Belgian styles I've had but is still distinctly unique.

My only complaint is that we only get the small bottles imported to RSA.

Best before 4/2013.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, pineapple-like fruit, and slight yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
