A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a golden color with a cloudy consistency. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

A: An incredibly strong, completely alluring aroma of citrus, yeast, hops, and malt.

T: Tasted of citrus (grapefruit, a lot of it), a bit of yeast, hops (more than I expected), and a hint of malt in the finish. A vibrant, powerful, totally lovable flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth, crisp, somewhat bitter finish. Light-bodied.

O: One of best BPAs I've tried in a while. Easy to drinkable, well made, and very enjoyable.

Enjoyed this brew out of a Belgian Tulip Glass

A: Light copper hue with a huge, white, frothy head that last forever, leaving a great trail, and ending in a solid persistent lace.

S: Sweet Belgian yeast aroma with hints of fruits.

T: Similar to the smell a sweet Belgian yeast aroma is present with a fruity middle that is slightly tart and finishes a little dry.

M: Medium body and heavy carbonation.

O: Impressive Belgian brew - worthy of a try.

Hazy/cloudy orange/copper colour. Weeds, earthy hops, slightly sweet yeast smell, sort of like a heffe-weizen. Tastes more like a bitter heffe-weizen. Uniquely like a Belgian strong meets a German wheat. A slight alcohol finish.

The smell is very dry with clean bitter flavours, some citric notes and a distinct yeasty-phenolic Belgian note. Hints of minerals, hay and sweet bread.

The colour is gold with a tint of orange; the liquid is clear. The three finger head is white and airy. It leaves lots of lacing when it slowly sinks down.

The taste is first very, very dry with some yeast, bread and bitter hops. American hops (citric, tea, bitter herbs) and some Belgian phenolic/yeasty notes. The aftertaste is very dry, almost astringent with some warming alcohol, green bananas/banana peels, bitter herbs, lemon juice and a mild bitterness. Dry, wheat-y, almost Champagne-like flavours in the finish.

The bubbles are few, but they are strong and almost sharp. The liquid is dry and light.

A unique and extremely refreshing dry beer.

Bought a bottle of this on a whim, because the bottle is really cool. Poured into a pint glass, huge head. Smell of grapes and maybe a bit of citrus. Hoppier then most of this style. I really enjoyed it. I knew nothing about this brewery, and still don't but look forward to trying their other beers.

From lalonjadelacerveza. In Grimbergen glass. After dinner. Belgian yeast spicyness with floral hoppy notes, but without losing the belgian character. Well adjusted dryness and carbonation, inviting to next sip.
