330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6%. Pale golden colour, slightly hazy, huge and long lasting white head. Pleasant aroma of Belgian ale yeast with distinct spicy and some fruity notes. The flavour is fairly crisp and moderately spicy, yeasty notes, not very sweet. Moderate hops.

Deep, dark, hazy golden colour with a huge Belgian head. Clove and banana yeast esters on the nose remind me of a weissbier. The taste follows, with notes of pear, biscuit malt, and citrus fruit. The carbonation is lively but remarkably soft in the mouth, which lends to a lovely mouthfeel. Overall a nuanced, flavourful, drinkable beer.

On tap at Mirage in Da Panne, Belgium.

This one is a straight shooter like Jimmy Stewart with a Winchester. Raul didn’t expect the stars - nor should he had. Yep, like watching a puffy cloud when stoned, it simply just did the trick.

Be well, my minions.

11.2oz bottle marked 26-01-2023 poured gently into a tulip glass at just above fridge temp 6% ABV. The beer pours mostly bright light honey amber in color with prolific head production and a constant stream of bubbles rising to the top of the glass. The head is eggshell colored and eventually settles to a quarter inch cap. No lacing despite the persistent head. The aroma is mild with pale malt, Belgian yeast (fruity) and some floral notes. The taste is semisweet crisp honey and pale malt, clovey & peppery yeast and floral, grassy hops. Medium bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with tons of natural carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, excellent. Such a well made and nuanced beer especially at 6% ABV.

Pours a big head, so you may have to be patient. Clear gold, lots of early carbonation action, spritzy. Yeasty and fruity to smell. Sweet and yeasty to drink. Slightly drying, bitter finish. Overall a basic, pleasant European style pale ale.

330 ml bottle poured into a tulip

A- A clear amber with a three finger white head.

S- Apple, pears, some breads malts, slightly herbal, a little earthy. Mildly tart apple and pear notes dominate the nose.

T- Tart, apples, pears, some sweet bread, a little herbal and earthy, more balanced than the nose.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- A solid Belgian Pale Ale, definitely on the fruity/tart side but not in a bad way.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
look: three finger very frothy white head with very good retention and lots of lacing, gold to amber coloured beer, quite hazy, lots of lively carbonation in the beer, little tiny bubbles bursting up the beer.

smell: really not much of an aroma coming from it, but what is there is nice, there’s vanilla aromas, spice, orange peel, a little coriander, some bready biscuity malt, some sweetness, no bitterness to note, not bad, but not much.

taste: more flavours come out when drinking the beer, there’s the initial wave of biscuity malt, followed by an apple/light cider-esque apple sweetness, then floral and herbal and vanilla flavours take center stage, ending with a nice zap of bitterness, while it is still very light and not very flavoursome, it’s quite nice.

feel: very light bodied, high carbonation, dry, champagne like qualities to it, some warming of the back of the throat.

overall: a perfectly nice belgian pale ale, perfect for drinking in the sunny weather ireland is currently enjoying.
