Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The aroma has some tart lemons in it, as well as some biscuit and bread malt and a little bit of sugar. The flavor is similar, with a little bit of tartness from the lemons, as well as some yeast, wheat and bread notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Paasbier - Easter Beer! I had this beer several weeks after Easter. It's a golden colored liquid with a slight haze and a simple white head. The smell is intriguing: light and airy aroma, with a modest pale malt scent. There's a lot of barnyard funk and sourness in the aroma, almost becoming the centerpiece of the beer (not really expected, but not quite bad either). The smell also has a bit of apricot...I'd heard that the beer is brewed using dried fruit as an ingredient. The taste is quite sweet, with considerable pale malt presence. There's less acidity than the smell would indicate, although there is an omnipresent tartness. Low hop flavor and bitterness. Moderate mouthfeel, smooth and nice. All in all, this is an okay springtime beer.

this is the third beer I've had from Brouwerij 't Gaverhopke and all three were very nice. This one did not disappoint.

A - Golden and slightly hazy. It had a pretty thin head that was gone all too quickly.

S - Sour, with a bit of barnyard funk , citrus and green apples.

T - Mildly sour, unripe green apples, bit of the barnyard, but not as funky or sour as it smelled. Nothing too complex but very refreshing and tasty. Very clean and dry aftertaste that kept the palette refreshed and ready for more. Reminded me slightly of Orval without the amazing depth and complexity of the wonderful Trappist ale.

M - This, to me, is where the beer takes off! Low carbonation (for a Belgian). Super smooth, and has that blood like consistency that you find in a very nice red wine or port. This was completely unexpected but very welcomed!

D - I could drink this all day and night and still want more. I will be buying more.
