L: pours a deep and cloudy golden color. Gives a nice top of of head when i pour and leaves big lacings on the sides of the glass.

S: Gives a aroma of peaches,apples, citrus,sugar, bisquits,toast and flowers.

T&F: Starts of sweet with fruity tones, gets some light malts in the background, gets more notes of spices inn the middle, and it finishes off with a dry sweetness, the aftertaste has a decengt lenght to it . The feel is creamy and smooth with medium carbonation.

O: all inn all i think it,s a farily good,easy driking and enjoyable beer, but nothing overly exiting about it. Lacks that little extra to make it a topshelf beer

Gift from Alonso's father. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 2x08. Nice, but a bit more sweetness is missing. Herbal bitterness. Dry and a bit soapy. Best bio beer ive taken so far. And gluten-free!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy golden yellow with a large thick white head. The aroma is earthy wheat. The flavor is an acidic blend of wheat and possibly hops. An average beer.

A: Golden and hazy with lots of carbonation, 2 fingers of whipped cream, dense, long lasting off- white head.


S: Grassy, floral, light malts, peaches.


T: Buscuity with light sweetness, floral, light peachy fruitiness.


M: Medium, bready, both foamy and solid soda like carbonations happening simultaneously, creating an interesting texture.


O: Impressed by all 3 of these Bio’s I’ve had. Thought it wouldn’t be so good so have avoided trying them. Got in Chiang Mai, drank December 17th, 2014.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled 5/2013. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, biscuit, light honey, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian blonde ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
