I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with two fingers worth of head. Good head retention and a fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Grain and floral aromas with a little hint of citrus.

Taste- Sweet malt flavors with notes of honey and citrus and a little bit of banana.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, smooth, and crisp. Sticky feel after the swallow with a lingering sweetness.

Overall- A well balanced, good tasting beer. The flavor reminds me of a cross between wit and a hefeweizen.

Light golden colour with pretty good head retention and lacing, smell has some fresh apple, yeasty and lemon notes, banana bread. Taste has a clean feel, sweet apple, and stone fruit, light plum, lot of crisp malt, a firm bready yeastiness, a touch of warming pepper on the finish. Balance is pretty good but not much depth here. A refreshing yeasty bite though. Mouthfeel is full with a fair bit of carbonation, light mild bitter finish, finish is a bit messy. Overall its a refreshing easy drinking Belgian pale, fresh and fruity, but not that complex, not inspiring but drinkable.
