L- Pale straw with a slight haze. 1Cm fine-bubble white head.... [interupted]... that right then somehow survived 100% intact my being interupted for 10 minutes - very impressive.
S- It has a spiciness to it (reminds me of a wheat beer).
T- The thing that stands out for me is something akin to sour apple with an earthy tone to it in the middle+finish.
F- Quite bright, spicy. The overall Feel reminds me of a solid German Weiss-brau.
O- Nice but perhaps not distinctive enough to merit buying it again (mail-order) @ £2.39/330ml from BeersOfEurope (UK).

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with stable, froth, white head.

Smells of wild honey, lavender, sour, slightly spicy yeast and some cardamom.

Has a sparkly, mineralic carbonation among a light body. This drinks very easy and is remarkably refreshing.

Tastes of mellow straw, dried garden herbs and a nice, light spiciness, due to the noteable yeast in this. Offers bread dough onwards from the middle part, becoming more spicy with black peppers, cardamom and a whiff of cinnamon. Finishes light and effervescent with a nice aqueous note, some maintaining spices and lots of dough.

An easy summer drinker with a great, well build spiciness.

I can't find my tasting notes, so I recommend words from the master.

MJ's "Great Beers of Belgium" gave this an unusually detailed review calling Stimuli "a heavy yeast sediment; a talc-like aroma; a dens, pillowy, head; sherbet on the tongue; and a palate that develops from peachy fruitiness to lemony, salty, hoppy, dryness."

Platinum with solid meringue head. 4
Field of summer flowers, pencil eraser, soft yellow apple, and mild wood spice - mouth-watering (though maybe a bit of fusels, too?). 4.25
Baguette, yellow pear, some rubbery phenols, lemon balm, and grassy finish. 4
Herbal end and numbing linger.
Light, fizzy, crisp. 4.25

Amazing nose for a humble pale ale. A balancing act between yeasty esters and phenols, not insignificant hopping, and a thread of malt. Carb places this squarely in summer. I wondered why a blonde would have a cult following but I get it now. How to do a top quality quencher. 4.25

Color light yellow, catching orange, clear. Head white, compact, perfectly leaves a mark on the glass. The aroma is a little poor, Belgian spices, orange, whit the basement. The taste is great, orange mixed with coriander, who feel alternately. The beer is very smooth and soft. Unimposing bitterness in the finish, which is associated with the peel of grapefruit and oranges. Saturation medium and alcohol undetectable. Very cool blond.

Hazy gold/orange. Fruity, sweet, a bit of banana, crisp smell. Tastes crisp, refreshing, a faint bit of yeast, but not much else.

330ml bottle at Café De Spuyt in Amsterdam (€4.00):
Very enjoyable from the start, really fresh and lively with a crisp and clean feel that helped it go down remarkably easy. The fruit flavours and touches of sweetness worked well together and the balance of the beer was excellent, this is definitely on that I wouldn't mind trying again.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, grape, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, clove, band aid, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance and complexity; a bit too medicinal. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, floral, grass, light clove/pepper, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, grape, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, grass, floral, light clove/pepper, must, and yeast earthiness. Nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Belgian pale ale. Good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
