Pours a golden blonde colour with a white foamy head. Aromas of citrus, yeast & malt. Tastes of citrus, apple, cereal, herbs & wheat. Aftertaste is of a light fruity bitterness.

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.
