A: The beer is crystal clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that settled down, but left a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass, thick lacing and a collar around the edge of the glass, and a thin layer of bubbles on the surface in between.
S: Light aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of spices.
T: The taste has flavors of cracker malts intertwined with Belgian yeast and slight bits of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer is a little too malty compared to other beers in the style.

Dark gold; spice + grass with a touch of herb + flowers; lager grain, touch of candy sugar, hints of anise, pear, + bubblegum, then a big Noble hit; crisp + clean.

Straight nose: big hops, low on esters. Same for the taste - almost a Belgian IPA. Some depth, yet drinkable because it’s balance like an acrobat. That sly quality that Belgium does so well. I see why this has a following.

Served from a bottle into Antwerp Beer Passion Weekend 2011 stemware in Antwerp, Belgium in June 2011. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and bad retention. Colour is a clear yellow.

Sm: A light aroma of plain dull boring barley. Meh.

T: Purely simple barley with some slight cream. No other notes are notable. Bland. Balanced in its simplicity but poorly built for the style. Dull and boring.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but strangely coarse on the open. Doesn't complement the style, but it works for the beer. That said, it's not a special mouthfeel.

Dr: Pretty crappy. It's drinkable enough but far from worth its price. I certainly wouldn't get it again. A poor offering from Bavik.
