330ml poured into Russian River Glass

A: Golden, light orange and cloudy with a nice white head. Good lacing, medium to moderate carbonation with small creamy looking bubbles but not too creamy.

S: Citrusie, orange peel, sweet and mainly citrus. Very refreshing smell to say te least.

T: Slightly sweet, bitterness is perfectly balanced with the citrusi sweetness and almost wheat beer like, so smooth and drinkable.

M: Bitterness lingers for a bit, slight booze but well masked by the sweetness. Smooth and refreshing, easy to drink and leaves a pleasant citrus bitterness behind that makes me want to keep drinking.

O: Great beer for this style, great for a hot day enjoying some sun. Refreshing brew that unlike other RR beers, is quite common, which is always a great thing. I would definitely recommend this beer to non-Belgian beer drinkers. Balance is great and drinkable.
