3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought @ beerplanet.be. Pours clear golden with a frothy and fizzy white head that leaves lots of soapy trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is floral and perfume-like with crackers, pear popsicle, pineapple, passionfruit, cape gooseberries, hay, dry soil, lemon zest and hints of dandelions and lemon grass perfume. Taste is slightly sweet, tiny bitter, tiny fruity, lightly floral and slightly metallic with crackers, pears, green apples, hay, lemon zest, sheet metal, cereal, pineapple, cape gooseberries and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly dry, tiny tart, tiny spicy astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and floral with crackers, dried flowers, hay, apple skins, lemon juice, sheet metal and hints of tropical fruits. Quite allright, especially with food.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- pours a clear and bubbly blond with a nice finger of white head. S- almost reeks of Budweiser. A lager-esque funk is coupled with dough, honey, floral notes, coriander, over ripe apples and faint must. M- light to medium palate with a alright effervescent quality and some stickiness. T- taste is sweet to bitter. Dough, ripe apples, honey and some wood up front, that moves to some musty bitter alcohol, and mineral water in the end. Ending is relatively silent and quick overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330mL bottle, pours a pretty clear dull golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavour are petty dull, both giving off notes of Belgian yeast and biscuity malts - not a whole lot else. Very light palate and body, with little character. Drinkable, but there are way better blond ales out there .

Bottled, random purchase to experiment with a non-sour 3 Fonteinen. Clear light gold color with a thick lacy head. Cereal aroma with light apple cider aroma. Straight Belgian pale flavor of grains and a light dry and slightly fruity finish. Simple but refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not really much to say about this. Tastes kind of like malt liquer with some lime zest and pennies... Odd and nod very good.
