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 .

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
14th January 2012
Very hazy gold beer. Small white head. Light dry palate. Tripel like sweet malts and spice. A little citrus, well buried. Dry finish. Over dry and spicy and no real balance.

Ok, this is simply a new 3 font tick. Oddly limey and acidic. Sawdust and stale

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330mL found in La Bodega in Ontario, CA. No bottle date. Pours an ugly deeper golden. Clear though sediment is caked to the bottom. Head formation enormous with incredible retention and big lacing. Nose is stale and somehow a bit skunky. After breathing a bit the aroma gains honey, pale malt, some sticky candies. Still smells more like a macro import lager. Taste is old, soapy, pretty ripe :/ sickly sweet, cloying, grainy, corn. Feels like macro garbage. Ick. De Proef strikes again.
