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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from 3F bottle shop. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is sweet fruit... yellow plum, nectarine and banana as well as dough, spice and faint butter. The taste is grass, straw, spice, dough, some bitterness, unripe banana, yellow plum, white sugar and alcohol, with a very dry finish. Light-medium body and lively carbonation. Not really enough body to carry the alcohol. Run of the mill blonde Belgian ale.

33cl bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a deep, clear, yellow color with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, banana. Medium on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, spicy Belgian yeast, clove maybe, some grassy hops, with a dry, spicy finish. A nice Belgian blond ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours gold with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of mixed light stone fruit and mild yeast/spice. Full bodied. Flavor is very light stone fruit, with some fruit sour, maybe a hint of banana ester, and some earthy/spicy bitterness. Finishes mouth smackingly tasty. Partly because it seems a bit astringent. No regrets. Good brew.
