Ale belga modesta, di statura industriale ma comunque buona; credo sia entrata nel giro bièretheque, ce la siamo divisa di fronte ad una classica pizza napoletana a Gorizia in Via Bernini.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. A bit hazy yellow/orange. Big head but the head don’t stay there for long. Nose : strong yeast, floral honey notes. Fruity pear ascending into really delicate cherry. Sip : Dry body with sand (spices) like feeling. Sparkling in throat. Starts little sour and dry. A bit sweet fruity ending. Spicy : clove, pepper and coriander powder notes. Not disappointing but not convincing unless you like spicy blond beers.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows honey, lemon, floral hops, doughy yeast and soft phenols. The honey is incredibly strong.
Same story with the flavours: loads of honey, with doughy yeast and soft spicy hops underneath. The finish seems a bit metallic. Too sweet.
Carbonation is much too high.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Maltainen Riekko, 20110923) The beer poured pale golden and quite clear. Its head was white and quite large. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, hops, malts, yeast, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. Clean and unfortunately too weak flavoured Belgian ale.
