3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Almost-can-see-through cloudiness with a big head.
NOSE : honey, lemon juice, citrus, pepper, hay, biscuit, a bit of smoke, orange zest, cottage cheese.
SIP : medium body with strong carbonation. Very easy to drink due to a great balance between sweet biscuity malt and bitter spicy hops. It starts off with sweet and it becomes a bit lactic sour. Becomes more and more dry with cheesy and fruity flavors. The ending is moderately bitter and zest or wood resin like dry. Aftertaste leaves herbal bitter notes and earth.
OVERALL : excellent blond. Easy to drink and well balanced. Dry and bitter the way I like it. And what a great balance. A reference !

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought a bottle at a liqor store in Leerdam. The beer has golden blonde color and a large white head, CO2 level is excellent. In the aroma are tones noticable of unripe fruits and flowers. The taste is very hoppy with light tones of caramel. Also in the taste a light sweetness with tones of unripe fruits. The finish is short and fresh and the bitterness from the hops is long noticable. A very nice strong ale, I reminds me a little of Duvel.

Siinä ja siinä. Aika karvas maku, puolitiehen hyvä. Vehnäinen maku, liian humalainen setti.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow color, sparkling and clear. Intense aroma with yeast and citrus. At first sweet taste "explodes", but the aftertaste is bitter. The palate is great, teh beer has good body and oily texture. Not bad, but i expected more.

Aroma frutado e adocicado. Coloração alaranjada e espuma branca e não tanto persistente. Sabor caramelizado, de frutas, com toque de açúcar. Retrogosto bem açucarado.
