3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Re-rate 7/12/10: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Dror. Hazy golden with floaties. Sweet aroma of fruits, yeast, sugar and acidic citrus hints. Sweet flavor with some bready pale malt, fruits, honey-ish hints, some yeast and a mildly bitter finish with a bit of citrus. Medium-bodied. Re-rating 3 years later and still getting the same score - then I guess maybe the problem last time wasn’t the tap. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1
Draught. Golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Malt sweetness flavor with notes of fruits. A light to medium body. Very enjoyable and drinkable, but something is missing there. Considering all the praising reviews here, I might try it again sometime, since maybe the draught wasn’t very fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.33 L.
Hazy, golden-orange body with a huge, white head, fully lasting with an excellent lacing.
Moderate malty and hoppy aroma (citrus) with spicy (maybe coriander), honey and fruits (pear and apple).
Moderate-to-heavy sweet floavour with moderate bitter character (which partially balances the sweetness) and a light acidic note.
Medium body with an oily texture; lively carbonation; moderate alcoholic feeling in the finish and light astringency.
Maybe not really complex, but very satisfactory.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured blond with no head or lacing. Appeared relatively uncarbonated. Flavor was surprisingly good, hints of pear, apple and even raspberry. This beer’s presentation really ruined the experience for me though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy, orange golden colour with a good white head. Sweet, fruity and spicy aroma. Fruity flavours, sweet, but with good bitterness as well, leading towards a drier finish. Candy sugar. Hints of coriander. Fizzy, warming alcohol. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33 cl bottle from Systembolaget) Labeled 6.8% ABV. Clear golden color, big white lasting head. Acidic, almost sour, scent; fruity and also sweet with Belgian ale yeast notes. Sweet sugary, also yeast and alcohol taste, some spices. Spritzy high co2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Nothing special and the high co2 makes it tip to the lower end of the scale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Actually ordered a Leffe Blonde, got this instead. Not much of an aroma, malty and yeasty. Slight fruits in taste, carbonation. Not bad, but then I was expecting one of my favorite session beers (Leffe) so I’m not sure this was a fair rating, will have to order it again to size it up better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at Max’s Taphouse in a trappist glass. I chose this beer to close out the day, and got more than I had anticipated. It had a good aroma, mostly with fruity malt, with noticeable pear notes, and some yeastiness. The color was a rich gold, that was mostly clear, with an average-sized foamy white head. The flavor was mostly sweet, only slightly bitter and sour. It had a lively mouthfeel, with a good fizzyness and wetness.
