3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an enjoyable Belgian Ale, but there’s little to distinguish it from the other thousands of these here in northern France. It pours a transparent gold, the alcohol is well hidden in the nose and in the taste. It is mostly malty, very carbonated, and a bit watery. Most of these Belgians have a bit of what one could perhaps describe as "saltiness" in the finish.

(bottle) Bottle conditioned? Well, there is almost no trace of sediment; a bit sweetish, has a good spicy character that makes it interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate:
Not really my thing at all but for what it is I think it’s fairly decent. On the darker side of golden. Melon and banana in the malty aroma. Toffee flavour with a very slight tartness that is a plus point. Nice crisp finish. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks Matt. However, I could have lived without this one. Huge creamy white head with a hazy straw colored body. Excellent lacing. The aroma is corny, skunky, and sour. Perhaps a bad bottle? Anyway, the flavor almost comes off as stale and yeasty. Light Belgian yeast spiciness. The palate is medium bodied and boring. Swing and a miss...

Bottle at Addison Oktoberfest. Very foamy head on a honey body. Nose-spicy like a good Belgian, bready, some banana and clove. Taste-metal, sharp, some light banana, yeast. Really nothing about this stands out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
light golden color w/ a large white head well laced. Smells sour w/ hints of some stale sugars and corn. palate is over carbonated and odd. Flavor is not very good budwieser plus candied sugars... no good.
Thanks for sharing I guess Matt.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl bottle from Carrefour. Golden beer with thin white head. Some yeast/citrus/candy sugar/caramel aromas. Not great in mouth with over carbonation. Slightly metallic. Candy sugar dominates then harsh hops. Not a good construction and poor balance

This one is tough because I’ve had different experiences without.
However, let get on w it.
Golden appearence, average head.
Fermented pea-ish aroma with a delicate and semiintertwinedscent of tropical fruits.
It goes down easy and leaves quite a nice yeasty feeling in the mouth.
