2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle at home: Brilliant old gold with a massive, slowly fading, yellowed head. First impressions are of earthy hops wrapped in tinfoil. Wow, really aluminum character with hops and some breadiness. Yeast is quite abundant in the nose as well with some alcohol fighting its way through. Taste starts out with brad, yeast and pretty sharp tinny hops. Can’t get away from this metallic character. Alcohol, bread and biscuit take you through the middle to a nicely hoppy (for a belgian) finish. Light mouthfeel. A bit of raw earth in the back of the throat with tin and hops working their way back to meet the earth. The metal seems to work itself out in the flavor but never leaves the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Now this I like. Gold, thin white head. Grassy hop aorma. It’s a hoppy blond, good hops, bit empty on the malts maybe, but the finish is pretty good. After half a dozen syrupy blonds, this is a bit of a treat. Very dirnkable and I’ll buy this again.
