3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BB 10/2008)
Slightly hazy orange color, good off-white head. Mildly fruity and yeasty nose with woody hops. Medium bodied (on fuller side). Quite yeasty flavor. Dry and fruity - spicey and hoppy finish. Spiceyness and light alcohol in the aftertaste. Well-made standard Belgian blonde, but not very complex or interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 Tap, Café De Engel Oldenzaal. Served too cold, so it’s hard to detect any aroma. But the flavor is hoppy and creamy, with just a bit of malty sweetness and pepper. Simple, but nice and well balanced. Hoppy aftertaste with a hint of peach.
Bottle: Hoppy, oily, just a bit flowery aroma and flavor. Citric, hoppy, oily aftertaste. Absolutely lovely beer!

Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Spices, yeast, malt and light alcohol notes in the aroma. Flavour is citric, spicy, wheaty. Is thin bodied and watery, and hasn’t much to offer. Easy drinkable though, and complemented my duck pretty well.
