3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles to leave a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and spices with some grains. Taste is a spicy hop bitterness with a fruity malt sweetness with a dry finish. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. A nicely done Belgian ale.

2008-05-30, blind tasting at Yespr’s, 6-3-5-2-9=25
Hazy blond color, creamy head. The aroma is perfumy, soapy, and with some spices, not bad. Dryish body, poor flavors to take home, and a light infection spreading here. Wrong.
2008-03-28, draught at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità, Milan, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Cloudy blond color. It has some spicy aroma. It has a good body, with a good mix of flavors: cereals, wheat, light spices. Maybe the yeast footprint is still too evident. Good bitterness level. Good.
