3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy deep honey color with medium white foam. Aromas are light of light base malt with smoother aged smell to it reminding lightly of pear and apple (very much in a way like a lager would smell). Palate, medium body, with somewhat thikness to texture but still quite slick leaving yeasty, banana like finish. Taste, Is more on sweet side with notes of malt, yeast (reminding of wheat beers) having tones of bananas and nut oil. Overall, not bad, not amazing. Quite light not boozy as I thought it would be, sweetish and texture and taste do remind of german hefeweisens? And something way lighter than any other Belgian strong ales, quite easy going. Give it a try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Expiration date: 03.2017
Clear, orange color. Average, frothy and white head. Diminishing. Average lacing. First wheat and fruits. Later oranges, bananas. Well balanced taste. Light sweet, bitter and sour. Oily, sticky and little bit gritty mouth feel. Soft carbonation, little bit spicy, sometimes salty. There is a lot of things going on here in mouth. Maybe little bit too chaotic, but still I’ve found it interesting. Long soft dryness in a finish.
