3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
'Zwijntje' means actually something like 'little boar'. I drunk this beer at an inn in Belgium with a dish full of boar. A picture was taken so maybe something nice for a new avatar. The beer is a typical belgian blonde ale, bit stronger in ABV though. Smells refreshing, fruity. The beer is yellow coloured, lasting frothy head. Refreshing taste, typical blonde like. fruity, some honey and hops, more bitter palate. Descent brew.

Smells like citrus and spices. Very ugly residu. Makes you wonder if the beer is still okay. But taste is okay, spicy, citrus. Typical triple. Bit too typical.

Another favorite import of mine. With a full-bodied flavor and a smooth aroma, this one's hard to resist. Very nice color as well.

Pours a pale, cloudy golden color with a big, lingering white head. The aroma is yeast with touches of spice and clove. The flavor is slightly malty, with some clove and yeast undertones. Finish is spicy and hoppy. Somewhat similar to a good German Heffe in taste, this is quite a refreshing Tripel.

I had this years ago and had better memories than the bottle I had two days ago. Dark Golden/Amber with a tall off white head. Fruity and yeasty in aroma and flavors. Small amout of farmyard in the flavor as well. Some time the memories are better left alone.

One of the lighter Belgians, with an almost Pilsener-esque flavor to it. Light in color, light in aroma, light in flavor. Not my favorite, but should be refreshing on a hot day.
