3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Quite filtered, golden and orange with small white head. Nose : fruity esters and grainy sweet malts. Sip : creamy body and texture. Small carbonation. The beer is sweet and malty with notes of grains and toffee. It’s well balanced and easy to drink. The end is lightly hopped, flower like and a bit sour in the aftertaste. It’s OK.

Probably served this one too cold. Faint fruity yeast aroma. Hazy golden colour and good carbonation going on. Flavour is bitter, loads of hoppy bitterness. Not really special.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Bier Tempel, Brussels.
Pale hazy golden with a medium, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma is fairly complex, roses, pepper, crisp malts, yeast, apple and peach. High carbonation, creamy yet somehow watery palate with some dryness. Flavour has mild maltiness, light nutty, some roses, white pepper. Fair lingering grassy bitterness in the end. Good beer overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head that fades fast. Aroma of nice yeast, honey, coriander seed, grass and a lot of flowers. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral taste with a good dose of malt to balance with a pleasant and surprisingly complex finish that shows alcohol, malt, sugars and a good yeastie note. Aftertaste shows a subdued finale with the coriander seed and yeast playing the largest parts, but the pleasantness of a floral finish with a touch of hops is nice. Overall, a very pleasant and enjoyable beer with good flavours throughout and a complexity to enjoy. To think that this is just a typical beer that you can find everyday and enjoy without question or savouring is amazing. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased at the Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €2,50 sampled at home in Washington on this side of the pond on 26-May-2011. Best by date of 16-June-2012 on cap.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellowy Wit haze, white rim. Enticing sharp yeasty snout with an edge of sourness, banana esters, almost leafy coriander, biscuity pale malt, herbal hop, chick pea. Mouth silky, peppery, drying into a firm bittering hop finish. Yeasty, citrussy, hints of pine and antiseptic hop. Nice balance of spice, malt, hop and wheat like a hopped-up, more characterful Zot. Not bad.
