2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a cloudy, opaque honey colour with up to a six-finger light tan frothy head that retained very well but laced poorly. carbonation high with very small bubbles. Aroma of pleasant fruity hops and a hint of sweet caramel. Taste mildly sweet with light hops bitterness. Light body. Smooth, dry finish and low bitterness. A good session ale.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Suffers a bit from a lack of body, as most session beers do. Nice enough smell and ok malt flavour but nothing in the mouthfeel to bridge those components together

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Awesome. Deep, hazy gold color so its opaque. The head is big, dense, white frothy goodness. It has a light aroma of faint malt and hops yet the aroma still satisfies. The ody is medium yet fully satisfying. The taste is a medium malt and bitterness making it a balanced beer good for a session.the finish has a nice bitter kick followed by a weak sweetness, and a closing bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at The Foundry (Mohamed Sultan Rd), Singapore, 4.5% ABV
Cloudy amber color with generous head. The aroma is moderately spicy, the mouthfeel is lean, dry; the flavor is well spicy, quite like Belgian beers; correct bitterness.
It doesn’t have a distinctive character to raise it above the crowd, but it’s a pleasant beer.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
360 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place in Mong Kok.
Cloudy hazy golden honey amber colour with lots of dirt-brown yeast sediments; Three finger head with beautiful, crumpety off white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Very fragrant and sweet aroma of ale malt, with refreshing grapefruit, floral, honey, caramel, light orange peel, strong Bel yeast, cinnamon, earth, lime and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of full Ale malt, with light grapefruit, dry biscuits, light molasses, dough, yeast, strong earth, spice, light liquorices, strong lime and herbal hops; Mid to light body, quite thick and slick palate; Mouth feel is a full micro IPA - crisp light grapefruit and orange, very light sweetness, dry biscuit, very Saaz spicy and earthy - but without the big ooze and pine cone, it seems too miss something and not quite complete… Hoppiness is nice grapefruit and floral nose, light citrus and spicy earthy herbal taste. Liquorices is moderate for a notable and long light bitter finish; Very dry after taste, crisp and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one is only half successful. It is Belgian in looks, head and yeast only. Aroma is full IPA’s nice grapefruit and floral, but the IPA taste is somewhat flat and the lack of resin, pine and sweetness makes this unfulfilled. Only good looks and not much substance. Like its name, a single take of this is more than enough for me.
