An ordinary beer. "Housebeer" of the nice place BeerMania in Brussels. Since it´s rare it was a nice experience to drink it, but once was enough when you have som many other great beers in Belgium.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at BeerMania. Amber colour. Aroma is of hops and some yeast. Taste is first really good and dominated by yeast and hops. Then, unfortunately, comes a weird metallic taste. Still better than expected.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Beer Mania, and presented in a very special unique glass. Pours a clear gold color with a big white head. Aroma is very malty and with spices and a bit floral. Flavors of malts, citrus and floral. Spices and some honey. A good carbonation and a note of yeast with a light sweet and bitter finish. Very pleasant and well ballanced with some great flavors.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
When opened, bottle started to foam, but not so much, not enough to lose any liquid before it could be poured. Beautiful golden coloured body with a thinnish tan white head, one centimetre tall and a trillion small bubbles rising from the bottom & sides. Aroma of yeast, wheat, coriander seed, apples, pears, honey and a touch of spices - nice! Medium-bodied with a super effervescent mouthful. Tart apples up front fades to a lot of wheat, some yeast, honey and a dose of spices. Coats the mouth with dry biere de garde flavours and a touch of hay. Aftertaste shows a decent amount of sweetness and a very light alcohol flavour. Overall, a pretty good beer - definitely one that bridges styles: belgie ale, tripel, biere de garde and saison are all possible styles on this one! I liked it quite a bit, and have been waiting to drink it...I wish I could get this whenever I want, just like I wish I could always go into the store :-) I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased on 17-November-2008 from Beer Mania (of course) in Bruxelles, Belgium, sampled on the other side of the pond at home in Washington.
