3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle bought at BeYummi’s kiosk during "Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest 2015" in Central.
Looks: Cloudy hazy golden amber honey colour with a crust of yeast sediments; One and a three-quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with barely notable small carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and sweet Amber malt, with mashed banana, light vanilla, plums, dark fruits, caramel, alcohol, strong sugar, phenolic, strong Bel yeast, cloves, spices, thin lemon and faint grass.
Taste: Medium sweet full malt, with metallic, strong tartness, light red fruits, caramel, wood, sugar, strong yeast, phenolics, light lemon, moderate to strong bitter hops and light grass.
Body: Full body. Thick and creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Full maltyness in a rich and smooth body. Very creamy despite strong wheaty tartness. Light caramel gives way to some light red fruits and strong sweetness, which seems to mix well will moderate lemony hops. Spelt’s presence is just wood only and not coarseness like in the Bio Blond. Pretty satisfying!
Hoppiness: Spices, thin lemon and thin grass in nose, and stronger of the three in taste; Bitterness is moderately strong for a lasting, mid-astringent spicy sweet-bitter finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Creamy, malty and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: Compared to the Bio Blond I had earlier, this one is stronger in ingredients, but much easier to the tongue. Good aroma of typical Belgian dark ale notwithstanding, it is rich, creamy, very tart, and without that edgy spelt coarseness, plus the hoppiness is well-tuned. Way better than Bio Blond, a bit simple but definitely enjoyable. Nice one!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet, with strong yeast notes and some alcohol. Taste is definitely on the sweet side, with strong esters and a balanced finish. Overall it’s a decent belgian ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från Saveur-biere. Bärnstensfärgad, lite fint jästsediment, högt vitt skum som skapar fina gardiner. Lite trippelliknande med mycket säd och bröd i smakbilden, värmande alkohol, medelstor sötma, honung, gammaldags karameller, lite kryddig med koriander och curacao, lätt beska. Trevlig

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow... thats a weird smell... very malty and yeasty. Malt smells like it’s cooked to the bottom of the brew kettle... the taste alone doesn’t make it appealing. Taste is well balanced, but the flavours make it all blur together in something that is hard to discribe. The aftertaste is nice tho. COuld be good with some Abbey cheese. Actually, lets have some cheese with it. That works very good. 0,1 extra points for being great with abbey cheese ;)

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biological three-grains ale (barley, wheat and oats) since 2010. Creamy, snow white head, colour a misty blonde (nowhere near amber despite the name!) with even a somewhat greenish hue. Sourish wheat aroma with lots of fruity sweetness (peach, apple, banana) but also less appealing phenolic (plastic) odours and DMS (cooked cabbage). Neutral and a bit mineral-like taste, after which a sweetish graininess comes up, paired with wheaty sourishness that lasts till deep into the finish, where some astringent solvent impressions also appear. Flawed and unbalanced beer, at least the one I tasted, but I didn’t find much in this to become motivated for a re-rate.
