3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is quite estery with a typical Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is a bit thin but with some good orange and apricot coming though as well as a bit of spice, not sure what exactly but it kind of gives a slight warming. Solid beer just seemed a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance : Clear golden small head. Discrete lacing.
Aroma : Some spices with some yeasty esters. Hints of alcohol. Some malt with notes of cooked veggies.
Taste : Light esters with light malt. Some spices. A bit dusty.
Palate : Thin body, soft carbonation.
Overall : Quite drinkable and refreshing. A tiny bit hot (maybe because of the spices or the alcohol). Not a lot of esters. Not a bad one but not a good one either.
