4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh out of the fridge, this definitely needs some settling down, as it is overly carbonated and produces a huge meringue-like head. Once warmed and aerated, its a nice golden brew, heady with aromas. Grassy, lemon-pepper, hints of various fruits, cider, toffee-malt, whiskey and a bit of cheesy yeast. The beer is distinctly, though subtly sour, with a slightly clean finish. Classicly, farmhouse-style, this is a great refresher, especially for fans of sour ales. I preferred this over their Seasonal Moneuse, which may have been a bit stale.

375 mL bottle at the Capital in Leuven. Clear golden-brown with a large bubbly head. Smooth, crisp and a little sour. Hoppy, farmyard aroma. Smooth drinking and tasty beer. Bitter with a light alcohol burn.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, with a fantastic yellow head.
Restrained aromas of citrus peel, yeast, with herbal and sour hints.
Smooth, slightly bitter beginning with subtle fruitiness, which then gets intensified due to a chewy sourness. Slightly stings the tongue, then dough yeast softens the fruit impression, opening up the palate for bready malts, adding a decent complexity and balance to the beer. Yeast stays visible till the end, reminding me almost of a Witbeer, which is only partly true, because vivid fruits still add a sour hint, assisted by high carbonation. A bit too watery, neither of the flavors is convicing on themselves, they do mix up well, but could use a little push to intensify the overall flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at DTE tasting. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is really fruity, not sure about fig juice, but definitely fruity, malty, lots of honey, light herbal notes. Taste is grainy, fruity, lingering Belgian yeasty finish. Palate is sweet, a bit heavy with medium carbonation. Not my favorite Blaugies by far, their beers are usually so much drier and brighter than this. Too sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma of bread, wet earth and mild pungent fruitiness. Flavour of smooth bready malts, pungent fig notes, floral notes, green apples, orange peel, earthiness and some yeastiness. The fig notes clearly stand out towards the end. Medium bodied and a juicy, dry, slightly sour finish. Extremely well balanced. I like this brewery.
