3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
New beer with a stable, off-white head and misty golden blonde colour; nose gets green apple, caramel, green hops, pineapple and mango; taste a rounded fruitiness with fresh citrus accent, yeasty, caramel malt sweetishness, finish nutty and toasty with flowery hoppiness. Not bad but nothing really exciting, either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up Thursday 4th October 2013 from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home Tuesday 15th October 2013 Golden in colour with a large white/off white foamy head atop. Nose is fruity but mostly of the citrussy type, juicy soft squidgy citrus fruits with a little tiny streak of tic tac mint running through, not obvious perhaps but I noted it. Some spiciness, mid bitterness its fine but lacks assertiveness. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3
