4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely beer. Golden with big foamy head that has good retention. Fruits and some hoppy floral notes in the nose. Malts are noticeable as well and some banana sweetness coming from the yeast. First impression: wow! Take a sip. Strong alcohol gives this beer a ’bite’. Some sour lemon taste. Spices, belgian yeast, malts and hoppy bitterness. Fruity alcoholic dry finish, leaving you to want more. This beer is a trip. Very skillfully brewed. Dare I say it? Better than a Duvel?

Bottle, 750 ml, shared with JFK10000. Pours clear golden with white large head. Banana and hint of yeast in aroma. Bit spicy. Medium bodied, dry finish. Better than expected.

Dorada limpia y clara con preciosa espuma blanca extra duradera y muy abundante (aspecto de pilsen recien servida). Aroma nulo. Potente en boca, predominantemente amarga, pero tambien con tonos frutales, manzana verde y florales muy agradables. Buena sin destacar en nada.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A Belgian ale that is dominated by sweet fruits, rather than any yeasty complexity, not my kind of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Semi hazy golden body with a tall head. Mild malty and yeasty aroma with soft lager-like hoppiness. Sweet taste with some earthy lager type of hoppiness. Otherwise a pretty standard Belgian Blond Ale. Slightly harsh/metallic finish. Quite good, but considering the number of Belgian Blond Ales (a pretty homogeneous style, yet somehow deemed not worthy of a separate subcategory here) out there it’s rather forgettable. Does not have anything that would really grab me.

Very good ale.

0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee). Pours golden with huge off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grains, malt. Flavor follows the nose. Finish has some bitterness and metallic notes. Alcohol is rather well covered. Overall: good enough to get drunk.
