3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chunks of yeast, just a little honey in the aroma, together with apple. Full bodied, almost buttery. Honeyish flavor, not coming forward too much. Hoppy, yeasty and some orange, apricot and apple. A bit of sourness and herbs. Not a bad beer, reasonably balanced.

Dark blond cloudy beer with a huge quickly disappearing head. Slightly honey sweet with a yeasty taste. The alcohol is noticeable but not disturbing. Medium bitter finish. A bit too yeasty for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2 years old
Cloudy light amber color, with too many sediment particles; persistent head. Strong biting malt aroma, white sugar. Smooth taste, well balanced (i.e. not too sweet), velvety; malt, fudge, light honey. Interesting final, not really hoppy, but juggling between sweetness and dryness, bitterness and honey.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An incredible zing of fresh fruity flavours, a hint of honey lurking around, lots of fresh spice, a firm malt body not overdominated by the alcohol strength, and a pleasant and subtle hit of fragrant hops. A wonderful beer. Strongly recommended. Well worth seeking out. I bought mine at the Canterbury Beer Festival, so I don’t know where to get it. The website address is: www.proximedia.com/web/boelens.html - but it’s in Dutch.
