2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled, BBE 21.8.2010) Clear golden with a medium, frothy and lightly lacy head. Pale-malty, grainy, lightly caramely, dryish and acidic aroma. Caramely-malty, somewhat dull and acidic flavor with some aromatic, grassy hops. Medium body with medium, soft carbonation. Quite a disappointment, with dull flavor, and almost more in common with European strong lagers, than Belgian ales.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottle, 33 cl. (bought @ Van Uxeem)
Almost clear darkgolden to amber color, with dark white head.
Aroma malts, yeasts, bit spices.
Taste spice, fruity, some caramel, good malts, little sourness, and nice bitterness, dry end.
I’m surprised but this is not a labelbeer.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Initial aroma is a bit like vomit tinged with iron bru. Thankfully this doesnt last long. Sweet and fruity with a little spice and zesty tartness keeps it drinkable. Despite the shaky start not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good yellowish-dense head over very hazy amber beer with an olive shine, pretty carbonated. Very yeasty nose, bit of citrus and - cumin? Sweet with both a little sourish (citrussy) and a little bitterish edge. A bit spicey, difficult to say exactly what - coriander? Also a bit of peach flavour. Medium bodied, quite well-filled really, slick. In the aftertaste, strangely a bit oxydized. Pretty standard Bavikhove, nothing bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, orangey-amber with a big, white head. Sweet aroma with good spiciness and fruit. Flavour is sweet, slightly alcholic, with a great bitterness providing a dry, somewhat grassy finish. Good carbonation, medium body. Quite a nice Belgian blond ale, brewed for the "Procession of penitence" / ("Boetprocessie" in Dutch) every last Sunday of July in Veurne.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer with a nice orange color and with an airy ivory colored head. The aroma is light malty with faint touches of butter caramel, dried apricots, some candi sugar and some sweet spices. Also a faint hoppyness in the nose. Taste is slight drier than expected. It has a good carbonation and a nice lively mouthfeel. On the pallet there are hints is peach-pit, some nut-skin, malts, white bread and corn flowers. The afthertaste turns dry and ends with a flowery and slight hoppy finish.
