Thanks to tderoeck! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. Clear golden, little white head. Nose is sweet, soap, chemical,… Taste is soap, chemicals, nasty, fizzy, esters, floral,… High. Carbonation. Unpleasant, I associate nothing nice with the Bouillon name.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle at home on 21st Feb 2016. Poured into a Westmalle Trappist chalice, golden pour, clean and clear until I allowed the sediment to leave the bottle and churn up the body of the beer. The head that was building into a large white dome soon died once the grist left the bottle. Fruity and yeasty nose with a malty base. The taste was also malt laden, fruity and fairly yeasty in nature. OK, but not one of the better Belgian beers I have had the pleasure of drinking over the years.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a big, durable, off-white head, leaving nice lacing. Quite complex nose, it is sweet and nutty yet after a while it develops fruity and yeasty notes as well. Sweet, but with dry spices keeping the balance, dry finish. Fruity with some sourness, hints of mandarin and pepper. Surprising light-bodied. A Belgian masterpiece.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Slight gusher. Opaque orange with a medium, lasting head. Nice and fresh, perfumy-yeasty, lightly tart, pale-malty nose. Flavor is also lavender-perfumy, with meaty coriander spiciness, a touch of ginger, and slight tartness with acidity. Some bitterness, too, and faint ashy-cardboardy notes in the background. Medium+ body, foamy CO2. A quite spicy, but refreshing and enjoyable ale. 3456

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another commissioned Bouillon beer, "la bière des joyeux Drilles", with very thick rocky head captured after strong gushing, off-white and stable; orangey amber colour, cloudy. Fruity nose of melon, apricot, grapefruit, peppery hops, vanilla, barnyard, wet straw, coriander, cheesy hops. Assertively fruity onset with light citrus touch on a soft caramelly and nutty malt base, coriander, drying, long peppery hop bitterness in the finish. One of the better Bouillons I had so far.
