3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big white head doesn’t last. Nearly clear yellow body, except
for the little particles. Earthy funky orangey aroma with mealy
herbal coriander notes. Dry-sweetish funky mango taste with
mealy earthy peppery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel
with some heat. Dryish earthy perfumy coriander aftertaste with
funky peppery notes. Nice, drinkable, but a bit too assertive and
explicit. Like someone leaning over your shoulder at the movies,
insisting on explaining every last detail of the movie as you
watch. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bottle @ Patricks. Slightly cloudy golden body wit a nice, big, foamy white head. Fine aroma of mild malt, spices, light citric fruit, Belgium yeast and farmhouse feeling. Flavor also gives a nice farmhouse impression with the same flavors as expected from aroma. Medium body and decent aftertaste in the same style. Pleasant with a special character in a gentle way. Like it a lot.
