2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dull gold with some particles, fading white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with peaches and apricots, candied ginger. Sweet and a little syrupy with ginger, oranges and stone fruit. Drying spicy finish. Not very engaging. No date, but probably not at its best.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
6 Soft sweet yeasty and bready aroma, recognisably belgian
4 Clear gold, huge tight creamy and fluffy head - lovely!
6 Very simply belgian bready yeasty blond ale. Low on the hops though.
4 Soft palate, gentle carbonation. Finish a little sweet, and very mellw.
13 Not an exciting experience, but certainly a very pleasurable one. Rather emasculated, even moreso than Leffe, but they leave you with a very easy drinker.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2011 Bottle. Straw coloured, cloudy, medium head. Nice Belgian aroma. Taste is mildly hoppy but balanced with sweet yeast and maltiness. Reminds me of some lighter Triples.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a soft and quickly disappearing head and a clear yellow body. Aroma of citrus, dirty socks, random light cereal. Taste is a heavy hoppy mix with some alcohol and slight grain notes on the end. Yet, it’s a pretty typical blonde Belgian ale - but that’s not to discount it too much, it’s reliable and drinkable, but it just doesn’t stand out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(330ml bottle, best by 08/05/11 thanks to bu11zeye) clear gold with bright lasting fine bubbles and good lacing. Nose of coriander, spicy Belgian yeast, wheat, and lightly grassy. Taste of coriander, grass, spicy Belgian yeast, earth, very subtle citrus. Well carbonated and creamy. Reminds me of Duvel quite a bit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 (330ml bottle, BB 05/08/11) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium egg-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, banana, earthiness, and straw. Flavor of yeast, candi sugar, dried apricot, grass, and pepper. Somewhat reminiscent of lighter alcohol Duvel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a beer fair in Girona. It pours a cloudy golden liquid, with medium-high white-beige head. The aroma is hoppy, with hints of fine roasted malt, spices, citron and yeast. Average taste: malty, some hops and citron, with lively carbonation, a little sweetness mixed with acidness, and a bitter finish. It feels a little watery. Decent beer, lacking some character in my opinion.
