3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Given that this beer is ABV 6.5% and is a very large champagne type bottle what’s not to like? So I’ve left it a couple of days to allow sober reflection. A nice drinkable Belgian blonde ale. Didn’t get the "three continents of hops". This is not the knome! However it is the Belgium style yeast that gives the spicey fruity charaxter which I am gaining in appreciation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a high ball glass. The aroma has a honey sweetness and a dry spice to it with undertones or oranges and toast as well as a bit of a waxy crayon. There’s a hint of banana and clove on the nose late. It’s a clear, pale - gold color with a filmy thin white head that has only light levels of retention and lace. The flavor is a medium bittersweet. The texture is oily, and a bit thick with a zippy, light carbonation. The medium body is spicy with notes of herbs, honey and/or bitter marmalade and toast. It finishes crisp with clove and bitter lemon notes as well as a notable crayon. The aftertaste is lightly cloying with herb, bread crust, and citric acid. Overall, specifically in the finish and aftertaste, it’s not too dissimilar to a mild, floral IPA.

Bottle, Londis, Penny Lane, Liverpool. Poured a clearish orange colour with a small white head. Nose was slightly fruity with some yeast presence. Sweetish flavour with some notes of malt, citrus and yeast. Had a vaguely Belgian feel to it but really nothing to write home about. What’s all this guff about best ale over 5% in the UK as well?! & don’t show the bottle to any Riot Grrrls either.
