3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A light golden body, frothy white head that laces nicely. a bit of a yeasty nose, banana, clove, dough. The taste has a bit of bite, the clove-i-ness hits the back of the mouth on the way down and leaves a lasting finish, yet stays refreshing. A good one, but not that unique.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Much more a ’Bier de garde’ than a ’IPA’ . Thin head with light carbonation, light pale body. Little hop aroma or bitterness, distinct belgian yeast flavours. Nice enough nowhere close to an IPA though. Still a hundred times closer than Greene king!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a clear golden color, little bit of yeast floating around, with a fluffy white head. Very floral nose, slightly spicy and citrusy, some pine, and a little grassy. Grassy and slightly peppery taste, there’s some not-quite-dark fruit in there, almost a perfumey taste. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Quite tasty, very floral, but the aroma was a lot better than the taste.

33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #714, bottled 13.11.2012, BBE 31.05.2014
Aroma has grass, yeasty notes, some apricot and citrus. Flavour has citrus, some spices, apricot, sweetish malt and hints of honey. Finishes with grass and distant herbal notes. Closer to a Belgian blonde than golden ale. A bit too stuffy and yeasty but decent anyway.
