3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle: BBD 28th Feb 2016. Poured into a ’Chimay’ chalice on 24th Sep 2014. A present from my son. Looks good, golden, clear, bright and clean, on top a full and deep white foaming head: the head stayed for a while before retreating to a thin wisp and collar. Blind tasting and I would swear this was Belgian such is the yeastiness and feel to both the aroma and taste. Hoppy, yet semi-sweet with a hidden maltiness, mild traces of citrus fruits but not enough to give a lemon or grapefruit flavour, just a mini hint within the taste. Interesting and pleasant, very pleasant.

Yellow, white head with lacing. Hoppy and peppery (pink peppercorn) aroma. Orange blossom, litchi. Surprising. Don’t know if blond ale is the best fit.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Hay and summer fruit aromas. Soft with caramel and dough upfront turning to mild summer fruit before the lasting bitter earth finish. Overall, I enjoyed it more than the sum of its parts.
