2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle. Plucked on heavy discount from Binnys as these bottles are some of the most overpriced on the market. Murky brown pour with a large head. Smell is oxidized, some spice ntoes as well. Mouthfeel is super carbonated, it is oxidized but in a semi-pleasant manner, has some fruity esters and caramel/toffee.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It appears medium amber with a small creamy head. Murky too, but muddy when you pour all of it because of some particles. The aroma is a fine balance between honey, straw, grass and yeast. Initially it tastes moderately sweet, lightly bitter and dry in the (long) finish. Soft carbonation, a bit creamy on the tongue and light alcoholic. A beer to my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle: poured into the lovely ’Tripel Karmeliet’ stemmed tulip glass at home on 30th April 2014. Huge head that stayed, misty amber body below. The nose was yeasty with honey notes this gave the aroma a strange strange overall feel. The taste was also yeasty and again with honey traces to sweeten the flavour’ although a grassy, hop base kept the beer from becoming too sweet. I’m not a ’honey in beer’ person but this doesn’t throw the honey in your face like some and I thought it fine.

Oddly enough I have no recollection of the location. Fruity smell. Fruity, yeasty and hoppy taste. Nice balance.

Bottle at Gainsbar. Golden colour, white bubbly head. Aroma is mainly grainy, bit of sharp grassy hoppiness. Taste is interesting, slight bitterness, pretty yeasty, touch of fruit there. Feels boozier than it is.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ambrée orangée opaque, dépôt en suspension, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc abondant. Les malts clairs se mélangent à un agréable fruité de pommes-oranges avant que ne se dévoile une bien bonne amertume houblonnée et légèrement épicée qui restent longtemps en bouche.
