3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Salisbury’s Arms, Malta. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasted grain, orange, candied peel, natural yoghurt and cereal. The taste is bitter-sweet, brown bread, grassy bitterness, orange peel, earth and some spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough Belgian Ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Basic Belgian ale primarily intended for export and therefore relatively hard to find on the Belgian market. Thick, off-white, regular, sticky, stable foam, colour a darkish and brownish peachy blonde, cloudy. Yeasty aroma, bready malts, toast, cookie dough, hazelnut paste, coriander, dill seed, lemon peel, cream, nutmeg, bark. Crispy malty taste, cookie- and nut-like, strong, tingling carbonation, subtle but nevertheless pointy, citrussy acidity, probably caused by mild infection but not too disturbing; finish dryish, but could have been hoppier. In all, not that bad (for a Van Steenberge at least).

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear medium orange color, medium sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, slightly a hint of sourness. A bit hard to describe, but for sure it’s unclean.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a nice golden amber color with a slight haze. The head was crazy big, white in color and foamy with stiff peaks. It had a very long retention time and left cool lacing on the glass. The aroma is full and has notes of sour apples and pears with earthy/funky Belgian yeast and doughy malts. It has a sour funky favor with some fruity esters as well. The first sip has a puckering affect on the palate. Then there is a dry earthy yeast flavor with some doughy malts and light fruity esters that give it some nice complexity. The body is light to medium with a somewhat thin texture that is alive with carbonation. Overall I really enjoyed this ale. It had a nice refreshing character that would work very well with a light lunch, sea food, mild cheese or fruit.
