This is a pretty good Belgian ale. Nice citrus, pepper, and cloves. A bit dry. Paul gave me this one at the UC bar.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Bhavani in Brugge.
Pours a hazy light orange color with a medium head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little boozy but has a nice orange rind and spiciness.
The flavor is fruit forward and has a subtle spiciness. Some banana and orangepeel. The beer is a bit boozy when cold but this settles down as it warms.
The high carbonation serves the beer well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally rated March 2006. Bought at the Dépanneur de la Rive in Cap-Rouge, Quebec. Written DEC 2006 on plain golden bottle cap. Pours a cloudy blonde-caramel colour with a white foamy head and good retention. Kind of looks like a witbier. Lots of carbonation and lacing is sloppy all around the glass. The nose reminds me of a pilsner. After breathing a bit, the aromas turn to spices and yeast. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavours are also yeasty with some decent dry hoppy finish. Quite a refreshing brew and a nice mix between a witbier and a pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle and served in my Ommegang Anno Tulip: Pours a slightly cloudy golden/light amber hue with a few floaties, small but lasting frothy head, okay lace. The aroma has notes of wheat husks, pils, biscuit, honey, some lemon, banana, and clove esters along with light herbal hops. The taste is rather mundane, grainy with light fruit and slice notes. Bubblegum and earthiness throughout. Hint of soapy notes along with very light bitterness. The mouth feel is lively but not all that refreshing. Just like the Leffe Blonde before it, rather forgettable but then I am not really sure how fresh this bottle is always.

This stuff is okay. Had better, had worst. Maybe I’m biased against most beers from Brugge.
