3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 on tap at ’t Brugs Beertje. Cristal clear golden blond beer with orange highlights and a very stabile white head on top. Aroma is straight forward. One can notice a good maltyness and an attractive bitter touch in the nose. The taste is nice and easy drinking, the balans is good and the afthertaste clean.

Light golden with a nice and creamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweetish with notes of malt. The flavour is sweet with nice notes of fruit, candy sugar and light citrus. This charming brew has a nice harmony. 2275

Sampled on Flashy’s tour of Brugge in June 2007 - A decentish beer from Brugge. A tad too sweet and oaky almost for me, but still pretty good. Of the Brugge brewed beers, I preferred Staffe Hendrick.

bottled: Pours a brilliant light chestnut with raspberry highlights. Big head made of large bubbles but disappears before you get a good look at it. The aroma consists mainly of caramel, yeast, and hot alcohols. Behind that lingers some more complex aromas of dried herbs, roast, cotton-candy, and bubblegum. Once the beer hits your tongue it explodes with carbonation. It is so highly carbed that it really hides the flavors, but it lets the alcohol through which makes it sting more and hits you in the back of the throat. I had to sit there for the next few minutes swirling the CO2 out of the beer. After doing that then some flavor is noticeable. Toffee, red-currant and tart summer fruit, marshmallow and something floral in the back, finishing with tea leaves. Overal the beer is overly carbonated and a bit hot.

On tap @ Lokkedize, Brugge.
Clear, light copper colored. Medium-sized, mostly lasting near-white head. Slight sweet aroma of pale malts, ripe banana and toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, light malty with spicy and peppery notes. Well hopped. Medium-bodied. Smooth and very drinkable.

Bottle from Whole foods market. As far as belgian beers go, this is a dud. Golden color and no aroma. Flavor is fairly reserved and dull. Not something I would buy again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First beer of 2007, Druid’s Cellar, Bruges. Bottled. Deep amber pour with a dimpled slick of suds. Snout is dry and vinous. Thin, lagery and aggressively fizzy for a Belgian. Sweet, malty and unspicy with a hint of sourish sharpness. More understated and neutral-tasting than when I’ve had it on tap. Half-decent lagery-lambicy ale but nothing to write home about.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft @ Hamilton’s. Not bad at all, but compared to other offerings, this isn’t a show stopper. Clear like a pilsner and easy drinking. Hints of that Belgian "flavor" and a ripe, clean finish.
