3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Clear golden, rocky head. Vinous black currant dominate the aroma. Light bodied with sparkling mouthfeel. Has a fresh citric character, sort of wild yeast of Brettanomycaes type. Very interesting beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with thick white clinging head. Sprightly carbonation tingles the tongue at the first sip and rises in a column from the center of the Begian goblet this was sampled from. Slightly sweet with a soft round mouthfeel, except for the tight bubbly carbonation. A fairly light body makes this an easy drinking Belgian ale. The yeast aroma is interspersed with citrus notes. A slightly sweet finish drapes over the sides of the tongue leaving a long satisfying afterglow.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This cloudy golden ale poured with a lacy white head, eliciting a citrus aroma. There is a thin spicy flavor, not unlike a typical Belgian witbier, but with a slightly sweet finish. There is no hint of malt, as one would expect in this style of ale. Drinkable, but not distinctive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BB 10/2008).
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma has citrus, leather and nuts, a bit like a heated tyre. Crisp, hard mouthfeel, lemony but ashy flavor. Weak leafy hops. In the finish some sugar sweetness. Empty without proper malt background. Some unique elements in this beer, but they are not all enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slear apple juice colored body. Towering bubbly white head. Sweet bubblegummy aroma, light citrus also. The flavor is pretty boring, bubblegum and some lemon. Leaves a lot to be desired. Over carbonated mouthfeel, to the point that each sip threatens to overwhelm the capacity of my mouth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught - ’t Brugs Beertje - Brugge. A blonde coloured beer with a thin white head, and a touch of lacing. The aroma is lemony and yeasty but there is a lagerish type grassy note also. The taste is more of the same. A bland mixture of a heavy lager and a boring Belgian Ale means this beer doesn’t satisfy.
