3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed, dark golden color with a taller off-white head. Mild bananas and fresh wood shavings in the aroma. Hints of malt and floral hops in the nose. Quite zippy in feel. Pale malt and a touch of lemon cleaner in the flavors. Really nice finishing flavor and linger with a nice balance of floral hops and lightly toasted malt the begs for one more try. Too boring in the front.

Poured with a huge head, very carbonated, abit of spiciness to it, seems abit citrusy, grassy. Ok,but not balanced enough for me.

Part of the entrance fee for a tour of De Halve Maan included a free serving of this. What’s better than free beer? Free good beer. This was very enjoyable with a bowl of the house beer and cheese soup, which is literally soup with cubes of cheese. Rather well-balanced with some discernible hops and a hint of mace. Dry, crisp finish.

Cloudy golden with a puffy head. Aroma was lemony with light sugars, nothing impressive. Flavor was the same, once again nothing special. Bah

Draught at the Bruge Bear. Poured clear golden and frothy in a stemmed goblet. Yeast, fruit and spice in the aroma. The Flavor reminds me of a cross between a German Pils and a Triple. Quite refreshing.

On tap, cafe Studio, Haarlem. Hoppy, citrussy aroma, a bit skunked. Malty, sourrish flavour with a good bitter hoppy finish. A bit thin and lager-like, not a very pronounced flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Muddy golden, very hazy, huge fluffy white head, fairly strong carbonation. Sweet candyish nose, a bit bready, slightly husky. Soft spicy breadiness on the tongue. Some floral aspects. Grassy malt finish, semi-sweet, with subtle spices. Fairly pleasant. Nothing out of the ordinary, but certainly a quaffable Belgian Ale.   Mouthfeel is somewhat wheaty.

Bottled. Orange pour, lively head. Lemony, yeasty, spicy, perfumey nose. Light body, biiig time spicey taste, lightly floral. Clean and sweet with a somewhat sour finish. Reasonably pleasant but weak. Eh.
