3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ 2011 & earlier in Brugge. One of my earliest ratings but this wasn’t on RB yet back then. “Much better on tap, more balanced, sweeter, less bitter, yeast, slight fruit (pear & apple), light floral.” Nothing really outstanding but def. way better than the industrial tasting bottles.
Earlier Rating: 3/14/2011 Total Score: 3.3
tap@ZBF 2011: much better on tap, more balanced, sweeter, less bitter, yeast, slight fruit (pear & apple), light floral /// bottle@bar: average to slightly before standard Belgian Ale that plays it safe with an overemphasis on bitter hops in the finish, clean, some spice, cool story, not interesting beer, remember this being more interesting a while ago (rating for tap version, the better version)
