3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at Museumcafé Huis van Alijn in Ghent (3 III 2016), shared it with my girlfriend as ’Malteni Blond / Blonde’. This glutenfree brew is the blonde brother of the traditional amber Malteni, although it also looks very orange or amber to me. Almost light brownish or iced tea looking. The sparkling beer has a white, very firm collar and appears to be a bit hazy. There is a huge Belgian yeasts smell, and the nose has some stable and straw in it. this is an archetype Belgian blonde for sure. The taste is alcohol warming, far more heavy bodied than expected, and the mouth has notes of sourness, earth hints and even honey.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge very dense yellowish head, fed by lively carbonated dirty-golden beer. Grainy, bit diary nose, dried herbs and a tad dusty. Spicy, titillating malt flavour; herbal, actually rather attractive, despite quite some sweetness. Well-carbonated, gristslick. Better than most contraptions for autosuggestive diseases.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange colored. Lost of fizz. Not too intense on the nose but with some good yeast fruitiness, some citrus tones. Little to no hop aroma. Med sweetness, a bit balanced acidity. A bit malty and estery. Very light body. Taste of oranges and green bananas. Ok.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cL stubby bottle. Bottle date notched as March, 2014. So, about 20 months old. Poured into Courage Imperial Stout tulip/snifter. No gushing like the Triple. Medium strength head, light lacing. Golden color. Aroma is lightly honey Belgian malts, very airy, and very light dough. Moderately vigorous carbonation that cleans the flavor, which is lightly biscuit, Belgian cookie dough - light, and faint fruity ester. A pretty light yet felt beer. Damn good line of gluten free beers, maybe. Not bad for a 99 cent bottle on the discount rake.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Yeasty, estery nose, some peach maybe. Hazy honey color, fat fluffy pocked white head, some lace. Medium-strength peach, something like bacon (!) in mid palate, thin small sweetness in finish. Medium body. Hmm.... decent, I suppose. The mid palate thing is weird. Not terribly tasty or interesting. Good for a gluten-free brew.
