3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml, BB 24/07/2013. early pour is clear apple juice color with a large-bubbled white head of average retention. early on it has a strangely faint nose, as in, it almost smells like nothing whatsoever. there’s a small bit of red apple esters and mild calcium, copper and soap notes with cork and tomato / vegetable / ketchup scents coming into play as it opens. medium body, somewhat chewy and oily. apple juice flavor with very small accents of ginger root, detergent and hairspray. juicy, sweet, effervescent presence in the mouth. carbonation is a bit too rough, and the malt is a combination of gooey apple cider texture with rough, grain-heavy edges.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear blond pour with a one finger white head and nice-looking bubble action. Pilsner malts, honey, and grassy/floral hops on the aroma. The flavor is somewhat standard for the style, but well-done nonetheless. Slightly sweet honeyish malt base and mild hop bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with medium body for the style. Drinkable. A nice tick.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a totally clear blond with sparse head. Aroma is apple, pear, fresh baked bread, honey, pils malt, caramel, banana. Taste is same as aroma. Body is medium, low to medium carbonation, long bready finish. Overall, underwhelming but interesting. You probably need to pair this one with some carefully chosen food to bring out its full character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours blonde in color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts with some fruits, yeast and light hops. Taste is fruity with a light malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness with some yeast. Very spritzy carbonation and modest body provides and nice sensation on the palate. A very appealing brew that is highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled Jan. 23 2009. Crystal clear deep golden, almost no head. The nose is very floral, green grapes, chardonnay, peaches. Light to medium bodied, nice sweet malt base, lots of apple cider and pear flavors, musty and earthy, and a grassy and slightly dry finish that tastes of dusty hops. Nicely balanced, nicely aged, very sophisticated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A murky orange color with a diminishing beige head. The aroma contains some citrus, bread, and floral notes. The flavor is a bit dry with some citrus, earthy notes, and a hint of caramel. Not as sweet as many I’ve had from this style. Overall more like a simple Belgian than anything but not bad.
