4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprised to see these low ratings. Poured lightly hazy, golden yellow, full foamy head. Wonderful floral and perfumed aroma of hops, maybe spices. Very nice. Flavor is less exciting, light palate, very very fizzy on the tongue, light acidity, dry finish. Some floral hops, bread dough. Like a beer soda pop - as in the soda pop for 18th and 19th century French farmers. Enjoyable and moderately quenching - I treated this as a lawnmower beer, literally, and I wasn’t disappointed. Dated 10/2002, my label differed from the one pictured above, instead it was this: http://www.beerlabels.com/labels/labels.pl/311/_b_

Good balanced bitter palate. Bitter taste. White and thick foam, stays for 90 seconds. Dark-golden colour, almost ideal.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
White head, middle lasting, golden yellox body, nice aroma: this is a bière de garde! I was a bit doubting becase of the "organic" mention on the label, but I was not disappointed! This beer (made by the same folk as the "Ch’ti") is surprisingly good! Full taste, nice aroma, hoppy aftertaste, it’s got it all!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear, bright golden hue, with big carbonation, and a small, chalk-white head.
Aroma: a little citrusy, sour, otherwise fairly vacant.
Taste is a blend of sourness, citric fruit and more, with bits of sweetness coming through for balance. Hops are around, but not abundant, and malt is also in attendance, but lays back. Texture is good and tangy, tasty, well-received. Body, light. Flavor good, finish nice and sweet.
Overall, a fine enough ale made for everyday drinking, a table beer, perfect for simple meals, picnics, hanging around, a nice drink for the sake of drinking.
An excellent example of a Belgio-/Franco- "session ale." So I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold with light short lived head. Lots of floaty yeast. All the flavors are subtle but I picked up citrus, some esters, little bit of spice and yeast. This was a really light and refreshing beer with a slight peppery finish.

Mildly dry lemony citrus aroma. A bit woody, sweet, very light and whispy, birch tree bark and moderately dry finish with loads of setiment.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Did I have a completely different beer than you guys? No it’s not great, but there IS flavor, a great aroma (apples, pears, grapes, mmm fruity fruity), a nice honey-champagne appearance and an appealing (though not really my type) dry finish. More carbonation than I would like, and the flavor doesn’t hold up to the excellent nose, but it’s certainly an above-average beer, I’d say.

Light yellow color, the bottle had alot of floaters. Smells and taste a bit like gueuze to me. Leathery and barnyardish. Not bad, if thats how is suppose to taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light in color with a very faint aroma. The taste is light and smooth with no sharpness to the finish. Slightly fruity, not very complex.
