3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned. Amber, good fluffy off white rocky head that quickly drops to a thin covering. Good condition. Slightly yeasty aroma with a niggling suggestion of infection. Worty in the mouth with some fruity apple and a phenolic, aniseed note that starts to feel like a wild yeast infection. Sweet and tangy in the long finish with more yeastiness apparent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is slightly fruity with notes of anise and an OK sweetness. The color is an unclear dark amber with a fanstastic lasting head. The flavor though is somewhat boring with notes of spices - is it anise? It has some sweetness but no bitterness - instead it has a woodyness, that lingers on the tongue. The flavor becomes better and better the more You drink. It has a really good palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Hazy light amber coloured. Quickly deminishing head. Sweet citrusy aroma. Lightly spiced. In some strange way it reminds me of a belgian wit. Not much flavour to descripe. Lightbodied and a bit boring. No hopsbitterness in the end.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber coloured with a small and weak head. Some citrus in the aroma. The flavour is very alcoholic and the aftertaste is strange bitter and sourish. Their brune is much better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This blonde version is off course pretty alcoholic, but also mutifarious. A interesting blonde Belgian Strong Ale. In the beginning it is gorgeous, but as you work through the bottle, the alcohol becomes more and more obvious.
