3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours slightly hazy, some sediment also kicked up. Thin white head. Slight hop aroma. Taste is initially sweet, then a gentle dry bitterness comes through. Good mouthfeel of rich, creamy malt. Quite carbonated, but has a good dry finish. Not bad at all.

Een biertje met een heerlijke geur van versgebakken brood bij het openen van de fles. Goede, volle smaak met prettige afdronk.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. The colour is golden, amber or even peachy. The head is a firm foam, and tops a great appearance. This beer comes with a spicy nose, and with some rather unpleasant malt flavours. The mouth is very full of taste, for the beer has a great body. The taste itself hints at lots of grain and herbal notes. The added candy sugar adds a nice cachet to the beer.
I’m eager to try my 200cl bottle (!) - thanks to Salmaneser - instead of this small classic 33cl one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33cl. Hazy gold, with a big white top that fades somewhat. Aroma somewhat malty, but the bitterness of the hop is mostly noticeable. The taste is very bitter up front but fades when the taste develops and a then it makes me think of white beer. Not your normal blonde beer, but I quite like it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow clear body with a medium fizzy white head. Nose is pale malts, metallic grassy tones, white sugar, red berries and hints of straw and sulfur. Taste is white sugar, mild Belgian yeast tones, straw, pale malts and hints of banana, alcohol and bread dough. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not too bad, but by far the best of the strong golden Belgians I’ve had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is pure, and that’s all that I can say about it, it’s not as aromatic as I tought it would be, I can smell candy and malt. The taste is powerfull, right from the first sip. It’s a little sticky in the mouth.
