3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, and a good amount of hops for a Belgian beer. Flavor the same, with a little light fruit and sweetness. Average texture. A pretty good Belgian beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White head with excellent retention craters leaving sea foam lacing. Sweet caramel, yeast and biscuit aromas. Dry with upfront sweet caramel turning to an very bitter, almost metallic (in a good way) lasting finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquors on August 10, 2012, for $6.90. Pours a huge, yeasty head and a clouded and highly carbonated body. I was put onto these beers by Alberta’s Hoser and I am glad he did. This beer is a strong reminder of one of my favourite Belgian Ales - SAXO. It is well malted, has an overwhelming yeastiness and fruity effervescence. Its a damn fine beer... only a few shades behind Saxo.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is dominated by yeast and wheat notes, with some light clove and candied sugar. Flavour mirrors the nose almost exactly, with the yeast dominating, with some notes of candied sugar, wheat and clove. Very high carbonation, though easy drinking nonetheless. Solid light Belgian ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy and light amber colour with an off white head. A bit fruity and moderate sweet nose. Malty background with fruity, light citric and some spicy notes in the flavour. A bit to much alcohol coming through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had it at Delirium in Brussels during Paul’s pre-wedding bro-down. Pours hazy, yellow-gold with a decent, white foam head. Nice beer. Good grassy bitterness, crisp crackery malts, medium sweetness. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Pretty dry to finish, which is nice, with a crisp, refreshing pine edge and light grass notes. Some mild fruit, gum and bread as well. Nicely rounded beer overall.
