3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy all around; phenols in the aroma, sugar and sour in the flavor moderately, some pepper, yeasty beer, sharp. I kind of used the beer at the end as a real swisher to see what would happen and my mouth got really spicy. Lots of lacing man. Spicy yeasty - again - sticks with you and lays it on heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (some random bar, Bruges)
6 Sweet perfumey malts.
3 Mid gold, healthy persistent head
6 Lovely soft perfumey malts and hops. Quite clear real hops, but still very malted
3 If it wasn’t for the residual sugars, this would have a thin palate, but it does have carbonation that fits well with that level of sweetness. Finish fairly crisp, and with fresh green hops.
13- Very easy drinker. A hoppier version of Leffe, say.

Light golden coloured, a very nice big head. Smell is earthy, good spiced. A lot of taste, but not really that good. Unpleasant dry biterness, hops, to much spices, earthy, light citrus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice solid head, not too much of it, and a very bright yellow with some good carbonation. Aroma of hops, coriander, grains. Taste is mostly hops with a bit of tinniness, grassy notes. Very dry finish. It’s a very good blonde.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with a average sized white foamy head over a clear gold body. Smells of spices (corianader seed) and tropical fruits (passionfruit, pawpaw). Tastes of honey, spices and tropical fruit with a sweet body, but a slightly bitter toasty finish. Medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden beer with heavy carcarbonation and pearl white head. Yeast, cheese, some spices, grass. Nice malts going on. A quite dry beer that could do with a more explicit taste. Good alcohol in the back. I like it, although it’s not very complex. (Bottle 33cl, 5,50 eur)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
21-AUG-2010, bottle @Erik, brought and served blind by Peter.
Dark amber with fine lasting off-white head.
Very fruity "cassis" nose. Fine base beer - malty with some hops. Typical belgian stron ale apart from the fruits - raspberries as well?
Overall a fine beer.
