3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Minimal head over a clear blonde body. Good lacing. Smell is huge in bubble gum with yeast and some citrus. Taste was a lot of the same. I can’t believe how much this one taste and smells like bubble gum! Really weird. I like this one but it’s not the best BSA. Just different than others I’ve had. Overall not very well balanced with the hops and sweetness but still a pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden beer with a thin lasting white head, aroma is citrussy, floral and spicey - taste follows but with a slightly bitter finish that knocks down the score. Kinda reminds me of Tripel Karmeliets poorer cousin.......still a good beer though.

Clear golden body with a large, creamy, white head, mostly lasting with a good lacing. Lots of tinuy particles coming from the bottom of the glass.
Intense malty aroma (bread); light yeasty and hoppy notes. Moderate spicy, fruity (orange) and alcoholic notes are present too.
Heavy sweet taste at the beginning; then also a bitter note appears for a long-lasting finish.
Medium body with an oily texture; soft carbonation; some alcoholic feeling in the finish.

BEARLIKE DRUNK OOZED GEL !
Good little beer this. Actually drunk a couple of months after the best before date but still tasted remarkably fresh. Great strong fruity aroma on opening, and a very clear pale golden pour with barely any head. What looked slightly insipid however was very pleasant on the tastebuds with the 8.5% clearly evident. Fruity and sweet with undertones of vanilla icecream this went down far too well. Just wish i’d had another waiting in the fridge

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A bready perfumy Belgian blonde ale with no real character.
How: Bottle 330ml. Age unknown (about 1 year old?)
The look: A medium white head over a clear dark blonde body with A LOT of medium-size particles.
In long: The nose is very foral/perfumy with a little band-aid. Smelled like a get-well bouquet of flowers in a hospital. Taste is not-totally-cooked white bread (a bit doughy) dipped in honey and rolled in perfumy flowers. The 8.5% is rather well hidden. No bitterness and/or dryness yet the beer didn’t feel too sweet. I can’t fault it for anything but it felt so, you know, blah uninspired. Named after a dude from the 16th century who didn’t invent penicillin.
