3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is quite nice but a little predictable I guess. Wheaty, lemony and herbal, coriander I guess. Taste is less interesting but it’s still nice. Dry and with a bitterness at the end. Quite wheaty but not with a great deal of taste. Alright.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko Lohjantähti, Lohja. Aroma has citrus (hops). Appearance is pale and clear with a nice head. Well, looks like a lager, but... This is like Belgian take an APA. Citrus tasting hops and quite thirst quenching. No taste of alcohol despite the 6% ABV.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pallido biondo paglierino, schiuma fragile bianca e saponosa. Erbacea, floreale, limone, malto, riso, un tocco di miele: una belgian ale classica, leggera, fresca e beverina ma un po’ acquosa.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Mildly yeast-spicy, subtle buttery and grainy pale malty aroma with notes of white bread, as well as delicately fruity accents and flowery hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Yeasty, pale malt character with notes of white bread, grains and flowery hops; moderately sweet and slightly bitter hoppy finish, again with a flowery hoppy touch. Okay. 30.VI.15

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tanakaya, as Chouffe Soleil 150. Label commemorates 150 years of Belgian-Japanese relations. Looks the same as the regular Soleil, but not sure. Spicy, citrus nose, orange, lemon, pepper, biscuity malts. Hazy bright gold with a medium, fine head. Very lemony and tart, orange peel, rich biscuity malt, a touch of honey, some spice. Nice citrus flavors win the day. A bit too sweet, and too much spice, but nice enough on a sunny day.
