Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Jun 06). Sweet caramel malty nose with lots of pear drop. Sweet easy going body. The combination of pear drops and sweetness had an almost artificial feel which didnt sit well with me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, hazy red-amber color with a small but lasting head. Very caramely-malty, slightly raw, toffeeish aroma. The flavor is raw-malty, caramely and quite sugary. Medium-bodied palate with smooth carbonation. Interesting brew - I really expected a pils, looking at the bottle. Is this barrel-aged? Not bad for its ABV, although quite sugary.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 25 cl bottle, bottled/’bbe’ = ? Amber-copper colour, scarce turbidity, very weak head. Fruity (apples, raisins) and vinous aroma revealing also caramel, a hint of bread and some yeast. Malty taste with the same fruitiness as in the nose. Light spicy background, light hoppy aftertaste. A bit soapy palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer #21 at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. Hardly a blockbuster in Belgian terms. I don’t know whether my palate was becoming a bit jaded but for three beers in a row my notes said "not a lot going on". An amber coloured beers. Touches of sweetish caramel. Mellow and easy-going. Nothing really stands out, but its a decent session beer.

Draught@The belgian draught beer festival, Croydon, London. Quite non-descript and quite light bodied. Some malty caramel and nuts, with a yeasty, citrus finish, nice and soft, but nothing out of this world.

Draught @ East Croydon, Belgian Beer Fest. Golden body with a rich snow white head. Curvaceous and sexy this beer was a-ok by me. The Marilyn Monroe of beers, it had curves and interest in all the right places.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big estery fruity aroma, with apricot notes. Some subtle caramel aromas behind that too. Amber in colour with a small beige head. Sweetish start, with a fruity mid and finish. Dry, yet not bitter. Drinkable but nothing special.
