3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big offwhite coarseish head. Amber body with carbonation. Spicy fruity soft metal aroma with peppery notes. Dry-sweetish Belgian yeast profile with tropical fruit and resin taste, and mealy grassy notes. Light body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry, almost bitter, mealy soft metal and grass aftertaste with floral earthy notes. Very nice and drinkable, but not terribly remarkable. (0.33l bottle, de Biertempel, Brugge.)

Looks like a Belgian blond. Yellow/golden to orange color. Typical blond smell to me. Decent taste but nothing very special and a pretty low body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye best by 9/23/11) amber in color, effervescent with a creamy tan head. Nose and taste of Belgian yeast, oats, and a bit of spices. Pretty boring and dull overall. Had a difficult time describing it beyond this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big bottle. Clear, too clear. Dark amber. Sweet, fruity aroma is similar to a run of the mill British bitter. Palate is thin, gassy, fizzy. Bland and boring, like drinking cardboard. But has a small bit of fruity malt interplaying with the yeast. Not bad but I’d sooner leave it than take it.

330 ml bottle. BBE 17.7.2014.
Pours a golden copper colour with a creamy, thick, slightly off-white head. Loads of visible bubbles. Aroma of spices, malts and toffee. Flavour of caramel malts, spices, light dark fruits, Belgian yeast and citrus. Quite high carbonation, thick mouthfeel and a dry, malty and slightly fruity finish. Lacks fruitiness and has too much carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, split with manuchampions, Matts_Property and uhlan, pours a murky orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma is quite musty, with leather, band-aids, subtle spices and toasted bread. Flavour is leathery and spicy, with bready malts and a mild tartness, also a bit medicinal. Pretty unspectacular and a bit off-putting, but drinkable.
