3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice beer. Doesn’t have something outstanding, but has a nice balance of all the typical flavors with some fruitiness and mild bitter to it. But considering the price i won’t be drinking this one on regular basis.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber ale launched for the 500th birthday of the town of Oud-Turnhout. Yellowish white, coarse, not very stable head over a coppery amber beer, clear. Aroma of walnuts, caramel, white pepper, tomato, pear, iron, grass, but also cardboard or old newspapers, quite strong even, and off-putting. Dry fruity onset, caramelly and nutty malts, light spicy hints, malt sweetness, dryish finish, metallic with rather thin structure due to insufficient hoppiness. Unbalanced, but I’m willing to re-rate this as the sample I tasted, was one of the first brews, from tap at one of Ben Vinken’s Bierpassieweekends.

Beautiful appearance. Copper and hazy. Malty smell but the taste is very unremarkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy, dark orange color, thick frothy white head and quite a nice lacing. Looks appealing. Aroma is quite malty. Some bread, bit yeasty, small hints of citrus hops... Quite bland actually. Taste is pretty bready and bland as well. Malty and sweet. A bit spicy as well. It’s fine, but nothing that special actually. Aftertaste ist a bit sweet with a slight bitterness that lasts not that long. Some bitterness as well, but not that strong. Small alcholic warmishness also. Oily texture, but a watery mouthfeel, medium body and quite lively carbonation. Drinkable, but nothing to special. Not bad though, but just a bland brew that lacks a more refined and deeper taste. Especially when you consider it’s a Belgian...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
deep orange to almost dark copper color, huge airy fluffy off-white head. Malty nose, traditional Belgian yeast, bit grainy, bit peppery, hints of iron (while not present). taste: malty, with a very malty finish, albeit balanced. trying to have a fruity palate. easy drinking, pretty straightforward. sweet finish, with a bitter tone. above average carbonation. cant impress me, but is not that bad neither.

Een heel lekker bier waar je goed van kan doordrinken maar dat toch een goede smaak heeft.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown opaque orange beer with a medium white head, medium persistence. Fruity aroma (prune), caramel, herbs, biscuit. Medium sugary sweet, a bit warming, light to medium bitter. Medium body and texture, good carbonation, sweet finish. Overall, a good ale : nice aroma and taste. I’ll drink this beer during winter next time !
