2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A basic straightforward sweet fruity Belgian blonde ale. Rather bland
How: Bottle 25cl, between 6 months to 1 year of age
The look: Cloudy yellow blonde body topped by a short lived white head
In long: Sweet fruity dessert nose (mainly pineapple upside down). Taste is mainly sweetness, mangos, pineapples, bananas, more sweetness. Something feels dusty in this beer (yeast?). Alcohol is slightly apparent which is very unusual in a Belgian ale of this relatively low gravity. Mangos, flower petals and floral hops in the finish. Light bitterness. Short finish. Straightforward beer that’s not aiming at anything. Not offensive and easy to drink but also very forgettable. At least that explains why the trolls on ratebeer are people who don’t seem to know anything about good beers.

bottle, pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of lemon peel and hops dominate, a sweetness in the backround(honey?) The mouth highlights the sweet malt with a touch of cream feeling, but turns to a slight carbination with some bitterness from the hops. Enjoyable.

250ml bottle - - Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam
Pale hazy gold, small head. Not much aroma. Soft maltiness, touch of nut and hop. Taste rather nondescript, again simple malts, and a touch of alcohol. Not really selling itself so far. However, after swallowing, it improves greatly. The finish is packed full of whole hops, and it is a bit crisper, and quite tasty. One of the more subtle brews from dubuisson.

Unclear golden of color with a nice white head. An aroma which reminds me of a lager? Notes of hops, light malt spice and fruits. A flavor of spice, sweets, fruits and hops. An easydrinking golden ale.
