33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam. Bottled 06/2014
Aroma has fruit candy, some hops and tropical fruits. Flavour has fruit candy, some apricot, alcohol and citrus. Finishes with lingering herbal tones. Aroma was promising but flavour is just too boozy. Adding the yeast makes this also messy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite a simple one. Straw mixed up with a bit of honey and some yeast. Easy to drink, uninspiring but honest. Nothing special at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The bottle came from Douberd in a trade - many thanks! It pours out like many Belgian Ales in a cloudy, light, dirty amber colour with airy low head and medium body. The aroma was quite boring and dusty with notes of straw, caramel and hops. Taste of straw, hops, Belgian yeast, nuts, hay, basement and flowers. It is drinkable, no question, but just quite boring compared with a unpleasant, dusty and stinky finish. Not bad, but not better than the average Belgian Ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Into a tulip glass. ABV 7%
Bright golden orange colour on the body with no activity in it. Mostly clear. Tall snow white head, with very good retention and heavy lacing left behind.
Aroma of yeast, lots of sweet peaches.
Taste of yeast, some brett like notes, nice and fruity with peaches again, sugar. Quite sweet but there is a touch of sourness at the end that balances it. Aftertaste is slighty bitter, very good.
Medium thin body, good carbonation.
Overall a pleasant surprise it was this one, very good.
