3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 33cl bottle with loads of Japanese on the rear label (I bought it in Belgium!). Best before 29 Sept 2012, drank as my second beer during one of my ’random beer tasting’ evenings in Aug 2010.
Poured into a stemmed ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ tulip glass. Dull light orange body with a large snowy white head sat on top and trying to get out the glass. Most of the sediment stayed in the bottle, but some managed to get out, hence the dullness of the colour (maybe).
So, so Belgian in aroma and initial taste: somehow the yeast esters just tell you that you’ve got a Belgian beer in your hand, this certainly did.
It is fairly sweet both in smell and flavour, clean tasting and very drinkable. All Spice and summer flower garden (sweet pea and daisies) sort of feel to it.
This beer came out best in the evenings scoring, against some other good beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old 75ml swing-top bottle with a cap closure. I suspect it was 2-3 years old. Heavily conditioned. Poured a golden colour with a thick white head. Biscuity aroma with Weetabix malt. Similar flavours with sweet candy sugar and caramel also. Heavy carbonation with moderate CO2 prickle. OK.

Bottled 33cl (Beer Tempel, Brussels)
Orange color, good white head, some lace. Fruity and leathery aroma with lime peels. Foamy carbonation. Lingering citrus, some sweetier fruityness and hops in the aftertaste. Just right amount of backing alcohol. Refreshing tripel.

Bottle from Beer Tempel. Nice bright gold with medium head. Nose of fruits, and citrus. Quite a tasty ale. I was quite impressed with fruits coming through and slight citrus taste to it. Warms in the finish. Nice one.
