Rather light aroma is sweetish with caramel and ripe fruits. Flavour is sweet and light with caramel, ripe fruits and hints of spices. Too light stuff.

Pours dark amber with a nice, creamy, white head. Fine duration. Aroma has toasted caramel, light milky chocolate, some yeast. Highish carbonation, fine light and mildly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some Belgian sugar, liqourice, toasted caramel, light yeast and plums. This one has a little character compared to the others.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Süß-metallerner, erst spät Kaffeesatz-artiges malziges Aroma, etwas nach Kaugummi. Zum Ende wässrig, dafür nimmt das Malz etwas zu. Dennoch dürftig, nur wenig harmonisch. 7/7/6/6//6

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap (Brewpub, Brussels)
6- Very cold, so only a little banana comes over at first, a little acidity too? Old, I’m guessing.
4 Reddy orange, small ring head
5 Dusty stale retronasals. Bananaey taste too, and slight sourness on swallowing.
3 Cold, and thus a bit harsh carbonation. Finish is immediately the sourness and big fruity ester kick, of course banana too. However, the long finish is very hoppy - very fresh and green
11- Several pluses and minuses. Certainly a bit old from the sourness, but you can see it’s got all the right ingredients in the right proportions.

7th March 2010. On tap at the overpriced Grand Place. Clear brown beer. Light fresh palate. Sweet malt - very sweet! Has some nicely integrated bubblegum. A pretty average beer elevated somewhat by it’s freshness. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts!
