3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
There’s a lot to like in the this beer. Very aroumatic. biscuity, toasty malts some grassiness. thick caramel malty syrup a touch of bitterness but plenty of sprucey, herbal flavor. Body is surprisingly thick and carbonation is just almost biting. Not very good looking but tasty. This bottle is a bit old, I think there’s some oxidation. not much funk though, despite being in a green bottle.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Green bottle. Poured cloudy medium peach with a dense cap of beige head.. set up nicely in the glass. The aroma picked up warm peppery spices and cloves over honey, green raisins, and toffee.. wet oak and a little green apple right on the back.. I loved the initial impression, but digging deeper revealed some light struck character. The flavor confirmed my fears.. dry cardboard, green apple, and semi-sour oak (or something like it) were laced throughout.. raisins and toffee sweetness at the core.. dry and a little sour on the finish and some tasty dried bananas and rising smoke. About medium-bodied on the palate with low carbonation.. sour and a bit sharp.. not a joy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl from Dranken Geers. Appearence like muddy waters turning against the red corner with a thin whitish head. Nose is nutty, perfumic with some apricots and some light pepper. The taste is tipically belgian (crappy thing to say I know) Some spicies and celler-wet wood: Finaly it has a touch of a traditional juniper-bitter. Medium palate with a natable touch of alcohol. Allright but average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich amber pour with a thick sticky white head. The nose is lightly tart with a kiss of soft bretty funk over a fairly soft toasted caramel sweetness. A touch of light fruit as well as a bit of soft spiciness. In addition there is a little bit of light herbal character. On the front is soft and fruity with a little bit of malt sweetness. It opens into a lightly phenolic middle and this turns into a pretty assertive smokiness on the back. Warming intensifies the smokiness on the nose.

Thanks to a friend (Arjen) for sharing. Hazy orange-brown colored, big head. Nice aroma of malts, smoke and even a little bit of balsamic vinegar. Bitter flavor, some malts, again smoke, more bitter in finish. Interesting brew, light and balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Green standard 11.oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan color. Minimal head. Medium-bodied, relatively thin and drinkable for a Belgian. Quite bitter and hoppy, matches up nicely with the funky yeast. Quite a nice beer, but a touch underwhelming.
