3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Hazy dark golden colored, thick head. Strong and very pleasant hoppy nose, flowery, pineapple. Initially somewhat hoppy flavor, which rapidly changes into a bitter and dry malty finish, with some licorice. The dryhopping clearly worked, the aroma is fantastic, but it’s just too far apart from the malty flavor, which makes it somewhat unbalanced. Still, a nice experiment.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, BB Aug 2013. Hazy orange to amber color, short off-white head. Aroma is quite spicy, cookie and biscuit, soft grassy and earthy hops, caramel, slight grainy, soft belgian yeast, honey. Medium bitter taste, bit dry, hint of sourness. Malt-forward brew actually, think I fetched it too late to get most of the dryhop notice. It has left some fruity bitterness perhaps.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2013)
Lovely mellow aroma, sweetish and soft, a touch floral and perfumey. Reminds me of one of the breakfast cereals I had when I was a kid with its popcorny grains. Super soft palate, smooth, succulent, and with a gentle carbonation. Beautiful balance of grains, a genntle breadiness, and bitter noble hops. Doesn’t have any special features but so brilliantly crafted. An absolutely exemplary blond. Do not put the east in at all, this is mellow enough already, and doesn’t need any more softening.

Bottle 33 cl, BBE 05/2014. Pours hazy orange in color with a small off-white head. Orange peel and floral fruity summer meadow in aroma. Sweet fruity taste with some yeasty notes. Light spicyness as well, but the orange seems to step forward here as well. Slightly bitter and yeasty in aftertaste.
