3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: golden color. Medium head with white color, dense and lasting.
Aroma: light sweet smelts from malts and some yeasty. Spicy and citric aromas from hoops, with reminiscences of herbs, eucalyptus and grapefruits.
Flavor: light sweetness start from pale malts, spicy progress with reminiscences of ginger, coriander and other herbs. Some citric-dry notes similar to grapefruits and orange peel. Light and lasting hoopy-dryness final. Gingery aftertaste.
Palate: light to medium body and medium carbonation.
Remark: decent blond ale, but the “ginger-touch” of some De Graal beers is repetitive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from Liquid Solutions. Aroma of light funk, citrus and floral. Slightly hazy orange tinged color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is fruity (apricot?), yeasty, lightly funky, hint of malty. Finish is very clean, and tending towards dry. It’s really quite a taste treat.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle from State Line. Pours turbid canary with 3 fingers of fluffy white head. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrus, some funky yeasty notes, and some perfumy florals. The flavor is just OK, with notes of malt, honey, apricotty fruit, hopcitrus, slight yeasty funk, and florals. This one, to me, just didn’t taste very good at all, and the balance seemed way off. The nose wasn’t bad, but the taste was rather bland.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml brown champagne bottle. Crowned, but no cork. Best before July, 2009. Poured out a medium yellow color, with a decent white head. Aromas are of fresh mown hay, some sulfur, slight citrus.
Flavors about the same as aromas. Some hay, slight funk. Decent beer overall. Nothing to write home about though.
