3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled@Delirium Cafe, Brussels) Hazy golden with a smallish head. Honey-sweetish, slightly vegetably aroma with hints of alcohol. Quite acidic, sweetish-malty flavor with some fruitiness and very little hops. Medium-bodied, slightly slicky and foamy palate. Decent, a very basic blonde - not very interesting.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Today at the new farm brewery. Light hazy orange-golden beer. Good bitterness like Oravl. Taste bitterness, but not to bitter, hoppy.
The people are there,
everyone like this beer !

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Original version from Picobrouwerij Alvinne Head gone in seconds; very lightly hazy orange-golden beer. Spicey nose with some hints of citrus and some malts, bubble gum. Grainy taste like from oats, crude bitterness, not heavily, but lacks hoppy aromatics. Finish/retronasal is dull spicey like mustard powder or horseradish, and my co-taster complains of acetic acid. Very titillating MF despite no apparent high carbonation. Yet the beer is dead after a minute or two. Needs some serious work. I do not know what the dull-spicey bitterness causes, but I fear it had better go.
