2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Compact white head on top of a murky, dull straw coloured body. Light malt aroma along with some peach and banana. Flavour is fairly smooth although a little light on, a little grainy, lemon zest and the 6% alcohol is not that noticeable. Definitely not a big beer or anything but certainly easily drinkable and could have quite a session of these.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, orangey golden colour with a small, creamy head. Some malt and a small, dry bitterness. Actually has a strong alcohol presence in spite of the rather suddued alcohol for a Belgian. Reminds me more of a strong lager. Have a suspicion that this is actually just a renamed "Antoon". I’m sad to say this, but De Koninck hasn’t really made a decent beer since Cuvee d’Antwerpen in 1993. 200505

Bottle. Sweet peach, apple and chocolate aroma. Light yellow color with small head. Sweet apple flavor initially with malty middlle and moderate bitter/astringent finish. Nice but not spectacular.

Clear deep gold with almost no head. Chocolate malt in the aroma and flavour. Medium bitter. Some good use of hops. More of the same from De Koninck. Not much depth. Number explain it better.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted at the Belgian Beer café, Perth. It was served up in it’s own wide mouth tulip glass, and the appearance seemed as good as this beer got. Hazy gold, with an inch of white foam that dissipated back quite quickly, but produced good lace. Fresh and clean citrus aroma, lemons, oranges, grapefruit and cantaloupe. The fruity esters were all quite light on, and squared off with an underlying leafy hop note. Very clean in the mouth, hoppy and quite dry. Very subtle in flavour and not what I expected at all, it seemed almost watered down. Light bodied and spritzy in carbonation, it had the feel of a pale lager (this brewery is famous for it’s pasteurised bottled Alt-style hybrids, but I don’t know if this is one of them) and finishes off with a crisp fruity swallow. Similar esters and flavours as the aroma, but all too subtle and subdued. Not a bad beer at all, in fact it could easily be downed one after the other, in quick succession. Sessionable, but undemanding.

Clear and blond with a slim white head. Light malty, biscuity aroma. Hoppy, sweet, yeasty and grapefruity taste. Also a slight staleness and metallic edge. Light to medium bodied, low carbonation. Not a very happy beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear darker blond beer with a small head. Light burned wood aroma. The taste is floral and fruity with a sharp woody bitterness. I was a bit surprised drinking this. It has character.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An orange beer with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma is spicy with coriander being most dominant. The flavor is sweet caramel with some spicy notes. An average beer.
