2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Rodman’s. Pours a light to medium brown with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Malty aroma with some dried fruit and faint grapefruit hoppiness. Very thin mouthfeel, watery up front and a malty finish. Average. My drinking buddy said, "I’m surprised a Belgian brewery gets away with putting this out there." Not enough hops to be really called a pale ale, and not enough flavor to be really called good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ De Zon, Goor. Golden oldie. Been drinking this since about 30 years, but not in recent times. Clear copper color. Uneven off white head with reasonable retention and lacing. Aroma’s: fruity, caramel malt, slightly bready. Flavor: grain/malt, ever so slightly sweet. Light bodied. Finishes with a slowly developing mild bitterness. Solid, but of course it was much more special back in the days.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz gusher. Nice transparent nut brown color with small white head and sporadic lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel deep fruit malts, it’s so rich and pretty amazing. Flavor is mostly amber malts, nice creaminess, and sweet finish. I like it.

Pours reddish with some active carbonation and then head dissipates to near nil.
Very little lacing. Taste cherry and malt, sweet overtones, but well balanced. Had a bottle of Grand Cru Rodenbach prior to tasting this, so anything would probably taste somewhat sweet after that sour experience on the palate. This is a very delightful drinkable beer.

Amberkleurig, amper schuim. Veel koolzuur. Ruikt lekker, zacht hoppig. Smaakt erg goed, behoorlijk zuur en een beetje bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap. Nice red with solid finger of head. Aroma is makes, with a hint of berry tartness. Taste is slightly toasted malts, mild cherry and farmhouse funk. Super drinkable. Pair it with some frittes and you have a night. Not worth seeking out.

Fantastic Belgian ale! This is the second cousin to English ales and German Altbier. Wonderful color and aroma, indeed, very Belgian. Easy drinking and full-flavored at the same time. American micros have yet to produce a beer like this! Keep the viscosity down and let the yeast expess itself.
