3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle courtesy of sebletitje, cool a Brussels brewed beer, pouring up slightly hazy deep gold with copper hues and tall near white head. The aroma is on the nose-prickly side with some yeast and some yeasty spice and then picking up tart citrus notes and pineapple. The taste has a fresh bright yeasty spiciness as well as lemon to lime and toward sort of a peach note or two. It has a little tartness as well and finishes crisp and refreshing but not light on flavor. Nice stuff.

Malty, hoppy taste with apricots, orange peel, a touch of resin, hints of yeast and a generous citric, resiny bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33cl from de la senne - labelled as #2) pour cloudy very pale golden with a tall off-white head showing good retention and lacing. healthy yeast, sulfur, very grassy and herbaceous, citrus, grapefruit, pine; pils and pale spicy and bready maltiness, plenty of other spices. average carbonation, light body - oily and creamy mouthfeel, assertive grassy-spicy-peppery finish. seems a lot more belgian than the version brewed at tdd - perhaps an authentic yeast combined to a more herbaceous hop varietal. nice offering!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear blond. Very bitter. There’s not much here besides bitterness though. Hops profile doesn’t have a lot of body other than the bitter. Palate is pretty simple. Not bad.
