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!

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, labeled as Schieve Tabarnak #2, ABV 6.3%. Slightly hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, some alcohol, malts, light fruity, grassy hops, reminds me of a good tripel. Flavour is medium sweet, light floral, malty, yeasty, light fruity, some honey, firm grassy bitter finish with some alcohol bite. Medium-bodied. Good.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Murky golden with a medium, firm head. Spicy nose with coriander and ginger, herby hops, and caramely and pale maltiness. Flavor is herby-hoppy with coriander spiciness and a very dry, long finish. Medium body, fizzy CO2, reasonably refreshing. Something like Saison Dupont with more hops and spices, different yeast, and evend drier finish. Quite nice as such, although I prefer more fruity ones. 2645
