Bevuta al Ma che siete venuti a fa, raramente mi è capitato di gustarmi una birra tanto dissetante ed equilibrata.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso dupont. Pours a clear lighter orange. Smaller head, spotty lace. Nose is a tad sticky, fresh oranges and honey. Taste is quite bitter, herbal, grassy, some medicinal herbal remedy and potpourri bitterness: grass, rosemary, pedals, dried fruit peel. Harsher mouthfeel characteristic of Paradiso’s tap lines. Wasn’t very impressed and to think I almost went to max’s Belgian beer fest just for this beer.

Cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels as "Band of Brothers S01E03". Rated on 28.2.2013.
Pours a clear amber golden colour with a chunky, lacy, white head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbs and some grains. Flavour of slightly sweet fruits, caramel and strong fresh grassy bitterness. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, slightly sweet finish. Rather pleasant. On a side note, I added S01E03 as a new beer entry but it got deleted.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Thin bubbly white head on an light clear amber orange. Quite fruity, with pear, sourish white grapes, and candy sweetness. Flavor has all of the qualities of the aroma, but with a sharper grassy bitterness midway through the taste almost a bit like lacquer. Lighter flattish body. Probably could be in better shape.

hazy amber, thin white head. Nose is toast and stale hops, light sugar. Flavor is lightly grassy, bit of pine and crust mid with more toast finish. Thin and old, thigh still showing balance. Will taste again when younger.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Amber colored pour with nice white frothy head. Nose and flavor bring beautiful combination of lightly sweet malt, hints of rye and grainy bite, light but prevalent hops, and bready yeast. Touches of citrus and apricot as well. Clean and very crisp; superb for a session ale on the palate. Really well done.
