4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at CK. Pours full haze, glowing pineapple with a massive, volcanic head. Huge retention and massive lacing. Nose is a little delicate and relaxed- soft nuances of peach ice cream, vanilla, pineapple. Fresh linen abounds. Very soft. Taste is amazingly fluffy pineapple ice cream. Super aerated and silky palate. No soap or harshness. Grassy herbal hop balance is huge. Up front there is sugary pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew balanced by huge grassy and peppery hops. Long, bitter, pilsner like finish.
sugary pineapple and peach juice up front. Huge hoppy bitterness and
dryness through finish. This was one incredible experience. Wow. Had this next to fresh Taras Boulba on tap and the extra body and extra hop bite on this one is just out of this world.

Golden and citrus fruit nose with a touch of apricot and floral hops. Very dry, just a hint of cotton candy, bright juicy peach, fresh flowers and dusty yeast. Delicious.

Tap. Huge foamy pure white head, very hazy bright light golden yellow. Yeasty, hints of vanilla, floral and some grassy hops. More bitter than aroma suggests, mineral, grass and dry hay finish with some light fruitiness in the middle. Lighter body, soft body and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgian Beer Station.
Pours hazy pale golden with a medium, staying, frothy white head. Aroma has bready malts, piney and earthy hops. Highish carbonation, nice light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet malty, some slight sugary notes, good citrus bitterness. A bit of peach and still slightly earthy yet still really fresh. A fine drink.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
For my 400’th rating I choose this one for couple of different reasons ; it is a beer from my home town brewery, under this label they brewed their first beer, it’s one of the best beers from this brewery and the most solid reason is that simply it was available.
33cl bottle. Yellow and hazy liquid with medium snow white head. Nose : soap fruitiness and yeast, grains and straw. Sip : low to medium density with oily/creamy texture. Light carbonation. Very brief sweet tart start overtaken by complex bitter hops. Well balanced. It’s fruity with some straw like aftertaste. Greatly refreshing. It’s between "Teras Bulba" and "Jambe de bois". My favorite from the brewer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of cheese cloth, flowers, citrus and lemon. Appearance was tinted gold with foamy white head. Flavor is rather hop/herb centered; the finish is dry and quite long. The palate is creamy and bubbly. Good.
