3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle @ Ravintola Gloria, Kuopio. Rated @ 2.7.2009.
Slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. Classic Belgian ale on the nose with the yeast, citrus and spices. Mild sour flavour of dry fruits, wheat, vinegar. Medium bodied with a bit watery mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Overall a easy-to-drink Belgian ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ some Cafe in Brussels, near the EU Commision HQ. :-) Hazy orange body, small white head. Nose is fruity hops, yeasty tones and pale malts. Taste is smooth, with pale malts and hints of yeast and grassy hops. Slightly bitter finish. Overall not exactly a treat, but an OK blonde Belgian ale.

Live rating. Bottle at CASK Pub & Kitchen on 10 Sept 2010 hazy gold whitish foam. Cheesy yeasty notes in aroma, then fruity in-mouth with plenty of mild ginger and spice. Touch of smoke. Citric touches towards a bittersweet end, on a zingy mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle and close to it’s best before date. Thin white head, hazy orange beer. Aroma is malt with some hop notes. Tastes a bit odd, but not in an unpleasant way. Love the spiciness running through this dry and hoppy beer. Very tasteful beer for 5.5 ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle at Cafe Amsterdam. Hazy and opaque with affirm thin head. Spicy and fruity at the same time, this drinks with a funky farmhouse appeal and a slight acidic bite. Bring me some creamy cheese! (#3956, 8/1/2010)

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a cloudy light orange with a thin white head that left wispy lacing. Potpourri, dried orange peel, orange candies in the nose. Taste is dry all the way- packed with herbs and spices. Full dry, no residual sweetness. Pretty good.

Started the night with this one, and it was a good choice. Surprisingly and easily drinkable, but with plenty of bitterness that was unexpected. Some citrus and spiciness came through, then more hits of bitterness in the finish.
