A Mes rate: Tap at Le Poechenellekelder. Advertised as a "special". Actually it’s nothing like. Huge rocky head. Tripel type nose and flavour. Quite hoppy. A little spice. *Yawns*

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, slow pearling carbonation, huge golden lacing fluffy head. Citrus, fresh green and light wooden (corked) aroma. Fruity base, fresh hops, pine, a bit cork again - curious that - the cork itself is fresh and undamaged.
Rich creamy mouthfeel, fairly lightbodied though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy golden pour with 1-finger creamy white head. Aromas are floral, spicy, with a strong hop and citrus component, and a tad of soapiness. The flavor is very floral and dry palated, with some spice notes, and a strong hopcitrus character that seems to intensify as this one warms. Solid palate complexity and balance for this one, and a sizable sediment layer on the bottom of the bottle.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy amber body with a small white head. Aroma offered nothing of interest. Some yeast and fruit notes and a touch of spice but all too subtle or faint to impress. Medium body, low carbonation. The flavor was also lacking character. Some sweet and sour notes, a touch of spice, but basically unremarkable and forgettable.

Bottle. Pours an orange-gold with a frothy white head and sticky lace. The aroma largely consists of bread, pears, and oranges...yeasty cookies too.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This corked and caged bottle poured a very large sized head of foamy white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing from a very thick head. The aroma was doughy with a farmhouse horse blanket musty note. The crisp clean mouth feel was tingly at the start then strengthened in the finish. The flavor was malty with some hoppy doughy notes to it.
