3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6%, The Criterion, Leicester. Canít believe Iíve not had anything from this brewer on my Belgian travels. Massive sweet medicinal Belgian snout oozing herbal spice and juniper. Cumin? Dense, almost curryish spice. Slick, pillowy, earthy and sessionable. Octo necked it. Spice, citrus, herbs. Canít be any more specific. Was well on the way by now. Big at 6, but evilly mellow. Nick Drake íNorthern Skyí on the jukebox. Delicious beer. Quite possibly The Greatest Pub On Earth.

quite on the different side, it gives a herbal flavor including mint and rosemary. The malts are nice, the rest works well.

The aroma is yeasty with basement smells hops, and malt. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s not that good.

Pours a thick, cloudy gold color. Not sure how this happened but a little bee looking thing landed in my glass. I swear it came out of the bottle. Didn’t scare me away though. Aroma was incredibly unique with some leather, must, and cheese character. Incredibly carbonated and fizzy texture. Big lemon and citrus flavors as well with a decent body. Thanks to AtlAggie for sharing this one.

Bottle. Very enjoyable blonde ale. Crisp and refreshing with the right amount of bubbly. Nicely lemony and slightly grassy. Yeasty with the right amount of some sweet malt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy sebletitje. Pours a hazy deep gold and straw with nice white head. The aroma is lemon mixed with apples and sugar malt sweetness. The taste starts with sweet malts and grain and quickly turns tart and acidic. Interesting. I canít seem to escape the tartness to find any island of sweet malts, spices or hops to land on . . . and Iím taking on water. . . help!

Bottle courtesy sebletitje. Pours a hazy golden with a large white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of spicy yeast, citrus, and sweet pilsner malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.
