3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fully hazy amber-orange beer with mossy shine; good, stable yellowish head. Lactic nose, grainy & wheat. Quite sharp-fiery taste with caramel, cookies (Petit Lu), and drying grass, even a slight oxydation. Slightly burning, very carbonated MF, medium bodied, and again - I seem to get wheat slickness, even when it is officialy not a witbier. Certainly not bad for a first brew of a beginning brewery. It shows character, and that is getting rare...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, light-amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly sweet cara-malty aroma with a delicately citric and zesty touch, accompanied by notes of coriander. Slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Slightly cara-malty taste with notes of citrus, wheat and coriander; quite dry and slightly sour-fruity and spicy finish. Nothing to seek out for. 07.IV.11

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Lemony nose with grains, bread, some hay. Seems somewhat hoppy. Dark gold-orange, clear, lots of bubbles and a frothy head. Tangy orange and lemon flavor with honey and biscuits, slightly sweet but somewhat tangy and a rather bitter, peppery finish. Nice citrus hop flavor. Spices. Somewhat creamy. I wouldn’t call it a super hoppy beer a la XX Bitter, but it is going in that direction. A bit too fizzy. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Veiled honey-gold with a fine, stable head leaving dabs of lace. Attractive, G+T-like aroma with a botanical freshness, pine resin and crystallised lemon notes. Bright, fresh beer biting crisply with herbal and lemon zest notes, spiky carbonation, a lasting pepperiness suggesting incense and spices; a jasmine-like aftertaste. Crisp, spicy hopping reminiscent of La Rulles. Didn’t touch the sides.

GUSHER. 330 ml. bottle. Purchased @ Bierhalle Deconinck. BBF 25/03/2015. Murky dark peach amber, solid smaller off-white head. Smell is oxidized stale, cereal, honey, hamburger bun, odd,… Taste is bitter, herbal, cereal, honey, oxidized, metallic, supermarket vegan meatballs, chestnut, more old crystallized honey,… Bitter herbal, Chinese spices finish. Thicker regular sweetish BE body. Odd but somewhat satisfactory brew that feels Belgian not necessary in the best of ways. I’m liking it, an interesting experience. The more I drink it, the more I like, very interesting. Great work really.

A Mes rate. Draught at ZBF.
God this was dull. It’s a really run of the mill Belgian blonde ale. Spicy, yeasty, faint malty notes. My god, it’s another one of those.
