3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma from the bottle indicated the presence of hop in the beer. In the glass, it was more about Belgian Ale or season.
For the taste, it’s great. It’s kind of the beginning of a gueuse like beer directly followed by the bitterness of the (Belgian) hop.
Don’t be fooled by the label on the bottle, which doesn’t sell dreams at all, it is a nice find definitly worth the try.

Nice hop aroma upon opening the bottle. Fizzy head quickly receding. Soft first lambic impression in the mouth then it turns a slight orval like feeling. Light but full of flavours.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Belgian blonde inspired by the World War I commemorations. Sticky, lacing, off-white, dense but thin head over a deep golden blonde beer, clear but hazy with deposit. Aroma of freshly cut orange peel, bread dough, red apple, unripe peach, pineapple, banana, grass, straw, cake and quite a lot of iron. Fruity, estery onset, sweetish fruitiness, yeasty with smooth mouthfeel, typical ’velvety’ feel of oatmeals like a downtuned Tripel Karmeliet, metallic ’zing’, phenolic spiciness in the finish along with grassy and leafy hop bitterness. Quite well-balanced, but the metallic feel bothers me a bit.
