3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber fizzy, slightly hazy body, moderate sized head, disappears quickly, leaving no compact film. Weak aroma, only one discrete tone Belgian yeast; I could not get anymore. Medium body, excellent texture, mellow and pleasant. Low-moderate CO2. Final complex and very balanced, dominates a sweet fruity, very fresh. Finally taste is amazingly balanced, very fruity, reminds me of fresh fruit: apple, apricot. Good hoppy background. Very good!

Poured from bottle into a trappist glass, the aroma is nice with citrus and the yeast prominent, the color is hazy straw gold, the taste is peppery, bitter and some citrus, crisp on the carbonation and the alcohol is noticeable with a warm after effect.

Nose is faintly funky with a bit of pepper and spice. Light and crisp. Fairly heavy carbonation. Super dry. Interesting and quite different.

330ml bottle. Old-world craftsmanship -- classic, refined, highly quaffable. Balanced, malt-forward, prominent Belgian yeast; very "organic." Well-executed. Not ground-breaking, just hits all its targets and knocks them out of the park.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden in color with a frothy white head. Sweet fruityness, some grassy bitter and a bith of some earthy notes in aroma. Hops are present in the taste with hints of some spices as well. Some bready malts along with notes of fruits like apricots in aftertaste. Herbal and slightly dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, ABV 8%, BBE 01/05/2017. Pours a golden orange with a large, white head. Leaves lacing very nicely. Aroma is orange peel, spiciness, lemon, floweriness, light yeast and bread. Taste is spicy, full and grainy. Begins dry and lightly sour, turns sweeter on the end. Orange and zestiness in the beginning. Plasticy hoppiness. Reminds me of the Hopsinjoor. Not too pleasant, Iím afraid. Palate is full and somewhat carbonated.

Not sure about this beer. Itís just a lovely drinkable beer. Itís deceptively easy to drink considering the ABV. Itís quite fresh with the fruity and slightly sweet malts followed by a spicy kick. So in that regard, an excellent summer beer. But i donít get these beers that taste quite similar to a proper regular beer but has nearly twice the price and ABV. I just donít think itís that special.
