3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy medium light amber with a thick but quickly receding white head. Aromas of sweet malt with a slight sour tinge. The flavor is very light and there doesn’t seem to be much going on here. A bit of vanilla, baking spice, and light caramel sweetness, but overall somewhat watery. Maybe a bit of grape must. Leaves a slight woody taste behind, but otherwise seems to disappear at the end. Not a bad beer, just not very distinctive.

Deep amber color, big off white head that quickly disappeared. Aroma and taste of malt, spices, yeast and pears. Medium body, average carbonation. Sweet taste with light tartness and surprisingly bitter finish. Nice, fruity Belgian ale.

Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Brugge. Cloudy deeper orange colour with a small creamy head. Strong enough tasting with plenty of smooth pale malts evident in both aroma and taste. There’s a hint of fruit and spice, but not much of either
