2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Gold, lasting thin white head. Bit syrupy on aroma. Some fruit, candied jellied citrus fruits, but fairly subdued. It does taste somewhat like a tripel, but very low key.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2009 Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Clear golden with brief airy head. Sugary, almondy nose. Slim and dense, pretty much like a low alcohol tafelbier. Some rasiin, but whatever is is covered in thick layers of sticky sugar solution. Burning syrupy sweetness. Yikes, this is terribly unbalanced and contains not much of interest either.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, wood, malts and some alcohol. Flavour is fruits, some wood, mild parfumeishlike notes as well as some acidic notes. Overall very sweet, and not too pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy golden with a small, lacy head. Sweetish, caramely-malty aroma with a hint of diacetyl. Sweet honey-malty flavor with medium bitterness and a bit too high acidity. Medium-bodied, sticky, low-carbonated. A sweetish and sugary brew, yet the acidity pretty much ruins it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Kulminator. Hazy golden with a healthy head. Complex hoppy nose, fruit and pine. Sweetish fruity flavours, but with good bitterness as well. Well-carbonated. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber coloured, little carbonation and a rather small white head. Malty and fruity aroma. Full palate. Finish is light bitter, again fruity with some malty and light alcoholic touches. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy copper colour with a white head. Interesting aroma with sweetness, and a sour gooseberry fruitiness. Taste has bread overlaid with sweetness and some ashy dryness. A lot happening, but on a curiously small scale. Doesn’t quite work for me.

Bottle, ’t Pothuiske, Maastricht with ha1ag. Hazy blonde with a thick white fluffy head. Wet tobacco and hoppy fruit nose. Mouth is sharp hop, followed by malty sweetness, no alcohol present. Finishes sweet and slightly fruity. All round good, really.
