4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 750 ml bottle - Wow, a Belgian blonde ale that I like! This one poured a
sun-golden liquid with a tall white head and a spicy aroma. Tastewise, it was bit "grassy", but well-balanced and quite enjoyable.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London (during their Old Ale festival), with Joeh, Kook, Duff and Maeib. Golden, no head. Smooth, deep, crisp. Wheat and chalk board flavour. Thick mouthfeel, approaching sickly - but not quite. Mixed, but more + than -.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled In the 330ml painted bottle with the signature pink pachyderm. A clear blond straw color...fine bubbled carbonation from bottle conditioning. Frothy white head. Aromas of floral hopping some fruit and musty yeast...very Champagne-like in smell and apperance. Weakly oily palate, hops are subdued in the body, sweetish some spritzyness and detectable alcohol that leaves a yeasty-cider impression when it mingles with the saaz hops and finishes rather abruptly with not much after taste but the alcohol warming. Not the experience I expected after all the hype.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A lot structured, intense body. Foam of long persistence. Mildew aroma and wine cellar. Elegant perhaps too much alcoholic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good. Nce to see the LCBO bring some belgians. Golden yeloow colour and fruity nose almost suggest a triple. Nos and flavour is fruity with a hit of yeast. A little rough around the edges with the alcohol but pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is pretty good, although its balance makes it indistinct at times. Musty, fruity aroma. Unique label, roasted apricot coloring. Peachy, with a nice acid/sweetness/bitterness balance. The finish is pleasantly fruity, with a good bodyweight. Not too fizzy.
