4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle, pours a cloudy apricot color and makes a fluffy white head. Lacing cascades down my glass with very compact, dense bubbles drifting down as I imbibe this. Strong yeast in the nose with a hint of vinegar. Light peppery spice flavor with coriander, lemon, yeast and alcohol. Medium to full palate with peppery carbonation, finishes quite dry. Excellent strong pale, I really enjoyed it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s years since I’ve had this. Nose is yeasty, esters, peach strawberry. Taste is esters, straw, strawberry, pear, lots of banana with a dry thin finish.
It’s a bog standard triple, that would be nowhere if it wasn’t for the fancy bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Pours gold with a foamy / airy head. Aroma is bready and floral. Taste is the same with some fruity notes on the tail. In a few years, this could be a strong contender to usher in the mainstream Belgian beer craze (Heads up InBev / Molson Coors / Heineken).

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Farbe: kräftiges klares Gelb.
Schaum: schnell weg, vgl Helles.
Nase: Sehr eigen. Honig wie in einem Met, dazu aber Citrus, und grasige Noten.
Geschmack: auf der Zunge überraschend sauer, feinperlig. Abgang dann noch leicht bitter.
Leicht bitterer vor allem aber säuerlicher Nachgeschmack...
Net so meins, erinnert mich an "Nordisch Herb", wobei die Aromen schon recht einmalig sind, eher wie ein Geuze.
