3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Weak citric aroma, hint of Belgian yeast. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off quite bready, then turns yeasty in the good old Belgian way. Quite mild, like a mixture between a blonde and a pils. Quite refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Vanha, Helsinki)
Slightly hazy orange, large icecream float head. Hoppy fruity aroma, fleshy fruits, perhaps peach - very Belgian. Sweet malty taste, a bit grainy and slightly vegetably, decent tangy hops, and a touch of ginger. Fizzy in the mouth. Soft fruity hoppy finish. My guess is that this punches at about 4.5%, so it’s probably in reality 6.5% :-)
