2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy golden colored, frothy white head. Sweet candied and a bit sticky aroma, notes of yeast and hay. Salty and citrusy flavor. Sharp and unbalanced and not a beer for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and quite spicy, while the flavor is wheaty and spicy with coriander stading out - both the wheat and the coriander lend dryness to the dry end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Oh man, it took me a long time to find this beer. Lots of kilometres travelled along tortuos Wallonian roads and road directions in French. When we finally found the brewery, the brewmaster wasn’t home - he was at work! We did however manage to find the beer in a small store, that sold local products. Slightly perfumed aroma. Pale in colour, very carbonated and an overwhelming yeast-sediment, which makes the last drop almost grey. Quite harmonic "blonde" with sweetness as well as an underlying bitterness. 091004

The lower 8cm of this 75cl bottle is filled with the most unbelievable funky sight - like the bottom of an aquarium/terrarium left without cleaning for a month. It urges me to go very easy at the pouring - it looks as if not only the cold haze, but the whole protein break is still left behind. With the noise of a gunshot, the cork removes itself from its rightful place, and liberates the unholiest looking horde of UFO’s (Unidentified Floating Objects) ever witnessed. I’m no Brit, allergic to murky beer after putting fishbladder in a his cask, but this is like one of those oil/water lamps on a bad psychedelic trip. A bit of fishing actually proves at least one of the UFO’s to be solid!!! The beer itself is (presumably) lemon-yellow. Huge (surprise!) white head, collapsing. The nose is a nice, fresh lemony/citrussy concoction, not unlike kafir-leaf. Touch of coriander. OK, here we go for an half hour of front-teeth filtering. The taste proves itself to be perpendicular on the nose - an oppressive, slightly bitter, spicey taste, like mannah, or some other pharmacy-derived stuff. Very weak, too. I cannot free myself from the thought that all my dental filtering leaves a lot to be desired, not to mention a fluffy, moldy coating on my tongue, and a whole microbiologically unedited plaque on the teeth... A stale horseradish-bitterish flavour returns with every sip, lots of carbonation look after some acidity, but all in all, very little taste and virtually no aftertaste. This is absolutely disastrous - especially after the Br. du Brabant blonde, tried a day earlier. Two brand-new Belgian breweries to me, but what a world of difference...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark blonde color, lots of yeast floating around, no head. Nice bottle. Yeasty, fruity aroma (banana). Quite sweet, a bit peppery flavor. A very nice, full-bodied and refreshing beer. Much like sahti.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hay yellow, big white head. Herbal and lemony aroma. Big carbonation, a bit of a witbier character. Still some herbal taste I cannot pin down, som fruitiness.
