3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A steady pour into my Bruery tulip produces a fat, two-finger thick, lightly tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated, but bright, amber color that shows a clear, bright amber depth when held up to the light. The aroma smells of lightly spicy hops, lots of cracker like malt, and perhaps a touch of English biscuits. There is a light cider like fruitiness to the nose, which gets a little floral like at times.
Dry up front, but it picks up a little sweetness in the middle and finish, which brings out a cider like note. Soft, caramelized malt notes, a touch of straw like pale wheat cracker notes, perhaps hint of hop herb / spice character in the finish, but sort of a metallic note is there as well. The body is fairly light, and this is definitely effervescent.
Cider is definitely the dominant characteristic here in both the flavor and nose; not bad, but fairly lackluster.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml cork and caged bottle from Les Vignerons. Huge pop from this one! Dark amber, quite hazy, with a huge, fluffym forever lasting off white head. Tons of strawberry & cream upfront, as close to the actual candy as possible. Slightly funky in a milky/lacto kind of way, slightly peppery and floral, with some more fruity reminiscence in the background. Pleasent malty sweetness upfront, silky and smooth mouthfeel, super mild astringency just before a short but powerful earthy and spicy bitterness. A hint of hazelnuts and candied orange peel in the background. The alchool is extremely well hidden. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Different but tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with a huge and fiizzy white/tan head. Like licking drywall. Bland, but still off. There is the faint shadow of a Belgian-like yeast and tartness, but it’s deep below the overall taste.

nice enough house/table beer, but the price here in the states prevents it from being such a beer. amber malts with light hopping and a present but in the background belgiany yeast. a little dusty.

Lichtbruin licht troebel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en licht zoet met sporen van anijs en drop. Uitstekend bier, smaak blijft gemiddeld lang hangen.

Decent Amber beer. It feels, smells and looks like a amber. Nothing special, nothing out of the ordinary. A shame.

bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nice aroma of slightly sour malt. Hazy dark amber color, solid beige head, no lace. Taste is sour malt that adds some caramel and earth before a carbonated swallow takes over. Slightly more bitter on a smooth medium finish. Overall, a solid fizzy ale.
