4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a slightly hazy, straw-gold with a small white head on top. Good retention, and there’s plenty of lace left behind. The nose is sharp with Belgian yeast, sour citrus, dry grass, coriander.
This one starts out really spritzy and a bit harsh. A massive amount of carbonation on the palate. Thankfully, though, this smooths out as I sip. Gets much more mellow and cleans itself up. A bit dry on the finish.
Wonderful balance on this one. Completely understand now why this one is rated so highly. Spice, tart yeast, lemon zest, dry crackers. Just a touch of alcohol rounds this one out. Man this is incredibly balanced! Nothing really overpowers here, but every flavor plays their part and adds to the whole. A spectacular beer.
This is a style I don’t drink very often as I haven’t had many that I really crave, but this one jumped to the top of this list. One I will revisit again and again.

Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of yeast, apple and pears, spices, white wine. Taste is citrus, grass, yeast and a touch of alcohol. Kinda boring.

Bière belge par excellence. Goût cerealier mais finalement corps plutôt léger. Houblonnage timide mais agréable.
Loin d’être une grande bière. Pas de surprise ni de grande subtilité. Un classique indémodable à prendre pour ce qu’il est.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle into tulip. Slight acidic fruit aroma. Cloudy orange juice appearance, frothy white head. Even carbonation, tiny bubbles. Spritzy mouthfeel, oily texture. Finish is long, bitter lemon/grapefruit with a touch of caramel. It’s good but I’ve enjoyed other Belgian ales more.

Herber deutlich hefiger Antrunk mit frischen und zitronigen Kräuternoten. Spritzig, milde Bitterkeit. Die Hefigkeit wird dunkler, geringfügig alkoholisch. Leider wenig komplex, dennoch rund. Gut. 8/11/10/11/9/11

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This must be part of my lost ratings, have rated the triple hop series but not the classic. Bottle at my AirBnB, served in a wine goblet it is a bright gold with a thick foamy white head. The nose is grassy, bready and bright green hops. Raspy mouthfeel with some boozey heat down my throat. The taste is sweet golden honey, grass, herbal and very dry in the finish. Good but at 8.5% this is not an everyday sipper for me. The new mini-bottles are a good call.

Bought at sainsbury’s , morecambe, served lightly chilled in duvel glass. Massive white head on top of hazy pale beer . Slightly herby citrus flavor, (not dissimilar to a saison) with a slightly bitter after taste.
