4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got this in the closeout bin at Vaudree in Liege for 1e (can’t figure out why - - the date punched is July ’13). Zesty, bright fizzy texture like well-fermented apple cider, and then the hops hit hard & deep, and then a sourness kicks in, with just the slightest hint of sweetness (sweetness is why I mostly avoid brunes, but this is more a hoppy sour beer). Very lively on the palate - - it just dances all over the place. This is a super tasty and really fun beer. I wish I had bought the whole close-out binful (but I already had over 40 bottles to haul back in my luggage to Germany).

Dark brown with a large, quickly disappearing head. Flavour of hay, bubblegum, raisin, citrus. Very complex taste - more on the sweeter side. Very distinct and enjoyable.

Dark chocolatey brown with a creamy head. Spicy, malty beer, very nice. Actually a very nice drop, reminiscent of Abbaye des Rocs. I could really get on with this.

Head is large, creamy, off-white and slowly diminishing. Body is brown, some sparkling is visible.
Aroma contains loads of fruits (sweet and sour), spices, citrus fruits and brown sugar.
Flavor is light acidic, then light sweet and light bitter and finish is bitter.
Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation.
The flavors are surprising,it's a lot less sweet and more bitter then I expected. Lovely beer, well balanced.

Trying after the Duysters Drossaard. It has the same harsh bitterness in the back that I can’t get past. Again nice pour. Aroma here relatively neutral.

Net als de blonde loterbol een bier met iets te weinig smaak aan naar mijn goesting.
