3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a two year old bottle. This golden ale has a long lasting lacy belgian head (wish my wife did as well). There is quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The aroma reveals sweetness, malty, doughy and clean. It is very balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness. There is an overiding dry phenolic-almost solvent like finish. It is not a brewing so much as a yeast induced quality which might make this an isolated incident (this bottle). Overall it is a tasty brew but needs refinement.

A golden beer with a white and medium head. The nose is aromatic, fruits, bananas, flowers, honey, sweet mandarin and some wheat. Taste of fruits, wheat, bananas, some flowers and only hint of spices. Presence of alcohol can be noticed but not to taste. Bananas after pouring the yeast. Medium bodied, quite fresh and aromatic. Actually, quite nice beer, easy but still tastefull with rich of nuancees.

Completely hazy blonde with a with head that winds up being left in the glass when the "beer" is gone. Awesome. This beer would be mediocre but its Belgian so it kicks some. It has that open-aire biscuit aroma but this is subdued and gives way to a mildly sweet danky malt character and a lively body with a mellow palate. Bland, bittersweet malt and Belgian yeast are the 2 icings on the cake here. I’m enjoyiny this more than I should and I don’t know why. Maybe its lively palate and lack of sweetness truely make it one of the better beers in the world. Enjoyed at Frite Belgium on Tap in Wan Chai.

Bottled in Frape. Color is warm hazelnut brown colour, thin foamy head. Sweet nose. Aroma is fruity walnut. Flavour is the same with yeasty tones. Alcohol stings through (8%!). finishes with long sour yeasty taste. Nicely composed beer.

Hazy dark blond with solid head. Aroma is yeasty, grassy. Flavour is quite tart with some orangey citrus notes and peppery yeast. Quite a strong bitter, aftertaste.

Disappointing for a belgian blonde 8%. Taste OK, but has too little taste and aroma for an ale with 8%
