1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
At source, 01V2014, unwittingly mixed in with my meal-accompanying draught sampler. Strawberry Sunday, vanilleijsje van de car met aardbeisiroop: long time no see. I hear you have become a beer, alas I have grown up to gain a grownup palate. Farewell, Strawberry Sunday down the boscoli & bocht drain. Que les années ’80 à Mariembourg vous bénissent.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bit soapy-cramy yellowish head over foxy-copper beer. Appaling sweet-perfumed reek, as something made for the toilet of British female teenagers. Or a Cadbury filling. Scorched caramel with the worst artificial fruit flavours. Rather well-carbonated, very faint burning MF, backthroat syrupy slickness. Des Fagnes - there’s one thing I have to admit about them - they never let you down. Just as you thought it couldn’t get worse...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of Lipton tea with forrest fruits - not bad - but just not very beer-like. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of forrest fruits as well as light notes of wood, leading ot an artificially sweet finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Hazy amber golden with tiny floating impurities and a small off-white head. Distinct berry notes - blueberries - are showing in the nose. Medium body, very sweet berry accents, so intense that I bet they cannot be pure fruit alone. No real hop bitterness. 230808

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by fonefan. A deep golden, more or less clear beer with a decent beige head. There’s just some micro-sized floaties disturbing the view. Very berryish aroma, blueberries very evident, with generic forest-berries as well. The same goes for the flavor, which also has some menthol notes and sweetness, and finishes berryish. Medium to full body and a little carbonation. A really special one, nice though, but I doubt I would finish a bottle on my own. (080823)
