2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught sample@Festival brassicole de Tournai 2013. - Brewer talked me into this, looking for a sweeter beer for my mother. Even for her, this honey-spice of a doughey triple was too much to finish. Oily palate, not much foam, dark yellow. Doughey malts and the cloying aroma of a herbal wild honey that I prefer not to associate with beer. probably well-crafted for the style, but this wallonian specialty caters to a generally sweeter palate and would probably please meadheads.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft. According to the bartender, the brewer of this digs American & such styles but doesn’t really brew them. Should he? Dunno. Maybe, but this beer was, in any case a disappointment. Full golden body with a white head. Apple compte aroma. Sweet, very sweet malty taste, dust, tobacco and carrot. Messy and while it can hardly be called crap, it was certainly the most disappointing beer of the night. Hope my next one from them will be better!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ De Kelk. I always mean to get down to ticking these but I always get sidetracked. Bright hazy orange with a white head (solid). Strongly yeasty, almost pure yeast in the nose, light fruits, touch sweet spices, baking dough & some sweetness. Tad synthetic profile, lots of yeast, lightly bitter, touch lightly plastic fruits, caramel & some herbs. Full, heavy yeast body. It is not bad but also a bit too inoffensive for its own good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a bright yellow beer with a soft white head on top. Aroma is fresh, full of citrus and fruity yeasty esters. Flavor has a few citric aspects and some sour bready notes. Medium carbo and a short finish. Easy drinkable, refreshing. Great after a meal!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(From notes 16.11.12) Tap. Served quite cold (too much so). Refreshing aroma, some spice /herb stands out, but what? Perhaps hints of pine. Different.

(Draught at Delirium Tap Bar, Brussels, 19 July 2012) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, apricots and a touch of marzipan. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, dried pineapple and a slightly spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying off-white head that is kind of surprising, since when the bottle is first open, it immediately starts foaming, then when you pour, there is no head at all to speak of. Aroma of apple cider, pears, caster sugar, malt, yeast and a bit of peaches. Full-bodied; Assertive effervescence with grape juice, apple cider and juice and a lot of peach flavour very noticeable. Aftertaste shows some lighter malts, a hint of alcohol and earthiness and a good amount of refined sugars that show for quite a while. Overall, a nice and sweet belgie with a lot of effervescence and a wide variety of lighter fruit flavours. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €3,50 sampled at home in Washington on 13-August-2012.
