3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Colour is golden, clear, with a firm white head, lots of lacing. Nose is flowery and spicey with notes of jasmine, lemon peel, ginger, freshly cut grass, traces of yeast and definitely some incense. Taste is fruity with lots of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) and citrus (lemon, lime). Starts fiery and a bit sweet, becomes drier and finishes with refreshing hints of hops. Medium body, leaning slightly to the light side. Well balanced and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blonde with neon white head. Probably some wheat in this one. Nice herbal aroma with a hint of vanilla and yeast. Palate is medium body with long finish. Taste more like a belgian blonde than a Biere de Garde. Missing somewhat in herbs and/or sourness. Quite yeasty with a lot of fruits. Nice everyday Belgian.
