3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dulled golden. Diminishing ivory cover. Gently estery aroma letting a peachy and slightly grainy yeast nose paired with a good pils malt base. Slightly stale yeast character. Thin body tries to develop a creaminess through soft yet abundant carbonation. Floral character is on the edge of getting papery, I assume this is not one for aging. Not bad, perhaps a bit too linear for my tastes and could use a larger hop bite, it feels a bit too juicy sweet with this fruity maltiness. I’ve no idea what hops they used in this, but they appeared interesting to me, salty, herbal and pineapple like. I don’t remember that feel in many other beers.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy tan colour; yeasty aroma of bread, apricots, dust and a hint of alcohol. Slightly tart body is balanced by a malty-fruity sweetness. The finish is a little sweaty with apricots and raisins.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tropical fruit yeast aroma with consequent flavors, dominated by the biting yeast...A lactic touch undermines the omnipresent fruity yeast, and a watery end eases quaffability...A simple Belgian blond with no outstanding qualities and, while quenching, filled with disappointing moments of vacuity...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Full bodied blonde beer, with a slightly burn’t fruity aroma and a strongly alcoholic flavour. Overall ok, but not as good as the majority of Belgian ales.
