2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beetje bruingele kleur als pis na een paar bakken koffie. Weinig schuim. Ruikt niet zoveel. Iets zoetzuur. Smaakt een beetje bitter. Niets bijzonders.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blond colour with thin, lasting lacy head. Both the aroma and taste are a bit rough and unrefined. Overly sweet and with a metallic tasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is rich fruity malty and a little medicinal. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a yeasty, slightly nutty palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, cognac-like colored, clear beer with a modest foamy head. It has a sweet aroma which is quite present. It tastes slightly sweet on the tongue, but quite bitter in the back of the mouth. It has a slightly bitter, licorice like aftertaste.
Mooi, cognac kleurig, helder ogend bier met een bescheiden kraagje. Het aroma is zoet in de neus, en ook aardig aanwezig. De smaak is lichtzoet voorop op de tong, maar achter in de mond enigszins bitter. Een licht bittere dropachtige nasmaak.

Clear yellow brown, white head. Kind of sour blond beer, with yeast, something herbal and quite some bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Better than I expected.
Pours a golden beer, clear liquid with very small white head.
The aroma was nice but hard to figure out what I smelled. I think floral.
It tasted light bitter, with an short duration.
Light body, thin and watery texture, with a nice lively carbo.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
300 ml bottle, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6,5%.
Nice thick white head, two fingers tall.Good retention and a nice lace around the glass after it went down. Light orange golden colour on the body, slighty hazy.
Lots of fruits on the aroma, apples, bananas, lots of bubblegum and some spices too.
Tatse is kinda sweet/sour, turns into a hoppy bitternes on the aftertaste. Unfortunately it doesnít meet the expectations created by the aroma. Somewhat blunt taste and metallic too.Even the bitterness, afterwards misses a kick that would make the difference between the indifferent starting taste and the bitter aftertaste.
Thin body and light carbonation. Only a bit dry on the palate.
Overall, I canít say I am disappointed as it is a good beer aand the alcohol -I forgot to mention- is well hidden, so it would make for a session beer, but there is a ton of session beers out there, with more taste and less forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
30cl bottle: best before the end of Feb 2013. Poured into a Westvleteren chalice on 8th Dec 2012 @ home.
Light golden body with a fast fading white head, looked a typical Blonde really.
The smell was Bubblegum sweet with a yeasty undertone: strange but true.
Tasted of the aforementioned Bubblegum and yeastiness, malts also come into play and there is a hop crisp, bitterness towards the end of each sip. A little too sweet even for me: I prefer the sweeter, maltier brews normally, but this is boardering on sickly.
Strange brew to be honest: Iíll not be buying another, even though I almost enjoyed it.
