3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown golden color. Typical Glazen Toren aroma: Ementhaler cheese, yeast, hint of orange juice. Taste starts with a slightly sour fruitiness (-dried- oranges), grass/hay, does not turn too bitter which suits this beer well. Ideal for ending warm summer nights. Aftertaste is ripened cheese. Not bad (not at all), however, the their Saison d’Erpe beer is more robust in terms of aroma and palate, and tastes better in my opinion.

Sampled from bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub. Clear orange color, medium sized off-white head. Pretty sweet aroma with some candy in there as well. Taste malts, some wood somehow, sweetness. Good balance. Quite nice actually.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with a huge white head. High bead. Aroma of hay, oranges, glacé ginger, herbs, pepper. Mouthfeel is not as highly carbonated as it looks like it’s going to be and is quite creamy and soft. Very sweet with loads of candi sugar, peach, light oranges, vanilla. Subtle floral bitterness with some spices. Quite light bodied with just a breath of alcohol at the end to suggest its strength. Dries out, but only a little bit - and it means it’s overall a bit too sweet for me. But I guess without it the spiciness might have been a bit harsh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light smell. Hoppy character with hints of raisin and fruit. Nice red appearance and foamy head. Bittersweet. Fresh, short finish. Very enjoyable and special.

Fruchtig herber Antrunk, milde Kräuternoten. Der Alkohol ist erkennbar, stört aber nicht. Hell getreidig, die Fruchtigkeit sinkt. Milder und trocken herber Abgang. OK. 11/10/9/8/8/9

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint glass
Yeast right off the top, then orange, and lemon, and finally some caramel and pepper. It’s a cloudy amber with tons of particulates and a 1/2 creamy and 1/2 frothy mottled off white to tan head. Yikes...not looking to great. Taste is orange, and yeast, lots of malts with late peppery hops. The mouthfeel is very creamy and a bit chalky with a slight alcohol burn at the end. Quite good, but the appearance and chalkiness really hurt this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright ruby tinted orange with a thick, bubbly white head. The nose is zesty and citrusy with light peppery esters and mild grassy hops. Mild toasted malts, caramel and a soft creamy palate. Quite sweet and savoury with a crisp, fruity with a zesty, somewhat bitter finish. As good as the other Glazen Toren brews.
