3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared corked & caged, 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a presentable, fairly lasting head of soft white foam, and good cling to the ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light plantain, some spicy phenols, light fruit as a mixture of pit fruit & citrus, and candy/syrupy sweetness. The taste continued the light fruitiness and amped sweetness, with lively carbonation, moderate bitterness, and a steady but non-overpowering warmth, in a somewhat medium body. A fairly decent, Golden Strong Ale, but would have preferred some dryness, and a little less sweetness.

Diepere frisse smaak. Lekkere blonde met een fine nasmaak. Mooi blonde kleur met lichte schijn.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden color. Pears, peaches, bready, fruity nose. This is a 2009 version but super smooth body, alcohol so well hidden, body is super well integrated. Malt with some fruity and bready notes. This beer has peaked and it’s brilliant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light, airy aromas. Some spice, some light fruit, and light caramel. Much richer on the palate, bright and peppery with a long finish and a very good pairing with rich food.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Belgian yeast, hops, sweet fruit.
Golden/yellow beer with a huge white head thanks to all the carbonation.
The foam tastes like fruit juice and that’s not even the beer itself. Starts sweet with a mix of everything mentioned in the aroma. Really juicy and fruity, amazing.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow with no head. Aroma of tangerine. Taste is very sweet, too much sugar. Still citric and malty. But too sweet. Not my style.
