3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has a gold-yellow color and a light tinted large head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma contains a lot of herbs, with tones of coriander. Further flowers and a hint of oranges. The taste is full and strong also dry with tones of walnuts. The finish is soft, with a nice bitterness from the hops. They’ve done a good job with this beer, it reminds me a little of triple beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl Pours pale yellow, like a simple eastern european lager. Either a strong single hop aroma, or a smooth balance of multiple hops. Pleasant and uniform. Fair malty base, and strong bitterness. Feels like a homebrew, and has some powderness to it. I do not know why - there is no sediment. Feels like water used is rather hard. In a blind tasting, I would consider this to be a fortified lager, with a strong malty base. It Smooth textured, medium carbonation, gentle and easy finish for the ABV. Good to try, as it is not a typical BSA in my opinion.

Lovely maltiness, toasted caramel, candy sugar, somewhat berries, light herbal, citrusy hop impact this time doesnt ruin Belgian. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness.
Decent, solid brew

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Slightly hazy deep golden colour, durable large frothy white head. Flowery and herbal hop nose alongside the typical belgian fruity estery aromas. Taste is well balanced between belgian sweetish malty character and subtle classic continental hop features. Medium body, medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel, decent hoppy finish, alcohol is well hidden. Nice, well rounded hoppy belgian strong ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Troebel gouden kleur met goede kleverige kop schuim. Geur is hoppig en fruitig. In de mond is t wat alcoholisch, fruit en zoetig. De finish is hoppig maar nog wel in balans, niet zoals een IPA. Fruitig en pittig hop biertje. Wel lekker, maar ik ben geen hophead.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@home. Two finger foam. Orange haze. Peppery Spice notes. Dry some alcoholic mouthfeel. Love the hop alcoholic balance. The malts subdue the yeast and hops. Still nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nagyon erős keserűsség, ami sokáig megmarad utóízként. Határozottan gyümölcsös, kissé savanykás íz.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy golden, creamy ivory head. Big apricot aroma - both fresh and dried, some corn? The taste has a pretty big honey pale sweetness with notes of tart fruit, balanced and died up by a pretty strong bitterness with quite a bit of alcohol in it. Some corn grits here and there. Quite nice, maybe too boozy.
