1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a glazed over pale golden to yellow color with a slight transparency all about allowing a fair amount of carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell seemed to have an almost overly cooked corn to it. A light weird grainy / grassy heavy sort of kick of wheat came out a bit.
The taste was moderately grassy and somewhat grainy - sweet but an almost overly cooked to almost come across as bland.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sessionability that wanted to show its face but something from the taste makes it somewhat hard to put down.
Overall, I’m not exactly sure what happened with this one but I can’t see for any reason why I would really want to try this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, labeled Green’s original blond ale. BBE 06/2018. From Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with a huge, frothy white head. Nicely dry, with orange peel, spicy notes, pear in aroma. Flavor has fermened sweet fruits, belgian yeast, spicy notes. Alcohol is coming through a little. More dry than sweet finish. Quite nice as it is, but feels raw, think I’d like this even better when a little older. Too straightforward now.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is fresh has tones of fruits (peaches and grapefruits) and some wheat, reminds very much of a witbier. Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. The beer hasn’t got a lot of taste is a bit "plastic" and bland. Palate is thin and easily drinkable, as expected. Overall a poor beer which looks and smells inviting but dosen’t deliver when things comes to show

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak Belgian who the most feels like a tacky and sleazy failed saison. Skim well, but the taste is pretty bland and mediocre.

330ml bottle. Golden body with a medium white head. Fruit, caramel, yeast, hay and spices. Quite ok. Propably stands out more among the gluten free options.
