2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
20 Oct 2012: beautiful sunny day in the Dutch tourist town of Valkenburg. We sat on some random bar terrace and the beer menu had this on it.
33cl Bottle, best before the end of July 2013: poured into a Grimbergen chalice.
Good clean golden looks: full white crown at first, soon a wisp and collar.
Floral hop nose with mild fruit hints and some yeast esters.
The taste is an OK blend of those floral hops and some hidden malt semi-sweetness. The alcohol and yeast also play a part in ensuring this is one of brand Grimbergen’s better beers.
Body depth isn’t too deep, but it does fine if you consider this as a light bodied Triple. Just above Mr Average.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright golden colour with a medium, firm white head. medium carbonation. Sweet, fruity smell and taste, virtually no aftertaste. A regular triple beer, with nothing to make it stand out of the bunch, but also nothing that sets it back. decent beer.

33 cl. bottle split with Kogymo @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Pours a clear light golden touch orange, big starch white head. Smell is artificially sweet with lots plenty of the core of an apple, cheap cinnamon and instant applesauce. Taste is artificial sweeteners sweet, cheap alcohol, touch plastic and no brand applesauce touch esters, why does it taste like that? Carbonation is high. Body is totally clean and light. Perfectly brewed, perfectly enjoyable. Bizarre flavour profile. I can see this being a big hit with people who say that they do not like beer which is what they were going for I suppose.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Clear amber color, light off-white head, dissipates rather quickly, leaves almost no layer, some lacing; rather modest malty nose, toasted, bread, dough, grass, banana, citrus, bit vinous later on, not spectacular but I enjoy it; sweetbitter, some acidity, ending dry bitter; full body, creamy texture; crisp dry bitter finish, bit peppery. Up till now the best representative of the Grimbergen family.
