3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled this as Grotten Flemmish Ale. A hazy yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of lemon, and a slight acidity. The flavor is sweet malty again combined with an acidic note. A quite simple beer. Had expected more, since I really enjoy the brown version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of citrus and other fruit. Some light spice notes. Beautiful light apricot color with a white head that persists stubbornly. Citrus, stone fruit, spice, yeast and a whole lot more at about the same time. Arguably some flowery hop, but at least some bitterness towards the end., while something like a light honey sweetness stays with the tongue. Dry finish on the whole, but not desperately astringent. Wonderful mouthfeel. Very clean, very refreshing, very rewarding.

750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) Bottled 2014/11 BB 2018/11 Drunk 2015/12
Initially a very fruity aroma, Anna’s more than mine, and mine is more perfumey. I just get a hint of tomato once or twice, some mint, but some mashiness too. Light palate, pleasant carbonation. Gentle malty body, Perfumey and light, classic belgian aspects, reminds me of chimay red, super mellow and very complex, changes from the front to the back of each sip. The wave of fruits and esters that then gives way to nice dry bitterness. I have another bottle, I will let that age plenty.
