3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
#1300 Belgian beer. 33 cl. bottle split by 3 @ ’t Rusteel. Faintly hazy golden with a creamy white head. Nose is indeed as promised by the staff, very fruity, lots of sweet orange syrup mixed with oodles of candy sugar, very sugary & heavy on caramel syrup. Taste is lots of candy sugar, very sweet with lots of marmalade oranges, boozy, esters, slight floral bitterness, lots of sweet esters,… Carb. is pretty high, candy sugar influences the body as well. Pretty nicely done, touch too sugary for me probably.

24/III/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BBE: 2014 - bottled: X/2012 (2013-264) Thanks to Sofie and Isabelle for the bottle!
Clear golden orange beer, big solid whipped cream like white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, bit sugary, spicy, dry, peaches, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity, citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops, grassy, pretty spicy, certain recognisable yeast character that is in a lot of Gulden Spoor beers. Aftertaste: citrus, bitter hops, spicy, little sweet, alcohol noticeable, yeasty touch. Very nice spiced up saison or Belgian IPA or whatever you want to call this. I love it!!

Lacey headm fast gone over clear golden beer. Grass, herbal hops. bit sweet-malty as well. Faintly spicy. Sweet malts, dry grains, bready. Very slick, even sticky; medium bodied. Not bad. just a tad sticky even. Might be the bottle.
