3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Yeast profile is quite spicy and a bit grassy. Taste starts with some sweetness but continues more balanced and the finish is quite dry with a light bitterness on the aftertaste. Light bodied but quite smooth feeling. Overall it’s a good belgian ale with a nice spicy and floral taste.

Bottled, 330ml from The Spar in Ostend, West Flanders, Belgium. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a simple blond beer, malty sweet with grainy notes and a hint of earthy, leafy hop. There is an underlying caramel note. It’s simple but pretty reasonable because of it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.
Clear golden orange colour with no yeast sediments; One finger head and crumpety white foam which last for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Fragrant aroma of malt, with moderate banana, light red fruits, light metallic, alcohol, light sugar, earth, strong Bel yeast, very light lemon and light grass; Medium sweet taste of malt, with metallic, wheaty tartness, red fruits,floral, molasses, earth, spices, bread, strong yeast, lemon, moderate bitter hops and grass; Medium body. Slick and creamy palate; Mouth Feel is very good maltyness in a slightly thinned and smooth background. Wheaty taste notable with tartness. Red fruit malt base with floral, spice and earthy hops. Nice medium sweetness, slightly bready but very yeasty. Light lemon to round. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is very English: earth, light lemon and light grass in nose; Floral, earth, spices, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is moderate for a lasting, mid-to-light astringent bitter sweet malty finish; Quite dry after taste. Creamy and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is a fine, basic Belgian Ale with good looks, no let up in maltyness, strong bitter sweet English hoppiness and creamy to the tongue. Only the strong metallic taste holds it back somewhat. Not as fragrant as Leffe Blonde, but it’s tasty enough to put all those so-called Belgian Ale rip-offs (like Palm Speciale) to shame. Recommended!
