3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
High carbonated blond ale with medium head. Grassy, wheaty smell and taste but not in the bad way, some hints of fruits. Although too watery. Overall - drinkable beer, not so bad, definitely not my style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared 75cl bottle bb12/2016, tombola win at BBF ’15. Dank, sweetish honey herbalistics suppress their yeast-on-pale-malt origins and flow quietly within the somniferous honeybed of a regional Belgian ale. All the Poperinge hop grasses cannot quicken it to attention. OK meal accompanier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cl bottle decanted into jug. Aroma of orangey, floral hop and sweet grain. Appearance: yep, it’s a blonde. Taste is sweet to begin, but with a balancing light bitterness. Lively on the tongue, with a lemony, sappy, fruity taste that is really quite nice. Dry finish. Overall, not bad. Very drinkable and at this strength, one could enjoy a nice session on this.
