4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Hazy pale gold with good dense white head. Lovely aroma - bananas, citrus, hint of peppery spice. Medium bodied, smooth, creamy soft carbonation. Excellent taste - rich, complex without being heavy. There’s quite a lot of sweetness, and some nice light fruitiness (again banana and citrus) at the start. It warms up in the mid palate with the alcohol providing some bite - it’s well integrated. Peppery spice notes develop and there’s some reasonable bitterness in the finish. An excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow, good head and lots of sparkle. Smell of citrus, hay, malts. Balanced taste - hints of peach hidden-but stops, doesn’t go down the sweet path. Finishes with a bitter taste - strong coriander and cinnamon taste. A good one - but too balanced. Stops somewhere on the way to a triple karmeliet.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour: pale gold. Firm white head.
Nose: grass, herbs, citrus, lemon, wheat. Hints of dough and hay.
Flavours: biscuit like grain, more citrus. Vanilla and syrup. Alcohol is noticeable.
Finish: long, grainy, fruity and slightly bitter.
Verdict: well made beer, but it reminds me a little of Karmeliet and you shouldn’t compare. But it’s no alternative.
