3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a golden color, a bit hazy, with a white head that lasts throughout. Aroma’s of candy sugar, some sweet fruit, hints of spices and hopbitterness. Flavor is slightly sweet. Body is on the thin side. Mild bitterness in the finish. I expected a horribly herbal/spicy beer, but this is actually quite a pleasant blond beer, albeit not very special.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden beer, with a pillowy white head, though rather quickly receding to some floating fluffs of foam. Malty aroma, yeasty, notes of spices, fennel, pepper and light paprika. Nose is resembling a good Belgian Tripel. Flavour is nicely malty, fruity, quite hoppy. Also reminding of a Belgian tripel. Some anis. Rather sweet, especially when the initial flavours subdue.
I was rather surprised by this beer, it seems a very decent and balanced brew, even though it contains seitan, herbs and cane sugar. Only flaws seem that the cane sugar sweetness is a bit too hard and unbalanced at times, and the beer leaves a rather prickly feeling on the tongue.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Arôme malté, note épices, herbes avec un nez qui est dominé par le grain, blé/seitan.
En bouche, simple bière blonde, touche de sucre de cane, palais épais/grains, houblon reste discret tout comme le malt, épice donne ce côté fenouil. Bière qui reste faiblarde et dont le fini reste relevé par les épices.

Pale to golden coloured ale with a pleasant flavour of spices. There’s something peppery about it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Courtesy of Papsoe. It pours a slightly unclear body, golden in color and with a dense, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma has a pleasant peppery touch, it’s citrusy, peachy fruity with yeast and some pale malts. The flavor is quite sweet, would like it dryer. The spiced touch from the aroma is missing, but the fruity sweetness is present. Some faint notes of alcohol gives a little warmth, it’s sweet and pleasantly carbonated. A rather generic beer, but not bad. Would like it more pronounced. 101027
