3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen, 13 Feb 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with tropical fruit, apples and citrus. Fruity taste with notes of tropical fruit, spices and fresh grass. Slightly above medium body, slightly sweet and yeasty. I’ve no notes of garlic, so I suppose it’s fairly well hidden (thank you). Nice and spicy Belgian blond, not straying too far from the middle of the road.

Bottle in natural foods shop Amsterdam. Hazy golden body, healthy head. Nice nose of hops. Strong first taste of hops and bitter, then gets grassier and spicier. I liked it quite a bit but the herbal bite overwhelming at times.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
EBF2008. It’s a hazy, golden beer with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of sweetness, malt, and herbs that turns out to be garlic. The flavour has sweetness and the notes of malt, yeast and garlic meet in an OK way that gives a herbal bite and overall impression. It could be fun to drink with a piece of lamb.
