3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml Bottle as a gift:
Light fruits & floral notes with some citrus too but this is quite light & I could detect light alcohol & grain. Some sweetness appears with some spice too & there is even some banana towards the end.
Clear light straw, almost golden with a 2cm foamy white head & great retention.
Spicy & more fruity that the nose indicated but also with more alcohol too. There is some grain, yeast & plenty of sugar with apple, citrus & grapes not far behind. There was a bit of bread & some sweet, almost floral like flavours too.
Spicy, tangy & a fair bit of alcohol. Hints of sweetness appear throughout with some grain. The beer was dry, well carbonated & nothing special really.
It was swings & roundabouts with this one really, it didn’t look great but smelt better, sadly the taste couldn’t improve on the aroma though. The beer definitely wasn’t a terrible one but I’ve had a lot better Belgian pale strong ales than this, Duvel everyday of the week over this one for me.
