3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nicely-balanced strong bottle-conditioned Belgian blonde. It poured a gold colour with a big lasting white head that left some lace. Looks great. Citric hops in the intense, sweetish aroma. Lots of alcohol there too. Intense flavours. Surprisingly spritzy mouthfeel before the alcohol kicks in for a warm, lingering finish. Lots of juicy fruit on the tongue. Very rich but the alcohol is well integrated. (Bottle)

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 THis is the first HIgh fermentation beer I have ever tried, at least that I remember, and it was deliscious. I do not know what is it consisted in, but it has a rotten flavor that many can find gross, but I really like it, like celumen coloured.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale, golden colour with a good, creamy head. Citrus and malt aroma with a hint of straw. Rick, full-bodied, spicy flavour with a long, warming alcoholic and slightly bitter aftertaste. I wish I’d bought more than one bottle when I was in Belgium :(
