1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught Fully hazy amber-olive; good yellowish head, leaving lace. Nose of diacetyl, flowery, butterscotch. Honey, diacetyl, green beer AND glue. This is one amassment of severe shortcomings. Sticky, but the beer is refreshing - at least one good thing. Whatever did the brewer think of getting this beer out of the tanks already?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma of corriander and some sweet malts. Maybe some anise. Lots of fruity esters of citrus apricots and cloves from a high ferment temp no doubt. Some sourish notes w/ a nice drying hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean lemon-yellow body with a sudsy white head. Estery nose of light banana and citrus with a pale malt underbelly and clove-like notes. Very good balance of phenolic spice, nutty malt, and moderate levels of stale Noble hops. Light but noticeable alcohol. A very solid Belgian blonde ale. This would make a great session beer. Light enough to stick with but keeps your interest. Thanks to Stan Hieronymus for sharing this rarity straight from Belgium.
