4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 Re-rating after multiple occasions, draft and bottle. Lovely bright golden color with nice white head... gorgeous. Begs to be quaffed. Aroma is quite hoppy, with floral and herbal impressions, plus a tinge of zest from the yeast. Enjoyable hop bitterness carried on lively carbonation, nice dry finish. Still begging. Perfectly quenching yet with great character. One of the best beers in Belgium, still flying somewhat under the radar.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Small fizzy with head that mostly diminished. Clear pale yellow color. Yeast, citrus, spice, fruit, coriander and light floral notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Well balanced between the sweet fruity and bitter floral notes. Nice sweet spicy finish. For 5,2 % this is amazingly complex and thick in aroma and flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Trade with Otje - Cheers - A hazy light amber coloured beer with a nice big fluffy white head. Good spicy peppery aroma with typical Belgian Ale yeastiness. Bittering hops are there too but you really have to inhale to find them. The taste is bitter and hoppy but the palate is thin. A little spiciness. OK but not all that.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Delirium in Brussels-shared with bartender and a dude from England. Farmhouse summer ale with the funky nose of a saison. Yellow and not filtered with spicing throughout. Very refreshing and easy-drinking. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottle picked up at London Drinker. Opaque amber with the most fantastic head! Hops, orange zest and spice throughout. Some flowers in the aroma. Very light with a slight bitterness. Jsquire is right - there is hairspray in the finish! But its abrupt and is quickly replaced with spicey orange. More hoppy than I normally enjoy. Crisp and perfect for the summertime.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Lovely initial hop aroma juicy orange peel and leafy notes. Earthy fruitiness underneath this, the malt body is reasonably firm and drinkably dry. Not overly bitter in the finish but with a long flavoursome hop finish with slight tartness like a chunky orange marmalade. Very drinkable, good stuff.
