3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle from Etre. This is a cloudy deep orange golden one with a really good looking massive off-white head with great retention. Before the head gets a chance to settle it smells really fruity and filled with fruit sweetness. Nice. Peachy and sweet apples with zesty and yeasty tones all the way. Enjoyable indeed. It has a mild oily mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. The taste and itself is not as sweet or fruity as the aroma lead to believe. Still, it has some fruity and definitely floral touches. Semi dry, not much sweetness left here, almost a bit mineralish with hints of canned fruits like pear, mandarins and apples. Subtle but there. Ends with a hint of something almost grassy and herbal while it’s leaving a nice zesty citrus bitter aftertaste. Actually quite a alright this one! 17.07.2013

Dobre belgijskie Ale, Sygnowane Jean Chris. To piwo z oszczedna piana i sporym nagazowaniem ze stylowa i delikatna etykieta przypomina mi piwo kasztanowe z Amiaty. Kolor brazu podobny, zapach no i smak. Wrazenie takze mialem jak belgijski dobry saison.

Amber body and lasting head. Quality malts, light caramel, very classic yeast base, well, yet classically hopped. Belgian ales aren’t a particularly interesting style but this is very high quality stuff. Fairly clean, good bitterness, high yet fitting carbonation. Nice. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)
