Draught @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Rated on 27.2.2013.
Pours a hazy brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, bread and some hops. Flavour of roasted malts, nuts, bread, grassy hops and some interesting herbal notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sweetish, roasty and nutty finish. Good.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft @ CML Fontainas – hazy murky fox brownish, creamy off-white head. Smell is very hoppy, the kind of hop levels I would like to see in IPA’s, earthly, grapefruit, light cheese, peaches and some pine. Hoppy grapefruit taste, touch sweet pine, touch toffee, bitter punch, peach skins, nectar, touch oranges, pine bitter in the back, USA hops. Nicely full but not too full body. This is how I would like to see IPA’s – beautiful stuff, my perfect level of hopiness, like fresh Orval…

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle conditioned 750ml, best by date December 2013. dull amber brown pour with a medium-sized off-white head and little retention. oxidized amber malt, stale caramelized honey and fruit and floral esters make up the nose. so the malt tends to work like a dunkel, it’s toasty, grain / cereal-like, but the apple, pear, white grape and other fruit esters just are not my thing. there’s a sourish, leathery pastiness throughout that’s absolutely unpleasant. paint-like yeast in the finish lingering. solid dud from a great brewery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper color with a frothy white head that lingers for some time. Aroma is citrus and hops, making me look forward to the first sip. Taste didn’t follow very well - the citrus wasn’t there, just earthy and roasty. Good carbonation on the mouth feel, but a bit thin. Overall a good beer, but not one that I would go out of my way to get again.
