Bottle. Pale golden amber colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, bit spicy. Flavour is a bit odd for a blonde, sour and bitter fruits like green apples and orange, a bit of spices. Mouthfeel is rather dry. Don’t really like this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours hazy - yeasty in body texture, very mild carbonation, body colour is honey like, deep shiny golden, even oily but more pale than ’La Trappe Tripel’. Head is initially small, slightly off - white, foamy and quite quickly decreasing and disappearing, there in no visible lacing especially due to rather not distinctive head in that kind of beer.
Aroma: Very gentle orangy, orange peal, refreshing, dlightly yeasty, white wine grapes, white table wine, mild sweetness, some notes of good quality grains, wheat, white bread, fresh bakary.
Flavour: Grainy, white bread, wheat, generally more towards grains and maltyness with bitter hoppyness on palate and moderate hoppy nose, some minerality in nose and accidity on palate. Alcohol is perfectly hidden as for auch a pale blond Belgian ale. Reduced dramatically in its fruityness as compared to Dubbel, Tripel and Quadrupel. Finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry especially towards finish palate and aftertaste becomes dry, carbonation on palate is dry, finish feel ich chalky, flour, grainy with gentle and positively nice alcoholic warmth.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle in clay. Very decorative and smokin when popped. Golden body and a white head that fates away instantly which turns the look into something similar to apple-cider.. bummer. The nose is fruity and citrus-like with yeasty notes. The palate is sparkling and round. The taste is buttery with citrus-notes and toffee. The finish is medium lasting. Not very interesting
