3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden color with a large frothy head that disappated quickly. There was almost no lacing left on the glass. I smelled malt, spices and some dried fruit on the nose. Very dry palate with tastes of malt, fruit and yeast. Very low carbonation and not. The mouthfeel wasn’t what I expected and was rather weak for a Belgian Ale. It seemed like something was missing as this was not very complex.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rhythmically ticking (really) murky orange measure sniffing of wood, candy and bananas. Flavour-wise, peach-like fruitiness, slightly smoky malt and pleasantly wheaty afters. But a dank, watery antiseptic cardboard back taste that really doesn’t convince. Echoes of Vieux Lille. Very disappointing.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Little cloudy, yellow color. Sweet aroma with flowers, yeast and wheat. Feels thick in mouth with right balance of carbonate. Didn’t like the taste that much. It has lots of different hard-to-define flavours. overripe fruits, vegetables (peas?) and yeast. This is my first belgian ale, and it wasn’t my kind of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 BALANCED. Color amber, gives will to fall soon of mouth at the beginning. The aroma is a chapter to the part, floral intense, felt me in Belgium of truth. Accented palate and balanced of banana and malt, a delight. If it has something that I can say against this beer I am the cream. In my cup, it was not nothing consistent and persistent........................................ Putzz loira maravilhosa!
Se me pedirem pra definir essa breja com uma palavra, eu diria: BALANCEADA.
Cor âmbar lindão, dá vontade de cair de boca logo no início. O aroma é um capítulo à parte, floral intenso, me senti na Bélgica de verdade.
Paladar acentuado e balanceadinho de banana e malte, uma delícia.
Se há algo que eu possa dizer contra essa cerva é o creme. No meu copo, não foi nada consistente e persistente.
Mas nada que atrapalhe tanto. Me diverti com essa loirinha de responsa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Ótima blonde! Cor dourada, levemente turva. Aroma e paladar frutados e levemente metálicos. Notas de cravo. Sinto também um leve floral. Álcool imperceptivel, o que para mim é uma grande virtude. Carbonatada, mas sem exagero. O creme se dissipou um pouco rápido. O amargor, assim como os demais elementos, muito bem balanceado. Não precisa ser tomada tão gelada: sua performance cresceu após alguns minutos no copo.
