3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dessert-type beer. Sweet caramel/toffee, apricot, and wild honey flavors. Very, VERY mild hopping! Bit of an alcohol kick, making me think this was a bigger beer than it turns out to be. Some hints of banana and gumballs....making me feel like I might be back in pre-school at snack time, enjoying an apricot juice wearing a couple of Salerno butter cookies on my finger like doughy rings. I hope thatís perfectly clear!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unexciting beer with buttery honey sweetness, giving me nothing and the persistand yeast gets in the way, never mind the alcohol that would make you think this was a 10% beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber with a creamy head, this has an aroma of pale malts, floral hopping, and tart orange juice. Soft but creamy in the mouth, it tastes of soured orange, sweet malt, white pepper, hop bitterness, and, although not particularly strong, a touch of alcohol. The finish is abrupt, slightly dry. Drinkable, but not memorable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium white head, quickly subsiding. Clear orange body. Sweet vinuous banana-like aroma with sourish lacquer notes. Taste very like the aroma, very soft. Watery mouthfeel. Faint, lingering, peppery, banana-like flavours. No real aftertaste. Good, highly drinkable, but for a Belgian-style beer not that interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 330ml, filtered. Orange gold with large white head. There is a spicy, tangy aroma followed by a thinnish and slightly cheap perfumy flavour, bubblgum sweet with a hint of Bazooka Joe strawberry. Grainy and pleasantly malted, but overall a little too cloying.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep golden/orangey color ale with a huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of floral malt with candy-like sweetness, which is very enjoyable and reminiscent of the other beer from this brewery. Taste is also dominated by the candy-like sweetness and big malt. This beer does the same thing that Christophel did for me for Pilsner if you see what I mean.

11.2 fl. oz bottle. The head was nice, thick and foamy. The taste is a bit like bananas. Itís a light beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer started and ended poorly. It was a struggle to get the cork out. Anyway... Hazy orange body with no head. Aroma is fruity with other fun Belgian stuff. Almost a stale basement feel to the flavor which hurt the fruity taste. If itís not that itís the yeast strain... and I donít like it. Really an odd fruity taste, not good in a beer IMO. Almost no hop presence here other than a bitter finish. Maybe the bottle went bad, but either way I didnít like this. I wanted to like this but it just didnít happen. I didnít want to post this before I finished the 750ml bottle, and believe me... it took a while. I even feel like 2.8 is a gift :(

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Well, the aroma was great, but, no foam at all, no flavor, and the colour was good, but, I did not like it at all.

Lasting white head, peppery dry hops hit you at the start. Taste has pepper with a touch of anise and ouzo.
