2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a great funky smell, but the rest of the beer falls short. It is quite acidic, which is something I adore in a good gueuze, but doesn’t really work in this sort of bitter sort of sour combination. The body is also very thin, so the flavours just sort of run into each other without much thought. The finish is sort of watery with a slight dryness, but nothing like the dryness I’d hope for from a beer with flavours like this. I think it’s a few inches away from being wonderful, but it misses the mark. Looks good though.

Bottle @ La Trappe Klooster, Tilburg. Looks consistent amber and clear, small off head with medium carbonation. Smell gives some caramel, yeast and herbs. Taste is strong upfront with a lot of presence from the herbs and yeast, aftertaste is rather smooth and somewhat sweet. Overall, a very pleasant beer I’d happily drink again on a day not too hot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, amber color with an orange tinge and a large, off-white head of good retention. Aroma of dark fruits, yeasts, and spices - just alright. Taste is sweet, its character is yeasty and malty with another doze of dark fruits. A medium to full body, a creamy texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is long, sweet, consummate, fruity, and spicy. All in all the beer is good, too carbonated though.

Van de tap @abdij de westerburcht. Mooie Belgian Ale, mout, gedroogd fruit in zowel geur als smaak. Mooie volle smaak, weinig carbonatie, maar dat verminderd de kwaliteit niet. Goed!

Genialne Belgijskie Ale. Delikatny owocowy na początku smak przechodzi w słodowy karmel. Godne polecenia.
Brilliant Belgian Ale. Delicate fruity flavor at the beginning turns into caramel malt. Worth recommending.
