3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 7th June 2011
Very hazy amber beer, little suddy white head. Dry and crisp palate. Very dry! Sweet caramel malt does battle with a sour tangyness. A trace of fruit before a very dry finish. A curious sweet and sour beer but the palate is way too dry!
19th December 2012
Hazy amber beer, good size white head. Palate is softish but with prickly carbonation. Sweet fruits - a little tangerine, tinned peach. Trace of raw grain in the creamy malt. Semi dry finish. Not bad, somewhat gassy and sweet so could not drink loads.

Giallo pagllierino con riflessi dorati, bel naso con note di miele e frutta tropicale.
Bocca secca e abbastanza amara per una Belgian ale.......buonina.....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Alla spina. Limpido color oro con schiuma bianca soffice medio-bassa. Aroma deboluccio con sentori lievementi fruttati e una parvenza di lievito; gusto piuttosto dolce, mediamente maltato, fruttato ma non zuccherino e leggermente erbaceo, lievi note vanigliate e mielose. Morbida al palato, di facile beva e non impegnativa grazie anche all’alcool poco percepibile. Discreta.

Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white head. Aromas are yeast and lemon with grape juice and green apple. Some woody notes with underlying caramel. Flavours are tart and sweet white grape juice with soft yeast and clean wheat. Melon with bready notes and tinned pineapple juice. Brown sugar with gentle spices and toasted malt. Peppery with resinous fruit to finish. Has some damp cardboard off-notes but is pretty solid.

Bottle @ De Molen 2nd tuesday tasting extravaganzza!
Infected bottle. Not bad, but not as it’s supposed to be imho.
Dust, barn, red fruit, some faint malt and a strong sourness.
Need to try it again someday.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2012 Golden brown with small white head. Champagne, from white grapes, juniper berry. It’s clearly off. Especially the sour taste shouldn’t be there, as well as the dryness. (At De Molen tasting)
Update: Had a fairly fresh one this time, Looks the same: golden with bubbly small white head. Grapes still, fresh oranges, some spices and a light malty back bone. Nice, light sweet. Develops a bit in the mouth. Pretty smooth, light sweet taste with enough flavour. A decent beer after all! (On tap at Italian beer bar in Valencia)
