3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small offwhite shiny head. Deep yellow-orange body with strong carbonation. Deep harmonic aroma of tropical fruit and honey with bready floral notes. Deep sweetish spicy taste of honey and flowers with a bitterish background throughout. Carbonation in the mouth. Dry softly metallic honey aftertaste. Nice, but the taste is a harsh, somehow.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is yeast, grain, sweat and slight malts. Flavour is fruit, wheat, caramel, alcohol and slight honey. A rather sweet brew, which makes it hard to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330ml). via trade with Viper666. Best before May 2007. Clear gold with amber highlights, average white head. Mild aroma of banana, fresh grain, wheat, light yeast and a dusting of spice - slightly dry, on the sweet side. Taste has a little more kick - reminds me of banana bread tossed in a blender with a bit of Christmas cake - soft, sweet, some tart citrus to keep it in line. Pretty thick, sticky mouthfeel, excellent carbonation - nothing special but a nice drinker, and more complexity than I expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a beige/yellowish ale with a big foamy white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of hops is stronger then anticipated but well enjoyed with some familiar yeasty aroma also detectable. Taste is a well balance mix between some nice big floral Belgian malt and a medium bitter finish form Saaz (I believe) hops. Really refreshing and complex enough for the style.
