2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Bottle. Marcipan aroma, slightly acidic. Shiny golden colour and a big, creamy white semi-stable head. Bitter at first (not hop-bitter, but some strange bitterness which is not excactly nice). Sweetish semi-malty flavour with some sourness. Hint of mold.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Deep golden color with a large, foamy and pillowy, everlasting head. An acidic aroma of bisquits, banana and butter. Toffee-caramely, quite sweet and malty, yeasty flavor. Very smooth, although quite carbonated, medium-bodied and slicky-sweet palate. A nice and smooth, quite sweet blonde that somehow reminds me of Duvel. It’s not quite as balanced, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is
hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted
grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, mold),
with notes of clove, candy sugar, banana. Flavor is moderately sweet,
lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic,
moderately bitter, short. Medium body, velvety texture, lively
carbonation. Pretty nice Belgian golden, not terribly exciting but
nicely done...fluffy, good balance, pleasant aroma, lasting head. A
little too quick in the finish, thus not as seemingly flavorful as

Bottled 33cl (BB 12/2006)
Golden color with small white head. Sweet corn and malt aroma with hints of hops. Malty with a good amount of sweetness with some yeasts and maybe hints of coriander too. Lacks typical Belgium blonde bitterness. Quite easy to drink, refreshing brew but also quite plain.
