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.
