3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drink at Leuven. Nice Golden colour, it came with one big glass and a another shot glass which includes the last part of the beer.
I actually taste them both them and mix them. Well nice herby and fruity aromas with little touch of honey and aromatic herbes.
The taste is hoppy and slightly bitter but a mild finish ...
Very nice beer could be a nice night starter..

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, husks), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon), with notes of soap, celery, cotton candy, and alcohol.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Vegetal, husky, and soapy...a very clunky aroma. Husky and dirty aftertaste, so no fun in the mouth either. Drain pour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Pale golden coloured pour with a huge fluffy white head. Floral, hoppy aroma. This beer tasted hoppy but certainly not overpowering, incredibly smooth and easy drinking, fresh tasting, hint of vanilla, peach. Apparently the water used in making this beer is very soft indeed. I really like it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is a bit strange but not bad, it’s got citrus, cheese(yeast), malt, and a touch sour. The appearance is cloudy white with the largest head I have seen on a Belgian Strong Ale. The flavor is like the aroma with a soapy sweet finish. The palate is thin but OK. Overall I am not a fan of this one but it’s very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a small, white head. The bouquet is hoppy and a bit funky - acidity and pale grains. Medium-bodied with spunky carbonation. Nice bitterness. No weird Belgian esters or phenols. Snappy, refreshing, drying finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing top bottle. Shared with Arlo. Pours a huge tiny bubbled lasting white head, with loads of lacing, over a pale yellow (SRM 4) slightly cloudy body.....nose is light malts, great hop spice.....taste is light malts, then nice phenolics (clove, allspice) esters ( bit of citrus) with a finishing hop bitterness....mouth feel is light, carbonation, after the initial pour, is light. This a nice example of a Belgian Golden Strong.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden yellow color with a big head that disappears in seconds but leaves decent lacing.
Sulphur aroma with some pine.
Flavor is bitter throughout without much complexity or character.
Light bodied, especially for the style.
Best skipped, I think, although it’s a few notches above a drainpour.
