3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Not as sophisticated as its claims to have been around since 1240 age. More bubbly than the average blond. A strong bitter taste, though tamed by sweetness. Has more weight and consistency than one would expect.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2006 Bottled. Pours out a clean blond color, underneath a head of whipped egg white. Smell gives initial impression of Belgian sugar, but then a good "beery" smell comes in. Taste is the usual sugary Belgian at first, then the slightly sharp European hop note becomes noticeable. Goes down nicely, if a little gassy. Still tends nicely toward the abbey ale style than some Jever clone.

A nicely balanced beer. Seems like a mix between a traditional belgian ale and a pilsner, the hoppiness seems to resemble the pilsner. Pours gold with rocky, soild head. Spicy and citrusy, pleasantly light, but maybe lacking slightly in flavor complementation. Quite nice.

Moderate sweet malty flavor, a bit of weight to it, bitterness of hops is not very complex, a rather workmanlike but solid offering.

Bottle. Golden color with white head. Aromas of light toasty malt and yeasty bread dough, with a pleasant sugary sweetness over it all. Light palate, crisp and refreshing, but sweet and heavy enough to linger, probably due to the 6.6%-- a surprise in this one. Very enjoyable.

Golden light color with a bountful head. Heavenly yeasty sweet aroma, almost like fresh banana bread. Sweet texture in the mouthfeel. Full bodied and it is easy drinking. Light a little bitter in the aftertaste. A very nice beer.
