33cl bottle on 27-Feb-2016, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Golden colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of yeast, grass and malt. Sweet bread flavour, banana, malt and caramel. Some clove, spices. Very similar to the blonde ale. Fruity, just a little stronger. Nice though.

sir__v (1989) - Lille, FRANCE - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle from Supermarket - Color: clear golden blond beer with high carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: caramel malt, honey, bread and yeast. Taste: medium body with caramel malt and really sweet taste. Honey notes. Balanced with herbal hops with still sweet taste. Not well balanced. Difficult to enjoy and to drink. Aftertaste: caramel and alcohol. Not really interesting.

Golden pour. Sweet Belgian malt aroma. There is a touch of herbal hop aroma on the nose with some light banana and apricot yeast estery notes. A touch of woodiness on the finish with a touch of soft sweetness. It’s not unpleasant but nothing really stands out about it either.

Smells like a typical Belgian ale, only not as potent. Pours a dark gold. Head that lasts to the end. Taste is that of a Belgian double, only not as sweet and with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Right amount of carbonation. Overall I was happy with this beer, although I will not be going out of my way to purchase in the future. I have one cellaring right now, so we will see in a few years.

Stern golden, fairly greasy looking haze. Soft ringed head. Nose is big bready spicy. Initial taste is a rich melony sweetness, brown sugar and lemon juiced. Carbonation is stern and mouthfeel crisp and soft dusty sticky. Finishes lean creamy icing sugar and lingers very light sweetness.
