3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.33l. Pours hazy light amber with a huge white head. Strong carbonation. Bottle gushed. Aroma has only hints of yeast. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, malty, spices. Creamy mouthfeel. I like this beer. Good blonde. Easy going. Biggest drawback is the lively carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330ml @Gastropub Tuulensuu
Slightly hazy deep orange-amber color, good creamy beige head. Fruity and ginger spicey aroma. Foamy carbonation. Light-bodied. Spicey, white peppery, yeasty flavor. Quite dry and even a bit watery for this ABV. Quite ordinary Belgian ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Apricot-fruity aroma with shades of citrus, backed by cara-malt and a mildly spicy touch. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly sugary and juicy malty taste with a present spicy touch; sweet, mildly fruity finish with spicy notes. Ok, not a must. 12.XI.13

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red amber colour. Tastes like a hoppy dubbel. Well balanced. Mild Belgian yeast character and pleasantly sweet malt. Somewhat vinious. More sweet than hoppy but well balanced and not cloying.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Donker, amber van kleur. Mat. Neus: moutig, zoetig, licht kruidig (kruidnagel, gember?). Afdronk is kruidig, warm, maar koriander komt teveel naar voor. Voor de rest karamel. Licht zoetig.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
First impression was a gushing bottle. Beer I could save had a hazy orange color with a thick white head. Aroma was orange peels, fruits and spices. Taste was spiced orange and malt. Somehow a strange mouthfeel.

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - clear golden-bronze beer with a modest head retention; aroma of esters and chewy yellow fruits, candy sugars; a good malt backbone and pretty sweet, chewy fruity finish with more esters and residual sugars, lively and bubblegum-like

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Clear orange to amber colour with a small white head. Smells lots of metal/iron, slightly fruity but the metallic smells is blocking it. Tastes iron, ’lekbal van de kermis’, artificial sweet, herbs.. Bizarre mix of flavours. Thin body, soft carbo.
