Bottle. Thin and too sweet. Sweet floral apricot characters, with a fizzy finish, and the sweetness remains to the end. Lightly watery finish. This is down there with Leffe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, In de Wildeman. Clear golden color, short white head. Aroma is very fruity, some strawberry, bit citrus, soft gueuze tartness. Sweet and sour taste, quite refreshing though. Very strange brew, but a nice welcome in the usual beer selection.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 27. This draft brew from the Erasmus pub in Brugge poured a uncarbonated transparent yellow golden colored body from a head that left a good lacing. The aroma was strong with an overriding yet good sweaty sock note and more mellow malty and doughy notes. The mouth feel was smooth with a vinous malty flavor. This brew was very yummy tasty and just plain good overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught)Totally clear gold; slim white head leaving some lace. Spicey nose, more than a little citrus; ginger & pepper - maybe grains of Paradise? Quite dry, but refreshing taste; grassy, as freshly mown grass, and malty, in the way the malt smells before kilning. Little bit of liquorice. Refreshing, like fresh mineral water, light MF, not thin. Light, but quite good refreshing beer, like an excellent pilsener, brewed with top fermenting yeasts.
