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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is warm golden and the head is moderat. The aroma has nice notes of fruit and spice and the flavour has notes of coriander, fruit, flower, honey, sweetness and a nice warm touch of alcohol. The finish is lightly citrussy. It’s a nice blond with more character than most in this style. 1693

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 330ml bottle (Belgianshop) BB:Mar08 (6:3:7:4:15=3.5)
Mid orange, tiny head. Sharp and sour hoppy aroma. Also fleshy and light fruits. Very soft mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation. Very malty body, rich caramel, and soft but quite potent hops. Subtle but long hoppy bitter finish. Looking forward to having this again.
Rerate: BB2008/03, drunk 2011/07 (7:3:8:4:15=3.7)
Wow, this has aged beautifully. Super raisiny aroma, cognacy too. Sweet body, but also pleasantly nutty. No hint of alcohol. Beautifully mellow. Finish lacking as much hop character as before, but still a little biting bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bb Mar 2008, courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Orangey golden body, ever so slightly hazy. Thick fluffy white head that slowly went away. Spicy yeasty nose, some dull honey and agrumes Some dust. Light sweet malty taste, remarkably pleasant, notes of candied orange, slightly sourish and yeasty. Extremely weak cardboard is the only indication that this is a bit old. A remarkably drinkable blond and a very pleasant surprise.
