3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From an 11.2 ounce bottle purchased at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a yellow-golden body with a small white head. Yeasty, fruity nose. Spicy with lots of funky esters. Quenching, smooth and finished dry and delicious.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
About an average Belgian Strong. Very carbonated which gave it a crisp clean finish. Flavor was a bit bland for the style. Not bad but better examples around.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the Pizza Plant. Was mildly disappointed as it wasn’t as full of body as Belgians usually are. Firm white head that disappeared quickly, cloudy gold color. Smooth, fruity, but I was expecting more.

Clear blond coloured beer with medium white head and medium carbonation. strong hoppy aroma. Sprankling full palate. Finish is very balanced, a little hoppy and dry.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours light gold with a big white head. Smells vegetal, some yeasty spice, herbal. Taste is much more bitter than anticipated, rich maltiness and herbal hops. Slightly warming. Finishes balanced with lingering herbal flavor. For some reason it feels like Victory Prima Pils made with Belgian yeasts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
Pours pale yellow, good deal of bubbles. Small, frothy white head nice duration. Aroma is a bit metallic, some yeastiness and biscuity malts. Light citrusy. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely sweet, good maltiness. Still a lingering off-note of metal. Rather sweet and the metal doesn’t do it any favours.
