3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Hazy golden blond with a tall, delicate white head. Aroma is yeasty and floral with fruit notes, soft spice, and an odd herbal note. Taste is initially sweet with strong malt and fruit notes and light candied notes, then transitions to a grassy, dusty yeast, and herbal flavored beer. Some floral hops come through as well. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Dry on the back end as well. Ends with more candy notes, sweet malt, floral hops, grassy notes, and dusty yeast.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 (15/03/2011) bottle@Pater’s Vaetje: yellow with fluffy/creamy head, served in a nice Lucifer snifter glass, slightly sweet, spicy/dry hops, fruits (bit of apple, minor pears), freshly baked bread, bubblegum, dry ending & overall dry, hint bitter finish, better than Duvel //// Tried an aged 75 of this one, bit more straightforward & touch less invigorating than I remember, still solid, prefer Duvel these days over this one

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a crystal clear, golden colour with a magnificent foamy, white, Belgian head. Great lacing, the head really saves the appearance, the colour is macro-yellow. Aroma is nice and yeasty, hinting lots of sweet malts and spices. Taste seems heavy at first, but isn’t really complex at all. Basement flavours and not much all. Palate is poor as well, some light bitterness that ends up seeming just a touch artificial. Disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stephen Rich’s bottle. An enormous white foamy head on golden body. Fresh yeasty aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, and good drinkability, creamy even. Good hops, this is a winner for pale Belgians. Het Anker does this one good.
