3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful presentation of a dark yellow, hazy bear with a beautiful white medium head. The way the beer looks makes it clear it will be a hoppy, light bitter beer. The aroma is grassy, spicy and light grainy. The smell is grainy with... indeed: a hoppy and nicely light bitter aftertaste. In the background the taste is also light spicy. Not a bad beer at all, but I have the feeling I drunk this sort of beer already before. It makes me feel like a copy of the Taras Boulba.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate. Draught at ZBF.
Cloudy yellow gold with a decent bright white head and lace. Nice and fruity grassy hoppage with some good spicy notes and a decent bitter hop finish. Lovely dry feel. Quite similar to the Primular if I remember correctly.

It is warm golden with a light sediment and a lasting, huge, white and creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, flower and malt. The flavour has sweetness and notes of yeast, flower, fruit, malt, citrus and the finish is slightly dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drunk at ZBF. Hazy yellow beer with lacy white head. Soft, sweet, yeasty nose with banana esters. Fairly sweet flavor with a mild, clean bitterness, coming out more bitter in the aftertaste but still pretty clean. Another sweet, yeasty Belgian blonde with half-hearted hopping. Less than exciting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009)
Very hazy orange. Pineapple aroma, grapefruit too. Pleasant carbonation. Quite sour on the palate. Soapy taste - in part from the hops, but also a bit from the earthy yeastiness. That’s too dominant in the palate - it completely coats the mouth, and is too aggressive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Zythos 2009. Hazy pale gold, thin lasting white head. A lovely hoppy peachy good hoppy jaunty beer. Best hoppy beer so far of the festival. Good peppery hop.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Draught at ZBF09. Coriander aroma. Cloudy dark yellow colour. Very small stable white head. The flavour has a good lemon flavour with clean lemon peel bitterness. Also a little light malt to balance. Well-balanced. 6 3 6 3 16
Bottle, 7%. BB 2010, 2.5 years ago. Sweetish caramelly aroma. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is yeasty with a quite rough bitter finish. Did not benefit from the years in my cellar.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a small head. Lemony-fruity aroma with grassy hops, and hints of alcohol. Flavor is a bit acidic, with lemon and some gluey alcohol. Not much smoother with yeast. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not very impressive with gluey alcohol and thinnish body. Even the hopping is somewhat mushy.
