2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Wines of Gallilee, Tallinn)
Pleasant standard perfumey belgian ale aroma. Light grains but quite a waft of alcohol. Waft? I meant kick. Lightish palate, grainwise, and I like the bitter perfumey hops. Finish a bit pencil shavingy. Too hot, definitely. Otherwise had some merit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale yellow body, tall head. Aroma has sharp lemony hops. Sweet and dry-hoppy taste with more lemony hops and some green apple peel. Sharp carbonation and a warming alcoholic finish. Looks and feels like Duvel to me. But I don’t really care for Duvel - after a while it always starts to feel like a Sprite with vodka to me.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Murky apple juice color, nice frothy head. Aroma is a refreshing and well balanced blend of pine, lemon/lime, yeast, some soap accents. Big whiff reveals hint of blue cheese. Taste is very distinct (positive). It holds the middle between Duvel (sour) and La Chouffe (sweet). Sour is lemon, sour from blue cheese, hint of cactus. Sweet is honey, hint of dough, some saison yeast. It is quite a heavy drink though.
