3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Appellation wines. Spicy perfume aroma. Cloudy yellow brown colour, not much head. Bright orange & mixed fruit flavour. Smooth with bitter sweet aftertaste. Quite distinctive with the orange flowery overtones.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Filtered blond beer, small head. Mild aroma with grains, peach and unmatured cheese. Taste is much less full than expected of this brewery, kind of bland even. Light sweetness. Very disappointed. (On tap at Kafe BelgiŽ)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle. Pours golden-orange with a generous head. The nose has stewed cooking apples. The taste has more green apples all the way. The palate is at least medium in structure, though the structure seems closed. The texture is again tight but at least medium and there is a finish which is very cleansing. Overall, a very drinkable Blonde Dubbel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden body with minimal lasting head. Citrus and a touch of spice in the aroma. Taste is simple and easy enough to drink, citrus and orange once again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.25 l, at One Pint Pub, Helsinki, 20110325) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was white and quite large. Aroma was quite citric with other fruits at the background. Palate was quite light bodied and also dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, hops, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A weak and watery beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy amber with a small lasting head.
Nose shows doughy yeast and loads of herbal funky notes. A bit weird. Some hints of spices.
Similar herbal notes follow through as flavours alongside the doughy Belgian yeast and soft phenols.
Carbonation is pretty high, unnecessarily so.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard.
