3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 75 cl bottle (11%) @ home, BBE 02.12.2012
Sweetish aroma with pear esther. Flavour is sweetish with pear esthers, some alcohol, belgian yeast and ripe fruits. Also a feeling of plastic glue due to all the pear esthers. Dry finish. Very foamy palate is too high on CO2.
75 cl bottle @ Dickie’s, Bruges. Rated on 15.07.2010
Fruity and sourish aroma with some spices and earthy notes. Flavour has spices, fruits and earthy notes. Really rich, tasty and good. One of the best blond belgian ales. 8-4-9-3-16 = 4.0

Ljusgul, lätt dimmig öl med ett vitt lätt gräddigt skum. Doft av jäst, säd, viss blommighet och sötma. Lätt alkohol åt vingummihållet. Torr munkänsla, ljust bröd och viss kryddighet i smaken.

It looks exactly as it should, champagne like, clear golden with lots of bubbles. Sparkling. Dry beer with some vegetables, dust. Feasty and special.

What a fine beer, so dry and rich. Loads of yeast, esters, floral notes and a long finish. Grains are simple but hefty enough to balance the punch of the beer and the strategic use of hops, which are golden and mellow.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey, cereal, grainy, extremely malt forward. I had expected a bit more sourish flavor to this. Not bad at all, but not as I expected.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a cloudy gold with a massive off white head. Aroma of belgian yeast. Flavors of caramel, candi sugar and a hint of butterscotch. Very effervescent mouthfeel. Smooth slightly sour finish.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Skunked all to hell. Skunky aroma, skunky flavor. I could maybe see some greatness hiding in the background, but it was overwhelmed by the bad Heineken assy smell coming off of everything. Drain pour. Unfortunate.
