3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Alcostock in Tallinn harbour (€ 2.49). BB 06.2017. Pours clear pale golden with a big creamy white head. Soapy lace, good retention. The aroma is that of typical Belgian yeast, it’s somewhat spicy, fruity esters. Tastes bittersweet, sugary. Quite unsatisfying on the palate, doesn’t really fill your mouth. It leaves a vague dryness and some indistinct vapours in the mouth. As such it’s what I consider a pretty mindless drinking beer that you shouldn’t really savour... Then again, it’s 6%. Palate dryish, body near watery light, somewhat grainy (wheaty) texture, abrupt bitterish finish. Overall - average. The aroma saves it. Edit: so does pouring in the yeast, it acquires a whole lot of character... had it been like this from the start, I’d have given it a 3.4 easily.
