3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The last of the three Maredsous beers available at the Hopdevil
Poured a lovely orange colour with a nice small persistant thick white head. This sure is a looker. A good yeasty, hefeweizenish nose, with cloves leading the way... notes of bread. The taste is pleasant and smooth, but like iths two bigger brothers, unimpressive and kinda dull.Yeast, cloves, maybe lime, glue. A noticable, odd, persistant sweetness. Long yeasty aftertaste, with notes of hops. While it’s not a better beer than them, I like it more than the 8 and 10. But it’s not a better beer really.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light malt and yeast aroma, no fruit here. Flavor is light and mild with some citrus sourness. Amber and a thick head. A lighter beer that is kind of refreshing. Not as intense as the 8 or 10.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from dove. Amber with dense white head. Sort of regal appearance, but I think it’s down to the glass. Metallic aroma with a touch of sweet clementine and grass. Taste of spice, hops and fruit. Every so slightly salty and bitter. Nice with my dinner.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is a slightly astringent lemon, with yeast and caramel too. Flavour is much the same, far too astringent... feels like it sat too long on the yeast. Diacetyl comes through in an otherwise clean finish. This beer seems a little "all over the place", but its still drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Orangy colour. Another fantastic Maredsous. Punchy nose. Limey flavour. Smooth kick. Subtle but definitive. Very good. Enjoying it.
