2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold.. funky aroma, hint of vinegar, barnyard, spice, citrus.. mildly sour, lacks flavor; just not a lot going on at all, disappointing.

"i realized when pouring this i’ve never had a light Grand Cru before...til now. cloudy straw yellow, aroma of grassy hops, herbs and spices, belgian yeast. pretty basic, but light and refreshing. not enough going on to go back for more, though."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. From old notes. With herbs and spices, by the original maker of Hoegaarden. Very similar to Hoegaarden Grand Cru, but not quite as good. Not as rich and malty, the flavor just is not up to the other, although it is a pretty pleasant beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This seems to taste like a strong version of Celis white! Bright, light golden color with a thin white head. Fresh vegetal/celery aroma and taste with coriander notes and some black pepper. Smooth, creamy malt background with a slight nuttiness. Good alcohol bite that I think seems stronger due to the spice herbaceousness. Spices last long after the sip. Another great Celis beer that I’ll be hoping makes a comeback soon!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Formerly brewed. With beers like this one it is not shocking. Brownish color pour. Candy, yeasty, malts in the nose. Taste is kind of odd, watered down, and not really anything like a BSA should be. I appreciate the attempt at creating one of the better styles of beer to come out of Belgium, but this one was just boozy and unbalanced.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Medium gold, light head. Weak yeast influence, some coriander, hints of malts and hops; not watery but not full flavored either. Okay.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: clear very light, pale yellow pour with a large white head. Aroma is light with champagne, cider, wheat and a soft yeast funk. Flavor is somewhat watery sugary syrup with bubblegum, cider, wheat, yeast and alcohol. The flavor are somewhat jumbled and light with a boozy alcohol bite. Not horrible, just not one I would buy again.

Very light, clear, pale gold with a frothy white head.
Very little aroma....yeasty.
Mild...a slight nutty tone over the yeast....
A hint of white pepper.
Light, but still pretty nice.
