4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre piwo o miodowo kwiatowym zapachu. W smaku takze wyczuwalny miod oraz imbirowy korzen. Ktory umiejetnie studzi slodkosc piwa. Piwo jest slodowe, malo chmielne ale jakby winna wytrawnosc sie trafiala w koncowce. Lekko metne. Minus za dziwna i nieatrakcyjna etykiete

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml. Veiled and coppery with a thick, rocky band of suds going nowhere. Zested nose with a distinctly Belgian, peppery coriander/chopped parsley profile. Moussey and perfumed with an archetypal, citrusy, green herb Belgian ting; ginger and honey swallowed by silk, lemon jelly, white pepper. The merest crumb of gingernut. Rounded, aromatic, satisfying stuff. Underrated because it isn’t expensive, rare or high in alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a delicious amber-gold with a bright and fluffy pure white head that foams enthusiastically straight from the bottle. Light coriander with a good dose of pepper and a little floral lemon on the nose. Quite dry on palate and the actual feel in the mouth reminds me of a chamois leather in a bucket of water - a little rough but dry, oily but a little bubbly. When the beer pours over the tongue there is a slight pause and then an intense white pepper flavour comes through but without the associated heat. A little coriander seed, a touch of ginger and then a slightly cloying sweetness which I assume is coming from the added honey. An aftertaste resonant of a lemon pastille sweet but not quite as sharp, maintains interest and this becomes quite dry especially across the tongue. This beer is almost a lighter version of a Belgian golden ale but this would imply a lack of taste or mouthfeel whereas this has neither. Very good.

Bottle. Cloudy golden beer with a very strong frothy white head. The aroma is very refreshing citric with some yeastiness. The flavour is very nice with a light citric fruity bitterness coming from the ginger, and a yeasty finish. Overall a very nice beer with more than a touch of wheat beer similarity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 L bottle, purchased @Kihoskh, København. Huge foamy blond head. Shady, deep gold colored body. Honey and bubblegum, mild spices and a fresh lactic-acidic-sweetness to the nose. Very unusual, very inviting. Rounded flavors. Fresh and acidulous, with some nice fruit tones and hint of spice and gently sweet malts. Ligh-bodied, easy on tha palate. Highly drinkable with lots of well merging flavors and aromas. Nice all over.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Slightly hazy vivid orange pour, thick frothy white head. Nose is nice soft caramel, subtle ginger and some honey. Similar flavours, touch of saison graininess to it, some ginger warmth at the back of the mouth and a slightly peppery lager finish. I like this.

Very hazy gold beer with good pale cream coloured head. Light palate but with some stinging carbonation. Minerals. Mild pale malt. A little sweet honey. Very mild hops that go well with the mild ginger. Dry crisp finish. All right!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Clear golden honey amber colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; Two finger head with beautiful, crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of malt, with strong banana, vanilla, orange, ester, caramel, sugar, light alcohol, strong Belgian yeast, and faint spices; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with molasses, light ginger, faint orange, notes of wet cardboard, yeast, fairly light spices, liquorices, bitter lime and sharp grass; Close to light body, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly close to a Belgian Ale. Malt is thinner tha n usual, nice orangey sweetness. Ginger is kinda dull, raw and bitter, taste is okay but in a negative way; Bel yeast dominates, no rice or adjunct tastes detected. Alright… Hoppiness is faint spicy nose, bitter lime, liquorices and sharp grassy taste. Lasting mid to low bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste, pleasing and bitter sweet to mouth.
Comments: This is a thinned Belgian Ale, with very nice head, fragment eastery Bel yeast aroma, pretty competent sweet malty taste with ginger on the dark side. A pleasing session Ale and I like it!

Bottle from Vino’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of rice, honey and alcohol with a just little ginger. A little bitter with caramel, honey and ginger again. Moderate carbonation and a long caramel linger.
