3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vierte amarillo turbio con levadura en suspensión; media capa de espuma con escasa retención aunque siempre queda un cerco; aromas a levadura belga, manzana, pera, algo de clavo y floral; en boca entrada media y algo alcohólica con amargor moderado; buen cuerpo con carbónico bajo; pos gusto amargo y un tanto seco; cuando coge temperatura se hace más compleja, pero el alcohol se aprecia más de lo aconsejable; aunque esta botella de cerveza le hace falta más guarda para que se acabe redondeando, caduca 6/2017

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle BB 11/2016
Looks the goods - slightly hazy straw body with good sized tightly pack head sitting above.
Nose has a good kick to it; typical Belgian yeast character to it; clove, white pepper, ripe banana & pear esters, some white sugar & cereal malt undertones.
Full bodied, creamy texture, carries plenty of weight - you know there’s plenty of booze there, without it being too warm. Lifted carbonation.
Palate starts sweet - lots of white sugar, pale malt/golden syrup sweetness, combines with candied bananas, pear drops, dried apricot, and finally leading onto phenolic pepper & clove spices, a hint of floral hop and moderate-to-high bitterness on a dry finish.
Rather tasty Belgian blond.

Aroma of malt, yeast, ripe fruits, spicy yeast, light hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. Body is excellent, great balance. Great example of Belgian style ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is an opaque golden with a large white head and lots of large sediment floating near the bottom of the glass. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, flowers, wheat, and light malts, and the taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami. The aftertaste has a lot of Belgian yeast flavors--especially some light clove--lasting on the tongue, and the palate has a lively carbonation, which obstructs the medium-light body and slick texture.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Very good. As can be expected from Dupont. Opaque yellow with a creamy white head and just enough carbonation. Flavor is nicely bitter and a bit sweet.The 8,5% comes through but does not make it boozy. There is some floral, yeast and citrus and a hint of marzipan. Nicely bitter in the aftertaste. Could drink this all night!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours a bit cloudy yellow golden color. A mediun white creamy fizzy head is formed. Small retention but never disappears totally, leaving a small layer and very few lacings
S: Sweet and fruity on the nose. Honey, candy sugar, orange, orange zest, caramel malts. Belgian yeasts and flowery hops. Alcohol
T: Follows the nose. A sweet upfront and a dry and hoppy aftertaste. Honey, candy sugar, orange zest, caramel malts, citrus hops. In overall, a dry, citrus and bitter taste
M: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet upfront and intense hoppy bitter end. Warm sensation
O: Excellent Triple specimens. Mandatory for Belgian beer lovers

Hazy golden color, beautiful long-lasting tall white head, fruity aromas (apple, citrus, banana) with floral and yeasty hints, average carbonation, nice sweetness mixed with light bitterness, dry finish, complex and well balanced. Another jewel from Dupont.

330ml Bottle from Beers of Europe.co.uk - £2.59
Another highly enjoyable Belgian beer, this one was reminiscent of a saison early on and not being the biggest fan of the style I was initially worried but the funk, tart and Belgian yeast died down some and the fruit flavours and spice slowly took over. The beer was a well balanced some and despite the alcohol content it still managed to go down easily, While it’s not a beer that I’d go back to time and again, I would definitely consider trying again at some point in the future.
